Technical alternatives SIGMA 3G after 2G/3G sunset
As 2G/3G connectivity will be sunsetting across the world with different timeframes depending on the region (see details in the linked pdf), you will find below the technical alternatives that allow you to continue using your Sigma 3G device(s) after the 2G/3G sunset phase.
Here are 2 options that will allow you keep operating your Sigma 3G devices after the 2G/3G sunset:
Option 1 – Connect the sensor to a wired network through PoE Injector
Connect the Sigma 3G to a cable-connected network with an Ethernet cable. The network should provide a direct internet access to Sigma and have the relevant ports opened (refer to user guide). You can power and connect the device with the use of PoE Injector.
Option 2 – Connect the sensor to a 4G/5G router with a local SIM card
Purchase a 4G/5G router that meets the following conditions:
can connect to the internet (4G/5G and/or Wi-Fi)
has a SIM card slot (any type)
has 1 Ethernet port minimum (if more, several sensors can be connected)
Purchase 4G/5G SIM card (4G or 5G depending on the router you are using) from a local mobile provider
Insert the SIM card into the router
Connect the Sigma 3G device to the new router with an Ethernet cable and a PoE Injector
