M2M One Newsletter – November 2017
Welcome to M2M One’s November Newsletter,
In the lead up to the Christmas and New Year holiday period we want to make sure you’re aware of both M2M One’s hours of operation over this period and of Telstra’s network embargo to help you plan your service management accordingly.
The M2M team will be heading to ICC in Sydney next week for the Wearable Technology conference, looking at IoT in the Security, Healthcare, Payments & Leisure sector using wearable devices – For registration details please see the body of this email.
For this month’s Jasper tip we’ve decided to promote the new automation rules available to customers in the control centre to make sure you get the most out of this exciting new feature.
- CISCO Jasper M2M Control Centre SSL Certificate Update
If you are NOT using API calls to the Jasper Wireless M2M Control Centre, NO ACTION IS REQUIRED
