John Deere introduces wireless data transfer technology
John Deere has made data collection much easier with its new wireless data transfer technology.

Previously, customers who need to transfer data will need to store data on a memory card or USB drive and transfer to a computer in the farm office or at home.

The release will eliminate the need for manual data transfer and will be available as a subscription upgrade to JDLink Ultimate with Remote Display Access.

John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group Product Manager Kathy Michael says the technology is essential as more people collect data from machinery operating in the field.

"They analyse the data to improve overall operations and share the data with trusted advisors to help make better decisions," she says.

"With the introduction of Wireless Data Transfer and data sharing on MyJohnDeere.com, overall data collection, transfer, and management will be much easier."

The technology allows data to flow wirelessly to the customer’s personalised portal on MyJohnDeere..com.

Customers are able to access the data from their smart phones, tablets, computers or any Internet enabled device.

From there, data can then be shared with advisors, and be transferred to 2630 Displays farmers are using in the field.

"Producers want a user-friendly system to take advantage of the new data technology," Michael says.

"They want their data wherever they are and with more portability. If data is easier to collect and manage, they will be more likely to use the information to improve overall operational efficiency, thus adding more productivity and profitability to their bottom line."

Retail availability of the new technology is expected mid-2014.
