Benefits of 5G for Agriculture
Improved Connectivity – Now more than ever there is a need to communicate, share information, and be connected to the internet. 5G is more dependable, faster, and lower in latency reducing the risks of connectivity issues, thus, facilitating smart farming as well as the day-to-day business needs of farms and agriculture-based businesses.
Speed – More speed means more opportunities to streamline farming processes and to work more efficiently. To keep pace with the increasing demands for crop yield, farmers will have to employ new technologies to grow more, using fewer workers. The automation afforded by 5G technologies enables precision, intelligence, and monitoring to meet these needs at a lower cost.
Powering Smart Farming and Precision Agriculture – The incorporation of 5G technologies including mobile devices facilitates the collection and aggregation of data to drive strategic decisions, enables tracking and monitoring of crops, livestock, feed, water, and soil, and provides predictive data to help farmers manage their operations with greater accuracy and less waste.

Cost Efficient – Monthly data plans for feature phones are much more affordable and devices can be activated as Wi-Fi hotspots for up to 10 connections.
Customizable – Device Control is an ideal mobile solution for businesses with small device pools where cloud-based device management is not required. The application provides control of device features without any monthly recurring charges, improving your business’s bottom line.
