In the second TelstraDev challenge for GovHack 2020 (part 1 on Communication APIs here), we asked: How can data from connected devices on the wireless Internet of Things (IoT) network be used to make our community spaces - our homes, towns, cities or region - more efficient and sustainable?
Here’s what our previous CFO said which is good: https://exchange.telstra.com.au/telstra-launches-narrowband-capability-as-the-internet-of-things-arrives/
Cat M1 is well suited to applications with data in the 100s of kilobits per second with extended range and long battery life, such as personal health monitors or devices used to measure vehicle performance.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical objects which collects data from the environment and connects via the internet. With a myriad of sensors that digitise the physical environment, we can pretty much connect any 'thing' at any time where there is internet access.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an all-encompassing suite of technologies, with dozens of options for connectivity.
Last year we were proud to announce our partnership with Arduino to help create an (read more about it here https://exchange.telstra.com.au/our-exclusive-partnership-with-arduino-set-to-fuel-the-growth-of-iot-in-australia/), IoT network ready, device for developers. For us this partnership is really important to help create an IoT network specific device that is quick and easy to use, while being versatile to prototype with and has a wealth of library support.
