Smart Agriculture

Low power wireless IoT connectivity solutions for smart agriculture

No company in the world offers a wider range of wireless IoT connectivity technologies for smart agriculture and farming than Nordic. Whether you want to monitor crops, soil, weather, irrigation, or locate and monitor animals and farming equipment, Nordic has the complete low power wireless connectivity solution for your needs.

Nordic wireless connectivity solutions for smart agriculture

Nordic's low power wireless protocols relevant to smart agriculture include low power Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, Thread, Zigbee, cellular IoT (both LTE-M and NB-IoT), and DECT NR+. Our integrated wireless SoCs and SiPs combined with our nRF Cloud will provide you with all the hardware building blocks you need to build the optimal smart agriculture solution.

Multiple wireless options for multiple farming environments

Because every agriculture use case differs, there is no 'one size fits all' option. You need a partner who can supply and support you with a complete solution. Farms vary drastically in size and are often located very remotely. This requires both short- and long-range wireless connectivity options, power-saving features, optimization for lower or higher data rates, full flexibility in network topology options from point-to-point and star-to-mesh, and the ability to build a network of any size.

Using the IoT to transform and optimize farming by doing 10x more with 10x less is the only way the world will feed itself sustainably in the years ahead and without destroying the planet. And this is why Nordic is particularly passionate about supporting this fast-evolving sector.
