The 3G network shutdown is looming – it’s time to make the move!

Why It’s Crucial to Act:

Major Australian Telco networks are set to shut down 3G services by June 30, 2024. Without timely action, critical systems powering your business may cease to function.

The Countdown Begins:

The 3G shutdown will be complete in less than 200 working days. Act now to implement a new solution before it’s too late. Remember, 3G-only devices will become obsolete, and non-4G voice calling enabled 4G devices won’t support voice calls after this date.

Seize the Opportunity:

Experience the benefits of faster and more advanced networks by upgrading to 4G or 5G. Don’t just plan for the switch-off, let’s work together to build a solution that’s not only ready for today but also for tomorrow.

IoT Applications at Risk:

Is your business relying on any of these systems? Ensure they're future-proofed with a 4G or 5G upgrade.

  • Road and Traffic monitoring systems
  • Weather stations
  • Alarm Monitoring
  • Building Management Systems
  • RTU (Remote Telemetry Units)
  • Pumping Stations
  • Tank Level Monitoring
  • Flood Monitoring Systems

  • Meter reading
  • SCADA/telemetry
  • Eftpos
  • Vending
  • Industrial Alarm Paging Systems (SMS Alarming)
  • PLC remote communications / diagnostics
  • Utilities remote infrastructure such as reclosers
  • Cathodic Protection Systems

Why Act Now?

Avoid the rush

2024 sounds far off, but you’ll need to start planning now to successfully perform an upgrade to 10,000 end points.

Immediate cost savings

Take advantage of transitioning your environment to a lower ongoing cost base now. Don’t wait for the switch-off in 2024.

Avoid hidden surprises

Planning provides the ability to understand the magnitude of migrating your IoT environment. Don’t get smacked with one huge bill!

3G Shutdown Case Study

We've helped organisations big and small with their transition away from 3G

As a provider of transportation services facilitating 80 million trips annually, the Adelaide Metro provides an important service to the people of Adelaide.

With the impending shutdown of the Telstra 3G network, Adelaide Metro needed to transition over 2,000 3G enabled routers to 4G enabled devices to ensure the continuous operation of their services.
