Wyld Networks, Delta-T Devices Sign Framework Contract for Connected Soil Sensors

Wyld Networks has signed a framework contract with Delta-T Devices, a provider of sensors for the agricultural technology (agritech) sector, to develop and supply Wyld low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) wireless connectivity for Delta-T's soil-moisture sensors. The value of the initial order is £105,000, the companies report.

The co-developed solution will enable commercial growers and researchers to access and share critical sensor data. The wireless-enabled devices will connect to the DeltaLink-Cloud data-sharing platform to offer a tool to help improve crop yield and quality, while reducing environmental damage and costs.

"We are very pleased to be working in partnership to bring together Wyld Networks' IoT wireless technology and Delta-T's advanced soil moisture sensor solutions," said Alastair Williamson, Wyld Networks' CEO, in a prepared statement. "Agritech is a major growth market in the IoT sector, with analyst AMR forecasting the market to grow to $48 billion by 2025."

"We are committed to adding wireless connectivity to our well-established sensor range," added John Newstead of Delta-T Devices, in the prepared statement, "and Wyld Networks' impressive expertise in this area makes it the ideal partner to help achieve our aims."
