Security Watch: Ready for 3G/4G

The wheels were in motion even before AT&T announced the formal date for the sunset of 2G cellular service (December 31, 2016). It was a move that was expected and anticipated by Telguard, a division of Telular Corp., based in Atlanta, and the company has responded by releasing a product kit designed to ease the conversions of existing installations into 3G/4G.

Available now through distribution, the TG-KIT can be used to upgrade all 2G (GSM and GPRS) Telguard TG-7 series communicators. With the kit, 2G versions of the TG-7, TG-7A, TG-7F, TG-7FM, TG-7FS and TG-7S can be upgraded without removing the existing enclosure, antenna or power supply. This is especially critical in maintaining a site’s UL certification status.

 “The release of the TG-KIT reaffirms our commitment to making the move to 3G/4G a smooth transition for our dealers,” said Shawn Welsh, vice president of marketing and business development for Telular. “We continue to stay ahead of the sunset date and in 2013 will have an even wider array of communication products that involve broadband and interactive services as well,” he said.

The TG-KIT is available at a cost “less than the price of any product it replaces,” added Welsh. More info:
