Why Transition from CDMA to 4GLTE

According to 4GAmericas.com, the annual global subscription and market share for 4G LTE is forecast to expand from 1.9 billion in December 2017 to 3.6 billion by December 2020. Cellular technology has shifted dramatically through the years from 1G to 2G, to 3G to 4G. Such aggressive changes in cellular technology can seem intimidating.

However, economical and future-centric alarm communication solutions are available through Alula. Transitioning from CDMA to 4G LTE will bring your dealership and customers into a future-focused mindset. This means you can meet the customer demand for high-quality Dual-Path IP and Cellular alarm communications.

Understanding 4G LTE

In March 2008, the ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) instituted standards for 4G connectivity. Any type of 4G service is required to adhere to the specific connection and speed standards set forth in the regulations. According to these standards, mobile devices must have an apex point of 100 megabits per second. These standards were considered extremely high to the real-world when they were first publicized. However, they were designed as an end-point for developers in the technology world. Technology caught up to these bold standards, and improvements have been made to 3G networks so they can now be classified as 4G. Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is the pathway toward achieving 4G speeds. This standard of cellular communication is continually evolving.

The Wave of the Future

CDMA stands for Code Division Multiple Access. CDMA is a network that supports cellular and data transfer. It is used by Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular. Global System for Mobile (GSM) communications is a cellular and data supported network. The GSM network is used by AT&T and T-Mobile, and currently, GSM technology is used by all LTE networks in the US. However, CDMA technology is not current enough or compatible with LTE speeds. SIM cards are used with newer versions of Sprint and Verizon phones so that they also work on the GSM networks. Since many newer mobile devices are not utilizing CDMA technology, you should consider transitioning from this network to 4G LTE.

As a tech-savvy security dealer, you need to provide your customers with cutting-edge and future-centric alarm technology that is compatible with the high speeds of the 4G LTE. According to Fierce Wireless magazine, Verizon confirmed that they plan to close down their CDMA 1X network by Dec. 31, 2019. This is even more of a reason to get ahead of the game and begin transitioning from CDMA to 4G LTE.

Get Ahead of the Game

You can get ahead of the game with the industry-leading alarm communicators from Alula. They use the newest 4G LTE standard from Verizon. These Dual-Path communicators easily connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi (WPS) or an Ethernet connection. They have been pre-activated for compatibility with Verizon’s current network. Your customers will get the highest-caliber technology with Alula devices that are compatible with most current alarm panels. These Dual-Path alarm communicators work with the most up-to-date cellular technology. They provide your customers with the optimal solution for future-centric alarm data transmissions.

If you want to provide your customers with future-centered security solutions that feature cutting-edge technology, then making the transition from CDMA to 4G LTE is vital to the success of your dealership.
