3G is shutting down

Get on a 4G LTE Network Before It’s Too Late

AT&T and other carriers plan to turn off their 3G network services as they focus on building 5G networks and supporting 4G LTE. This means your IoT devices must be connected to a 4G LTE network to run.

By February 22, 2022, AT&T is sunsetting its 3G network. Other cellular network providers have plans to shut down their 3G networks by the end of 2022.

Monnit recently stopped selling its ALTA® North American 3G Cellular Gateways. So, it’s time to move to an ALTA 4G LTE Cellular Gateway. We’ll help you upgrade before AT&T and other carriers turn off their 3G networks.

Attention ALTA North American 3G Cellular Gateway customers—Please read “The Countdown to the End of 3G Continues” to know which ALTA 4G LTE Cellular Gateway is right for you.

After AT&T’s 3G network shuts down, if you’re an ALTA 3G Cellular Gateway customer, you’ll no longer be able to get valuable data from your ALTA Sensor network.* The Monnit Sales Team is ready to help you roll over your 3G data plans and upgrade to our ALTA 4G LTE Cellular Gateway.

Get on the path to AT&T’s 4G LTE cellular network. Please call and talk to a Monnit Sales Representative today at 801.561.5555 or email the sales team at

*Applies only to ALTA 3G Cellular Gateways in the United States. 3G gateways deployed internationally are not affected.

price increases

Buy Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Before Prices Go Up

Due to unfavorable market conditions and rising costs for everything from sensing components to fuel to inflation, we will increase prices across all products on February 10, 2022.

We’re balancing this act of raising prices in the slightest way possible to maintain high product and service quality. To avoid a higher price, we encourage everyone to save by placing their orders now and before that date.

We value our relationship with you and appreciate your understanding as we navigate the future together. We remain steadfast in offering the best wireless, low-power, and long-range sensors with our innovative gateways and software.

Please feel free to discuss this price increase and how we can help with your remote monitoring plans with your sales representative. See last month’s blog post for more details about global supply chain issues and the price increase.

supply chain issues

Get Ahead of PoE•X and MoWi Sensor Availability

Due to global supply chain issues, the Monnit PoE•X® and MoWi® product lines are experiencing longer than anticipated lead times. Please see our recent blog posts for more details: “Supply Challenges to Monnit PoE•X Product Line” and “Monnit MoWi Wi-Fi Sensors in Short Supply.”

The Monnit Demand Planning Manager (DPM) has an important request of our PoE•X and MoWi Sensor customers. Our DPM recommends contacting your Monnit Sales Representative and sending them your PoE•X and MoWi Sensor 2022 forecasts.

This action will help us better assess our current PoE•X and MoWi Sensor availability balanced with our PoE and Wi-Fi component suppliers’ and global market forecasts. The latest reports say that due to worldwide supply and demand trends, the lead time for new PoE and Wi-Fi component availability is during the fourth quarter of 2022.

Your Monnit Sales Representative can:

  • Review your PoE•X and MoWi Sensor forecasts and current networking plans with you.
  • Help you evaluate a possible transition to our 80+ ALTA Wireless Sensors.

Tech Tip

sensor data logging

Understanding ALTA Sensor Data Logging

Data logging is critical to maintaining the integrity and reliability of your sensor data. The basic processes ALTA Sensors go through to be dependable data loggers are important to understand. This is especially helpful if a sensor loses the connection to its ALTA Gateway for some reason.

  • What does the sensor do with the data it collects while it’s disconnected from the gateway?
  • How much data can the sensor save, and how does it send the data when it reconnects?

Get the answers to these questions and more in this short Monnit Knowledgebase article.
