Briefly: Gen-i M2M; Voda expands 4G; EMC SSD
Posted on 15-Nov-2013 06:59 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.



Machine-to-machine communication is running red hot and New Zealand full of things that need connecting to the internet. Which explains why Telecom NZ’s Gen-i division has picked up M2M cloud technology from Jasper Wireless.


Gen-i mobility head Dave Shennan says the technology will help clients use big data by “enabling them to simultaneously monitor and manage multiple devices in any location to provide real-time information that they can use to create a competitive edge”.

He says the technology supports flexible business models and operational process automation. It handles custom device provisioning, instant activation, real-time diagnostics along with detailed billing and usage reports.

  • Office ergonomics software from Christchurch-based Wellnomics is now on over 25,000 desktops in the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).  The company’s software is already in other Australian federal government departments including: the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Australian Federal Police, CSIRO and the federal government’s workplace health and safety agency Comcare.
  • New Zealand’s TPP negotiators get a pat on the back from InternetNZ for taking a tough stance defending the country’s copyright provisions. News of their position came to light after secret documents were published in the New Zealand Herald after being made public by Wikileaks.
  • Just in time for Christmas Vodafone has switched on its 4G service at Matakana and Warkworth. The company says parts of the Coromandel, Tauranga and Gisborne will also get the fast mobile data network before Christmas along with Omaha and Leigh.
  • EMC’s XtremIO is the worst product name we’ve seen in a long time. The product sounds good though, it’s  flash array for data centres. Solid state data centres are all the rage as users move from traditional disk-based systems. They’re not cheap, but they deliver massive performance improvements. EMC joins IBM and a raft of relatively young companies chasing the market, the company says its kit uses a different architecture and that means greater efficiency and durability.
