Hello everyone and welcome to Destination Lorawan are stopped in Australia and today we're going to talk to you about how Laura went advances business in Australia with IoT solutions. We have a great show in store for you today with lots of good speakers. So here's the agenda. As you can see I will start off with my bit that you can see there. I'm going to let you read the titles yourselves and then we have 4 great speakers from our members. They're going to share some. Excellent news or not news, but they're going to show some excellent information about Lorawan and their solutions. Enabling io T. Now before we get started and get into the meat of this, there are some housekeeping rules that I want to share with you. So at the bottom of your screen, you're going to see these application engagement tools that you can move around or resize the screen according to your needs now. Also within that, make sure to submit your questions through the Q&A engagement tool. Now we actually are going to have a live Q&A session at the end of today's show, so definitely hit us with your questions will be very happy to answer them. And the last thing I find out of the sun networks do cost slides to advanced more slowly than others. And if you find that your slides are behind, you can simply push F5 on your keyboard and it will refresh the page for you. Alright, so let's get started. Anna hello again to you, my name is Derek Wallace. I'm a vice president of marketing for the Lower Alliance. The Lower Alliance is an open non profit Association where basically we focus on promoting awareness. An adoption of lower wind technology throughout the world and also and very importantly we develop and maintain the open specification that is the Laurel and standard we've been around since 2015. We are out there in the world. We're approaching 100. Last million sensors deployed out there serving IoT use cases all around the world. We've got lots of major carriers that are offered applying lower land in their networks as part of their multi radio access network strategies so that they can serve the greatest number of use cases to their customers wherever they are in the world. No more alliance. We have a fantastic member ecosystem. It is largest ecosystem within IoT and helping 1 technology and you can see some great names here. And if you want to know more, visit our website talk to our members and definitely with the former members that are speaking today, you're going to get a taste of some of the excellent activities and lower when that our Members are doing all over the world. They are the best of the best when it comes to Lorawan and they're all experts in IoT. In their own rights. Now. Why Lorawan for Lt wet? Well, let's take a step back a second and just make sure that you know. Everyone knows that LP Wan stands for low Power wide area networks and it's really important because when you're trying to connect billions of things to the world, there's lots of challenges associated with that. And LP Wan is a wireless technology that is really suited for connecting those things and overcoming the challenges therein. And in fact Laura, when was specifically and newly developed. To overcome all the different challenges of connecting all those different things in the world and all the different use cases that they support to the Internet. And we have lots of differentiators and benefits with lower line. Now I'm not going to go into all of them, however, there's a few that I'll point out and then you can read much more when you get the slides afterwards. And obviously you can go and visit our website so lower Wan is incredibly energy inefficient. In fact it has a very very low power consumption weather in transmit. Or at rest, and that really equates to very long battery device. We're talking four sensors or assets that are powered by batteries out there in the world. They can last 10-15, sometimes 20 years on battery Lorawan also has great range and excellent in building penetration. Penetrating through various such as wood, metal, cement, etc. It's very secure and it's incredibly cost efficient if we're going to connect billions and billions of devices out there in the world to the Internet. Very cost effective way to do that. And lower mine just happens to be. Very cost effective. As I said, Lorawan has been around since 2015 and it is out there all over the world and neibling and supporting a wide variety effect, countless applications and use cases out there. Lorawan is has 150 lower wind network operators around the world and 163 countries were lower when is deployed and what you see on this slide which is just fantastic is all the yellow areas there is where Laura when is deployed. All the green areas is where Lorawan is deployed and also whether or roaming capable public networks. That's 27 networks in the green area. We expect that number to at least double by the end of this year and within 1 1/2 to two years. We really expect that all the areas in yellow around the world will be green as well and will have roaming capability throughout the world, which is really important as the world really advances and IoT matures. An individual companies and governments. Progress on their IoT journey more and more than require roaming. An will require more roaming and lower when is going along lockstep with them by enabling roaming capability throughout the world. Alright, let's talk about Lorwyn in the market. So the LT1 space again, it's enabling very specifically enabling lots of IoT use cases throughout the world because of unique characteristics. Now Lorawan has been around for a while and really what you see is kind of what is being talked about on the left part of the slide, which is from an analyst firm called IoT Analytics. And basically what they're saying is that in the LP land market, there are two dominant technologies. Today, an also expected in the future. That's Lauren. Lower wine on the unlicensed side and never minarti on the license side. And in fact, when you look at the global connections by technology today and in the future, that's expected when you strip out China from those numbers, you find that the narrowband IoT shipments around the world is much lower than the percentage that you see here. An Lorawan is deployed everywhere all over the world. If you saw from the last slide. But it's definitely fair to say that both technologies will serve the massive. That's a huge market that is IO T, because there are just so many different use cases out there. And when you do your own search and do your own research, you're going to find most of the analysts firms out there in the world are saying this very same thing that lower and lower win and never vanity are the two technologies. Now let's also interested in the slide and that I love is that at the bottom right there's a quote from global market insights that talks about the lower one segment is anticipated to dominate over 2021 to 2027. Like said in the last side were all over the place were out there in the world. And and serving the needs of coyotes cases everywhere. Now, what's really important? Or, you know, if you don't already know, and io T there is not one silver bullet technology, there's not one technology that's going to serve the needs of every use case that's out there. And in fact, what I've always said, and my careeer is that you really need to understand the needs of your use case. What are the requirements for the challenges that you're trying to overcome? And then you pick the technology that best serves those use cases. And from our perspective, within the alliance, what we see looking at the common challenges in the different areas is out. Lorawan is really ideally suited for volume IoT, massive IoT IoT that really requires. Massive scale because of the differences, so in differentiators Now I talked about some of them before, but just to be very clear in comparison to Laurelton narrowband out, he lower Wan has superior power consumption enabling devices to last longer and has better building penetration to get through objects. It also supports roaming and both forms of roaming. So whether you are have devices that are moving all over the world or you are an Australian company and your shipping devices to a different market and then that device wakes up and