Beyond the Bale : September 2017
AWI’S WIRELESS FARM TRIAL PROJECT Expressions of interest are welcome from woolgrowers across Australia, but the trial is limited to ten participants. To express your interest to be one of the trial participants, simply email AWI at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information clearly stated: INTEREST IN PARTICIPATING IN THE TRIAL HOW TO LODGE YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST Tony Butler runs 8,000 sheep in a mixed enterprise at his 2,600ha family farm ‘Joyce’s Park’, near Newstead in central Victoria. He says he would like this wireless technology on his farm because it would benefit the bottom line of his business. “This technology will give us the means to remotely monitor a distant section of the property that persistently has been the target of sheep thieves in the past,” Tony said. “As stock theft is rampant across this part of Victoria, and sheep values are historically high, we would hope that this technology will offer a degree of security, and maybe deterrence, that we have not had access to up until now.” 1. Your name and contact details (email, phone, street address). 2. A satellite photo of the area of your farm in which you propose to install the network (eg a screenshot from Google Earth, similar to the photo of Tony Butler’s property above). 3. An approximate indication of how many units (antennas, cameras etc) you anticipate you will use and where they would be located on your map. There has to be line of site between antennas, ie with no obstructions (such as trees, buildings) between poles/antennas. There can be a distance of up to 20 km between point-to-point antennas. 4. What you want to monitor, or to what location(s) you want to provide a Wi-Fi hotspot. If you are selected by AWI for the trial, AWI will verify that the equipment requirements that you have estimated is appropriate for your requirements. If you are interested in being a trial participant, please lodge your expression of interest by Tuesday 31 October 2017.
