Are Your Systems Ready for the End of 2G Cellular Networks?

The end of 2016 brings with it some really big changes. And, no, we are not talking about  politics here -- so feel free to read on!

Systems that depend on the AT&T 2G Cellular network will find themselves without service when 2017 begins. The situation means that any device which uses the AT&T 2G GSM 850/1900MHz network "will need to upgrade their devices as they will be unable to make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or use data services after 12/31/2016" the company noted in its web site.
One estimate suggests between 10 and 14 million GPS devices, cell phones and tablets will need to be replaced.

Remote Monitoring Systems with 3G Cellular Capability

Enevo has a solution for companies with remote tank monitoring systems that will be affected by the end of AT&T 2G systems. The WE-008L sensor is a wireless tank fill level monitoring device that features state-of-the-art measurement and communication using 3G cellular networks. This provides global coverage thanks to partnerships with hundreds of telecom providers to ensure growth.

Check out this great short video to learn more about Enevo.

The communication capability delivers a wealth of information for those responsible for managing tank levels at several remote locations. The data is available at a glance on any web-enabled device so they can efficiently plan routes to service their tanks and quickly respond to changes in demand. It changes the game for petroleum product distributors or companies with tanks placed in a variety of locations. The sensor and server software are constantly being improved; elivering reliable, world-class technology.

AT&T is providing answers to a lot of questions about the 2G network sunset as well. The reason boils down to the ever increasing reliance on mobile capability. The company notes that mobile data traffic grew 75,000 percent between 2001 and 2006. But that pales by the 150,000 percent increase in traffic on its mobile wireless network from 2007 to 2015. To handle all of that AT&T is changing how it allocates its spectrum in ways that will accommodate a deluge of high speed data created by social networks, smart phones and other wirelessly-connected machines.

We depend on data in our wireless world. Stay ahead of the curve and don't go dark at the 2G "sundown".

Remote Tank Monitoring Made Easy - A Brief Video Explanation

Welcome to the front line of digital solutions for remote tank monitoring! This short video offers a great overview of the Enevo system, which is ideal for petroleum product distributors with multiple locations requiring constant attention.

Husky’s Enevo solution starts at the tank, where robust sensors constantly monitor the tank’s fill level and environment. Simple installation and a five-year battery life mean the fully integrated sensors can be installed and never worried about again. Information is transmitted at regular intervals or during abnormal events such as sudden fluid level changes.

Enevo combines the ease-of-use familiar in consumer products with the reliability of enterprise-grade solutions. System setup is a breeze and requires almost no training, which offers instant value for the end-user. Dispatchers use any web-browser enabled device to get a helicopter-view of operations; fresh status updates, trends, reports, and alerts make incredible delivery efficiencies a reality.
