Driver: Flexibility associated with the cellular modems

Cellular modems are explicitly designed in order to meet the connectivity challenges and connect serial devices to cellular networks easily. Cellular modems transmit short messages (SMS) and data over GSM/GPRS mobile networks. The modems can be used to increase the competence of communication and maintenance, and does not require extra training. Additionally, the modems can be mounted on a DIN rail or wall. Most of these modems are wireless and portable and easy to use during travel. The modems accepts a wide range of power input, making it suitable for use with a variety of field power sources. The two serial interfaces on the single modem makes it easy for attaching to several devices, such as, multi-dropped electric meters, stand-alone controllers, and PC COM ports. Moreover, the extended operating temperature (-25 to 70°C) design makes the cellular modems it suitable for heavy industrial applications. Thus all the above features makes the use of modem very flexible and reliable, thus increasing its adoption across several applications and hence driving the market growth.

Restraint: Restrictions of the cellular connectivity

Although the network speed of the cellular modem have increased in the past few years, cell connections to the internet usually offer slower data rates than other forms of broadband internet, which is even below 1Mbps most of the times. The Internet providers normally apply limits on the data usage of their cellular service based on the plans taken by the customer, ether daily or monthly. When the user is not subscribed to an unlimited data plan, surpassing these bandwidth quotas results in termination of service or charging extra fees. Nowadays, the data providers, slow down the service speed after the user reaches a specified limit, rather than imposing extra charges to the user.
