2G and 3G sunsetting has already begun. And 4G LTE is already here. It's time to plan ahead to stay ahead. What's driving the LTE evolution? Carriers need faster and more efficient networks to support future expansion as data demands continue to rise. Customers want better Wi-Fi, more bandwidth, faster connections, and lower latency with greater access and tighter security. Customers also want to better manage IoT devices which are proliferating in astounding rate. By 2020, experts say there will be 34 billion connected devices. That's why LTE is here. Faster speeds, more robust applications, and better user experiences. 2G and 3G are on the way out along with the connections to all your critical data if you don't migrate in time. Are you ready?
The time to put a long-term comprehensive LTE migration plan in place is now. And to be successful, you'll need an expert like Digi every step of the way. You can harness LTE speed, capacity, and longevity with the right Digi routers, with the right performance options for the right job at the right price. And with a robust remote management platform to help with your migration, you can easily update firmware, reconfigure IoT devices, and assure the integrity and security of your network.
Digi helps make the complex simpler with our four steps to 4G approach to your migration planning. Step one, conduct a site survey and router inventory to determine the number, type, and location of all your legacy routers. Step two, evaluate and field test products to determine performance requirements and options and make the right replacement choices. Step three, plot out your installation and train your staff on the product and your replacement sequencing plan. Step four, initiate full-scale deployment to get up to 4G as quickly as possible. This all needs to happen by the end of 2019 or better yet, months in advance to prevent losing touch with your critical asset data. Don't put it off. The more Legacy equipment you have, the longer your migration will take. And delays could impact the success of your company.
LTE is here. And the network sunset has already begun. Let's start your migration conversation today. It's time to plan ahead to stay ahead.
