IT Access and QTnet jointly announced that it will provide IoT solutions for agriculture and aquaculture solutions utilizing ZiFiSense’s ZETA network in Kyshu Japan.

In a demonstration experiment, sensor information for aquaculture management such as water temperature and water level in the sturgeon fish farm in the mountain area of Shiiba village in Miyazaki prefecture, have been successfully collected in the cloud via ZETA LPWAN.

ZETA enables communication over multiple channels by ultra-narrow band. Compared to other LPWA networks. ZETA offers wide distributed access by mesh network, and low power consumption communication in both directions. It is an optimal technology for IoT communication infrastructure.

In addition, since a single ZETA access point (AP) can cover a wide area, remote monitoring can be carried out in real time even in mountainous areas where there is no communication or power infrastructure, and it is expected that the burden of aquaculture management of aquaculture companies can be greatly reduced

In the future, ZiFiSense and IT Access will analyse the data collected from various IoT sensors placed through AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning technologies for providing highly efficient IoT solutions and data analytic services utilising ZETA.

IT Access, as a joint venture between Innotech and ACCESS, develops sales and engineering services for software for various embedded devices (RTOS, middleware) in digital consumer electronics, mobile communications, industrial and OA markets. QTnet is a telecommunications carrier of the Kyushu Electric Power Group.
