They were launched at an event in Melbourne at which the IoT Alliance Australia and Communications Alliance launched their IoT Security Guideline.
The LoRaWAN gateway has been installed at KPMG’s new Collins Square office. KPMG says it will support up to 1,000 connected devices within a three to five kilometre radius. It said a similar gateway installed last year in Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct — where its Sydney office is located — recorded over 32,000 instances of data in the first two months of 2017.
Piers Hogarth-Scott, National IoT Practice Leader for KPMG, said the Sydney gateway had supported a wide variety of IoT use cases, from monitoring bin levels to making parking more efficient.
KPMG’s IoT security suite focuses on IoT for smart cities and is “designed to ensure that cities and their infrastructure are safe, secure and trusted, and in doing so help Australian cities unlock significant economic benefits from innovation in the Internet of Things,” KPMG said.
KPMG ‘s Cyber Practice partner, Gordon Archibald, said the successful adoption of IoT and the transformation of cities required a robust approach to cyber security, privacy and trust.
KPMG has more than 100 experts in Australia specialising in cyber.
