Turn off 2G signal, upgrade 4G LTE: The sprint race of logistics and transportation companies - Advices from expert

AuthorTrần Thanh Phương

Transport businesses are racing to upgrade journey monitoring equipment from 2G, 3G to 4G. Advice from expert to choose an optimal 4G positioning device that meets optimal standards.

According to Vietnam's Telecommunications Law, the country plans to discontinue 2G technology by September 2024, with a phase-out of 3G expected in the following years. Currently, there are still about 24 million 2G subscriptions among a total of 130 million mobile subscriptions in Vietnam. The shutdown of the 2G network will have a significant societal impact. In the transportation sector alone, nearly 1 million vehicles equipped with 2G tracking devices face the risk of becoming inoperative. Many transport business owners are concerned about how to efficiently upgrade their tracking devices from 2G to 4G, especially given that the average cost is about 1.5 to 2 million VND per device, totaling potentially up to 2 trillion VND for 1 million devices. The 2G shutdown will require a substantial budget for businesses and transport units to upgrade to 4G, particularly in a challenging economic environment.

The necessity of the 2G shutdown and transition to 4G is clear. Many companies now offer 4G tracking devices on the market. Mr. Tran Thanh Phuong, an expert with over ten years of experience in standards and certification, offers guidance on choosing compliant, cost-effective 4G tracking devices.


Upgrading from 2G to 4G - Driving the nation's digital transformation

Bach Khoa GPS: Currently, the market offers both imported and domestically produced 4G black box. Which type do you believe is better for consumers?

Expert Tran Thanh Phuong: The certification process for imported tracking devices follows batch certification as per QCVN 31:2014/BGTVT by the Ministry of Transport. Import companies must test and certify each batch, making the cost per GPS device relatively high. Moreover, using imported tracking devices carries the risk of business secrets being exposed as the devices send data to servers abroad. Currently, domestic manufacturers like Bach Khoa GPS have full control over their technology from research and development to production, making "Made in Vietnam" devices a more economically viable and secure option for both businesses and consumers.
