To ensure fleets are ready for the industry’s transition away from 3G connectivity, Road Ready has come out with a telematics system optimized for today’s 4G networks and designed to operate on 5G networks as well.
Fleets equipped with the Road Ready 5G Ready telematics systems will be able to operate their systems continuously without worrying about downtime caused by the next network upgrade, Road Ready officials said in a press release.
The trucking industry currently operates on 3G technology, which all major mobile carriers are transitioning away from in 2022.
Road Ready’s new system was designed to help fleets “future-proof” trailers from near- and long-term changes to mobile networks. A typical on-highway trucking fleet operates its trailers for around 15 years, thus the need to start protecting for 5G continuity now, Road Ready officials said.
