Kerlink and Libatel Collaborate on Lebanon’s First IoT Smart-Agriculture Project

Kerlink Partners with Libatel to Deploy Lebanon’s First Internet of Things Network for Smart Agriculture THORIGNÉ FOUILLARD, France and BEIRUT, Lebanon – Nov. 28th, 2017, 06:00 PM CET – Kerlink (ALKLK – FR0013156007), a specialist and global leader in network solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Libatel, a leading provider of Information and Communications Technology in the Middle East and the Gulf, today announced the first IoT LoRaWANTM smart-agriculture project in Lebanon: an intelligent network monitoring growing conditions at one of the country’s most famous vineyards. The pilot project at Domain Chateau Kefraya, which began this summer, is generating data and information about the vineyard’s terroir, which includes topography, soil conditions, climate and sunlight that give wine grapes their distinctive character. At the project’s conclusion this November, the chateau will use the information to optimize wine-parcel classification over its 300 hectares of vineyards. By monitoring data coming from the vineyards, and permanently controlling the climate conditions, the maturity of the different types of grapes and other specific parameters, the chateau is able to allocate in anticipation the different parcels to the different productions, and especially selects the best grapes for high-end and renamed wine. The customized LoRaWANTM network deployment, which includes Kerlink Wirnet Station technology, is a proof-of-concept project involving Libatel and Ogero Telecom, Lebanon’s largest telecom operator, and will be part of Libatel’s bid to...

IoT innovation in solar powered milling

IoT innovation in solar powered milling Providing energy to help save 100 billion hours of labour every year for the world’s most vulnerable communities Village Infrastructure Angels (VIA) exists to provide rural villages in developing countries with the infrastructure they need to reduce poverty and improve living standards. This includes helping people access electricity for the first time. Eseye, IoT M2M connectivity specialist, has helped VIA to use technology to open a new chapter on how pay-as-you-go solar technology can be applied in rural villages. VIA turned to Eseye to deliver highly secure and reliable global cellular network data through its AnyNet Secure™ SIM. The AnyNet technology provides automatic routing onto up to 440 cellular operators in 190 countries and links seamlessly to the AWS Cloud. Smartly designed, technology, finance and IoT also has the capacity to supply power to an entire micro-energy infrastructure, including community assets such as mills. Jeremy Potgieter, Eseye, Regional Head, SADC, says that the VIA project is an excellent example of what can be achieved in Africa, using the same approach: “Pay-as-you-go solar technology can be applied in several instances across Africa. We are excited to have such a valuable case study to use as a benchmark and example of the power of our technology solutions.” These kinds of labour saving assets have the potential to free 300 million women worldwide from one hour...
