4G LTE vs 5G: Dealing with 2G and 3G network sunsets

Clearing up misconceptions around 4G LTE and 5G and outlining migration paths to future-proof applications.

After several decades of service, 2G, launched in 1991, and 3G, launched in 2001, are on their way out. Their phaseout is forcing companies whose devices rely on these legacy technologies to migrate their solutions to newer, better ones. With 4G LTE nearing its peak and 5G gaining momentum, dealing with 2G and 3G sunsets presents a dilemma, not only to businesses whose existing products are affected, but also to those with new IoT products in the pipeline: Should they design their solutions around 4G LTE technology, or should they skip 4G LTE and, instead, focus their development efforts on integrating 5G? In this white paper, we offer guidance on how best to deal with the imminent 2G and 3G network sunsets at the dawn of the 5G era. After clearing up common misconceptions surrounding 4G LTE and 5G technology, we outline migration paths for common application requirements.
