From launching 5G to creating new Internet of Things (IoT) experiences for our millions of customers, we continue to be at the forefront of technological advancements that are changing our industry.
This means 2019 is going to be another big year for all of our technology teams as they’ll be at the centre of this exciting journey.
So what are the biggest projects our teams will be working on this year? Here are the top four:
2019 is the year of 5G
5G will take us from a world of connecting people to each other and the internet to a world of ultra-fast mobile speeds and IoT on a mass scale.
Our people have already made some pretty huge advancements in this space, including turning on 5G in all major Australian cities, and opening our 5G Innovation Centre on the Gold Coast.
But this is only just the beginning of what we are hoping to achieve together. See how our teams are helping to turn 5G into a reality.
Creating new IoT experiences
Our talented tech teams are creating the future of IoT and this means in 2019 we’re going to continue to deliver new experiences to Australian families and businesses, so they can be better connected, protected and empowered.
Since launching our IoT network, our people have created the Telstra Locator and helped to transform the agriculture industry.
With over 50 million connected devices expected on our network over the next five years, this is just the start of new innovations that our people will deliver.
See how our people are bringing new IoT experiences to life and the skills we’re looking to hire in.
Using AI and Machine Learning
Customers are at the heart of everything we do, so we believe it’s important they can speak with us in a way that’s easiest and convenient for them.
That is why our teams will continue to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in innovative new ways, to help create amazing digital experiences. Get a look into the work our people are doing.
Cyber security remains top of mind
With one of the largest cyber security teams in Australia, our hundreds of information security specialists will continue to play a big role in helping to keep Australia secure in 2019.
As an organisation, we’re committed to addressing cyber security threats, and continue to invest heavily to make sure our customers are supported.
We’ll continue to do this in a number of new ways including how we keep our code secure and help our people to keep up to date with latest cyber security trends.
