3G connectivity is known as a bridge technology between the mobile radio standards 2G and 4G/LTE. Compared to 2G, 3G offers greater bandwidth and thus faster data transmission. 3G plays a minor role when it comes to the connection of devices on the Internet of Things. Meanwhile, new radio standards like LTE-M and NB-IoT have become established that are specifically tailored to the needs of IoT use cases. No matter whether you are planning with 3G, LTE-M or NB-IoT, the 1NCE IoT SIM card supports all cellular mobile radio standards.

Now and in the near future network operators switch off 3G frequencies to have them available for future-driven technologies like 5G. This is known as Shutdown, Sunset or Phase Out. 1NCE keeps you updated on where our operators are switching off outdated radio standards. In most cases, your business case won’t be affected by the shutdown. We recommend you to proof if your SIM modules are multi-mode compatible and can work on other mobile radio standards.
Are you struggling with the network abbreviations 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT and LTE-M? Our blog post in the IoT Native Blog gives you an overview of the common mobile radio standards. Among other things, the article provides answers to which aspects should be considered when choosing mobile technology.
Commonly used modems by 1NCE customers support 3G. Mainly in combination with other mobile radio standards (multi-mode compatibility). The 1NCE Developer Hub offers references to hardware specifications. Recipes describe the proper configuration of modules in connection with a 1NCE IoT SIM card, including instructions about proper AT commands.
