A global overview of planned 2G and 3G switch-off

    • Matt Arnott

    2G and 3G network switch-off represents a headache for anyone developing connected IoT products. Developers need to know which networks will be available in which territories and for how long. Without this they risk either seeing their devices disconnected or they will see a higher bill of materials (BOM) cost from over-specifying their devices to ensure redundancy. This report catalogues the confirmed shutdown strategies for 2G and 3G networks from mobile network operators across the globe and provide an overview for the rationale behind different strategies.
