Organizations utilizing low-power IoT applications should be giving increased consideration to their eventual migration from 2G and/or 3G networks to LTE. While the transition seems daunting – and make no mistake, any major change has bumps in the road – working ahead with your timeline and technology requirements in mind will make the process much easier to manage.

Know your timeline

The expediency of your migration to LTE will be dependent upon when your mobile network operator (MNO) plans to sunset its 2G and 3G networks. If your carrier is sunsetting your network of choice sooner rather than later, you may be tempted to switch to another MNO to extend your timeline – that could make the transition even more difficult, as we recently discussed. Your KORE Account Manager or carrier representative will be able to provide all the information you need regarding network sunset dates or network activation deadlines.
