Hi - can anyone advise if there is a commercially made passive audio recorder that can be powered by solar/battery and have 3g/4g connectivity - ideally with compression on the device - and will transfer the data on a regular basis - every 10 mins? We are developing a cloud platform to process vast amounts of audio data and experimenting with various ML and other models to identify species - starting with birds then moving onto other taxa. The results are published in a data lake for analysis. A charity is keen to deploy a sensor in a marsh where only very limited human visitors are allowed - and would like to understand whats living in there in almost real time.

I am not aware of any such connected loggers/recorders but they would be nice.
The AudioMoths have been revolutionary in providing audologging at a low cost but they take a lot of "data muling" (carrying SD cards in and out of the field sites) and swapping of batteries.