activates on a network and that other market, well, that's a former roaming as well, because that device is not tide to its home market network in Australia. Also, this is really important as well. Lorawan supports private, public and hyper network. It gives that business model flexibility as well and this is extremely important and so many of the massive IoT industries that you see in the left part of the slide. Because there are plenty of times where people are going to want to build and deploy their network exactly where they want it and when they want it, they're going to want to have control over the data of that network over the applications that that network. Support sometimes those networks are in areas. Where there is no other wireless communication technology and definitely not solar based technology. So with Laura went in the ability to build their private network and those locations really enables even more IoT use cases. And of course, Lauren has public network operators all around the world. As I said earlier, there's 150 public network operators around the world. No, never. Variety is also a very good option depending on the use case as well, you know it's important to be fair and to point out that we see that Nirvana T is actually quite good. If you have critical IoT needs, especially if you need quality of service and if you need lower latency nearby. 90 and often those are critical IoT use cases that have those requirements, and narrow manatee is really great for that. So at the end of day again. Figure out what the needs are. Use cases are understand the challenges that you're trying to overcome, and then pick the best. In this case Lty and technology to meet those needs. And what generally is true? What I found to be true? Having worked in this space for several years now is that the more that your use case needs to solve a massive IoT challenges of battery of roaming of public or private network capability, range penetration. You know, the more of those issues your use case needs to solve, the more lower land really is the best technology for you. But don't take my word for it. Listen to some of our speakers as well as you also do your own research. So just kind of get out of screen. Share out of this view just for a moment so I can introduce our guest speakers. So today we have some actor bully. He is the regional sales director at activity and he has an extensive history in design and an architecture for IoT and mobile data networks. After joining activity in 2015, he helped evangelize Lorawan in the APAC region and is currently fostering the growth for both public and private networks. Then we have a man Karim APAC business development manager IoT at digital matter. When he isn't helping businesses across Australia and New Zealand market sell and deploy their own asset management solutions, he serves as an advisor for IEEE and was the former chair of the IEEE Young Professionals and former treasurer of I of the IEEE Computer Society. And then we have Tony Tilbrook. And his strong technical and business experience combined with a track record of strategic and planning development, improving business outcomes and achieving process objectives help to drive the vision, planning, design and deployment of in an ENCODE data middleware platform. End to end deal. And last, but certainly not least, because is Maria and she is not least 'cause she is actually our first speaker today Maria is. Excuse me, Maria is the business development director at Lacuna Space. She works to expand partnerships, promote their services, and support business growth into new markets. She has over 15 years of experience in the space sector and holds a PhD and satellite networking, which honestly that just impresses me. Maria is also a passionate supporter of women in tech. So Maria, I will hand it off to you to continue today's show. Thank you Derek. So now let's go and see some Lorawan in action. Hello everyone, it is such a pleasure for us to be able to present to our audience in Australia today. I will be talking to you on how we act like in a space, enable large scale deployments everywhere across Australia using Laura one and satellites. Now first up what's the problem with trying to address? Why would you get your data from outer space? So what we see in Australia and in fact across all daddy duties around the world is that US cellular networks. It's sometimes challenging for the program networks to cover an entire territory OK, and that is obviously for very good reasons, but using satellites we can offer 100% global global coverage, so pretty much same as your GPS satellite network panel for Lora Wan connectivity everywhere around the world, like in a space we plan to launch 240 satellites, but obviously we have to do that in stages. The service is available now using the first few satellites. But next year we're going to be launching another 12 satellites, which will mean that a device on the ground will be able to transmit to the network approximately every one to three hours, depending on where it is in 2023 we will be launching another 12 satellites, which will have almost this transmission interval, and we will keep launching them again, and we will keep reducing this delator, so we're not here to replace networks on the ground. But we're here to extend their coverage, and in fact, what we see very often from customers is the waste to actually combine the two types of networks using the same devices. So say for example, tracking device can be important and you can use the ground network, which is high capacity in real time, but when it's outside the perimeter of that it can pass over to the satellite network African space, and this is obviously available things to Rome. So from the beginning of our creation, we always wanted to make it super easy for people to upgrade their devices. Filipina space. So how easy is easy? Science is an examples, so the only difference in hardware between a standard Laura based device and electronic device is a small local. Santana is working in the same frequency bands as regional Laura one, so you can also communicate with the ground network. Now this antenna, for example has a diameter of about 8 centimeters and it costs about $8.00 a scale. And what we mean scale is. Beyond 250 units, we also wanted to make it very, very simple to do networking to crash. So because we use native Lorawan we deliver Lorawan messages directly to the server. So if for example your customers of activity and using activity you do not have to change any of that and any of your back end to communicate with mistakes. So let's now look at some applications and some use case. What do people do with our network? So we focus on connectivity and we work with partners that develop devices and also do integration of the ground. So I've already mentioned tracking and that is obviously a very popular application of the network, but we also do a lot of monitoring over remote assets. The energy of the networks are very very good example. Smart agriculture is a really popular application, especially so in most of sensors. For Australia we do quite a bit of environmental monitoring and wildlife monitoring as well. Now we also work with ground networks that as an anchor in Australia to extend their coverage but also as local resellers. Now let's go into some obligations in a little bit more detail. This one, we have a diploid in Australia yet, but the mention it because we have had quite a few inquiries, so we're working with a French company called Edge Technologies and they manufacture sensors for the oil and gas market. So we are working with them to actually make these sensors space reading. So again we have got quite a few collective interest from Australia. Monitoring oil wells and gas wells that are in remote areas in the country. We are also working with my adventures, so we're monitoring water level and we are implementing a drought early warning system for remote islands in the Pacific. Obviously this is something that we couldn't be doing before without the use of satellite networks. Just the last example, so we're working with Eco mode in NZ for the country's wildlife protection program. So economic, do smart traps and using Lorawan. And like in a space means that people don't have to go round all the different