M2M & IoT News for March 2017

Now that 2017 is in full swing, we are seeing more predictions about what this year will hold for M2M and the IoT. Overall, there is an expectation that security solutions will develop faster, as several malicious hacks occurred on vulnerable devices last year, including denial-of-service attacks, system viruses and ransomware.
Hand-in-hand with developing security is the rise of Smart Cities deployments. The last year has seen locations as diverse as the USA, Spain, India, and Singapore explore and develop Smart Cities strategies.
Within Australia, too, many governments are exploring hardware and
LPWAN options for deployment.
M2M Connectivity works with a number of leading cellular brands to offer 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.
