We offer a range of standard and bespoke British manufactured and designed solutions for Farming, Agriculture, Dairy & Creameries and Fisheries. These are designed to improve efficiency, improve productivity, enhance farm security, cut pollution, conserve and control water, control wastewater storage and discharges into the environment to help prevent fines.
Radio Data Networks (RDN) have already won multiple industry awards for their innovation in the areas of remote measurement, radio telemetry, monitoring, security, water supply, wastewater management and pollution control to help businesses work towards net zero on their farms to achieve the NFU’s 2040 net zero goal as well as prevent fines from the Environment Agency.
Our solutions can operate in areas devoid of cellular coverage and we are the only company in the UK to offer solutions of this kind with the option of legal protection under our National Ofcom radio licence. Ofcom licensing not only means that operation is protected in law against jamming and interference, but we are also able to construct systems with a much greater operating power, which means greater distances, improved reliability, the ability to operate through forests, over hills, etc. We are also able to send unlimited numbers of messages and are able to build systems with mixed voice and data. As we write our systems send over half a billion messages per year across the UK alone.
Over 95% of our solutions deployed to date are battery operated. Many solutions have set industry records for operating from batteries including sensors achieving up to a decade form a single cell.
Where applicable we can also supply solar or wind operated solutions and have a range of custom designed boxes and pole mounts for fixing solar panels safely and securely.
The RDN advantage over cellular for communications is manyfold. With cellular in a state of flux over the 5G migrations and the withdraw of 2G, GRPS and 3G services, operating on RDN’s licenced radio spectrum offers considerable advantages.
