The use of telemetry devices equipped with cellular modems for low-bandwidth measurement and data collection has soared in recent years. There are many aspects to a successful deployment of cellular telemetry devices, from RF-based (signal strength, etc.) to network-based (security, routing, etc.). In some situations, simple static, public IP addressing can be used on cellular devices. In other cases, a private network arrangement must be created in partnership with a cell carrier, to guarantee end device network security. The process of creating a Virtual Private Network (VPN) between a local area network and a remote CDMA wireless service provider is outlined here.
