The 2G (GSM) Network Shutdown
Last year Telstra announced that the GSM mobile network will be shut down 1st December 2016, which will affect transport operators that utilise the 2G network for telematics devices in vehicles.
Telstra notified customers via mail, but we’re finding that the news hasn’t necessarily filtered through to Transport Operators managing fleets.
In short, if your company is with Telstra and uses any GPS telematics or mobile enterprise devices in the field that rely on the GSM network, they should be replaced with devices compatible with the 3G or LTE (4G) network.
Upgrading to the 3G and/or LTE (4G) mobile networks will open up a range of options for transport operators that want to benefit from the latest in technology. Rapid mobile data communications with the new networks will deliver data quicker and allow newer capabilities to become available.
3G/LTE (4G) mobile devices can provide real time: Fatigue Management and EWD Timesheets Maintenance Management (Fault Creation, Review and Corrective Action Close Out)
Job Updates, Deliveries and Multi Image POD (Barcodes and NFC Tags) Mass Management.
How can Vertical Matters help?
If your company is faced with the challenge of transitioning from the 2G (GSM) mobile network, we can help you replace your GPS Telematics and any mobile enterprise devices and adopt best practices by going paperless. Our Cloud-based solutions allows access to compliance, jobs and tracking systems using web browsers and mobile applications within an integrated solution.

Chain of Responsibility (COR)
The Vertical Matters solution gives managers the peace of mind that they are satisfying their CoR obligations in relation to Speed management of their fleets. Our system provides corrective actionable alerts and reports for posted speed zones and customer selected speed settings. Speed monitoring utilises 5 second GPS speed samples and is validated by ECM speed for greater confidence when discussing speed breaches with drivers. Our customers are able to conduct detailed analysis of speed breaches which clearly shows all posted speed signs, GPS and ECM data as well as altitude so a customer can validate a speed breach.
Our Compliance Package delivers a reliable automation of the strict compliance demands of CoR legislation.
What Is Chain-Of-Responsibility?
The chain-of-responsibility means that all parties in the road transport chain - not just drivers - are responsible for unlawful practices in the road transport industry.
The chain -of-responsibility targets:
• Illegal driving
• Illegal working hours
• Exceeding vehicle dimensions
• Poorly restrained loads
Improved compliance with these and other laws will provide a safer industry for workers in the road transport industry and other road users. Driver Fatigue Through the integration of accurate GPS based telematics and web delivered electronic logbooks, any combination of drivers and trucks can be assured of complying with the current and future Fatigue Management regulations for each State. The provision of a special mobile phone provides a readable version of the logbook for jurisdictional officers to review, and a PDF copy can be emailed to any officer or jurisdictional office. Detailed reporting of driver trips across numerous trucks, including jurisdictional stop periods, DC queue wait times and other customisable events can also be provided.
