Band 28 – Get the Facts
Global M2M offer products which support Band 28 (700MHz).
If your 4G LTE remote access solution
does not support Band 28, you may not
have the SPEED.
If your 4G LTE remote access solution does not support Band 28, you may not have the DISTANCE.
If your 4G LTE remote access solution does not support Band 28, you may not have the PENETRATION.
“This (Band 28) has been widely touted as the ‘Water front’ of all bands, as it is the lowest band available to the mobile industry in Australia…
It has 1.2x the range of the previous best band which was 850Mhz, and has great building penetration.”

“Better in the bush – 4GX uses superior 700MHz spectrum that can go further than previous 4G frequencies, creating extra 4G coverage in rural and regional areas.
More for metro – 4GX offers extra in-building coverage and faster 4G in-building speeds compared to our regular 4G.”
“The Cat M1 service operates on Telstra’s 4GX network which utilises Band 28 (700MHz)… LTE Cat M1 can be used for mobile IoT/M2M devices, managing hand‑over between cell towers in a similar fashion to LTE. When crossing between several network towers, Cat M1 can maintain the connection similar to a normal 4G or 3G device.”

“Cat M1 is an IoT-friendly version of LTE that can extend battery life while offering enough bandwidth for communication…
(It is) making Internet of Things business models more relevant and achievable by lowering costs of maintaining devices and ensuring reliable and efficient connectivity.”

“Better coverage, faster speeds expected across Australia…
The so-called beachfront spectrum is valuable for its ability to travel longer geographic distances than higher frequency spectrum – making it ideal for regional areas – and for its ability to travel through walls – providing better indoor coverage.”

“The need for the 700MHz spectrum can’t be underestimated…
Projections indicate that use of the 700 MHz band for mobile broadband will generate substantial economic benefits globally.”
