RE: modems ???in AVOS

Please let me know if I'm wrong about the following two understandings:
1. Digital is not a "dial-up" option for modems.  Digital is always ON and is a PT to PT type always connected application. 
   There can't be used.
2. Wireless is only going to be used "in-precinct", and is not an option from Precinct to central site (limitations of distance/coverage)

Maryland is also interested in digital  or wireless solution.  Montgomery County, with 2638 units and 227 precincts, decided not to modem in results because they would have been required to run analog lines in most of their precinct locations.
