M2M One Newsletter – July 2019
Welcome to M2M One’s July 2019 Newsletter,
In this edition we have a wrap up from last week’s Security show in Sydney. We also have some good news about revised pricing for our higher end data plans that should reduce monthly costs for those of you using GB level plans.
As we head into a busy time for the industry we would like to remind all our customers that we are here to help manage your fleet of data sims.
If you need help optimising your account please reach out to your account manager and they will be happy to conduct a free audit on your account to see where we can help you improve efficiency and reduce overheads.

We are happy to announce that we have a reduction to the price of the higher end data plans (500MB and above) effective from 1st July 2019.
At a base rate our prices have dropped by an average of 10% across the larger GB+ plans.
The new pricing takes effect from July 1 2019 and can be downloaded from our website here – https://m2mone.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/M2M-One-Australian-Price-List.pdf
As always if you need to have a commercial discussion specific to your opportunity please reach out to your account manager.
- M2M One at the Security Expo, Sydney
Once again M2M One exhibited at the Security Exposition and Conference in Sydney ICC. It was great to see this long running show still be so relevant to the security industry with a great deal of innovation in technology – Happily most of them employing M2M/IoT wireless communication!
As we have discussed in the past, one of the growth markets in the security space at the moment is the PTToC (Push to Talk Over Cellular) – where the two-way radio industry is being run over the existing cellular networks rather than dedicated radio towers. This was again in high demand at this year’s show with a much higher knowledge about PTToC from customers and visitors seeking out information on these devices and suitable SIM card plans.
There is also a lot of working being done in the AI and Smart CCTV markets – All driving to the need for more available cellular networks for back-haul. 4G/LTE has allowed this to happen and having good control mechanisms (such as those provided by M2M One through CISCO Jasper’s strong SIM management layer) allows solution providers to be efficient in managing their data use across traditionally data-hungry devices.
The one area that still challenges many solutions providers is two way communications to the cameras. Many of these cameras come from overseas with a simple instruction to get a publicly addressable sim. These are
a. Hard to come in Australia and
b. Very dangerous and should not be used.
You can learn more in one of out blog posts here (https://m2mone.com.au/m2m-tips-public-ip-vs-private-ip-addressing-for-m2m-iot-devices/) and always if you would like to discuss more on this topic please get in touch with your account manager for more information on the risks and solutions we can help provide.
We would also like to thank all of the customers who stopped by the M2M One booth to say hi!
Finally we would also like to say a big congratulations to Paul Bonadies from NAS Australia on winning the Business Card Raffle of the Ring 2 Video Doorbell.
M2M One are proud to be exhibiting for the first time at Telstra’s annual Vantage event on September 2nd in Melbourne. We’ll be showing our range of SIM plan and management solutions, as well as how we help support customers and partners across the Telstra network.
Following Vantage M2M One will also be at the National Roads & Traffic Expo in Melbourne 17 – 18th September (Stand 429).
National Road & Transport Expo focuses on road transport ecosystems including infrastructure, traffic management, smart mobility, parking and safety. As with many other industries there is also a large amount of growth with M2M / IoT solutions in this industry and we look forward to being a part of the expo. If you are in Melbourne come along and say hi – trade entry is free into the expo.
