GPRS Solves Address Issues
General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a communication technology that allows data acquisition systems to overcome the difficulty of cabling for wide area remote sites. GPRS applications are becoming more and more prevalent due to the ease with which they can be implemented, but the dynamic IP address issues associated with GPRS networking continue to frustrate system integrators. For wide coverage areas and hard-to-wire locations for remote monitoring and alarm applications, such as traditional river monitoring systems, construction is difficult because river environments are not well suited for using wire or fibre transmission lines. In comparison, GPRS technology gives system integrators an excellent alternative.
