GPRS, or General Packet Radio Service, is part of the GSM mobile communications infrastructure that allows relatively high speed low cost communications. It is used in the Metron4 to ensure we are able to offer low cost solutions across the world.

Metron4 represents future of remote monitoring! It makes it easy for PowTechnology customers around the world to monitor, control and maintain their assets and critical processes. Building on the success of our award-winning and well-proven Metron2 IoT hardware, it helps businesses improve productivity and service and allows them to create new income streams.

The Metron4 delivers truly innovative Industry 4.0 hardware. Not only does it support 2G, but also 4G (CatM1 & NB1). This means it can be deployed globally, even in geographical areas where the 2G network has been switched off, such as the US and Australia.

The UK will still operate a 2G network for some time, but your Metron4 telemetry will be future-proofed … fully-prepared for developments in industrial communications, as they arise in different parts of the world.

GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communications, which basically the mobile phone network as we know it. It is a worldwide standard, operating in more that 170 countries and supports not just voice communications but also text messaging and data transfer. GSM now provides a viable cost alternative to traditional ‘land-lines’ and the popularity of the networks is testament to the quality of service, coverage and value for money provided. For remote monitoring systems it means that wire free systems can easily be fitted in all corners of the globe, mobile applications can be easily accommodated and the instrument can be moved from one piece of equipment to another with the minimum of fuss.
