The 3G sunset is near, and that means that fleets need to talk with their telematics providers to ensure their devices are 4G LTE capable. If you aren’t, you’ll have to replace the devices in your trucks. Oftentimes, it’s a simple plug and play device swap, but the process can vary by telematics service provider.
It’s worth the time and effort, because as we just saw, the last thing you need is to lose connectivity to your trucks. This is doubly important since the 2019 ELD Mandate, as your telematics devices could enable your ELDs and if you lose connectivity, then you’re facing potential fines associated with ELD non-compliance and lack of reporting functions.
For more on why you need to act on the upcoming 3G sunset, watch the video above for further telematics insight and advice from Noregon’s Scott Bolt, vice president of product management.
