mOOvement uses LoRa networks to get the data from the GPS Ear Tags. With LoRa (long range) you can transfer data over long distances, especially in a remote areas (8 kilometres line of sight). All you need is an antenna in a location where it has 3G/4G (ideally a hill) or internet from the homestead.
If you have a big property you can easily set up multiple antennas to cover your cattle no matter where they roam.
Cover any type of terrain with our tailored solutions
This is perfect for small properties who only need to cover up to 8 kilometres radius around the antenna from the homestead.
LoRa antennas can also be installed off-grid in the field. This is preferred when your homestead is not in an ideal location for radio coverage.
The moveable antenna is perfect if you want to move the antenna with your herd.
The network allows connectivity in remote places. Only the antenna needs connection to the internet either through a homestead router, 3G/4G sim card or satellite internet. You won’t need coverage from a telco out in the paddock for mOOvement to work.
Are there costs involved for operating the network?
No. Costs for the operational network (e.g. data and monitoring) are covered by mOOvement.
What is the reach of an antenna in kilometres?
The antenna has a reach of 8 kilometres, line of sight. Thick forestry and hilly landscapes have a negative impact on the signal.
Can I use the network for other applications?
Yes. The LoRa network can also be used for water monitoring, fence monitoring, etc.
“I have been able to view cattle to make management decisions and have been able to identify an injured animal and get a vet out and save her and her calf.”
"We have a much more secure and relaxed feeling with the stock in many ways, not just knowing where they are!"
"In our country, it’s difficult to get a clean muster. We are also next to a national park and lose cattle through the fences. If we get an alert we can go to the animals."
