Permaconn GPRS is a data network that enables always ON connections. The General Packet Radio Service is a brilliant technology designed to deliver high-speed data over the existing GSM infrastructure. The data link between the Outstation and the Central station is active at all times, allowing the devices to exchange messages at any time. There are no phone call charges or call establishing delays as with the better known GSM services.

Permaconn is the only system that roams from one service provider to another in the event of an outage or any other technical difficulty.

The remote GPRS unit connects to the alarm panel via a dialer or serial interface. The GPRS unit remains online all the time, once enrolled into the system. The Alarm panel sends its data using the Permaconn GPRS network. If the Permaconn unit looses connectivity, it will automatically switch to the other network. The Central Station Receiver Unit (CSRU) receives the data and sends it to the automation software for processing. If one CSRU looses connectivity, the Central station simply switches to the secondary CSRU. The Permaconn GPRS system operates in private networks provided by Optus and Telstra. The VPN guarantees that all data transmitted and received is secure. Further all messages are encrypted end to end using the international Advanced Encryption Standard (AES128).
