WagNet is short for Wireless Agriculture Network. WagNet was created so farmers and agri-business people could capitalize on the power of the Internet. This platform allows producers to impact their bottom line by gaining access to real-time information and proactively manage their operation from anywhere in the world.
Located at each remote monitoring station (ie. Irrigation pivot) is an AgSense RTU (remote telemetry unit) with application specific software embedded on the circuit board. The RTU uses a cell modem, satellite modem or spread spectrum radio to upload data to the Internet. The data resides on our secure web servers located in a nationally recognized data center located in Pittsburgh, PA. To assure quality of service on our end, we utilize several different Internet backbones to accommodate data traffic to guard against a single point of failure.
We are excited to announce that our new WagNet i-Phone app is now available through the I-Tunes app store. Search "wagnet" in the store and you will be able to download from there. Field Commanders can now be easily viewed, controlled, and configured through this app. Other devices, such as Crop Links and soil probes, should be available for viewing through the app later this summer.
