New contract to deploy connectivity to rural farms in Spain and Portugal
Smart Rural, a specialist agricultural ICT company, has signed a contract with Avanti Communications, a leading provider of satellite data communications services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Smart Rural has developed a number of proprietary connected devices to control farm systems including irrigation, feeding and CCTV. These products can turn any farm into a smart farm that benefits from increased efficiency and security.
Deployed via Avanti’s HYLAS 1 Ka-band satellite, with 100% coverage of Spain and Portugal, Smart Rural will deliver high speed satellite broadband to even the most remote farms.
Our partnership with Avanti enables us to deliver quality high speed satellite services to even the most rural farms which have previously struggled to access connectivity due to lack of terrestrial infrastructure. Now all farms across Spain and Portugal can benefit from a fully connected Smart Farm.”
Sergio Rodriguez, Chief Executive Officer of Smart Rural
Avanti’s leading Ka-band technology has built in flexibility which enables companies – such as Smart Rural – to deliver important applications such as remote monitoring and CCTV to the agricultural sector.”
