2. Can mobile telemetry
and Telemetry Plus work in areas that do not have mobile phone
3. Will Telemetry Plus work with any GPRS, 3G, or
modem on the market?
Plus works with several smart modems on the market today such as the Wavecom
Fastrack Supreme, the Wavecom Fastrack Xtend, or the Multitech
is a particular modem you are
interested in please ask.
Whats the difference between a standard modem and a smart modem?
GPRS, 3G, or NextG modem requires the field device to be IP capable
and implement VPN encryption. Many existing field devices do not
support such modems. A smart modem on the other hand, once loaded with
the Telemetry Plus software can transparently manage the IP connection
and VPN functions on behalf of the field device, creating a virtual
serial connection across the network.
