Why WH Security will be upgrading from 2G cellular communication to 3G

Learn why WHSecurity will be upgrading from 2Gcellular communication to 3Gand what you need to do.

You may have heard that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has made the decision to stop supporting cellular service that uses 2G technology. They are requiring upgrades to all cellular towers between now and 2017. As new cellular communication technology enters the scene, adjustments need to be considered and implemented to ensure proper signal communication. Through 2017, national cell carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, etc. will be phasing out 2G technologies and replacing it with 3G technology.

Why this is important:

This is important for those who have 2G technology in their cellular communication device, which is part of many security systems. Cell towers are being changed over to newer technology daily and by January 1, 2017 2G technology will no longer be supported. As a security company, we want to make sure the cellular device in your home sends the signals to the central station in a timely and accurate manner. With 2G technology there is the possibility that signals could be intermittently sent or not sent at all.
