April was another busy month at M2M Connectivity, and you may have seen us
at the Connect Expo. If you missed our joint presentation with M2M One on
“Developing a Cellular IoT Strategy for Australia” it is now available on SlideShare.
A key area of interest is the emergence of new low-power wide area networks (LPWA)
such as Sigfox, LoraWAN, and LTE Cat M1 and M2 that will dramatically reduce
the operating costs for simple IOT connectivity.
From speaking with many of you about new and ongoing projects, another topic that is emerging is the growing need for dual SIM and or dual network connectivity for critical communications over 3G/4G but also between cellular and satellite networks.
The Dual SIM or multi-networks systems provide for failover should a device lose
connection to one network, allowing critical communications to continue uninterrupted.
M2M Connectivity works with a number of leading cellular brands provide dual SIM and failover solutions as well as working on solutions to provide cellular with failover to satellite – please contact us if this is of interest.
