  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?

  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-

  12. Attendees AB TK JB GS 1. Event planning for face-to-face meeting EA are reluctant to approach Alan Finkel, as they wish to reserve him for bigger EA events. It was agreed that Alex Zelinsky would be a suitable presenter – we will approach him through GS. We need to secure him before setting the event date (was 16 May but this is likely to change). ACTION: GS to action this coming weekend. 2. Review Webinar Program Meeting scheduled for 9-May Renewable Energy Case study. Arkady to host; AB is available as backup; GS can be wingman. Following meeting 23-May.

  14. Meeting opened at 12:00 - Geoff, Arkady, Marcelo, Tim 1. Event planning for 16-May-17 First face-to-face meeting. To be held in the evening EST. Rooms booked 5:30 to 8:00 EST in EA major offices with VC facilities. The main speaker should be in an auditorium to accommodate a larger audience at that location. Purpose of face-to-face is to help build sense of community. We need a drawcard to boost attendance – a theme and a topic. TK suggests we have a speaker (20 mins) then a brainstorm held at each location to discuss then present back to the audience. Consensu

  17. Attendees: Geoff Arthur, Arkady, Tim 1. Webinar Program With the forward looking program in place for the next month, we can adopt a more strategic view moving forwards. 1.1 Review program for topic balance Arkady who is less close to the organizational front and can take a more objective view than AB or GS commented that his view is that the balance is quite good so far – in terms of topic coverage and general interest vs detailed technical topics. AZ suggested that we should aim to have presentations on “best practice” in areas such as smart cities etc.

Core Members Virtual Meeting Thu 9-Feb-17 Participants: Arthur, James, Arkady, Tim, Geoff Notes taken by Geoff Preliminary Discussion - Webinar Program Webinar – weekly or fortnightly? – AB commented that there are plenty of topics – the issue was that of mustering resources to organize. GS concurred. We do not have speakers lined up for the next 4 weeks and have till Friday to fill the gap. We have till tomorrow to lock someone in for next week. 14-Feb – Arthur as a possible speaker* 21-Feb – James to organize speaker but can’t commit to host 28
  20. The CLICK series look like a useful range of relatively low cost devices for bespoke IoT/M2M applications. I see thay have an Australian presence https://www.directautomation.com.au/plc-pc-control/click-plc-units.html so presumably the devices sourced locally are C-ticked? There is a big risk that equipment which is not compliant with Australan reguations or standards will be directly imported and deployed - particularly non-compliant radio equipment. Also opportunities for distributors to pick up product lines for importation.
  21. There is a whole ecosystem of modules and solutions for connection of IoT devices via LTE, which are available on the market. The generic requirement is for an LTE modem (3G or 4G) which provides the connection to the network; generally used in conjuncton with a microcontroller based device which connects to the modem and performs the funcion of gathering and processing sensor data for uploading, or which implements downloaded commands for control functions. My company Genesys which is a sponsor of this community develops IoT solutions rouind our own proprietary modules. LX Innova

  25. 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
