An informative article on the Internet of Things rollout in Australia, with South Australia being the first state to receive the technology. It talks about the technological benefits that producers across the state will be able to access, no matter the location.

This article talks about the internet of things being available in South Australia by the end of 2017 and what producers all over the state can look forward to in the near future.

Key points were as follows:
