I design and program this type of data logger with telemetry as contract work. There is a lot of planning and programming and circuit board designs. It's not trivial especially if you want to scale it up from a couple of loggers to many more. I assume that you want to monitor a number of bee hives in close proximity and send data to the internet. Then each hive logger should only have xbee type of RF transmitter to send data to a central router that sends data out using a cellular modem. You don't need cell on each hive. Then if you are expanding to different bee "farms", each farm has a hub and a number of loggers to send data via their own hub. We're not talking about logging data in remote areas so hopefully you can run power to each hive to rid the need for battery or solar panel and charger, which is a huge cost.
Great project to try and learn a lot from building one such logger. At some point in the future, you may need some technical consultants to scale it up if that's what you want eventually :)
