Extending the life of legacy devices
Planning for 2G/3G network sunsetting with 4G connectivity solutions
The scheduled shutdown of many of the world’s 2G and 3G mobile networks may render many legacy IoT devices inoperable as their ability to connect to the Internet becomes disabled. The potential shutdown creates a significant risk and financial impact to businesses and end users who rely on these devices everyday for critical business functions. Retro-fitting existing legacy equipment with custom 4G connectivity devices reduces or eliminates those concerns by easily and cost-effectively extending their life.
Users of 2G/3G devices will be forced to switch to 4G and Wi-Fi based products if they are to continue to benefit from their emergency communications, remote monitoring, telematics, and other potentially life-saving applications. Fixed-income individuals, such as the elderly, and companies with large installed bases may incur high replacement costs, major disruptions to critical processes, and risks to personal safety if their devices and applications no longer function as intended.
