2G Sunset on the Horizon: We’ve Got You Covered

As 2G GSM technology continues its extended farewell tour, there’s never been a better, or for that matter, vital time for automotive dealers to figure out what exactly the 2G GSM sunset means for them and their dealerships. When will the sunset occur? What does it mean for your collateral management system investments? What does the future of asset tracking look like?

Before we answer those questions, it bears explaining again why this process is even happening in the first place. In short, 2G GSM technology is outdated. It’s old. Antiquated. There’s no shame in stating that fact—after all, the technology has enjoyed a long, prosperous run since being introduced in 1992. Over the last few years, though, it’s been replaced by CDMA, 3G, and now 4G technologies.

While the official sunset date varies from carrier to carrier, it’s generally believed that by 2017 the technology will be on its last gasp. You see, there’s only so much bandwidth on the wireless spectrum to go around, and that slice currently occupied by 2G GSM will only become more valuable as technology improves.

Whether its real-time vehicle location and tracking or comprehensive reporting features, today’s collateral management systems are capable of doing so many things that past systems could not. Thanks to Spireon’s recently announced partnership with Sprint, GoldStar GPS customers can easily upgrade to devices with the latest CDMA technology—which offer a number of profitable and productivity enhancements over their 2G GSM predecessor. That also means that current customers won’t have to worry about implementing a whole new system and training employees on how to use it.

While there’s still time for businesses to get the most out of their 2G GSM devices, it’s never too soon to start thinking about the future.  And now’s the time to contact the experts in GPS tracking… Spireon.  For a limited time only, you can trade in your old GPS tracking devices for our best performing Talon CDMA.  It’s the perfect time to future-proof your business with the industry’s best technology backed by the industry’s only 99.9% performance guarantee.
