Purpose Built Network  | Smart Farm

Problem Statement/Challenge: Farmers are needing to connect their farm and data in a convenient place. As the need for data and data management and storage increases it becomes more important to find a solution that allows farmers to work with multiple companies and organizations. By 'Connecting the Farm' we are going to demonstrate the connection of multiple sensors into one platform for a easy to read location for farmers to find their in season cropping data. Currently, each ag company has their own interface and sensors for a farmer. This is causing challenges because farmers do not want to have a handful of apps and logins for each different sensor from each different company. Having one place to combine all that data and use on dashboard or interface for viewing would allow farmers to see their data in one place allowing for easier and faster decision making capabilities.

Solution/Value Proposition: ICT International provides low power wide area LoRaWAN network capability that connects devices through nodes to a gateway network, through The Things Network (enabling low power Devices to use long range Gateways to connect to an open-source, decentralized Network to exchange data with Applications) and into Eagle IO (a cloud based platform to remotely monitor environmental sensors) availible for visualization and analysis.

Project Type: Demonstration

Start Date: April 2019
