How to get involved

Farmers

All eligible NSW farmers signing up for The NSW Farms of The Future Program will have access to the funding towards the deployment of network connectivity and device solutions through the Agtility Solution Provider Program which provides remote monitoring for their farms.

This technology can help farmers to make better decisions, reduce risk and gain more control, as well as drive consistent maximised productivity.

IoT Solutions Providers

The NSW Government is working to connect suppliers of agricultural technology, with farmers looking to adopt new digital solutions for their business.

Eligible farmers in the target local government areas (LGAs), upon completion of the Agtech Training Program, will have the opportunity to select monitoring devices, connectivity solutions and dashboards from the Agtech Catalogue of Program Partners.

How does IoT LoRaWAN compare with other technologies?

Range: Your devices can be installed up to 15 km away from the nearest gateway (within line of sight from your device)

Power: Your device powered by LoRaWAN technology will consume 3-5 times less energy than cellular/SIM based-devices.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): When you purchase an IoT device from a Solutions Provider, a significant proportion of the cost of the device comes from the battery. This means that your LoRaWAN-powered devices will have overall reduced costs over time, due to long battery life. The cost savings become even more significant as you roll out a larger number of devices.

Security: Your device and data are highly secure due to the end-to-end cyber architecture and process built in with the NNNCo service.
