Home / M2M 5G Technologies

As Australia’s leading industrial IoT experts – backed by Semtech – we are proud to be at the fore of the next evolution in IoT connectivity – 5G.

As 5G coverage rolls out across Australia, we have brought together a comprehensive portfolio of 5G hardware and complementary connectivity and managed data services.

Why 5G?

5G delivers higher speed, lower latency and more stable connectivity. This unlocks the ability to deliver more data at higher speeds – across more devices. As 5G evolves, it will become the new standard for Massive and Critical IoT communication.

Since 2019, when 5G launched in Australia, it has evolved from consumer grade to industrial grade communication network.

Key advantages

For high speed

  • 1 ms latency
  • 100x faster than 4G
  • 100x more capacity – up to 1M devices per square kilometre
  • 10 to 100x data rates
  • 5+ years battery life

For low speed wide area coverage

  • Low power – 5+ years battery life
  • Seamless transition from LTE to 5G network
  • Greater network coverage
  • Targeted for IoT

Key applications

5G connections are expected to grow from 10 million at the end of 2019 to 1.8 billion by 2025. The next wave of 5G will support Ultra Reliable NR, Ultra Low Latency NR and Satellite. It has unlimited potential across industries, including manufacturing, public safety, supply chain management and AI.

5G is delivered in three ways:

  • Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC)
    Delivers energy efficient data transmission for wide-area devices. Ideal for smart metering. Includes NB-IoT and LTE-M technologies.
  • Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC)
    Delivers highest levels of reliability. Ideal for mission critical applications, including emergency services.
  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB)
    Deliver large data rates at high speeds. Ideal for high-rate streaming or VR.
