Edge Computing Mystery

Understanding Edge Computing

Edge computing revolutionizes data handling for dairy farms, particularly where internet service is spotty. By shifting data processing closer to the source, it empowers your mobile device with immediate processing power, reducing delays and enhancing efficiency through local data processing.

What if I'm out in the field and don't have a good internet connection? Can I still access and update my herd's data?

Absolutely. With DHI-Plus Edge, all your essential herd information is stored right on your mobile device, which means you can view and make changes to your records even when your internet connection is spotty. This is really handy when you're out on the farm and need constant access to your data. Plus, as soon as you're back in range of Wi-Fi, all the changes you've made will automatically sync up with the cloud and your desktop database.

How does DHI-Plus Edge keep track of updates when we're using multiple devices around the farm?

Edge computing makes sure nothing slips through the cracks, no matter how many devices you use. When you're in the office, the central DHI-Plus desktop system collects all the updates from the cloud. It then sends the latest info back up, so your mobile devices can sync as soon as they connect to the internet. This means every bit of data is up-to-date across all devices, keeping your farm's operations smooth and coordinated.

How's DHI-Plus Edge going to change things up for my dairy farm?

DHI-Plus Edge isn’t just an improvement—it's a transformation, designed to meet the specific challenges faced by today's dairy industry. It’s about ensuring that your dairy operation stays ahead of the curve, with technology that is not only easy to use, but is as advanced as it is practical.

DHI-Plus Edge contains a suite of practical tools designed to make managing your herd simpler and smarter. Here’s a look at how these tools bring real benefits to your farm.

Animal Identification
