Ag Leader Simplifies Connectivity in the Cab
Building upon its vision of full farm connectivity, Ag Leader announces InCommand™ display users will be able to access all in-cab, internet-based functionality through a single data connection source. Today’s farmers need a simple way to access a reliable internet connection in the cab for precise machine control requiring RTK correction and to connect the entire farm with realtime and historical maps and data. With the firmware release in February, InCommand displays will have the ability to connect to NTRIP networks for RTK corrections and Ag Leader’s cloud-based data management platform, AgFiniti®, through the same connection source using one cellular data plan.
“Utilizing the power of InCommand displays and AgFiniti, our vision is providing connectivity across all aspects of the farming operation,” commented Joe Holoubek, Ag Leader Displays Product Manager. “Today’s announcement is building upon that vision by simplifying the connection process for growers.”
A ruggedized cellular modem that automatically powers on with the display and provides internet connection for NTRIP and AgFiniti will be available to purchase through North American Ag Leader dealers. Growers will still have the flexibility to use their own hotspot to bring internet to the cab. The firmware will be released and modems will ship in February of 2018.
