Fastrack Supreme


#1

Hi,
I am connecting Wavecom Fastrack Supreme to a Mechine. So, i can send run time data/Status of that mechine to a server. for that i have to use the AT Commands to connect to the GSM/GPRS Networks, and transfer the data/files.
My question is i would like to eliminate the AT Cammonds, and implement the S/W to connect the N/W like GSM,GPRS and send the data ( Just like how we are using our mobiles ). Is it possible, by using OpenAT. Please give me suggestions and an idea to implement.

Thanks&Regards
Arise

Yes, it is entirely possible!

eg, see: antronics.co.uk/portfolio/m2m_modem

You will need to obtain an Open-AT SDK (Software Development Kit) from your Wavecom distributor.
The SDK includes all available documentation - including sample applications.

You will need to understand the protocols & procedures for communicating with your machine.

You will also need to do some “system-level” design & development to decide how the data will be received by your “servers” or “back-office” systems, how you will handle the data, and how you will manage the overall system

Note that some design decisions may be affected more by commercial considerations than pure technical details; eg, the choice(s) between SMS, Data call or GPRS may depend upon the tarrifs available to you…
