In rural areas, wireless connectivity often suffers from poor performance due to inadequate infrastructure and geographical challenges like hills and valleys. This results in unreliable and slow internet access, making it difficult for farmers to adopt digital agricultural practices. To address this, GeniusNetwork offers a solution by providing reliable 5G connectivity tailored for rural areas, allowing farmers to use digital technologies like sensors, drones, and agricultural machinery anywhere on their farms.

GeniusNetwork provides customized network solutions for small, medium, and large farmers, as well as agribusinesses, ensuring reliable wireless communication. They have developed various technical use cases to support different applications that require 5G connectivity, such as data acquisition from drones, sensor networks for automated irrigation, and real-time video analysis for harvesting and security control. Their transportable 5G network trailers can be moved between fields, equipped with independent energy supply, edge computing power, and backhaul options for remote management and data transmission.