traps and take what has been happening. So obviously that is a very big cost saver. So let's kind of sum up now why it is actually a great combination to be using Lorawan and satellites. So first up, as Derek said, Laura one is very very low power and we used the same level of power for Laguna device as a normal Laura. One devices which means that they are truly fit and forget especially for trackers in large quantities. That actually makes a big difference for customers also. We can benefit. We use. As I said, we use the same frequency bands as ground Lorawan networks and these obviously tend to be Open Access, which again as a satellite system is a very big advantage for us. I think we should never underestimate the enormous choice that. Customers have sourcing the different components from the lore of an ecosystem, and again we are very very lucky to be part of that. So our solution is also very close deficient, so we've always gone by the premise that it's not because it's satellite that it should be more complicated, and it's not because it's not like that that it should be more expensive. OK, so I solution same as any lower one. Solution is very cost efficient when we consider the whole system. So we often say that Laura ones very low power, so I also like to give this example because at the end of the day you can always look up the numbers on the power consumption of the ice transceivers and the devices, but we've actually worked with a company called Plantae. The two energy harvesting from plants, so our services as low power as you know, so it's it's so low power that you can actually power it just from energy. Listing from plants. So I hope I have inspired you today to try Laura one even for an application that you felt that connectivity was very difficult to get. So please do contact us to try it out. We have a technology partnership program which is open for device makers and device manufacturers, but we also have an evaluation service. If you just want to try out the service without building any devices or any technology. We also wanted to make it. As easy as possible for anyone to upgrade their devices to work with electrical network. So come September 2021, we're going to be releasing low cost development kids in very large quantities, so thank you very much. Please do get in touch and now I'm going to be handing over the man from this time. Other thank you very much. Thank you Maria. This is the man calling in from this matter. I hope everyone is doing well. So today I'm going to be talking about as the tracking on our van, highlighting a few benefits an A few business cases that we've done in the enzed Australia, New Zealand. So if you haven't worked with us before, we are the global leaders in battery powered asset tracking. We've been in the business for about 20 years. We are a global company an our headquarters is based in Perth and we manufacture all of our devices in South Africa. So here's a sort of coverage map as to where we deployed our devices. Note that some devices have been turned off or are still being deployed. So here are some benefits of asset tracking for businesses with Laura Van. So you can see where your assets are and where they have been. For historical visibility you can increase productivity by spending less time on searching for assets, and so less downtime you're making more money. You can minimize asset Lausanne prevent theft so and also reduce asset replacement so you know where things are and you're keeping it safe. You don't have to keep replacing them every few years if you lose them. The cool thing about acid. Thing is that some of these asset trackers have accelerometers and temperature sensors, and from that you can monitor different parameters including runner monitoring, and it enables predictive maintenance and so you can really increase the lifespan of a particular device, particular asset, an also minimize unexpected maintenance which could be quite expensive. Using asset trackers you can get different sort of alerts so alerts based on movement. If, let's say, an example an acid were to leave a particular area of particular dear friends, you know that asset is being stolen. For example, you can also get things like haiji events using extra meters. So for example, on a mindset, if someone were to bump into a expensive asset, you know then and where where that happened that even happened. So this really has been enabled with Laura van because it creates a stronger ROI. So long range Network lets you scale over large areas. It's really great for remote deployments. As direct mentioned previously, it's also cheaper, so there's no ongoing costs where you would have very traditionally if you were to engage with a Telco offering a similar service, you would have to pay for SIM card or a every month. The cost of hardware is also cheaper. Any competitor, one device to a cellular device. The devices are much more power efficient, so you can save money on replacing and putting in brand new mattress. And so finally creates a nice little package. Strong ROI for businesses. So you can basically track anything nowadays because asset trackers have become so small so you can track things like. Surfboards to stuff our trolleys on an airport, cable, drums, skip pins, trucks. You can do things like beehives, cattle and so much more so it opens up a lot of opportunities across different verticals. So here is one of our latest device is called the Yabby edged and and the reason why I bring this up is because this particular device has a few variants alarm an an Excel a variant. What's cool about this device is that it normally does GPS tracking for outdoors but also Wi-Fi sniffing for indoors and you can see that Lauren version is running just on two batteries and has an extensive battery life of 12 years. And you may think that hey, it's just one battery. What difference does it make? So when you look at lot of an annual tradition, deployments people diploid over multiple sort of numbers. You're looking at 10,020 thousand units and every single penny that you can save counts, and so putting it all together narrowband the hardware, cheaper the cost of batteries is down because you're using less number of batteries. The ongoing charges are low and also you're not set spending time changing batteries by sending people out there and having more down time. So here are some business cases across Australia and New Zealand. First off, we can talk about Mainfreight, which is a global logistics company. This is a use case that is particularly focused in New Zealand. We are working with Spark. A lot of our network condenser and the issue that they have is that they have quite expensive bins that go missing and they have quite hazardous waste including toxic chemicals and radioactive material. It is a big public safety issue and the issue is that for Main St in the logistics or the operation Sense is that they don't know where these things are and so they're not able to. Make up make the collection routes a lot. The collection draws are not optimized at the moment because they're using paper. Methods are very traditional tracking methods, but with asset tracking Overlord and they know exactly where things are and so they could save a lot more money. Next one is from Dexa fan Deck is an end to end solution by out comics a partner of ours in Sydney and they are focusing there are solutions in the agriculture space and one of the main issues in the agriculture farming sector is that people keep falling off quad bikes and this cause a lot of safety incidents whether it be death or injury. So by putting asset trackers and vehicle trackers onto vehicles, you're able to know exactly where these quad bikes are and also when they flip over. Up to an extension to that, not only do they track vehicles, but they can also track cattle. Quite expensive if you are in the meat producing gusty for example, and also by putting trackers on different equipment and machinery, you know exactly how long the asset has been used and so you can limit maintenance and also costs. The next one is smart features and this is a program by a few councils in New South Wales and we're working with a partner called Mesh Tools. A lot of an network provider. And the issue that they're facing is that they are often losing assets, and sometimes even people, and so by putting asset trackers they know exactly where people are similar to the previous slide. They also use quad bikes, want expression that is special over here is that they're using some of our asset trackers that have extra meters, and so they able to judge the angle of certain safety flags that they put out in beaches to mark where it's safe for people to go out there. And so it's quite different from the traditional business, but what I'm trying to say is that if the communities community or Council is safer, the beta, say for a lot more people would come in tourism, and so businesses around are happy. So to sum things up, and it Lorawan has really made a stronger ROI for asset tracking for businesses, low cost hardware, low cost networks, long life and good Rangers, it increases productivity, reduces replacement costs and also extends the life of certain assets. Yeah, if you have any questions about what I've discussed, I hope you learned something today. You can always email me an also hit me up on LinkedIn or visit Digital Matter website. I'm off to actively Sumac is going to present the next slide. Thank you man. Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to attend this webinar. Today I will be too. About connected workers and will start with short introduction to activity. Activities the French based company, and was founded in 2008. Activity was the first company to build and deploy a commercial Lorawan network server and today has over 35,000 Lorawan gateways commercially connected to public networks, and we've made more connected on private and community networks. Active listing park Industrial Q an arty connectivity platform is enabling carry grade, lower line connectivity for more than 50 public operators. Activity also has an enterprise grade platform. A private lawyer. My networks called think like Enterprise which powers many hundreds of small to large enterprise private networks. Actually also has a low and smart tracking solution developed in partnership with Abby Waco Theme Park location and recently we have seen major accelerations. My tracking deployments an over the past 18 months actually deployed over 200,000 Abby weight trackers. One of the most in demand and interesting use cases has been connected workers, which will be the focus of today's discussion. So think bug location is a multi technology solution helping unlock value for low power tracking use cases. It combines Abbey Way trackers with activities, modular location engine and can be used with non activity in network service. The theme park location solution combines low power low line communication with advanced location solving algorithms, an complementary technologies including bling sniffing, Wi-Fi sniffing. GPS an low power GPS Abbey way supplies for types of trackers. There is a compact tracker, an industrial tracker, and these are for asset tracking. And then there's the micro tracker and smart bed which are for people and worker tracking. These personal trackers are include SOS button, Eli D light and loud buzzes which make them perfect for connecting workers. The unique aspect of theme Park location is that it has been integrated with complementary technologies, so to serve wider range of use cases and by doing so we have delivered the low cost solution with very long battery life which is highly versatile. And as it can seamlessly track between tracks through indoor and outdoor. Other than supporting traditional GPS GPS, which as you may know is very heavy on battery usage. At that low power GPS feature which calculates the GPS location in the theme park location cloud rather than locally under device which can improve battery life by factor of five to six X. The devices also have the capability to triangulate location for both indoor and outdoor through Wi-Fi SSI SSID sniping. Simulate the devices can triangulate location through sniffing. For low energy Bluetooth beacons which is very handy for those precise indoor tracking use cases. There's also an embedded algorithm on the devices which facilitates switching between location technologies so the device can choose the most adapted technology based on the environment. For example, the tracker can track indoor based on Wi-Fi, BLE sniffing and then switch to low power GPS when it transitions outdoor. With all these Geo location technologies combined into a single solution, you will have a very powerful and flexible offering which can meet almost all tracking and use cases. So to successfully deploy attracting use case at scale, it requires finding the optimal balance between power efficiency, accuracy and costs, and the left you see that GPS is the most accurate, but also the most power consuming option and the most expensive because of the GPS chip that's required in the sensor. The low power GPS provides significant battery optimization, but the tradeoff will be slightly less accuracy. Using Wi-Fi sniffing is also is a very cost efficient solution. Anan relatively good on battery. The accuracy can range 5 to 30 meters. An improves with increased Wi-Fi hotspot density. BLE sniffing is is the most well. It's a. It's a very power efficient compared to the other ones. An has a high accuracy of 1 to 7 meters and is ideal for indoor tracking use cases which require very high accuracy. Under right is comparison of the power efficiency for various technologies. You can see that using technology like Lorawan for the back foot of communication with specifically built for low power, IT can increase battery lifetime by a factor of 10 when compared to cellular and solutions. This is important as battery lifetime has a big impact to the overall TCO after use case. Now how can I connected workers there? Millions of industrial workers in the world and their organizations are facing a complex task of managing large number of people and assets on site while maintaining safe and efficient operations. The digital revolution is transforming and solving these challenges, but equipping equipping workers with IoT devices to achieve a whole new level of operational productivity and health and safety. One key benefit of the equipping work has been an IoT device like the. Heavyweight Person Tracker is to improve workers safety and this is achieved through receiving Mandan alerts by automatic fault detection. An activation of SOS button button by the worker in addition restricted and hazard areas can can be geofenced to alert supervisors to take action, which I'll discuss a bit more later. Another benefit is that supervisors and receive access to insights at the work sites which helped helps workforce planning and. Optimization many of these construction projects are at Greenfield sites or in very remote areas where there is poor or no cellular coverage. The benefit to deploy this technology is that they can deploy a private Lauren network. We tailored coverage for aside at a fraction of the cost compared to diploid other technologies. The other major benefit is that lower line is very power efficient technology technology, which means the trackers will need will not need. I'm recharging for days or weeks depending on the usage type. So I quickly go over few deployment examples. This was a solution deployed on an enclosed carrier grade. Lower one network for one of their customers in Australia which wanted to monitor contractors at industrial sites for worker safety and productivity. This customer regularly schedules industrial site shutdowns for maintenance work and employs hundreds of workers on site per week for multiple weeks, mostly. Mostly sides are remote. With no coverage from cellular networks, and the only cost effective solution was to deploy Lauren Networks at the site they selected Abby Way Smart Badge because they wanted power efficient device with long battery life to cover multiple work shifts and also wanted to track work as seamlessly indoor and outdoor and monitor their access to restricted areas using combination of GPS, an barely technology. This this PHP workers safety use case came came about after BSV had a few emergencies at sites which required full site evacuation and the challenge BHP wanted to address was accounting for all workers during site evacuation, with the mines being remote enlarged. Lorawan was the best solution to be