Dec 1, 2014

Press Release: Hive Minds and the Internet of Bees. PodsystemM2M, the expert in multi-network data SIMs for the M2M industry, has today announced that its Best Signal USA & Europe Multi Network SIM cards have been selected by Arnia for expansion of its remote bee hive monitoring system into the USA.

Arnia provides state of the art remote bee hive monitoring systems for beekeepers, bee farmers and bee researchers, combining hive acoustics with other parameters.

PodsystemM2M Best Signal USA & Europe SIMs roam on multiple networks throughout the USA and Europe at a competitive flat rate, enabling Arnia to expand across the Atlantic without the worry of increased data costs.

When the integrity of research studies and the health of the hives are at stake, bee researchers and bee farmers cannot afford to lose data packets as a result of weak or patchy cellular network signals. Arnia Operations Manager, Peter Sogorski says, “Having the multi network SIMs means the connection will automatically switch to another network, should it be required.”

Podsystem Inc. CEO Sam Colley adds, “We are really excited to be working with Arnia and their innovative bee monitoring application. We are very pleased to be able to provide the reliable M2M connectivity needed to ensure Arnia’s monitors continue to provide a unique insight into hive conditions.”
