What is the 3G sunset?
What does the 3G network shutdown mean for my business?
What this means for fleets with 3G telematics hardware:
• Lose connection to vehicle and driving data
• Unable to track vehicle location or monitor speeding
• Risk of compliance violations
Any company that relies on 3G technology to do business will likely be impacted by the shutdown. Industries that will be affected include heavy truck transportation, courier and delivery, construction, utilities, oil, gas and mining, food and beverage, and many others.
Planning tips for making the switch from 3G to LTE
1. Make an inventory of all your 3G telematics devices.
2. Calculate the time needed to remove and replace the 3G devices in your fleet vehicles.
3. Choose your telematics installer.
4. Schedule the installations.
5. Communicate the change to your fleet team and assign responsibilities for the roll out.
By upgrading sooner than later, you can start benefiting from newer technology and even save on costs.
For procurement, some fleets may also need to write a new telematics request for proposal. Looking for help on what to include?
