RUTM50: 5G Router for Smart Farming Tractors


  • The future of smart farming is 5G, which is crucial for high-speed data transfer and minimal lag for autonomous farming equipment.
  • Teltonika’s RUTM50 5G cellular router is tailor-made for this industry with 5G technology, offering blazing-fast cellular speeds up to 3.4 Gbps and a robust set of reliability features to meet the demanding needs of smart farming tractors.
  • Additionally, RUTM50’s built-in GNSS capabilities enable more precise and efficient management of your smart farm’s tractor fleet, further optimized by NTRIP support.

The Challenge:

Smart farming is rapidly evolving, offering significant potential to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve yields. In 2022, the global smart farming market stood at $13.06 billion and is expected to reach $14.69 billion in 2023, highlighting its rapid growth trajectory.

Driving this growth is the adoption of 5G technology. 5G’s high bandwidth and low latency enable real-time communication between smart agricultural equipment, including autonomous tractors, and the network. This allows for smoother operation, wider coverage areas, and enhanced reliability and security for remote operations.

These are not just theoretical concepts. Across North America, smart farms are already leveraging 5G-powered IoT systems to boost yields, optimize efficiency, and reduce operational costs. Farms that haven’t embraced 5G risk falling behind in this competitive landscape.

The Solution: RUTM50 for Smart Farming

The future of farming is smart and connected. 5G technology is revolutionizing agriculture by enabling autonomous tractors and a wide range of smart farming tools. At the heart of this revolution lies the 5G router, a powerful device that ensures seamless communication and data transfer between these smart machines and the cloud.

Here’s how 5G routers are transforming agriculture with smart tractors:

  • Unprecedented Speed and Low Latency: 5G delivers ultra-fast data transfer speeds, enabling real-time communication between tractors and other agricultural machinery. This ensures precise and efficient operation, minimizing downtime and optimizing resource utilization.
  • Enhanced Automation: With real-time data streaming, 5G allows for greater automation of tasks like crop monitoring, irrigation, and harvesting. Tractors can now autonomously navigate fields, optimize routes, and make decisions based on real-time data, reducing manual labor and increasing efficiency.
  • Improved Data Collection and Analysis: 5G facilitates the collection of vast amounts of data from sensors deployed across farms. This data can be analyzed in real-time to gain valuable insights into soil conditions, crop health, weather patterns, and other critical factors. These insights can then be used to make data-driven decisions for improved yields, resource management, and overall farm profitability.
  • Greater Connectivity and Collaboration: 5G enables seamless connectivity between farmers, agricultural experts, and other stakeholders. This allows for real-time collaboration, data sharing, and remote monitoring, leading to improved decision-making and problem-solving capabilities.

By integrating 5G routers with smart farming technologies, farmers can:

  • Increase Productivity and Efficiency: Automate tasks, optimize resource utilization, and reduce waste.
  • Improve Crop Yields and Quality: Gain real-time insights into crop health and optimize growing conditions.
  • Reduce Costs: Minimize labor costs, optimize resource usage, and improve decision-making.
  • Increase Sustainability: Implement smart irrigation strategies and reduce environmental impact.

One example of a powerful 5G router for smart farming is the RUTM50, the FCC-approved 5G router designed for North American smart farms. This powerhouse delivers blazing-fast speeds of up to 3.4 Gbps and supports both SA and NSA 5G architectures.

At the heart of your autonomous tractor:

  • Effortless Installation: Mount the RUTM50 inside the cab or on the roof for seamless connection to the tractor’s main controller.
  • Intelligent Operations: Connect a wide range of smart devices like hydraulic actuators, weather sensors, and obstacle detection systems for peak autonomy.
  • Enhanced Precision: NTRIP support ensures high-accuracy GNSS data for optimal navigation.
  • Uninterrupted Connectivity: Auto-failover, backup WAN, and 5G MIMO antenna guarantee stable connection, even in remote areas.
  • Seamless Management: Monitor performance, configure settings, and troubleshoot remotely for complete control.
  • Built to Last: Compact, sturdy aluminum casing withstands harsh agricultural environments (-40°C to 75°C) and vibrations.

RUTM50 empowers smart farming with:

  • Increased Productivity and Efficiency: Automate tasks and optimize resource utilization.
  • Improved Crop Yields and Quality: Gain real-time insights for data-driven decisions.
  • Reduced Costs: Minimize labor costs and optimize resource usage.
  • Increased Sustainability: Implement smart irrigation strategies and reduce environmental impact.
