Core sell hardware for, and give workshops on,
Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN). This is the technology the City of Newcastle is rolling out to help motorists find parking spaces, integrating transport, manage parks, and detect full bins. With a low cost network many other applications are possible, such as local sense of environmental conditions and pollution.
While much is made of ultra high speed 5G wireless, that will require billions of dollars to install hundreds of thousands of base stations, and most Internet of Things (IoT) applications don't need high speed data. The LoRaWAN adopts a low speed, low cost DiY approach.
