5 GSM Sunset 2 Years Away an incredible challenge facing the alarm industry: on Jan 1, 2017, AT&T will entirely shutdown their 2G GSM/GPRS cellular network.. But this shutdown has already begun! This requires replacing an estimated 4 to 5 million GSM alarm devices before 2G GSM service is removed and d the deadline dli is now 2 ½ years away! Many alarm companies have started dealing with the replacement, but others have not yet begun to address this issue. (c) L.T.Fiore, Inc. 5 (c) L.T.Fiore, Inc. 6 (c) L.T.Fiore, Inc. 3
