Connected with 5G
The Green Industrial Automation

The arrival of 5G to agriculture revolutionizes the farming industry. Massive machine-to-machine communications via IoT enable the farm to stay connected with analytics from real-time information. Drones and robotic machines enabled via 5G can map weeds or pests to allow site-specific treatments, and provide plant-specific protection mechanisms. Ultra-reliable low latency communications will enable sharing of data more quickly and efficiently in real-time. Data can be collected via sensors and shared to smart devices enabling decision-makers to stay connected.

UP Squared 6000 empowers the next generation of IoT Edge solutions for industrial-level agriculture applications. With its wide range of features including 5G capability, secured and reliable real-time connectivity, along with programmable PSE and carrier board* extension for enabling additional motor controls and sensors, the UP Squared 6000 is a complete product to help you achieve your goals.
