The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system that consists of 24 orbiting satellites.
From the known position of three or more satellites a GPS receiver can triangulate its location on the ground using longitude and latitude method. A GPS receiver can determine its 3D position using latitude, longitude and elevation methods from the known position of four or more satellites. Furthermore, GPS also supply data on speed and direction of travel in real-time. GPS has numerous application due to its navigational capability and 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all over the world availability.
Intercel’s modems and routers equipped with GPS functionality are widely used by electricity companies to retrieve billing data accurately and cost effectively.
