Make-Create are leading the charge to develop the first genuine network for the Internet of Things (IoT) in Melbourne, Australia. We’re on a mission to build a city-wide, open, free and community-owned data network for Melbourne, the world’s most liveable city (as ranked by EUI).
Inspired by the people of Amsterdam, who founded The Things Network and built an Internet of Things data network for their city in 6 weeks, we’re bringing Melbournians together to prove a smart city platform can be built, owned and operated by our community.
Based on LoRaWANTM wireless technology, The Things Network allows for things to talk to the internet without 3G or WiFi. So no WiFi codes, and no mobile subscriptions. Featuring low battery usage, long range and low bandwidth, LoRaWANTM is perfect for the Internet of Things.
We welcome community groups, local councils, private companies and individuals to join us in building the real Internet of Things.
