Telguard launches upgrade for TG-7 series cellular alarm communicators

Sep 19, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Telular Corp. (NASDAQ: WRLS) alarm monitoring division Telguard has introduced the TG-KIT for upgrading all 2G (GSM and GPRS) Telguard TG-7 series communicators to 3G/4G solutions.

With the kit, 2G versions of the TG-7, TG-7A, TG-7F, TG-7FM, TG-7FS and TG-7S can be easily upgraded without having to remove the existing enclosure, antenna or power supply.

Last month AT&T announced December 31, 2016 as the date of the 2G Sunset. Their official announcement started the countdown for dealers to upgrade their current base of installed 2G cellular alarm communicators. The cost to upgrade most commercial intrusion and fire 2G cellular communicators exceeds several hundred dollars. Each upgrade includes the price of new hardware, a complete recertification process and a truck roll. With millions of 2G cellular communicators needing to be replaced, the 2G Sunset can have a devastating financial impact on the commercial security industry.


Telguard's TG-KIT, the industry's first 3G/4G upgrade kit, makes the conversion simple and extremely affordable. In a matter of minutes, an installer simply replaces the 2G circuit board with a new one for 3G/4G networks without disturbing the site's UL certifications. This upgrade increases the longevity of a Telguard cellular unit, ensuring customer retention and protecting a dealer's earned revenue. Activation and service procedures will remain the same as they have been for Telguard's 2G products.
