Mobitex is ideally suited for telemetry applications, since the traffic generated by these applications consists of short exchanges typically containing only a small amount of data. The network is optimized for this type of bursty traffic and allows many terminals to share the same radio channel. Packet switching also ensures a reliable and secure communications channel and lower costs for telemetry applications, compared with other network technologies, since traffic costs are not affected by time or distance. In addition, a group broadcast function is available that allows a host to poll all remote terminals cost-effectively and instantaneously.

Mobitex accommodates true push functionality. Without being requested, a host can initiate a transmission to a remote device, meaning the host "pushes" the information to the device. This functionality is particularly useful in security applications and other device-to-device applications. The Mobitex network is always available and deliveries are guaranteed with short response time.

Mobitex offers end-to-end solutions and turnkey applications for the security sector. Based on industry standards and using off-the-shelf components wherever possible, these solutions have been designed to meet the specific requirements of the security sector. Terminals are typically integrated units that include both a Mobitex modem and detection and monitoring equipment.
