M2M One – July 2017 Newsletter

M2M One Newsletter – July 2017

Welcome to M2M One’s July Newsletter,

This month we’re looking forward to exhibiting at Security 2017 in Sydney. The security industry has long been one of the most prolific users of M2M technology with early vehicle tracking and alarm panels evolving from CSD and radio technology to full IP solutions.

As cellular networks have evolved the security industry has moved with it, over the past few years we’ve helped support and manage wireless security solutions like: Access control, wireless IP cameras, lone worker safety, intruder detection, high value asset tracking, fixed line redundancy and more.

This year we’re looking to see what new innovations the Security industry will incorporate from the M2M & IoT ecosystem.

Digital Matter release Sting Long-Life GPS Tracker at Security 2017 with free trial SIM from M2M One

Visitors to Security 2017 can have a first look at Digital Matter’s latest GPS tracking product, the Sting. The Sting is an ultra-compact, rechargeable GPS tracking device. The light, temperature and humidity sensors set it apart from other battery powered trackers. It has been designed to track high value parcels, cargo, cash in transit, personnel, and other assets where super-long battery life is required without sacrificing the frequency of updates and performance.

Each month we bring you tips and tricks for getting the most value out of the M2M Control Centre.

Test Ready

This month we look at the SIM Status ‘Test Ready’ and how it can be used.

All M2M One SIM cards ship to customers in this state by default – It allows SIMs to connect to the mobile network and use resource without being charged. Each SIM in Test Ready state can transmit up to 20KB of data and send 4 SMS messages without being moved into ‘Activated’ This is ideal for bench testing an application before shipment.

Test Ready status is only ever available once in a SIMs life, once a SIM has left this status it can never be put back, but SIMs can be returned to a similar state called ‘Activation Ready’ – Which is a none billable state but has no test allowance, so as soon as any data is used the SIM becomes billable once again.

The show was an information-packed 5 days of talks, demonstrations and presentations on the future of Smart Cities, Infrastructure and Transportation.

The most exciting thing for us was the sheer number of solutions that rely on using wireless communications, sensors and other Internet of Things technologies to bring efficiency to both public and private transportation infrastructure.

Press Release – M2M One and ATrack Technology collaborate to provide 3G services to telematics and tracking customers throughout Australia

Press Release – M2M One and ATrack Technology collaborate to provide 3G services to telematics and tracking customers throughout Australia

Melbourne, Australia – June 18, 2015:

M2M One is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading Taiwanese hardware manufacturer ATrack Technology Inc. ATrack is one of the first round of companies to be part of M2M One’s new partnership program. The program is focused on creating a network of hardware, software and solution providers that can help new entrants into the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) space develop and grow their business quickly.

ATrack& M2M One are collaborating to support businesses in Australia that are adopting 3G hardware to benefit from the larger coverage area and higher throughput. These benefits coupled with the uncertain future of 2G networks and the shut down of Telstra’s 2G network on December 1st 2016 have driven companies to push their migration from 2G telematics devices to 3G quicker than anticipated.

From the launch of its first 3G product in December 2010, ATrack now offers a complete product line of 3G devices that have been deployed globally. The range includes the AK7 and 3G GPS/GLONASS trackers for fleet management and advanced telematics, AL7 3G GPS Motorcycle tracker, and AX9 3G OBDII / J1939 Plug & Play tracker.

Supported by Australia’s largest mobile network, M2M One services simplify the utilization of ATrack devices by providing complete access to the 850/2100Mhz 3G network, as well as a suite of management and diagnostic tools for companies to manage their fleet of M2M SIM Cards.

“We’re excited to be working with ATrack in Australia. We already provide connectivity to a number of their customers so a closer relationship is going to be beneficial for both organizations.” said James Mack, General Manager of M2M One. “One of the biggest hurdles for any business entering the M2M and IoT market is the wealth of options available. Through our partnership program we’re hoping to give customers a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on hardware, software and connectivity, and as our program grows we’re looking forward to working with more quality hardware manufactures like ATrack to make sure our customers can reduce their development costs by working with established, proven solutions.”

As part of the partnership arrangement M2M One are offering free trial SIMs to ATrack customers in Australia who want to test their 3G device and a discount on SIM card fees for any customers who want to migrate their existing 2G fleet.
