Increase productivity and control with smart farming technology
Agriculture has changed extensively over the last 20 years. Now – with the use of IoT technology enabling smart and precision farming – agricultural productivity improvements can be made in a cost-effective way.
Asset tracking, environmental sensors and smart agriculture technology, enable farmers to reduce waste, enhance productivity and utilise resources including water, electricity and fuel.

Working with farmers and agriculturists to deliver smart farming practices through reliable IoT technology.
Many farms are located out of reach of consistent, reliable cellular connections. A blend of radio and satellite-based IoT bridges the gap to record, transmit, and interpret data signals.
IoT smart farming solutions are built to monitor crop fields with the help of sensors to monitor and manage light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture and crop health.
With automated and on-demand location updates via inbuilt collar tag devices, farmers can see a precise view of where cattle and livestock are in the field, at any time of day or night.
Satellite solutions for farming
RockBLOCK enables farmers and growers to track and monitor livestock send from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of Wi-Fi and GSM networks.RockBLOCK 9602
Highly adaptable, the RockREMOTE guarantees robust communication and provides the vital link to ensure that critical data and analytics keep flowing when the grid stops and cellular connectivity is out of reach.RockREMOTE
Farmers should stay connected with the farmhouse for their safety. Satellite phones enable the team to remain in contact, at all times. Personal tracking device - the RockSTAR - sends location updates, up to every 15 seconds.RockSTAR Professional
Smart farming for farmers and agriculturists
Going Global with M2M: Animal Tracking
M2M – or machine-to-machine – solutions are deployed to solve a wide range of challenges, from farmers who want to track and monitor their livestock to scientists studying animals in the wild. In each case, a unique solution is required.
Transmitting Sensor Data Back from Extremely Remote Locations with Gill Instruments
Ground Control offers users the ability to connect to all Gill meteorological sensors, taking key data on a regular basis and transmitting it over satellites at an affordable price.
BGAN M2M – a Reliable, Global Satellite Data Service for Asset-Monitoring and Control
Monitoring and control systems in remote, unmanned locations require a reliable and cost-effective communications service to collect and transmit data to operations centres for further processing.
IoT and M2M: What is the difference?
Two of the technologies that you’ll often hear about in the context of device networking are M2M (machine-to-machine) and IoT (Internet of Things). But what are they and how do they differ? IoT and M2M have a number of distinct differences that we’ve highlighted in this blog post, depending on connection type, application and scalability.
SCADASat and Garth Wind Shetland Islands Scotland
The SCADASat solution provides the connectivity between the wind farm and the termination point, reporting the data in real-time to effectively control the power generation. This is a crucial function to prevent power saturation at the point of termination and ensure most economic use of the power generated.
