M2M One Newsletter – May 2018
Welcome to M2M One’s May 2018 Newsletter,
This month M2M One are exhibiting at the inaugural Melbourne MegaTrans event from 10-12 May at Melbourne Convention Centre. At this show we’ll be talking about how customers in transport and logistics are improving their monthly spend on communications by switching to M2M One and getting more control over their SIM fleet.
Straight after MegaTrans we’ll be hopping on a plane to Sydney for CeBIT Australia 2018, 15-17 May at ICC Darling Harbour, Sydney. As Australia’s premier ICT and Technology event we’ll be using CeBIT to talk to customers about how M2M One SIMs are the perfect solution for business continuity and failover when paired with intelligent routing solutions like Cradlepoint.
If you plan on attending either show, please reach out as we’d love to meet you and talk about your IoT strategy! If you can’t make either show, reach out to us and we can connect you with the M2M One sales manager for your state.
- CISCO Jasper SSL Renewal
M2M One’s Control Centre partner CISCO Jasper will be renewing the SSL certificate on the control centre on Tuesday 15th of May. This change won’t affect access to the control centre or usage of the platform, however if you embed the CISCO Jasper SSL key in your API integration then you will need to update to the latest version.
- Updated Pricing
We’ll be implementing new pricing for customers with over 10,000 active SIM cards in May, if you’d like more information about our bulk pricing please contact your account manager today.
- Phasing out of CAP Data Plans
M2M One will begin phasing out our CAP Data plans over the next two months. M2M One originally implemented the CAP Data Plans as a way of protecting our customers against overage by locking the SIM card when it reaches its data allowance. As CISCO Jasper have improved their platform and automation rules these plans have become cumbersome for customers to manage and cause more issues than solutions in most cases.
We’ll be working with customers over the next two months to make sure that we implement excess and data management rules so you enjoy the same level of excess protection with the added bonus of group data pooling.
Friday 11th May 2018 – 10:00am – 5:30pm
Saturday 12th May 2018 – 10:00am – 5:00pm
Wednesday 16 May – 10am to 7pm
Thursday 17 May – 10am to 4.30pm
Each month we bring you tips and tricks for getting the most value out of the M2M Control Centre.
By default when M2M One ship 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 them without needing to call, email or even press a button to get connected.
