The challenges of the climate, livestock health, and crop storage have always been there for farmers. However, modern agriculture also has to adhere to increasingly strict regulations and demands for visibility.
Digital transformation has enabled a greater understanding of these factors, providing the visibility needed to optimise processes and ensure compliance.
With EchoStar Mobile’s connectivity options, businesses in the agricultural sector can leverage the benefits of LoRa®-enabled devices and Massive IoT. Harnessing resilient S-band satellite services and local terrestrial coverage, our IoT solutions for agriculture services enable real-time critical data transfer from assets, even in the most remote parts of Europe and the UK, supporting better efficiency, sustainability and safety.

Pan-European LoRa®-Enabled IoT Network
Our single pan-European S-band LoRa®-enabled IoT network provides direct-to-satellite connectivity. With this capability, customers working in the agricultural sector can access bi-directional, real-time data transfer from LoRa®-enabled devices wherever their assets are located.
Direct-to-satellite connectivity offers significant benefits for farmers and other agricultural companies with widely distributed assets. Our IoT solutions for agriculture services ensure resilient coverage where terrestrial networks are limited or non-existent, and weather conditions are challenging. This coverage is provided across the area, with no additional infrastructure or roaming agreements required.
Soil Monitoring: An IoT Solutions for Agriculture Use Case
The Dales Land Net Soil Monitor utilises our IoT solutions for agriculture for remote soil moisture monitoring, providing powerful advantages in farming and irrigation applications. It is also highly valuable for monitoring flood and landslide risk and supporting carbon capture initiatives.
By connecting to our single pan-European S-band LoRa®-enabled IoT network, the Dales Land Net Soil Monitor delivers data from remote locations in real-time, unlocking the substantial benefits of this technology.
