GeoCloud Cellular Gateway

GeoCloud Cellular Gateway

Cellular Gateway

GeoCloud wireless sensors and nodes transmit measurements to the internet via a cellular gateway. The gateway has two radio modems, one for the network of sensors and one for the cellular communications, and includes an internal battery that can be recharged by solar panel or mains power.
