Abstract

A significant portion of the world has no mod- ern communications infrastructure. In addition, a large number of the people in these areas have a very limited income level. Industry for these areas includes agriculture, mining, and forestry. This arti- cle describes a method for providing a low cost ser- vice for basic information transfer to these remote areas. This messaging could support ordering sup- plies, selling product, checking on weather, notify- ing of some emergency or change of plan, or provid- ing some other type of messaging services.
