Professional Audio Solutions

DID YOU KNOW? Cows that listen to soft rock are more relaxed and yield more milk.

MDT's audio solutions:

  • Provide continuous soft rock (preferred by cows) from XM radio throughout your entire barn
  • Are designed to calm your cows thereby increasing milk yield
  • Provide a buffer from outside noise and distraction
  • Allow for low levels of bass (ideal for cows)

Our audio solutions are ideal for robotic dairies.

Facility Networking

MDT will install a network to connect all of your facilities and buildings. We recommend Cisco components. Facilities will be linked with fiber optics or through wireless access points.

Our long range wireless access points are able to span miles.

The fiber that we install is fast and is armor-encased it is very well protected. Fiber is not susceptible to interference from variable frequency drives.

Servers, workstation, and network components will be installed where necessary.

Backup Power Solutions

In the event of a power interruption, your computers will remain operational until the generators are running.

MDT recommends APC brand battery backup systems.

Cisco Networking Solutions

Cisco manufactures high performance components. MDT installs Cisco brand routers, switches, and wireless technologies. We recommend secure firewalls and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). These work with T1 internet connections that do not have a distance limitation (as DSL or cable do) for rural areas.

Quality hardware solutions will maximize your uptime.