diploid because if you Lauren Gateways and they could create large customized cover it customized coverage at the at my side for very low cost beach. Feels that had very high security requirements needing their platform and data to sit in the net. Network behind their basically firewalls, so they diploid a private on premises, lower my network using think park and enterprise which met those security requirements for them. Petrofac is leading international provider of oilfield services and when Petrofac build joyful facilities, the process may involve an area the size of a city with thousands of people and hundreds of tons of material as part of the digital transformation programme, Petrofac set goals to increase safety and security, as well as productivity and quality. Petrofac partnered with Accenture Digital for their connected construction application and with activity to supply. Private Lorawan network. An Abbey way trackers for both tracking work. It's an assets onsite Laura. When was the best technology for Petrofac as they were able to cover this very large remote site in Oman with just five Lorawan gateways. I quickly want to touch base on this new Abbey Way advanced barely zoning feature which has opened up the possibility to a lot of new interesting use cases with this feature. Different zones can be created an geofence using BLE beacons and the Abbey very trackers can be programmed locally to take action based on detecting the different zones. For example, trackers can detect hazardous or restricted areas and raise the local arm on the device to notify the worker of danger and also send. Notification to supervisors to take action. Another use case this enables is for monitoring time spent by workers in different zones. So, so this BLE zoning feature, it is being widely actually used by touch is still at the industrial Sites and Tata wanted to reduce accidents and fatalities at the steel plant, which was primarily primarily due to workers getting injured in zones which they should have not been at. So at the steel sides they geofence dangerous and restricted zones. Using Billy and the Abbey Way Smart badges will detect and notify supervisors when a worker enters at the zone, so they so they can take immediate action. Also, the workers are alerted locally through the device idea that they may be in a in danger, and this is actually one of the largest connected worker produced globally with already over 100,000 workers connected and total project size is around 140,000 workers. So that's the end of my presentation, and here are my contact details for any inquiries. So thank you and I will now pass the presentation over to Tony from in an Echo. Thanks on that, that was really, really cool and I really liked seeing all of the components that you are bringing to bear their my specific topic today. I'm going to talk a little bit about smart cities and sustainable outcomes, and I know that's a bit of a cliche, but there's a real reason why I specifically want to chat about that particularly, so just a quick introduction. I'm as Derek mentioned, I'm turning to become the CEO of AT and Cohen and Co. Is a Laurel Lance. Primarily along the way and operator here in Australia we operate a true operator operator grade we RAR telecommunications operator. Under the ACT we provide true enterprise level services around security area and around the SLA and delivery of our services to our customers. We, our customer base is primarily around cities, utilities, solutions, providers, enterprise. Pretty much anyone across the board who's engaged in the. In the process of trying to really get deeper in the involved in the engagement in the particular technology that they're working on around sensing and understanding their environment, we operate a a data platform which is all around aggregating data and providing a better way to manage and include and be inclusive of external organizations through the sharing of data and the sharing of device access. And of course we are part of the Lorawan global Network. Ideal and work with all of the partners on this on this presentation today. And of course we are a proud contributor to the Laura Alliance so I know what I'm going to do now is I want to talk a little bit about it. It's a little more high level than some of the other presentations at the start, but I'm going to go a little deeper later. The thing that's important. It doesn't matter whether this is about cities or whether it's about any other particular use cases that you might be talking about to get something which we can actually use this technology for. Not just now, but moving forward into the future, we need to make this technology sustainable for what we're trying to do, and that that requires us to do things like build a network which we can actually rely upon, which is going to be sustainable from a technology point of view, but also sustainable and makes sense from an economic and from a beneficial POV for our community. And that leads me into sustainable ROI. And when I talk about ROI, I don't mean just the economic benefits, but I mean this softer benefits. If we're talking about a city, for example, we're talking about not just an economic benefit, but we're also talking specifically about the areas of the software, advantages, things which make a difference to your community that constituents that they might be actually servicing. And then of course finally, whatever things which make a difference to your organization now the beauty of Lorawan and Eric is already touched on this. I think Maria has touched on this earlier in the day, and indeed, Iman, an insomniac, the beauty of Lorawan. Is that it captures the the entire ecosystem from both the chipset all the way down to the chipset level through devices through the network layer all the way through to the application layer. All all elements of those components are actually brought bring to the party, away to to be flexible and give you a sustainable outcome moving forward. It's a very important element to what I think Laura when does. To build a sustainable network, what I think you need to do, and this is the experience that we've had from our customers, whether it be a city customer or an enterprise customer is there's always a reason to choose the technology that they're working on. And So what I find happens is that I end up working with the customer and they say to me, but Lorawan can give me so many advantages. You know it's it's too broad. There's so much choice and they always say to them choose an anchor. Is something which makes sense to you from a technology point of view and something which your business is experiencing as a problem today. Work on that. These five examples here are just there. Only 5 examples of many, but they actually come to us from Newcastle City Council. One of our our customers. One of our main Contacts there James Visor and he and he told me that our group, he said. These examples of things that he believes every city needs. They need water management, whether that is around understanding storm water levels, whether it's understanding River levels, whether it's sewerage, if you haven't happened to be one of those organizations in Australia that actually manage is water, understanding that and augmenting Bureau data with real time data to actually give you an outcome and actually make a decision about when maybe you're going to have an overflowing stormwater application is a really important application for these guys. Instructions say so. Another one, for example, and this has been proven globally. I've got a little picture there of the sensor, sensor, sensor, terror, soil moisture probe. In in the Netherlands, where there's a very extensive Lorawan coverage, there's a few examples in a number of the cities in Amsterdam in another number of other locations where the soil moisture is soil. Moisture probes are being used to trigger the application use case around. Actual watering in a particular location. Now now what that's done is this literally saved millions of liters of waters in a year, and it's contributed to the reduction. Of of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by means of people not driving around the place. Actually turning on taps. And it's also of course increased efficiency. So Mac talk about the, you