Title
(EN) WIDE AREA COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK FOR REMOTE DATA GENERATING STATIONS
(FR) RESEAU DE COMMUNICATIONS LONGUE PORTEE POUR STATIONS DE GENERATION DE DONNEES ELOIGNEES
Abstract
(EN)
A wide area communications network communicating data from a plurality of network service modules (110) through a plurality of remote cell nodes (112) and intermediate data terminals (114) to a central data terminal (120). The wide area communications network collects network generated by a plurality of physical devices such as gas, water or electricity meters, located within a geographical area. The wide area communications network is a layered network having a hierarchical communications topology. The central data terminal (120) controls network operation. Intelligence exists at all layers of the network, thereby easing the workload of the central data terminal (120). The intelligence attributed to each module is a function of the application of that module.

Réseau de communications longue portée communiquant les données depuis plusieurs modules de service du réseau (110) par l'intermédiaire de plusieurs n÷uds cellulaires éloignés (112) et de terminaux intermédiaires de données (114) vers un terminal central de données (120). Le réseau de communications longue portée recueille les données générées par plusieurs dispositifs physiques tels que compteurs à gaz, d'eau ou d'électricité, situés dans une zone géographique. Le réseau de communications longue portée est un réseau en couches ayant une topologie de communications hiérarchique. Le terminal central de données (120) commande le fonctionnement du réseau. Il existe une intelligence à toutes les couches du réseau, ce qui allège la charge de travail du terminal central de données (120). L'intelligence attribuée à chaque module est fonction de l'application de ce module.
