Coverage plan pitches seven new mobile sites with 4G technology and IoT networks in the districts of Pergamino and Rojas in the Province of Buenos Aires reaching more than 500 thousand hectares over the next 12 months – in one of the most productive areas of the Argentine countryside.
Telecom has begun the deployment of its connectivity infrastructure in the districts of Pergamino and Rojas in the province of Buenos Aires, within the framework of its strategic plan to promote the Agtech ecosystem, in the agricultural and livestock sector, through the deployment of new sites.
Telecom, as a leading company in the development of the digital economy, and together with important companies in the value chain of the agro-industrial sector deploys seven new mobile sites with 4G technology and IoT networks to strengthen connectivity in key rural regions for agricultural production.
With this development, the first cluster begins, which will create an area of continuous coverage in the districts of Pergamino and Rojas, covering an area of more than 500 thousand hectares.
The companies involved say they’re seeking to reduce the historical coverage gap by bringing connectivity to rural areas, which allows the technological development of Argentine agriculture to be promoted.
With the installation of these seven sites in addition to the current capacity, Telecom will be reaching 97% coverage of the total surface area of both parties and reaching more than 134,000 people.
In the coming weeks, the installation of the first 4G site will begin and will also add Low Power networks exclusively for the Internet of Things (IoT), which will allow people and devices in the area to access the best connectivity experience of Personal’s 4G network, the fastest in Argentina.
With this project, telecom is confident the social and productive challenges of the more than 21 localities that will be reached by this project will continue to be solved.
In addition, the project is seen as adding value and collaborates with the needs of the areas of health, safety and education – bringing new opportunities to improve development and evolution.
In terms of production, the project enables the deployment of new value-added solutions that connect machines, equipment, sensors, devices, etc. that multiply productivity through Digital Transformation processes as a whole.
With the deployment of these sites, connectivity in rural areas and IoT solutions applied to this sector, Telecom helps to reduce the carbon footprint due to the savings and benefits that are derived from the technological solutions that agricultural producers can apply to their activity, generating greater efficiency in costs and time to their daily operation.
Telecom says the deployment continues its commitment to the national agribusiness, providing innovative connectivity and Internet solutions for devices applied to this sector that represent the engine of the country’s economic growth.Click below to share this article