know, smart workers and so forth. Well, geofencing applications and activity, whether it's staff or whether it's asset, there's a similar kind of activity required. An interesting one that the James talked about was his important assets that need to be kept and stored in environments which may or may not be actually suited to their particular around. Asset like books, precious books stored in an environment which would make sense to them. In other words, the moisture level is at the right level that it can maintain and look after the books in that particular location. What price do you put on a precious artifact? In other words, environmental monitoring, such as waste management facilities. This is a really important element. Every city across across Australia, and indeed probably the world has a waste management facility and they need to manage things like. Indexes carbon dioxide carbon monoxide particulars dumps in other words, and so forth. And these things can be monitored at a cost effective method by building very efficient technologies around networking to bring back your sensing data into a single location which previously was just inefficient to do and you really couldn't get away with it. So now I'm gonna I'm gonna trigger onto now a couple of use cases just to highlight the idea of sustainable ROI. Now in the previous slide I talked about sustainable networks and really choosing an anchor use case to make something work for you. In this slide it's more about taking the next stage, which is sort of saying now that I've got something which makes sense, and I know where I'm going with my network. Now I need to actually add some additional value, and in this particular case one of the assets that I'd like to talk about. One of the obvious cases I'd like to talk about is a product called TPL TPL. It's a French based company and they've been running. I am a paging solution for many many many years in the traditional paging environment called PAC Sack. This, to my knowledge is the first Lorawan enabled paging device that's being used for globally Now TV. Else interesting because this was their technology in Pocsag, which is the protocol used around typical paging and they've been doing this for 30 odd years and they see the need to move and change in the in the environment they've moved, they've chosen. Lorawan as their primary networking technology to move forward into a next generation and I think that's really important because the primary advantages that Lorawan gives over the previous technology is 2 way communication and this is critical for really efficient use of of asset tracking. Sorry, out of paging and using these in a manner that gives you the benefits you need around making sure your people. Are in the right place at the right time and that when something happens they can respond to Internet in an efficient manner, just as another example around this. If we think about where digital matters, fix in where we spoke about a little bit earlier or where the solution from Abby Way fits in, we've got a similar. We've got a similar solutions, so that was talking about and what this means is that we can take the paging area. We can take the asset tracking and we can take efficient working. And we can add them all across this whole actual, and I think it's really important to acknowledge that as we move through Laura when we understand that the multiple use cases means that there's a need to bring this all together in one place. One of the soft benefit. I just want to touch on very quickly is Livingston Shire Council who's a small counseling Queensland. There are very very good and valued customer of Auvinen Inco and one of the small things that they've done is they've implemented a small. Street lighting smart street lighting application using the Internet code, Lorawan network and what they've done is very deliberately and specifically apart from other benefits. They have provided an additional value add to ensure that the turtles, the hatchlings, the turtle hatchlings from in their particular area of the world part of the world don't get disoriented and walk towards the busy highway and instead they follow the moon to the ocean. It's just a really good example of how Lorawan. With sufficient technology, battery use and a very very efficient good coverage provides the benefit of being able to make a real difference in in in an environmental science sense. I think it's an important use case to go a little bit further and just just reiterate some of the use cases that Livingstone Shire Council happens to be doing their flood monitoring very similar to what to what Newcastle City Council are actually are actually doing their monitoring rainfall. And there were mentioning the data from the Bureau of Meteorology and ensuring that that is aligned with the the work that they're doing, their monitoring their waste, their monitoring their soil moisture. I think I mentioned that before they're monitoring their assets to make sure that the Community centers have been locked up appropriately. And of course they're doing environmental monitoring. Another quick example here is something which we've talked about in the use case a couple of times previously, but it's an important one because it shows the flexibility and variability of something like Lorawan the in this case our one of our customers, the City of Gold Coast. Has built a very extensive Laura when networking in partnership with within an encode. They're all technology into G modems is being phased out as in most 2G modems around the world are being or two G networks are being phased out across the world, hence the need for paging device as well. We in partnership with them of created our own little device called the Enson multiple unit. Multiple use cases, but in this instance it operates as a. As a street sign modem and it's a Lorawan protocol modem, which brings an opportunity to actually do exactly what they were doing before. But it provides them the ability to leverage their existing network which they built under a different core anchor use case. As I would say, and they're adding additional value over and above, and that's one of the beauties of Laurel and the multiple use cases and the multiple access to devices and sensing opportunities allows you to continue to add value. Into your network over and above that into the future. I think it's an important element of what we're talking about, and the last thing I want to chat about here is really where in an encode refines our place, and that is, we believe that all of this data is fantastic data and in each individual use case it's has its value. We understand that and we we recognize that. One of the things, however, is that not just cities, but enterprises and customers have a plethora of data they have so much data available to them every day. But how do you use it? So we did build a data aggregation platform called into MDL and I like to refer. This is content and context or context and content and basically what that means is instead of just having a piece of raw data which has no meaning. Now we add context of that data. We aggregate that data and we bring it into a single platform. And that's designed to specifically bring real and real data and platforms, or meant that data and combine it into a place where you can tend can contextualize and manage, and to really scale your Lorawan network. You really need to be able to manage that that data exposure. You need to be able to understand where the data came from, why it came from that location, and indeed whether it's a remote surface such as the lunar service that we heard about earlier on where there's no access to data in that location other than using something like a Lorawan satellite service because there's no other way to get that data into the network, but you still need to know where it is and why you collected that data in that particular location. That in combination with other pieces of technology and other Lorawan services and then having the ability to securely share that and provide access to it fully at the control of the customer, I think is a really valuable thing. Now why do you need it? You need it because Lorawan provides you with an incredible breadth and depth of flexibility through their ecosystem and the broad base of opportunity to sense data across multiple use cases. With that, I'm going to say. Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak with you today and I'm going to hand back to Derek. Alright, thank you very much Tony for your great presentation and thank you to all of our speakers for today's show. Also want to give a special thanks to our sponsors machine QA Comcast company who is our gold sponsor and then our two silver sponsor Birds, an Charter Communications we could not deliver today's webcast and the entire 2021 series without your help. Now, if you're interested in becoming a member of our Alliance, definitely take a look at our membership benefits and the resource list. This is an incredible ecosystem of members, really. They are the best of the best, and Lowerline and IoT throughout the world can learn more about writing to the admin. As you see there. And also you're welcome to contact me directly. Also find out about more upcoming destination Laura Web casts on our destination lower web Engagement Hub Engagement hub, excuse me. Also, today's webcast, as I said before, will be available for on demand viewing within 24 to maybe 48 hours. Take a look for that shirt with your colleagues with your partners so they too can learn about some days excellent information until there are more about the lower alliance and lower Wan. Check out our website. Now let's go onto our Q&A session that I promise you that. We have again as a reminder, you have a Q&A box. Go ahead and submit your questions in that box and we'll do our best to answer every question that you submit today during our live Q&A session. But if we can't get through all of them today, then we'll make sure to answer them in a follow up. No, that's not allowed Kewene. Hello everyone, this is Derek and now we are to our live question and answer session. We did get a few questions so we're just going to jump into it if we do not get to all of your questions today will we will be following up with answers to the questions to all of you. But we'll start with the first question that we see which shows us from Elon Musk and Tony. I'm going to give this one to you to answer back and read it out so everybody can hear it. Question is how well does Lorawan? Operate in areas where you have undulating landscapes, Hills and dips. Causing low signal spots, for example using it to run digital Twins on mobile equipment. Anna lithium mined in Nevada. We've been using cellular 5G for A cause, but there's the issue of frequent dropouts. Will Lorawan have any edge on cellular over to you, Tony? Look thanks, thanks very much Derek. I'm hoping he can all hear me, so this is a really important question actually and it actually speaks beautifully to the benefits of of Laurel and as a technology. So I think I think the way to frame this is in a couple of ways. The first thing to remember is that Laura, where is a constrained bandwidth technology and it's not designed specifically to be a real time type technology, so we see it as a as a serious complement to other types of communications technologies. But not necessarily a complete replacement. It is in many, many cases are complete and total replacement technology, but in some cases where you want real time control of a particular location or device, you must take that into consideration when dining that when designing your network. Now, tarantulas very your question. Very specifically, Lorawan has some of the best receive sensitivities for any technology of this type are globally. This means that you have the the specific benefit of being able to get very extensive distances with with, with with quite successful results. We are hitting quite long distances in industry. There we obviously have big distances here and the Internet car network where we have built. We are in many regional and remote areas and so Hills are always a challenge of course, and depending on the device location and the height of your gateway above, ground will determine that the success of the connectivity over a distance, and that's best. That's best design using some proper RF planning software and you know a decent Lorawan operator or engineer will be able to do that kind of work. For you, so I would encourage you to reach out and have that conversation. Another really important point, and then I'll quickly move on so the other questions for the others is that in fact we're already talking to people about using Lorawan as a compliment to digital digital twin type technologies where you are getting information from this from one type of sensor and you wanna augment or or contextualize that data. As I was mentioning in my presentation with other sensor data which is well suited around the Laurel and top technologies. So again, I think it's a good complement to the types of tech that we would use to bring a better augmented result. And finally and importantly them remember Maria in our in her presentation talked about using Lorawan from the purposes of a satellite communication, so don't forget that we can reach these locations using satellite. Very important, as Maria quite quite aptly said, there's no real free space unless it's space, so so really she she's looking for you to to reach out to her and say, how can we actually? Augment your network in that way, and finally the other thing I'd like to say, just very briefly, is that remember the infrastructure to build a Lorawan network in a location which is much closer to your required coverage area. The investment that you will make to actually succeed in that is is very very very, very low and possible. Using rural land as opposed to some of the other more stricter topologies such as 5G technology. It's much more difficult to get that extension of network. Thanks Derek. Great, thanks Tony. You hit all the main spots. Obviously if you're interested in learning more, there's ways that you can interact with us after the show. Going to go on to the next question from Bob Sharon and sound back. I'm gonna give this one to you. So the question is for everyone, how can one diploid LG firmware updates over the air without clogging the local lower when deployment to various devices? Thanks Derek, I hope you can hear me clearly. So yeah, but the lower alliance is actually done. A lot of work with standardizing firmware updates overload web. An as you may also know, line is the only LP Wan technology which currently supports downlink multicast feature, which means lower Lincoln sends firmware updates over multicast downlink to large set of Class B or C devices, and this enables to minimize the downlink radio congestion and as well as optimize darling. So to send the firm's to group of devices or all in one go. So basically send one downlink. And had multiple devices, large group of devices together. And these large families, what typically happens in the lower bound firmware update, is that they are fragmented and transmitted over multiple messages and again over multicast. And then they are reassembled at the device. Also, the permit Frank Fragmente can be compressed to further optimize the download. I, as part of the theme park product portfolio activity, has actually built a photo platform which automates all of this for running firmware update campaign. The platform includes the automating and scheduling of campaigns for group of devices to be switched to Class B or C at the form provision, multicast groups for the firmware and campaign. This platform also allows for framework content management for device profile, including version management. And actually performing the firmware fragmentation fragmenting process, the platform also monitors the per device firmware update progress and gives you complete view of the campaign process. So basically we have automated the whole law and firmware upgrade process that can be applied at that scale, so feel free to reach out and we can provide you access to our photo server for testing and and so on. Thanks. Thank you very much and we are going to come back to one. Some of the other earlier questions, but I want to make sure all our speakers get a chance to answer questions. So we're going to skip two question #9 from Anthony Congas and for anyone. If I pronounce your name incorrectly, I do apologise. So even I'm going to give this question to you and I'm going to read it