Welcome to M2M One’s June 2019 Newsletter,

As we head into the second half of this year, M2M One will be participating in a great number of trade shows, which we invite all of our customers to attend.

In this edition of the newsletter we discuss our experience exhibiting at CommunicAsia, and the launch of the new 5G network on Telstra in Australia. 

As always if you need any help or advice regarding your M2M  / IoT Solution please reach out so we can see how we can help.

  • CommunicAsia

    M2M One were proud to once again be part of the Victorian Government’s Pavilion at CommunicAsia, which is Asia’s most established and relevant event for bringing together Telecommunications experts from around the world.  

    There was a lot of buzz this year around 5G, and what it might bring in terms of the development of new and interesting products.  

    As discussed in more detail below, 5G is still new and not really commercially launched in many places around the world – As such, there was still a lot of new developments in traditional 4G/LTE M2M and IoT applications. 

    It was great to see some very innovative products, software and services from a number of Australian companies presenting at the show. If you are looking for some help in improving the solution you have, or filling in a gap you are missing please let us know – we may be able to assist. 

  • Launch of 5G

    This certainly is an exciting time in the telecommunications industry. Australia is now one of the first countries in the world to have an official commercial 5G network, with Telstra launching 5G last month. 

    It is still in the early stages and coverage is limited (see here for current coverage maps –https://www.telstra.com.au/coverage-networks/5G#gold-coast) but this is common when  a new network is launched, and it is likely to develop rapidly over the next few years.

    We look forward to seeing what will become available in the M2M/IoT space on 5G – there are new standards taking shape which will need to be consolidated as part of the development.

    The beginning of 5G means that we are one step closer to the shutdown of 3G in Australia (please see our new blog series on preparing for the 3G shut down here https://www.m2mone.com.au/are-you-prepared-for-the-3g-shut-down/

    We are always having regular conversations with Telstra and our partners about what the future holds for M2M and IoT – we will keep you updated when we have more information on how 5G will affect your industry.

M2M One are once again pleased to be exhibiting at the Security Show being held in Sydney on 24th July. If you are in the area, please come and see us on stand B33 – You can register for a ticket here: https://register.securityexpo.com.au/SECURITY19S/

SIM Logistics

This month we explain how M2M One SIMs are delivered and activated.

When M2M One ship your SIM cards to you, they will be loaded automatically into your control centre in a state called Test Ready.

When a SIM is in this state it is live, and provisioned to use the Telstra mobile network. However, the SIM doesn’t become billable until you use either 20KBs of data, 4 SMS or any amount of voice calling.

This means you can hold a large stock of SIMs and use them whenever you need, without having to call, email or even press a button to get connected.
