#kamisukareview – Solution XL Internet of Things (IoT) based Smart Poultry from PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL Axiata) has been proven to have succeeded in increasing the production of poultry owned by PT Sierad Produce Tbk (Sierad Produce).
The cooperation between the two parties that has taken place in the past year has also succeeded in increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the management of the poultry farm.
XL Smart Poultry Solution
Now the results can be seen, from the results of the evaluation process with Sierad Produce for implementing solutions in Banten and West Java areas, this IoT-based solution has proven successful in increasing the Performance Index (IP) above the National average standard.
Now, the two parties are ready to develop a wider cooperation in implementing these digital solutions.
XL Axiata Chief Enterprise & SME Officer, Feby Sallyanto said, “This technology does not only play a role in digitizing the cage, but can also help as a personal assistant for farmers such as notification and alert features, and also integration into the broader poultry industry ecosystem.
“The collaboration with Sierad Produce last year was a great opportunity for us at XL Business Solutions to develop solutions based on real situations faced by our clients.
“Furthermore, we and Sierad Produce will make a major expansion in implementing the XL Smart Poultry solution.”
Feby added, the Performance Index, which is called, is one of the measures used to assess the success of a chicken farming business based on the level of the number of live chickens, the weight of the chicken harvest, the age of harvest and the FCR (Feed Conversion Ratio).
Increasing IP above the national average is an achievement in itself which proves that digitalization can improve production performance and crop quality which in turn can increase the profits of chicken farming.
These results will be very difficult to achieve if using old methods or without applying this solution.
The cooperation development plan that will be realized by both parties is the democratization of technology where the XL Smart Poultry solution will be expanded and reach all chicken farms in Indonesia, which is estimated to reach 70,000 – 80,000 chicken breeders.
According to Feby, this is a concrete manifestation of the 4.0 industrial revolution in the poultry industry sector by using XL flexIoT, which is a unified full-stack IoT platform with Telco-Grade standards that provides security, easy integration and scale-up of your business.
In the span of the last year in cooperation with Sierad Produce, XL Axiata has also continued to develop its XL Smart Poultry solution. Various new innovations continue to be implemented.
In the third quarter of 2019, developments were made such as the use of devices to protect sensors from water ingress during the cleaning process, adjustments to formulas and algorithms to follow the latest standards in the poultry industry and additional analytics to analyze feed supplies using load cells in the feed hopper.
Manfbenefits and benefits
There are at least five advantages that chicken farmers can get by applying this solution, farmers can monitor environmental conditions in real-time ranging from temperature and humidity to light levels, wind speed, CO2 levels, and ammonia.
Then, breeders can monitor chicken feed and drink consumption as well as the results of growth and development of chickens through the daily indicator ABW (Average Body Weight) or average daily weight.
Farmers will also get alerts and notifications directly so they can be more responsive in handling things in the cage.
The next benefit is that the XL Smart Poultry can help farmers automate fan operations by adjusting the temperature and humidity of the environment to achieve the daily target temperature in the cage.
Farmers can also analyze the performance of several existing indicators such as FCR, IP, FE (Feed Efficiency), and Depletion or Mortality rate through the XL Smart Poultry Dashboard either through the website or mobile application. Finally, breeders can also monitor the status of each sensor and carry out the calibration process through the dashboard.
XL Axiata's commitment to IoT development is manifested in the development of the NB-IoT network in more than 30 big cities, the development of the flexIoT platform as an IoT Solution Enabler, and the activation of X-Camp as a development center and RnD that brings together Industry and Makers.
Until now, thousands of companies have been actively utilizing products from XL Business Solution to grow their business.
