Why 3G GPS tracking is better than 2G
Perhaps as many of you may already know, all 3 telcos in Singapore, M1, Singtel and Starhub, will shut down the 2G network in Singapore from April 1st, 2017.
This means that the mobile operators will stop providing 2G voice, messaging and data services. Faster, more advanced 3G and 4G services will be catered to satisfy consumers’ increased demand for mobile data and faster access speeds. You can read more about the closure of 2G here.
Probably you were wondering how this change will affect your Fleet Management systems that have been using 2G GPS tracking devices till now. As 2G network will no longer be available in Singapore from 1st of April, 2G GPS tracking devices will not be supported as well. Thus, here in LogisFleet to make this transition as easy as possible we are already providing our customers with the latest and most advanced 3G GPS devices made in Europe. Good news are that 3G network and devices have a big advantage over 2G technology.
3G network – faster, better
The speed of data transmission in a device using 2G network is less than 50,000 bits per second (reported by Engineers Garage). And the speed of 3G network is over 4 million bits per second. Thus, if your business is using 2G GPS tracking devices you are missing millions of data per second. With 3G technology you can receive data faster and track your fleets more accurately.
Why 3G GPS tracking device is better than 2G?
The most important difference between 2G and 3G GPS devices is the speed of signal. Having the fastest data can be helpful for improving your fleet management efficiency and making sure you can respond fast in critical situations. The speed of network may affect these features of FleetManager:
