ClearBlade and Trilogy Networks Formally Announce Smart Agriculture Monitoring Bundle for Rapid Deployment
Rural Cloud Initiative Delivers on Precision Agriculture Promises
ClearBlade, the industry-leading IoT Edge application software company, and Trilogy Networks a groundbreaking rural Edge networking company today are excited to announce the delivery of Phase 1 of the Farm of the Future deployment with the Rural Cloud Initiative. Together the companies have partnered to provide an out of the box Smart Agriculture Monitoring solution that is rapidly deployable into farms for immediate remote visibility.
On October 1, 2020, under Trilogy's leadership, seven partner companies officially delivered phase 1 the farm of the future including a fully deployed private LTE network, edge as a service, and real-time IoT asset monitoring. This success represents great news for rural industries needing to leverage powerful advanced technologies to optimize their business. As part of this delivery, ClearBlade deployed its Smart Agriculture Solution across the farm for rich telemetrics.
This project has been praised for its rapid deployment and a clear focus on bringing innovative technology to rural parts of the country. "This project demonstrates the ability of RCI members to collaborate for a successful outcome, a core mission of the Rural Cloud Initiative," said Brian Spurgeon, General Manager at Chat Mobility and newly elected Chairman of the RCI Advisory Council For Rural Edge Solutions (ACRES).
This powerful solution is available as a rapidly deployed and easily customized ClearBlade bundle offering that includes sensors, edge gateway, and packaged software. Farms are able to immediately see the conditions impacting their farm and are able to buy these capabilities in an affordable low cost monthly subscription. The data is displayed via a clear web-based display and customizable via a simple no-code interface designed for the operational farmer.
While it is still early in the deployment the expectation on the results is high. With remote visibility of conditions and automated control of equipment, this automation and visibility across the state of the farm are expected to produce a 10% improvement in yields.
