What’s in Your Vehicles?

Have you forgotten what happened when the 2G network began to sunset? GPS devices started to slow down and even stop reporting in pockets around the country – at first. Remember what came next? Lost assets, increased risk. The same thing is happening with CDMA and 3G right now. And if your GPS provider is telling you that they have a letter from the carrier, beware and make sure you know all the facts!

CDMA and 3G technologies will soon be obsolete – are you prepared?

The global LTE race is on! Knowing what the carriers are doing can help you build the right game plan:

  • Verizon is pushing to be the first U.S. based, full LTE network, thus an aggressive 3G and CDMA sunset date of December 31, 2019. New device activations have already ceased. (Source: Android Headlines)
  • T-Mobile’s CTO Neville Ray, has expressed his desire to sunset 3G in 2019. (Source: PC MAG)
  • The AT&T window for sunset is longer – the end of 2021. However, they have already stopped certifying new 3G parts and by the end of 2018, will no longer issue SIM cards for 3G devices. (Source: AT&T)
  • While Sprint is yet to make any official announcement, may be merging with T-Mobile and have plans to launch 5G by 2019 which likely means less focus on 3G and older technology. (Source: The Verge)

Now’s the time to eliminate the guesswork and make sure you’re protected. Move to 4G LTE with Advantage GPS today!

Switch to 4G LTE now – find out why

Switching to 4G LTE technology is the best way to ensure your valuable assets are protected today and into the future. Advantage GPS is already shipping FCC certified 4G LTE devices at no extra charge. With 4G, you get better coverage, better performance and better power management.

Network providers don’t turn off bandwidth and access points like switching off a light. They will start gradually allowing their geographic coverage to degrade over the next couple of years. Your vehicle connections will begin to lag and eventually go down. Some will be fine one day and gone the next. Because there is no predictable schedule for where and when the services will decline, making the move to 4G LTE now is the only way to avoid disruption.

Is your outdated GPS provider putting your business at risk?

Maybe.

  • First, it’s important to be clear about what your current provider is selling you. If they are pushing CDMA or 3G for new deployments, I would be concerned.
  • Check your airtime agreements going forward to make sure you’re not being duped into paying for services beyond the sunset dates.
  • Ask your provider if they know ahead of time when the sunset will affect your area.

As a leading automotive technology provider, we have been talking with all the major carriers throughout North America and monitoring what is happening with 3G and CDMA technology. We can tell you, now is the time to switch to 4G LTE.

Many of our customers switched from their outdated service providers so they could partner with a progressive technology company who always has their back. Advantage GPS been shipping FCC certified 4G LTE devices since December 2017 – at no additional cost.

We are on a mission to eliminate outdated technology and that’s why we ship 100% 4G LTE devices nationwide.

How critical is it to switch to 4G LTE now?

If you do nothing, you’ll eventually find yourself in a panic as entire sections of your city or state lose 3G and CDMA and you start losing thousands of dollars in assets.

In fact, here’s a cautionary tale from the 2G sunset from 2016, “When AT&T turned off its network, about 70 percent of the buses and trains in the San Francisco rapid transit system suddenly disappeared from maps. It took several weeks to upgrade all the legacy devices.” (Source: Hologram)

How can I future-proof my GPS tracking solution?

Technology will never stop evolving. If you are sticking with a provider that’s struggling to keep up with 4G LTE, it’s only going to get worse. The sure sign of this is when they tell you 2G, 3G or CDMA devices for new deployments are still good enough. They no longer are.
