The article focuses on the use of the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) by the Mobitex computer network industry. The Mobitex industry is looking at the possibilities for using the GPRS mobile technology to complement the narrowband wireless data technology's strengths and provide wider coverage. According to Steven Metlitzky, CEO of Wavenet Technology, one needs to be realistic about where other technologies fit in. Wavenet is already producing the Wombat framework which combines the GPRS with Mobitex.
