Introducing Telstra Labs

Telstra Labs is located in Melbourne and is a space where innovation can thrive.

It’s a safe environment where we learn by doing, and can test, trial, experiment and explore. It’s where we dive into emerging technologies like mixed reality and the Internet of Things. And it’s a space for collaboration between our teams, our partners, our customers, and Australia’s next generation of innovative thinkers.

IoT Lab

Telstra Labs is home to Australia’s first publicly-accessible Internet of Things (IoT) Lab, designed to build a community around IoT product design.
It’s an open environment which is recognised by GSMA; a trade body focussed on mobile operators worldwide.
The IoT Lab is a safe space. Product developers can test and prototype IoT solutions in controlled radio conditions. This means we can simulate devices moving in and out of coverage, transferring between cell connections, and transmitting in noisy environments. The result? You get to see how your device will perform in a variety of real-world situations without leaving the Lab.

It is the first lab of its kind in Australia and includes an open invitation for anyone from anywhere to build and test their ideas in the Open IoT Lab.
