Presenter: Dr Boyd Murray, Founder & Principal Consultant, Murray Wireless

What you will learn:

  • The various LPWANs available
  • Their differences - Pros & Cons
  • How to choose one
  • Their importance to IoT applications and solutions

Description: The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next big thing in the wireless revolution. It is a natural evolution of the Internet and, as the name suggests, goes beyond the connection of people to the Internet by connecting ‘things’ such as computers, machines, & sensors. The use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) as the communications medium makes for a ‘killer app’ which will explode onto the world in millions of applications and implementations over the next decade. This talk will cover how to choose an LPWAN from amongst:

  • LoRaWAN
  • SigFOX
  • NB-IoT
  • Taggle
  • Others.

About the presenter: Throughout his career, Dr Boyd Murray, has worked almost entirely on research and design of wireless systems including aircraft MLS (Microwave Landing Systems) for Interscan International, cellular mobile telephone networks for Optus, microwave point-to-point radio equipment for AWA-Plessey, and MIMO OFDM Wireless LANs for CSIRO. Dr Murray is now the founder & principal consultant of Murray Wireless, working in consulting, design, implementation & deployment in the Wireless industry.