aloud. So for the second speaker, which is you to Perth based company digital matter, could the two AAA cells be replaced with either 1/3 Volt button cell battery and 1/3 Volt supercapacitor? Or a battery less energy harvesting solution using? TV anwan supercapacitor? Patrick and thank you Anthony for the question. I believe that's going to be more of a custom engagement with us rather than something like an answer over here, but for the most part of what we do is that we we try to look at disposable batteries, rechargeable because the expense of the expensive rechargeable at times and the other issue is that we do a lot of deployments in sort of mind sites where there's extreme heat involved and we see that disposal matches the industrial type works really well. The PV sort of stuff we do see that in the I guess the agriculture space where security is not an issue, but for us it didn't matter. Most of our clients are trying to hide these devices as as discreet as possible and so having a PV panel and putting the device on top of assets which would defeat the security sort of purpose. So yeah, that's going to be a custom engagement. You would have to send us an email. You can do that later on. Yeah, thank you, Anthony. Thank you very much ma'am. So now let's go over to. The Outback in Anthony. You've got several questions is fantastic, so this question for you, Maria from Anthony, is what is the difference in peak power on satellite transmission versus Lorawan? Text him. Hi everyone, I hope you can hear me OK. So it's like the same success, so divisive. Something like that. Maria. Yes, it's a little. It's a little hard to hear. Uhm? OK, so I'll try to move around it, that's better. Thankfully. So I thought was saying. He's talking to start, so we get the same as ground floor 1 devices and we also do the same frequency. So that means. I think the same reason would you like me to pick Flowers? So I think it's ready. Yeah, it seems to be working to be any PST. So yes, I think the short answer is same. Fireworks, endo, fireworks. OK, that we do realize that was a little bit difficult to hear still, so we'll make sure to follow up with a written response to that question as well. Thank you very much Maria. So Tony, we're going to go back in the questions to Yannis Lu who asked a long question, so I'm going to read that out as well. So we are manufacturer and provider of smart gas meters and water meters. We are facing the problem of choosing the network in Australia. We would like to know. What is the advantage of Lorawan compared with Sigfox? An NB IoT. Please answer from the angle of specifically in Australia in operation cost data transmission cost, signal coverage etc. Hi Derek look thanks for that. You notice what a challenging question and what a big question. I'm not sure that I can do it full justice in in the couple of minutes that we have here, but I'm going to try and hit a few of the big points and hopefully we can have a more in depth conversation at a later time. So you know, in effect, for example without without speaking too much out of turn here. Just talking about the advantages of Warren versus Cellular or NB IoT or Sync box for example. In the case of Laurel and you really gotta think about a couple of elements here from a gas and water metering perspective. One of those things, and it's extremely important that it cannot be underestimated. And that is the importance in the use of batteries. There are. There's a large amount of information available out there in the in the wild with regards to battery usage and consumption, but battery technology and battery chemistry is not is not necessarily. Obvious, so it is important, I think that that you have a much more in depth conversation and understand the bad. Free chemistry before we start making decisions, a bigger battery is not necessarily the only answer to solving your problem. Lorawan because of the unique technology, provides the best. The best option around battery consumption that you're going to get, particularly when you consider that in the context of of the two way communications infrastructure that we have. Secondly, around Lorawan and coverage again, I mentioned it before with the question from. Our friend Dylan is that you know, really, we can build coverage and Laurel and has the advantage of being able to enhance coverage at very very low incremental costs. And so when you have good coverage for example, for example with NB IoT or adequate coverage in some areas from another technology to actually to actually satisfy this solution. Really to really get to the locations you need to get to, you need often to be able to augment your network. To be able to do that quickly and easily at a low cost with low power consumption with lots of different backhaul capabilities is really what you need, so I probably can't get into a lot of the commercials here, except to say that you know the device connectivity is is is extremely competitive. Probably the best in the market. I would suggest Gateway extension network extension is is really. It's an order of magnitude in many cases better than the other technologies and the flexibility. Of different backhaul solutions, different different types of communication solutions, whether it be satellite, whether it be a traditional or land connection. Are all very, very important components. When we think about this network, so I would probably encourage honest that we we tweak, take a conversation offline at some point and then really reach out that and really interrogate your your requirement and the issues that you're having and how we can perhaps help I. I mean the the alliance, how we can help you with those decisions. Yeah and thanks Tony and that's important so please also remember that you definitely can reach out to the speakers today, especially those who have already been invited to do so and then. Also remember we have an incredible ecosystem of members all around the world so they also can provide support and answer questions like you brought up today that there's not enough time to go into all the detail of the questions. But we have lots of information to answer your questions. I will just address real quickly. The question from Jorge, Orlando Garcia Lozano, so Tony with. And and Co and. Email from digital matter. They can you can get in touch with them. With regards to Colombia, but I will also look through our Members who have operations in Colombia and try to put them in touch with you. And then I think this will be looking at our last question. Yes, I think so so. Another one from Anthony Anne will give this one to email to start the answer to this one. So here's the question. When should you incorporate into your hardware design rechargeable batteries versus primary batteries? Thank you Derek. Great question Anthony. So when you use the cell batteries, at least it didn't matter. We use the charge batteries for vehicle tracking, so if you have a vehicle that's running around, you want to have continues GPS tracking and so you would have wake up power coming in from the vehicle itself. But oftentimes vehicles can be moved or batteries would be disconnected for any reason. And so having a having a really good retail battery makes a lot of sense. Like I mentioned earlier. We don't do much for detailed batteries when it comes to asset trackers because a lot of these are going on to mine sites where this extreme heat and the only other time that I I see in the lower rent space or any sort of IT space where rechargeable batteries are typically used, is when you're trying to track people so people on mindset of worksite and you want continues tracking an alert as to where they are. That's when you would use details of batteries. I would think. Yeah, that's everything for me. Alright, thank you very much for that, so Please remember there's lots of information we have on the lower Alliance website, so definitely take a look at that will be sending communications out after this webcast an obviously you can reach out to any of us from today, but with that that is the last question that will be answering. Thank you all very much for your time today. Thank you speakers for answering the questions and I wish all of you a very good afternoon or evening wherever you are in the world. Then goodbye. _1619178430977
