using GPRS to gather historical data from a modemed voltage measureing device
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a question about an application with GPRS, it's not related to programming, I must apologize if I am in the wrong section, please redirect me if I am wrong.
I have an application where I have a voltage measuring device installed in the field, for example, the desert. The device is able to communicate data via a modem, and sends back the historical trend data.
I would like to use this with GPRS, and I would like to use GPRS so that it can send data using this medium back to my central server.
Can you outline a few things that I will require and need to look at? What will I need and what types of hardware will I need? I believe this means I need a service provider for the GPRS, does this mean I need a cell modem. And how will everything interface together to make it work.
I long for your answers.
