Telstra’s new Smart Modem now includes 4G voice failover

The Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 will introduce 4G voice failover, as well as a new look.

Like the first-gen product, the Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 allows Telstra customers to make voice calls over the 4G network in the event that their broadband service is disrupted, but power is still available in the home.

The Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 is also capable of constantly measuring the speed and network performance in the home. All data gathered around this performance feeds into Telstra’s next gen Operational Support system with agents able to view how a home network and broadband service is performing. 

This data means that Telstra’s field techs can arrive at a customer’s home and already know how a customer’s broadband and home network is performing, how many devices are connected, the service history of the home and how much data is being used.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
