Skylo and Druid to Showcase How Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) Enable Livestock Monitoring and Agribusiness

The partnership aims to revolutionize farming practices by enabling real-time data collection on livestock health, location, and environmental conditions.

Skylo Technologies, a global software-defined non-terrestrial network (NTN) operator, is partnering with Druid Software, the leader in cellular core network technology to showcase the multiple use cases supported by the companies' solutions at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Las Vegas. This partnership brings cutting-edge connectivity solutions to various industries, including livestock tracking, smart farming, fleet management, search and rescue, oil and gas, and more.

Skylo's expertise in satellite-based IoT connectivity and Druid's Raemis ™ 5G SA core network platform enable satellite connections across all devices and deliver innovative agricultural technology solutions. Raemis ™ core platform, one of the first to support satellite NTN, brings seamless connectivity to and management of devices, sensors, machines and more for an improved customer experience.

"Together with Druid Software, we are offering farmers a way to connect the sensors on their animals and amongst their crops to centrally manage the insights using reliable and cost-effective satellite connectivity solutions," said Sriram Subramanian, Director of Product Management with Skylo.

This partnership creates a powerful synergy that promises to revolutionize the way farms and agribusinesses operate. Farmers are able to attach NTN-enabled sensors to their livestock to capture and manage real-time data on livestock health, location, and environmental conditions, leading to more efficient and sustainable farming practices.

"Farms are often located in remote areas with a lack of access to wireless technologies. Because of this, they rely on man hours and manual methods of managing their livestock and produce," said Sriram Subramanian, Director of Product Management with Skylo. "But that doesn't have to be the case, especially with the advent of NTN. Together with Druid Software, we are offering farmers a way to connect the sensors on their animals and amongst their crops to centrally manage the insights using reliable and cost-effective satellite connectivity solutions."

Visitors to MWC Las Vegas will have the opportunity to explore how Skylo and Druid are working together to support multiple use cases. The demonstration will showcase how real-time data from connected sensors can empower farmers to make informed decisions, enhance animal welfare, optimize resource allocation, and ultimately increase productivity.

"We are excited to join forces with Skylo to bring an advanced connectivity and innovative approach to the agriculture industry," said Andy Greig, President for North America at Druid Software. "With Skylo's NTN service and IoT solutions, our Raemis™ core network platform leverages state-of-the-art technology to connect IoT devices in agriculture. We equip farmers with the necessary tools to excel in an increasingly data-driven world."

Skylo and Druid Software invite attendees, partners, and industry stakeholders to visit Druid's booth (#1024) at MWC Las Vegas from September 26 - 27 to learn more about their collaboration and witness firsthand the impact of their cutting-edge solutions on the future of agriculture.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
