Smart Sensor Solutions for Smart Agriculture
Wi-SUN FAN technology is ideally suited to outdoor IoT networks as it offers a good range and an ability to support dense networks typically found in urban areas. However, the range and reliability of Wi-SUN FAN network technology means it is also well suited to applications such as smart agriculture.
The use of IoT in agriculture (smart agriculture or smart farming) has become increasingly important in recent years for several reasons. On one hand, there is a growing need to increase productivity due to limited resources, but this has to be balanced against the environmental risks and damage caused by intensive farming in rural areas. The use of technology helps in both these requirements.
