Is 2G doomed?

Industry divided when it comes to the future of cellular alarm communicators


I haven’t had an opportunity to speak with many dealers themselves about this subject, but I would have to imagine that this is a pretty frustrating situation. On one hand, you want to be able to provide an affordable solution to your customer that’s going to be reliable, but you also have to weigh if that technology is going to become obsolete at some point in the near future. While I think most people foresaw the demise of landline telephones with the proliferation of mobile devices, the changing of cellular communications protocols has taken place much more rapidly. I think it’s time for telcos to provide the industry with some clarity as it pertains to the viability of these cellular platforms.
