  1. Interesting development in the UK. UK IoT Cyber security Measures.pdf
  2. We just ordered a development kit from Myriota - the first one ordered! Due in 4 to 6 weeks. It comes with a satellite emulator which will be handy for development. We are aiming to be the first to offer a commercially-ready Myriota satellite comms module solution for Things. Geoff.
  3. I have customers queueing up to get Things onto NB1 - anxiously awaiting availability of cost-effective data plan SIMs, and Telstra-certified Cat NB1 modules. It is fiendishly difficult getting reliable information on this. Does anyone have any insights they can share?
  4. https://www.telstra.com.au/aboutus/media/media-releases/Telstra-adds-narrowband-capability-to-Australias-leading-IoT-network This refers to Cat NB1 (presumably).
  5. To answer Steve's question on project management tools. We have assessed and just committed to a 24 month license for http://cammsproject.com/,for integrated project management across the company, with an integrated timesheet system which they are modifying to tuit our needs (for a fee). It provides some collaboration facilities. I will let the community know how it goes down the track. On JIRA, we use it is a number of ways. I would commend it to others - especially good as it it Australian-developed, wo we can support local industry. For software development, we have an inward-

    Preliminary Agenda - Core Members Meeting 23-Feb-17 1. Webinar Program 1.1 Review program for topic balance 1.2 Assess effectiveness of recent EMAIL request 1.3 Discuss effectiveness of Open Mic – and how we can best use the format 2. BoK 2.1 Gap analysis and how to close the gaps (Geoff to lead) Lightweight Areas: Some gaps can be filled from content inwebinars held so far Chapter 1: Technologies Data Analytics Cloud Sensors – a webinar on generic sensor technology would be good – maybe a “guided open mic” session? Energy Manage
  10. The approach we are following at Genesys is to have a multiple way bet. For Wireless LANs, we are focussing on 6LoWPAN (similar to Zigbee but open-source) in both 2.4 GHz and 915 MHz bands. Networks can be configured as star topology, or meshed/repeaterized simply by turning on meshing in some or all nodes. To be most effective, the meshing nodes require a continually available power source - eg mains derived, or solar+battery. For PANs, we are using BLE - and WiFi for mobile device access. WANs are presently stuck with 3G/4G, plus a number of intiialives using Sigfox where it
  11. Eyeball Networking reminds me of a wide area networking solution we used last century - "SneakerNet", aka a junior employee with a box of floppy disks .... On the topic of conveying data from A to B and the independence of payload from the underlying data transport mechanism, any IoT system we develop at Genesys must pass the "Carrier Pidgeon Test" (with Carrier Goose allowed for larger payloads).

    Hi Heath, Welcome to the community. Please encourage the Newcastle IoT Pioneers to join, and keep us up to date on the group's activities. Geoff.
  13. Initiatives to mandate the registration of engineers, particularly those working in safety-critical areas, have the potential to significantly benefit society by raising the bar on professional standards and capability. Of course, a common-sense approach will be required to avoid stifling innovation with excessive red tape. How does this relate to IoT? IoT is really a term which recognizes the convergence of Internet connectivity, Cloud computing, mobile device applications and low power wireless networking, with low cost embedded microcontrollers and sensors. It represents a collecti
