i need an understanding of how to use GPRS network for data c ommunication without going through the internet

I have a real time monitoring system that comprises several remote locations and a central monitoring point. The remote location will have an embedded GPRS enable SIM card for status reporting and the Central location will have the software for monitoring/tracking running on a PC equipped with a GPRS modem.
The concern here in that my central monitoring PC needs a static IP address which all the remote terminal will be communicating to( in this regards internet connection will not be necessary if am able to communicate with the Operator GPRS signal).

Kindly guide me on the necessary steps/ configuration to achieve this

Why do you need a static IP?

What brand/model GPRS modem do you have?

If you can code in a domain name instead, you could use a DDNS service (check in your router - it likely as a setup screen for DDNS) - see http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/howto.html for a how-to.

I googled WT211 and came up with a screenfull of electronic items, none of them GPRS modems.
What is the brand, please?

GPRS is itself a mobile based internet connection. (http://www.gsmfavorites.com/documents/gprs/). However when you use GPRS you dont get a Public IP address. The IP assigned by the Mobile network will not be accessible over the internet also so in case you want to publish the information on the net you would not be able to do so.  I have helped setting up the radio taxi service and work on the the same concept i.e ISP at the server end and GPRS at the other end. So on the server front (Central Monitoring PC) will have to have a public IP. The remote units then can transmit data to this public IP.
