The Sunset of 2G in USA


With the decommissioning of 2G networks throughout the States, it’s important for users to consider options.

When and why?

With two principle technologies powering 2G – GSM & CDMA, both have been hit with the proliferation of 4G driven by data-hungry mobile devices and applications. Whilst CDMA has coped by sharing their spectrum with 3G and freeing up capacity for 4G deployment, GSM has been less fortunate with providers having to eventually ‘sunset’ 2G networks in favour of 3G/4G LTE.

The impact.

Whilst some carriers will continue to support the 2G spectrum up to around 2020/2021, the inevitability is that users must now start the transition process. For some, technology in use may be coming to its natural end. For others, the costs of decommissioning, upgrading and/or complete replacement of devices must be considered.

And where applications simply don’t need the capacity of the new spectrums, it’s important to consider the long-term impact of the 2G sunset. This may involve migration, SIM-swap to networks still committed for the mid-term, or device change.

Next steps.

With key decisions to be made, Wireless Logic will be on hand to review current deployments and lay out the most appropriate strategies to ensure business continuity, at the right cost. With a number of customers utilising both national and global 2G connections in US-based projects, now is the time to talk.

Business Solutions – mobile broadband


Wireless Logic has launched ‘Business Solutions’ – a new and innovative sales proposition delivering mobile broadband applications across multiple uses and sectors.In developing the new service, Wireless Logic’s product marketing team have focused on providing brand-leading hardware options combined with the appropriate mobile tariff to meet an application’s specific requirements. Key to the success is the scoping of the right package targeted at the specific use case, and including attributes such as environment of the sited technology, fixed or mobile deployment, location, network coverage, and levels of usage. Wireless Logic offers configuration and testing of the solution, enabling out-of-the-box working.

Commenting on the launch, Julian Heaton, Product and Services Manager for Wireless Logic said: “Business Solutions is a natural progression to work that we’ve already been managing in the mobile broadband arena.

Our goal has been to formalise and strengthen relationships with our hardware partners and develop service delivery solutions to enable roll-out of complete ‘ready-to-run’ broadband platforms. Of course the solution is ideal for mobile applications, and where it is not possible to deploy a fixed line. However in many cases rapid deployment is business critical, and it’s here that our Business Solutions offerings will excel over the more traditional ADSL fixed line option.”

A team of mobile broadband specialists has been assembled to deliver on this new and important business stream for Wireless Logic. With a growing portfolio of hardware router solutions, Wireless Logic expects to see implementation across numerous vertical markets in the months ahead.
