THE SUNSET OF 2G

The dawn of 4G LTE connectivity brings with it new possibilities for connectivity and mobile devices. But as the introduction of any disruptive technology inherently displaces previous technologies, the widespread demand for 4G is ushering in the decline of 2G connectivity – otherwise referred to as the ‘2G Sunset’. As a solution provider in the M2M or mobile industry, the 2G sunset could have a Signiant impact on your business. This paper will discuss the top 10 things you need to know about the sunset of 2G. The 2G Sunset, as stated previously, refers to the imminent decommissioning of some 2G networks and replacement with 3G and 4G networks over the next few years. Some mobile operators in the US are shutting down their 2G networks in order to use that spectrum to increase data capacity and speed for 4G customers. Some carriers, like AT&T and Verizon, have already begun taking down their 2G capability and “re-farming” their towers for other technologies like 4G LTE.
