According to RCR Wireless, there are more than 80 million existing 3G devices on North American networks. However, with the arrival of 5G, mobile network operators (MNOs) are currently sunsetting 3G networks to increase capacity on their LTE networks and expand 5G networks.
Sunsetting 3G is more complicated than 2G, as the standard includes application speeds from 384 Kbps to 14.4 Mbps. Nevertheless, these 3G devices must transition to 4G to continue operation, and the timeline for 3G sunsets makes getting on these migration paths urgent.
There are multiple paths available for 3G migration to 4G LTE, including NB-IoT, LTE-M, LTE Cat 1 and LTE Cat 4. Looking forward to 5G, NR-Light will play a crucial role in 3G migration planning.
Join Telit for a webinar that will explore these LTE migration paths to help you select the best route for your IoT devices. In this webinar, we will explore:
- What the complexity of the 3G sunset means for your IoT devices
- Each LTE migration path and which ones are the best for certain applications and Applications
- The role of NR-Light in the migration to 5G
- Voice, mobility, latency, power consumption and other dimensions you need to evaluate to decide the best path
