The 3G Network Is Shutting Down: Here's a Better Way to Transmit ECGs


Are you ready for the 3G network shutdown? 

By the end of 2020 (yes, that’s in just a few WEEKS!), Verizon is shutting down their 3G network—with other providers following suit in the near future. This means that any 3G modem you use for ECG transmission will need to be upgraded. 

But wait — why pay to upgrade hardware that will soon be obsolete again anyway? Why pay to transmit the ECG at all? 

ecgamb-123445-edited-190466-editedIt’s time to consider switching to a more flexible and scalable solution for ECG transmission. Pulsara ONE is a mobile telehealth and communication platform that can transmit your ECGs — and so much more — for free. Pulsara ONE leverages mobile technology to seamlessly send ECGs between all members of the care team. It’s both intuitive and easy to use. And, you and your receiving hospitals can sign up in seconds. 

Wait a second. HOW exactly can Pulsara replace your ECG transmission modem? 

We’re glad you asked. 

Using any smartphone or tablet, Pulsara’s HIPAA-compliant platform allows you to upload images and send them to the hospital instantly. We integrate with ECG monitors like Philips and ZOLL, but if you don’t have those, don’t sweat. You can send an image of any ECG from any monitor, with just a tap. 

The best part? As soon as the hospital has received the ECG, you’ll get instant confirmation on Pulsara. No guesswork here.

Watch Pulsara’s integration with ZOLL monitors in action:


Using our mobile platform to transmit ECGs will save you thousands of dollars every year. Not to mention, you won’t have to worry about paying for another new modem when 4G is no longer supported. 

As we close in on the final few weeks until the 3G network shutdown, time is of the essence. If you still need to upgrade or replace your 3G modems for ECG transmission, we’re here to help. 

You can sign up for Pulsara ONE in minutes. Save your resources for other high-priority needs. We’ve got you covered.
