  1. 1. MOBILETECH 2017
  2. 2. From an IT perspective What will farming look like in 10+ years?
  3. 3. MANY IT TECHNOLOGIES GROWING EXPONENTIALLY • Cloud, mobile, social- well established already • Artificial Intelligence • Augmented Reality • Robots, drones • Blockchains • Voice interface REAL-TIME DATA ACTUATORS Internet of Thing
  4. 4. INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) • Real-time data from the physical world- leading to intelligence and control • Connectivity is an enabler- value comes from data and what you do with data
  5. 5. AN EARLY EXAMPLE: MILK VAT
  6. 6. AN EARLY EXAMPLE: FEED SILO
  7. 7. IOT CONNECTIVITY CHOICES
  8. 8. LORAWAN: CHEAP, UBIQUITOUS CONNECTIVITY FOR SENSORS • Low bandwidth (dial-up speed)- no pictures or video or voice • Maximum data payload practically 100 bytes (otherwise split into multiple) • Long battery life, typically 5+ years, over long distance • Maximum 1 data transmission every 30 seconds per end point • Bi-directional communication • Thousands of end points per gateway
  9. 9. GATEWAYS
  10. 10. NATIONAL ROLLOUT • 10 cities, 2 regions • Half the population already covered • Building out the regions to get to true 100% national coverage
  11. 11. CONVENTIONAL THINKING: CELLULAR-LIKE
  12. 12. WHAT IF WE ADOPTED A WIFI MODEL? Wifi + LoRaWAN Large bandwidth Short distance Small bandwidth Long distance
  13. 13. 3 KEY POINTS • Internet of Things promises real-time data and actuators as a foundation • Cheap, ubiquitous national coverage must be a goal • Great opportunity for service providers to the primary sector
