Our home for technology and innovation

Telstra Labs is a safe environment where we learn by doing, and can test, trial, experiment and explore.

Innovation is how we make things better. It’s how we push technology to be more human, turn big ideas into new realities, and glimpse into what the future could hold.

Who we are and what we do

Telstra Labs is a safe environment where we learn by doing, and can test, trial, experiment and explore. It’s home to our global startup accelerator. It’s a proven innovation capability. It’s where we dive into emerging technologies like mixed reality and the Internet of Things.

Our Internet of Things 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.
