I had to laugh when I logged in recently and noticed that I had posted that Telstra had launched their NB-IoT network in January. Clearly this was an “announcement” rather than anything more. We’ve only now received some SIM cards to test on their NB-IoT network, and apparently even then it is only available in… Continue reading 4G LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT in Australia
So our staff go to some interesting places on holiday 🙂 Jamie is currently travelling in Iceland and is using our Digital Matter Sting device and a roaming SIM card to keep track of his camera bag while he is travelling. (better safe than sorry, given Alex’s recent experience of having his laptop stolen while… Continue reading Tracking A Camera Bag on Holiday in Iceland
How small can we go? We are continuously asked to design smaller devices but there is always a compromise. Smaller and lighter may be absolute requirements for some use cases but there are trade-offs: battery capacity antenna performance waterproof housing / IP rating …more on these trade-offs in a future article. Our latest design is… Continue reading Introducing the Digital Matter “Yabby” range of Asset Location devices

Despite being caked in mud and dirt the inside is clean and the Remora GPS and cellular communications are all going strong! We’ve found… Continue reading Remora GPS Tracker Gets Dirty!!
Telstra has announced at CES 2018 that its narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) network is now live across all major cities in Australia, including not only capital cities but also major regional cities. We are working on some exciting new devices that will be able to leverage off CAT-M1 and NB-IoT networks in Australia, and… Continue reading Telstra NB-IoT Launches…
It’s been a really busy 2017! And we’re looking forward to doing even more in 2018! In particular I’m looking forward to getting our first LTE-CATM1 and NB-IoT devices up and running – and bedding down our SensorData range of IoT devices. Among loads of other things we have going on… Have a festive holiday… Continue reading Digital Matter Devices – All Over The World
SensorData LoRaWAN and SensorData Sigfox came off the line just before the factory closed for Christmas. This is an early engineering samples run – available in Jan 2018. See Alex’s post for full details…. http://alex.digitalmatter.com/2017/12/sensordata-lorawan-and-sensordata-sigfox.html
