"Previously, satellite connectivity has not been available or affordable for businesses with remote assets, but nanosatellites are providing a more attainable and affordable solution," Myriota CEO and co-founder Dr Alex Grant said.
"By combining Optus' national networks with our nanosatellite capability, we are able to offer a truly holistic Io T solution and help solve connectivity issues being faced in regional Australia." Last year, Myriota teamed up with the Australian Institute of Marine Science to trial ocean drifters that report back to base using satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO).

Here’s a look back at some of our most memorable moments.
The deal came as Optus neared capacity in its existing Sydney and Melbourne facilities, which were built specifically for Optus and Alphawest.
Optus Business vice president Ian Smith said the Next DC deal gave the business an expanded footprint across Australia, but did not mean that Optus would stop building its own facilities. He said it could be cheaper to use an in-house data centre if there was sufficient demand.Myriota currently offers plans of AU0 a month for 1MB of data or 50,000 messages, 10,000 message or 200k B of data for AU5 each month, 1,000 message or 20k B of data for AU a month, or 10,000 messages to be used over a 12 month window for AU0.Optus Business will also offer the plans to its customers.“Customers in this converged world don’t just talk about a network or a mobile phone plan or a bit of bandwidth,” he said.“They want our organisation to increasingly talk to them about how to solve business problems and business challenges; how do you put in devices, applications, software; how do you open up a service.” The restructure also supports Optus’ increasingly regional approach to service delivery, under which its 3000 Australian business and government customers have access to some 13,000 ICT professionals around the world.","wrapper Cta":"","script For Title":"","script For Subtitle":"","script For Description":"","script For Curator Text":"","script For Image":"send Lux Message('init Component', ['#par_sd_component_banner__cmb-image-1235124915']);\t\tsend Lux Message('update Widget', ['#contentoptusenbusinessbusiness-centrenewcastlejcrcontentparsd_component_banner_-dcid', , false]);","script For Background":"send Lux Message('update Widget', ['#contentoptusenbusinessbusiness-centrenewcastlejcrcontentparsd_component_banner_-dcid', , false]);","script For Cta":"","slide_under":true}"Optus Business Centre Newcastle provides solutions and services that cover your mobile, fixed line, broadband and data needs.We guide you through the whole process and help with any issues that may arise.We’ve been busy making sure the move to Optus is simple and seamless.Check your plan status in My Account to see your eligibility for a special offer.Internet of Things (Io T) technology startup Myriota has signed an agreement with Optus Business to add mobile connectivity to its plans.The new connectivity will be offered at no extra cost to Myriota customers, with the pair to hit the market with four plans that offer direct satellite connectivity from Myriota with the potential addition of dual SIM 4G and 5G connectivity or dual SIM NBIo T connectivity.
