The Most Reliable and Fastest Growing RTK Network in the United States

We have you covered!

DigiFarm VBN (Virtual Base Network) maximizes RTK correction accuracy and reliability by combining all of the bases in our network with powerful server software to create a virtual base station in close proximity to where you are working. That means you can have an RTK signal anywhere within the DigiFarm network. 

 

Advantages

 

  • Compatible with all major brands of GPS receivers

  • Short baseline distance

  • No need to change radio IDs

  • No line shifts

  • No need for a repeater

 

There are two types of RTK in the ag market today: Single baseline RTK and a network solution (or a virtual base network -- VBN). The VBN solution is much more reliable and accurate when compared to single base RTK and is the primary choice for many farmers across the midwest.

How it works

A vast network of DigiFarm base stations send data via the internet into central servers where the data is processed for clients to use. A cellular modem is installed in the tractor cab and is connected to the GPS receiver so that a wireless data connection can be established between the tractor GPS receiver and the DigiFarm servers. 

The GPS receiver on the tractor sends its position into the DigiFarm servers through the cellular modem. The DigiFarm servers respond by creating a virtual base station in close proximity to the tractor and transmitting corrections to the tractor's GPS receiver through the cellular modem. By creating a virtual base station for each vehicle that logs into the network, DigiFarm is able to offer superior accuracy compared to that of a single base RTK provider. This also provides our clients with exceptional redundancy and reliability. 

DigiFarm Beacon v3.0

Seamlessly stream RTK data into any receiver (including John Deere SF3000) without the need for cables. Simply plug the Beacon v3.0 into your receiver, program your login information into the DigiFarm app on your tablet, and hit connect. Within seconds you will be streaming RTK data directly to your receiver. It’s that simple!

 

The Beacon v3.0 is a ruggedized device that enables a wireless Bluetooth connection between GPS/GNSS receiver and a Bluetooth enabled tablet. The DigiFarm NTRIP app supports the iPad, Android and Windows devices. This bridge allows RTK corrections to be passed through the smart device, eliminating the need for additional data plans, radios, or costly RTK base stations. The NTRIP app is available for free from iTunes.

 

The Beacon v3.0 is the industry’s first and ONLY Bluetooth device to be MFi (Apple) certified to stream RTK data using a cellular-capable iPad to all major brands of GPS rovers. Because it’s certified by Apple, we are able to use high power class 1 Bluetooth to optimize communication performance between the Beacon and iPad. Devices that haven’t been through this certification run the risk of limited bandwidth, interrupted data flow, and reduced operating range.
