AgFiniti® Provides Flexibility for Your Operation
One of the many advantages to the AgFiniti wireless platform is the flexibility it offers. You have the ability to choose the wireless solution that works best for you; from the wireless provider that works best in your area.
Many already have a wireless solution that will work with AgFiniti. If you have a smart phone or tablet with a cellular data plan, you may have a device that is capable of becoming a “personal hotspot”. These devices can turn their cellular data connection into a Wi-Fi signal for other devices to connect to. One thing to note, some smartphones on the market today aren’t capable of performing this function and making a call simultaneously.
For this reason Ag Leader recommends using a dedicated hotspot device that can be left in the machine, ensuring any operator that enters the cab will be able to utilize the features that AgFiniti has to offer. There are many options when it comes to hotspot devices, most cell companies offer a hotspot that can be added to your current cell plan. There are also third party companies that offer low usage plans at varying price points, which may be a good fit for many operations.
Cellular plans aren’t the only option for utilizing AgFiniti; if your operation has a wireless network that’s accessible from the field, office, or shop, you can easily connect your Ag Leader display’s to your AgFiniti account without having to utilize cellular data at all.
There are many options for wireless access; the flexibility of AgFiniti allows you to choose which option fits your operation best.
