Melbourne, 17 OCTOBER, 2023: Melbourne-based IoT technology company M2M Connectivity has formed a new collaboration with Hypha to bring unbreakable satellite connectivity to public safety and emergency service agencies in Australia.

M2M Connectivity is part of Semtech Corporation, a high performance semiconductor, IoT systems and cloud connectivity service provider. With its recent acquisition of Sierra Wireless, Semtech gained access to one of the deepest IoT hardware portfolios.

Hypha is a leading provider of wireless connectivity for mission critical communications in public safety. Its technology is used by a number of agencies in Australia who are moving to a data centric communications network. The collaboration will focus on solutions which combine M2M’s class leading IoT hardware and Hypha’s expertise in satellite communication.

M2M Connectivity and Hypha will create a new generation of data-led connectivity solutions, which will combine Starlink with Peplink’s SpeedFusion technology. The aim is to eliminate reliability issues associated with current voice-based systems, including unreliable network switching, and give agencies the ability to transmit images and video.

Darren Moroney, Vice President at M2M Connectivity, says: “Our partnership with Hypha is a landmark moment for critical communication. We are paving the way for a new generation of unbreakable networks capable of delivering ultra-fast, reliable connectivity in any environment.

“By leveraging our deep knowledge of network bonding technology, and combining it with Starlink, agencies can bolster their operational capabilities and provide efficient responses – helping to save lives.”

Peplink SpeedFusion allows multiple networks to be bonded, such as cellular networks, satellite links, and wired internet, to create an integrated and redundant network infrastructure. It also allows multiple Starlink connections to be combined to create an even more resilient network. The system also allows agencies to prioritise different types of data traffic, including time sensitive information, and uses vehicles as a node.

Neil Jamieson, Group CEO at Hypha, says: “Mission critical data for first responders can only be delivered by adding multiple bearers combined in an intelligent way to provide resiliency, coverage and reliability. Using the Vehicle As A Node (VaaN) concept with multiple bearers including LTE and Starlink in a dynamically changing environment with big data applications, means we will require intelligent routers and Peplink SpeedFusion if we are to deliver a mission critical service.

“This is not just standard SD WAN, or Least Cost Routing techniques we have used in the past, but a new way to ensure resilient, secure and persistent connectivity is always available to the end user, even when moving between multiple bearers in a dynamic environment.

“By combining M2M Connectivity’s IoT expertise along with Peplink SpeedFusion, Starlink, and Hypha Mesh Technology, we will be giving agencies the ability to ensure a robust unbreakable data link to user equipment available everywhere.” Neil adds.

M2M Connectivity are Australia and New Zealand’s leading industrial IoT experts. In April, the company announced its collaboration with New Zealand-based Marine Technology company Global Marine to develop next generation connectivity solutions for the marine industry and super yachts.
