Is Your Technology Ready for 3G Sunsetting?

By December 20, 2019 Blog

Change is not easy. It can be hard for the average person to adapt to – one or multiple – deviations from their everyday routine. Now imagine change for an older senior – not only is it taxing, but it can even be dangerous.

The sunsetting of 3G networks is in motion. Once phased out – certain products and services that cannot accommodate 4G or LTE may become obsolete and not work.

This change is likely to affect a variety of medical devices, such as mobile or cellular-based personal emergency response systems (mPERS or PERS); telehealth equipment; and more. For those with non-compatible PERS products, their equipment will need to be replaced to accommodate the new 4G LTE network. Doing so will help keep PERS users safe and independent whether at home or away from home.

For healthcare organizations, it is important to consider your patients when planning a subscriber-wide equipment 4G PERS or other technology upgrade. Implementing a simple, streamlined approach to swap out old 3G equipment with new equipment for anyone with a current wireless system, can help minimize the impact and confusion. Remember, those patients with one or more chronic conditions may require additional assistance during this process.
