Extend Your 2G IoT Connectivity Until 2020
Cellular carriers have announced their plans to sunset their 2G network beginning in 2016. For many organizations, updating these devices presents a hefty investment in time, funds and other resources. T-Mobile® and Numerex have announced a program that will extend 2G capability through 2020 for IoT deployments, providing mission-critical 2G customer support today and a seamless glide path to LTE deployments in the future.
