IoT Capabilities

Innovate with confidence on the Telstra IoT Network

Securely connect more things in more places on the Telstra IoT Network - Australia’s largest and underpinned by future-proof, ready-built network technologies for a wide breadth of use cases.

Our range of mobile network technologies address some of your biggest concerns when it comes to deploying IoT solutions, including security, reliability and coverage.

And our Cellular Low Power Wide Area Networks (Cellular LPWANs) deliver additional benefits for scaled deployments around cost, battery life and coverage in challenging locations.

Inbound and outbound roaming agreements offer Global IoT Connectivity via our global partnerships in selected countries. Together with our multiple platform options, this means we can offer global enterprises the ability to scale their solutions into Australia with the benefits of a local SIM profile.

Key features of mobile network technologies

Largest IoT Network

Around 3 million sq km LTE-M coverage and around 4 million sq km NB-IoT coverage.

Reliable mobile network

Our mobile network, built to connect millions of devices, is reliable compared with proprietary technologies due to 3GPP standards and licensed spectrum that is capacity managed.

Roadmap for the future

Our mobile network is built using global 3GPP standards, creating a roadmap for the future, backed by many of the world’s leading operators and manufacturers.

Carrier grade security

Telstra’s IoT network is built upon a security framework comparable with existing 4G carrier grade standards.

Ready to go today

Our coverage is ready to go today to enable rapid solution deployment without the need for you to invest in additional infrastructure

Range of technologies

A range of network technologies to connect a range of use cases. You can scale up for more bandwidth and mobility, or scale down to optimise battery life and costs.

Benefits of Cellular LPWANs

Making IoT at scale accessible

LTE-M and NB-IoT have many of the features of mobile technologies, but with new advantages that are specific to scaled IoT deployments.

Reduced cost

Cost efficient devices and lower ongoing costs.

Massive scale

A network built to support millions of devices.

Better coverage

Extended coverage and depth (in-building and sub-surface areas) to reach challenging locations in selected areas.

Extended battery life

Low power operation for compatible IoT devices means battery life is measured in years rather than hours and days.

Feature assured

Coexists with 5G, a long-term priority for Telstra.
