SA firm Myriota wins award at IoT summit in California

By

South Australian company Myriota has been recognised at the Internet of Things World 2017 conference in Silicon Valley, receiving an award for being the Best Industrial IoT Start-Up Company.

The awards were decided out after more than 100 start-ups made their pitches to a panel of Silicon Valley and international IoT experts at the conference.

The conference was held in Santa Clara, California, from 16 to 18 May. There were more than 11,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors, and more than 100 start-ups, making it one of the larger events of its kind globally.

Based in Adelaide, the company has developed a low-power, low-cost, satellite IoT communications platform. This makes transmission of small data from remote locations economically viable for a new class of sensors and machines.

To do this, tiny low-powered transmitters that communicate directly with a constellation of low earth orbit satellites are used.

Messages are decoded by patented receiver software and this provides scalable ultra low-cost connectivity for industries like agriculture, mining, maritime, utilities monitoring, transport, logistics and asset tracking.

Myriota chief executive Dr Alex Grant said: “We are honoured to be formally recognised by industry leaders at the largest IoT summit in the world.

"There is huge verified global demand for cost-effective remote connectivity and we are pleased the judges saw the value of Myriota’s technology."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
