GPRS data gateway simplifies M2M and telemetry applications

October 16, 2013 // By Julien Happich
TRS-Star GmbH has unveiled a smart GPRS gateway which specifically simplifies M2M (machine to machine) and telemetry applications. The central element of the device is a compact quad-band GSM/GPRS communication module which provides the connected end devices with data transmission via the mobile phone network.

Application-specific data can be transmitted with the help of common protocols such as SMS / PPP / TCP / UDP / HTTP/ FTP / MMS / HTTP/ SMTP and IP-T. The end devices are in turn connected to the smart data gateway using standard digital interfaces. Four digital inputs and also one USB, RS-232 and RS-485 interface respectively are available for this.

Due to its universally engineered system architecture, the smart data gateway addresses numerous M2M applications. The open system architecture makes it possible for smaller customer-specific applications and protocols to run directly on the smart GPRS data gateway. An engineering service is available for customer-specific extensions to the application or for the integration of specific protocols. Due to its high degree of flexibility, the TRS-Star smart GPRS data gateway provides an extremely compact and powerful interface between devices and servers.
