ATTENTION - 3G shutdown in Germany!
The frequency range that will become available as a result of the UMTS switch-off is earmarked for the expansion and extension of the LTE network (4G and 5G).
Mobile network providers in other countries have also already started or are planning to start the 3G switch-off.
End devices that support 3G/UMTS technology at most will fall back to the slower 2G network standard.
In addition to many products in the consumer sector, remote maintenance routers are also affected. In the future, these devices will only be able to use data services with very low speed and data transmission requirements with 2G. For remote maintenance, this means that even under ideal conditions there is only a very small chance of being able to perform remote maintenance.
In order to be able to guarantee smooth and secure operation of your systems, we recommend the use of an LTE router.
Please check in good time in your machines and plants whether the remote maintenance routers used there are affected by the 3G switch-off!
