The Neul network is designed specifically for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications. Credible industry predictions suggest that there could be up to 50 billion M2M connections by 2020. Using the new open standard for M2M communications we will enable the emergence of 'the Internet of Everything'.
Here are just a few examples of the services and applications our global network will enable:
Electronic media and content delivery
Content from existing media and broadcast companies, internet media companies and social networks will increasingly be delivered directly to customers' tablets, eReaders, internet radio players and cars, without the need for the consumer to enter into a separate contract with a wireless operator.
Automatic communication between machines is set to expand rapidly as access costs reduce and the reliability and security of services increase. In the next ten years we envisage more than 50 billion M2M connections will be made which were previously uneconomic because of the dependence upon regular human intervention for operations, maintenance and control.
Continuous monitoring of, and firmware upgrades for cars
Car manufacturers' dealer networks will be able to diagnose and provide software fixes to problems in cars without the need for any recalls.
Traffic management and road pricing
Real time monitoring of vehicle location and traffic conditions will radically reduce transportation costs and environmental damage.
Networking for the smart grid
Direct connection to the grid, from the consumers' meters at one end to remote wind turbines at the other, will be possible without the expensive overhead of short range wireless concentrators and relays.
Asset tracking of goods on the move
Companies or authorities that need to know the location of diverse goods will be able to continuously track and monitor even the smallest assets wherever they are in transit, world-wide.
Remote health monitoring and diagnosis
Hospitals and healthcare professionals will be able to continuously monitor the condition of patients at home and be ready to change medications or provide immediate medical intervention.
Broadband 'notspots' - regions where it is uneconomic to connect through wired broadband -will be connected instead through our network.
Networking of electronic shelf labelling and point of sale terminals for retailers
It will become possible to network shelf labels both to the point of sale and to the retailer's central operations and marketing centre.
Home and industrial building automation, security and control
Remote, real –time monitoring and control of many more assets in the home and business will become possible.
Defence & security
Our network offers the ability to tag and track more assets quickly and cheaply whilst running on primary cells. We also offer connectivity to more surveillance mechanisms.
Environmental monitoring and control
Air quality will be able to be monitored in more places more often. More sensors will be able to be used to help predict and manage the impact of natural disasters.
