Companies using old 2G M2M devices such as vehicle tracking, security alarms and vending machines will see their hardware fall silent once the 2G GSM networks finally shut down in 2017.
Vodafone Australia has now announced it will be shutting down its 2G GSM network on 30th September 2017, which means 2G M2M devices in Australia will no longer work. Telstra will shut down their’s on December 1st 2016, and Optus on 1st April 2017.
Upgrading to 3G/4G IoT devices is now the only solution, so it is very important to contact a 3G/4G LTE device vendor to source alternatives to old 2G M2M devices.
