LoRaWAN: A Golden Opportunity for 2G/3G Replacement


With major network providers worldwide on the verge of shutting down 2G/3G cellular networks enterprises are considering how and where to migrate their products and services. It's a daunting situation with concerns about potential obsolescence, inferior connectivity alternatives, associated network switching costs, maintaining ROI and much more. The good news is there is a far superior option for not only maintaining current enterprise solutions but also for creating new revenue streams.

The answer can be found in LoRaWAN network connectivity.

LoRaWAN: The Best Choice for Network Connectivity

Regardless of the phase out, cellular 2G/3G technology still struggles to meet the demands of modern data-driven enterprise business strategies, and migration to other options such as LTE or 5G has been slow. LoRaWAN solutions, on the other hand, have seen explosive growth thanks to their optimal capabilities for remote, wide-area outdoor and deep indoor data collection.

The fundamental advantages of LoRaWAN technology can benefit nearly every vertical transitioning away from 2G/3G. With mobile carriers shutting down 2G/3G cellular networks, to which enterprises have connected their solutions for over 25 years, the future can seem highly uncertain. Fortunately, LoRaWAN technology offers a superior choice due to its optimal data usage, sustainable battery life, indoor-outdoor coverage and significantly lower connectivity and device costs. Disruption becomes an opportunity to serve new markets and open up additional revenue streams when joining the LoRaWAN ecosystem of solutions providers, device makers and connectivity partners.
