Industrial IoT Spotlight

Nov 7, 2022

Our guest this week was Martin Whitlock, CTO of Telenor IoT. Telenor IoT is a world-leading provider of managed IoT connectivity for cloud services that enable cost-effectively building and operating both large and small-scale IoT solutions.


In this talk, we discussed the impacts of 2G and 3G sunsetting on IoT device manufacturers, owners and operators. We also explored how companies can minimize the effect of 2G and 3G phase-outs on their customers and how they can future-proof devices currently in design and production.

 Key Questions:

  • What does it mean to sunset a communications technology?
  • What are the practical implications of the 2G and 3G sunsets for IoT device manufacturers?
  • How do existing products need to be modified to maintain functionality after the infrastructure sunsets are implemented?
  • How will functionality be impacted for systems that have both cloud and embedded/edge capabilities?
