* Acquisition Methods
 
** manual
 
** Wi-Fi
 
** cellular
 
** satellite
 
** serial
 
* Bandwidth
 
** bandwidth requirements ''(e.g., is 10Hz data needed?)''
 
** where to get broadband POP?
 
** ability of equipment to work with required bandwidth
 
* Line of sight (LOS)
 
** environment, topography, and vegetation
 
** LOS calculators
 
** are repeaters required?
 
* Repeaters
 
** ''See [[Sensor Site and Platform Selection]] considerations''
 
** distance to repeater
 
* Power
 
** how important is real-time accessibility? ''(e.g., what is desired collection frequency?)''
 
** power requirements
 
** on-site buffer size?
 
* Other considerations
 
** reliability of transmission mode
 
** reliability and robustness of equipment
