The VBG-S communicator is recommended for security applications where alarm transmission must be provided on mobile internet network. The main reporting channel is 3G/GPRS (with GSM backup). GSM channel can be used as a backup, in case the GPRS network fails, or in parallel (report both on 3G/GPRS and GSM) as well. VBG-S means the proper security solution in a cost-effective way.
