The need for speed, network speed that is… and increased network quality and access is driving the need for telecommunication carriers to slowly begin shutting down their 2G cellular towers to free up 2G spectrum for enhanced 3 and 4G services.
The need to migrate is therefore imminent, but there are some significant benefits to migrating that might cause you to look upon the transition in anticipation.
Faster, high efficiency networks will enable carriers to use available bandwidth as efficiently as possible and higher speeds will allow for enhanced application/solution development which will benefit end-users. For example, future fleet vehicles will be able to benefit from real-time streaming and driver dash cameras – technology that is just not supported on 2G networks.
When you consider the amount of innovation that has occurred in the past few years, particularly relating to fleet management – we can only dare to imagine the amount of information we’ll be able to access from our fleets and how that information might translate into improved strategies, operations and earnings.
So….Are your vehicles or assets equipped with 2G Locators? Want to jump on the bandwagon? We don’t blame you!
