Hi, I'm just trying to get an idea of how much an avl device consume in MB, and so choose a Gprs plan accordingly.
I need this information for business fleet management.
Based on support data, ( topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8890
) the bandwidth consumption for a transaction with a device is less than 0.2 kB.
If I consider a truck moving 8 hour a day, for 5 days a week, 22 days a month, and an avl device sending position information every minute, this translate to 176 working hours a month (about 10560 minutes).
Total bandwidth would be 10560 minutes x 0,2 KB = 2112 KB or around 2MB month.
Can please someone with real world experience in this field tell me if this calculation reflect reality, or the totals will be less or much higher ?
