Creating a Local Internet of Things Network for Australia and NZ

Presented by Renald Gallis - Thinxtra

Renald Gallis TelSoc's next Sydney Lunchtime Lecture is presented by Renald Gallis, IoT Evangelist and VP Marketing and Eco-Systems from Thinxtra who will introduce Sigfox, the Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) network for the Internet of Things, being deployed in ANZ (already present in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland and covering 85% of the population by mid 2017). Renald will present the technology and how to develop a Sigfox ready device as well as few case scenarios of use.

LPWA technologies offer dramatically lower cost for sensing which unlocks business cases for data collection and enables virtual real-time and persistent monitoring. Sigfox is a leading LPWAN pioneer with advanced deployment overseas and an agressive program in Australia. Discover what it can mean for industry, how it can be exploited and dig into the pros and cons.
