Smart Connectivity, Connected Infrastructure, & the…

LOOKING FORWARD: THE FUTURE OF SMART FARMING Global challenges such as extreme weather, fluctuating labor costs, overpopulation, and the resulting hunger crises can be mitigated through smart farming practices. There is tremendous potential to positively impact agriculture worldwide. Reaching that potential will require reliable connections between hardware, software, sensors, data analytics, and wireless technologies. M8 and M8-D connectors will play an important role in building the robust IoT networks that are the foundation of smart farming.
