Farm communications

AGTECH360 network is installed using LoRa functionality and is a pivotal point for the integration for reliable connectivity on your farm for the tracking of tags, water valves, weather stations, cameras, sensors and a multitude of farm assets. This information is all displayed on the AGTECH360 platform Dashboard.

The Network is made up of Gateways and Repeaters installed on farm to communicate all the data through, LoRA, 3G,4G,5G, satellite and WIFI networks.

Tracking your livestock is easy with a flexible low cost infrastructure, planned around the area you require to have coverage.

  • Mobile (3g,4g,5g Network integration);
  • WIFI & Mesh network;
  • Integration with AGVIEW360 Platform.

LoRa Gateway (4G or Ethernet)

A gateway is a network node used in telecommunications that connects two networks with different transmission protocols together. Gateways serve as an entry and exit point for a network as all data must pass through or communicate with the gateway prior to being routed.

Installing one of the AGTECH360 gateways ensures coverage on farm up to 20 klms, and to extend the network and communications on your farm, is as simple as installing additional repeaters. Talk with our specialist today to ascertain the right set up to suit your requirements.

LoRa Repeater

The AGTECH360 LoRa Repeater station is used expand the reach of the LoRa network, sending sensor farm sensor information back to the AGTECH360 LoRa Gateway. It is easy to self install and activate.
