2G SUNSET IN USA IS JUST DAYS AWAY: ACT NOW, AND SAVE

On January 1st, AT&T will shut down its 2G network in the US* and other telecommunications carriers are likely to also end 2G coverage in the near future.

That means it’s time to say goodbye to 2G. US dealers should be taking action now to safeguard their customers’ connectivity.

Are you ready?

Once 2G coverage is gone, 2G-connected security systems will lose the ability to communicate alerts and other messages to central monitoring stations or owners.

Dealers who want to ensure continued connectivity for their customers must switch the 2G communicators in installed systems to 3G. In addition to preserving essential communications for their customers, taking action now will help dealers avoid a rush of frantic urgent service calls right after the New Year.

Upgrade to 3G – And save with special offers from DSC

To help dealers migrate any remaining 2G installations to 3G, DSC is offering a special 3G upgrade promotion for US dealers that includes immediate savings** and an easy upgrade process. Find out more by clicking here.
