Let MultiTech help build your transition plan.


Replacement Products 

There is a shift taking place in the world of IoT communications as the telecommunications companies that operate cellular networks migrate to LTE technology. In order to free up spectrum space, many wireless carriers are implementing 2G shutdowns, and in some cases,  3G shutdowns. This means these specific communication bands will soon be obsolete, and the businesses that rely on them for their IoT applications will need to move on to LTE solutions within the next few years. LTE features superior data transfer capacity and speed, so the upgrade will improve efficiency across many industries.

Making the transition from legacy communication technologies to LTE requires a strategic migration plan and the right products to meet business needs. IoT applications vary greatly, so MultiTech provides businesses with specialized products that utilize the LTE standard and minimize disruptions. Our products are fully certified and carrier-approved, so they will seamlessly integrate into your existing operations.
