From time to time, Mobile Network Operators decide to discontinue certain radio standards such as 2G and/or 3G to pave the way for more recent standards. Since 1NCE connectivity services rely on their roaming partners for local radio coverage, both the coverage itself and the radio standards available locally are affected by local shutdowns. In the 1NCE Developer Hub, the list of upcoming 2G/3G network discontinuations provides information of upcoming changes in 1NCE coverage.
The 1NCE network combines the benefits of a MVNO with the advantages of a Tier-1-IoT-Carrier. Based on a strong partnership with Deutsche Telekom, we can offer direct access to Radio Access Networks of Tier-1-operators and guarantee long-term stability and security for our customers. Furthermore, the cooperation with Amazon Web Services facilitates us to develop a unique IoT software, so that customers can integrate cellular IoT connectivty into their solutions faster with plug & play functionalities.
