Products  Services  Contact


It has been a memorable year in IoT, with many new developments, as well
as saying goodbye to old network technologies. The Telstra 2G shutdown occurred this month, and we’re pleased to say it was a smooth transition
for many of our customers.

However, if you still require device support, or are just looking for some
advice on future-proofing your hardware, don’t hesitate to contact our highly experienced team of engineers. We can offer a full range of support services, from consultation to system integration, managed services, and of course, providing the right hardware and accessories for your project. Please see below for our Office Hours over the holiday period.

Finally, we’d like to thank you for choosing to work with us this year, and on behalf of the team at M2M Connectivity, we wish you Happy Holidays and a positive, productive New Year.

Darren Moroney, General Manager, M2M Connectivity

Libelium Plug&Sense! LTE Update

We are pleased to announce that all Libelium modems now have a 4G option,which operates on Australian LTE bands, including Band 28/
7009 MHz.

In a very fragmented IoT market, interoperability is key to ensure Libelium technology will fit any project. These new versions have been updated and
certified the following communication radios:
– Sigfox
– WiFi
– 4G
– 802.15.4 / ZigBee
– 868 / 900 RF
In addition, for those deploying in the US, the Plug & Sense! 4G US model is the first sensor device passing PTCRB and AT&T compliant device tests.
Security is another key feature of the new generation. 5 different
security layers integrates a system validated even for military use as it combines AES 256b encryption for data privacy in two different layers
(network and point to point) and RSA 1024 for authentication and
message integrity.
