Which Zetifi products are available?

Our ZetiCell and ZetiRover have both been approved for purchase as part of the FoTF program. These products can provide broadband connectivity anywhere on your farm. Wi-Fi you can use to connect cameras for remote monitoring or fill in coverage gaps so you can access your farm data and dashboards from anywhere you need to!


The ZetiRover is a roaming Wi-Fi hotspot for vehicles and farm machinery. Powerful antennas and innovative multi-carrier software converts patchy coverage into fast long-range Wi-Fi for voice, video and data.
