Sprint connects the cow (the moo kind)

SANTA CLARA — Sprint has cows connected to its CDMA network. Not cells on wheels, COWS, but actual bovines. Farmers in Wisconsin have started using M2M geo-location collars to track their livestock, monitoring when and where they wander to pasture. Quite literally, they’re tracking when the cows come home, said Wayne Ward, vice president of emerging solutions at Sprint.

The trend has really already begun through wearable connected devices, Ward said. Sprint is already running programs where heart rate monitors and wearable tracking devices are affixed to the patients with heart conditions or suffering from dementia. The medical and health industries have both taken a keen interest in other connected monitoring solutions, he said.
