On-Farm Connectivity Technology
About the Technology
The technology eliminates communication and connectivity ‘dead spots’ in remote locations by extending the reach of existing networks. The technology consists of both fixed and mobile devices that enable farmers to communicate from remote points on their property.
The Technology Provider
Zetifi was founded in 2017 to address connectivity challenges faced by farmers and residents in rural and remote Australia.
Following a successful series of pilot studies and on-farm trials throughout NSW, the company now boasts a 20-strong workforce of network engineers, software developers and production staff based in its own manufacturing facility at Wagga Wagga, Australia. Zetifi also has satellite offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Rochester, New York.
This case study provides an overview of findings from the technology trials including:
- What the technology delivers
- What is required from the farmer
- How the technnology works
- Current and potential applications of the technology
- Cost/benefit analysis
- Grower feedback
- Additional considerations that should be taken into account when deciding whether to utilise the technology
