learning

Learn how to DIY your own technologies through our tailored events and workshops. We will equip you with the relevant knowledge to apply these technologies in your own environments. Get involved in Citizen Science, and STE(A)M learning opportunities.

generating unique data captured directly from the environment

Sense your environment

We provide you with field sensors and technologies to help you understand and make sense of your environmental conditions. You can generate unique data about the soil conditions and climate changes on your farm, whilst communities can track public usage of facilities and infrastructure.

create insightful data

We consult and collaborate with you to ensure a tailored system is created to capture and monitor insightful data specific to your environment and business. Rural Network helps create insightful data that allows you to; understand your environment, gain efficiencies, assist with industry audits and compliance, and make decisions based on real life evidence.

Visualise your growth

We help you visualise your results and growth by ensuring your data is accessible to you, and easy to analyse and interpret by creating customised dashboards to display and store your captured data. Rural Network utilises the IoT (Internet of Things), open source software, and cloud networks to connect technologies to your environments.

Open data for all

We believe that data should be open, owned by you and not lock you in. Being open is our ethos; we focus on creating transparent data ownership, flexible access to your data, reducing your risk management, sharing knowledge, and collaborations across industries.

enabling insight, efficiency, innovation and growth

who we are

Our three Adelaide-based cofounders have years of experience in developing IoT sensors, electronics and code and have industry-specific experience across AgriTech, energy, industrial engineering, electronics, oil & gas and IT.

Rural Network aren’t a telco and we aren’t just a product reseller. We are an IoT solutions provider focused on applying LoRaWAN technology to proactively solve our customers’ data challenges.

We manage an expert support network of electronics hardware engineers, software engineers, data scientists and industrial designers, and maintain strong links to both local and overseas manufacturing capacity and supply chains. Through this network,  we can rapidly and cost-competitively source parts and produce prototypes.

how we can help

Rural Network are rolling out wireless LoRaWAN network coverage across regional SA and Victoria to support our business activities with clients and end users.

We own and operate our own segment of the rapidly-growing public LoRaWAN network and have developed an innovative remote monitoring platform. This means that when you buy a gateway and sensor kit from us, you can be sure that your region is also being actively monitored for any faults or outages.

In addition to offering a wide range of LoRaWAN sensors from our curated vendor list, we are investing in R&D to design our own sensors for use in bespoke client solutions. Because we develop the sensors in-house, we know every component and every line of code, so can confidently advise on what is possible, should an off-the-shelf solution not be available.
