The best technologies for replacing 2G and 3G for IoT

2G and 3G networks are sunsetting around the world – so systems integrators must quickly but carefully choose replacement technologies. Analysis shows how newer technologies such as LTE-M, NB-IoT and LTE Cat 1 can support IoT applications typically enabled by 2G and 3G networks – spanning a broad range of use cases such as smart grids, connected mobility and wireless payment. Common questions and issues around this topic include:
- Why are telcos sunsetting 2G and 3G?
- LTE Cat 1 vs. 2G and 3G
- Can LTE Cat 1 be an alternative to LTE-M or NB-IoT?
- Future-proofing IoT deployments
In this Masterclass, our experts provide an update on industry sunsetting and the critical moments when organizations need to make the switch. They also explain which connectivity technologies are the best replacements for applications currently served by 2G and 3G networks, and the steps IoT organizations should take to get this process underway. Speakers also introduce the Quectel product portfolio, and which are best-suited to each use case.
