Representing Australia, Stefanus Irawan, Joshua Stennett and Thomas Ujszaszi beat 16 other Asia-Pacific teams in challenges that tested their skills and knowledge of practical and theoretical networking.

The team was trained by Dr Karla Felix Navarro and Max Hendriks from the UTS School of Computing and Communications.

Set in a virtual "meeting room", the contestants undertook a theoretical exam and were given a broken network-topology scenario to test their practical skills.

The prize was an all-expenses-paid trip to the US to meet the CEO of Cisco Systems, John Chambers, in January next year.
