CDMA Makes the Transition from 2G GSM a Breeze - and the Future of GPS Bright

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 24 June 2014 Release date- 23062014 - CDMA Makes the Transition from 2G GSM a Breeze - and the Future of GPS Bright.

As 2G GSM wireless technology faces an eventual sunset, now is the time to embrace the more advanced wireless technology including 3G, 4G, and 4G LTE. In order to do this, many users of machine-to-machine solutions, include GPS tracking devices, are turning to next-generation CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) - and for good reason.

Spireon, Inc., the leading provider of M2M mobile resource management solutions, has been working closely with major carriers to develop a solution to help customers migrate to the newest wireless technologies with minimal disruption to their business operations or bottom line. After carefully assessing the available technologies, we determined that CDMA technology offers the smartest choice for migrating from 2G GSM to newer networks that offer bigger bandwidth and higher data speeds.

CDMA Has You Covered - Now and in the Future Spireon is helping companies take a proactive approach to the eventual 2G GSM sunset by developing a migration strategy that minimizes impact on business. CDMA is a critical component of that strategy, and is now available with all of Spireon's Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solutions, powered by our multiple award-winning NSpire M2M Business Intelligence Platform.

Adopted by five of the seven top carriers in the U.S., CDMA uses a spread spectrum technique developed by the military to enhance security. So the data captured by the GPS device is encrypted and encoded before it's transmitted via multiple different channels over the CDMA network, then recombined into its original form before it's served up to you.

So why did Spireon choose to integrate CDMA technology into our solutions? CDMA offers wider coverage, more reliable connections, faster network access, lower power consumption, and more accurate GPS positioning data. What's more, GPS tracking devices that run on CDMA will migrate to 3G, 4G and 4G LTE networks seamlessly, making CDMA the right choice for customers wanting a long-term GPS collateral management solution and a smart investment for the future.

Superior Advantages for MRM Customers CDMA comes with the widest coverage available in the U.S. and Canada, higher security, and ultra-reliable connections, which means you'll stay linked to your assets in real time, 24/7 - no dropped connections, even in rural areas. It also delivers faster network access so you'll have access to the critical mobile resource data you need, when you need it. In addition, CDMA offers more accurate location data - another plus for tracking and quickly locating vehicles - and has lower power requirements.

Bottom line: with Spireon's CDMA solutions, customers stay connected to their mobile resources and assets with greater reliability, no matter where those assets travel, and get faster access to their mobile resource data than ever before.

Make the 2G GSM Sunset a Breeze Instead of a Burden There are plenty of reasons to make the move to CDMA sooner rather than later. The sophisticated business applications of today and tomorrow demand faster data speeds and bigger bandwidth to deliver the high level of service we've come to expect from our mobile devices, and that includes vehicle tracking devices.

Start preparing for the 2G GSM sunset now by investing in a mobile resource management system that embraces the latest wireless technologies - and know that Spireon is here to help make the transition as simple and easy as possible.
