Kickoff
last generation technology / technology of the last generation
Explanation:
you can say it just like that.
It is common place to speak of last/next/3rd etc generation.
For example 3G Technology means 3rd Generation Technology and it applies to the newest technology of UMTS terminals (mobile phones).
You can also take a look at a couple of links:

I have recently done a telecommunications translation where I used this terminology frequently and it was deemed as correct by the contractor.


hope it helps.

disagree  Lisa Mann: It's latest generation, not last. The last generation is the one before this one. The latest is the most recent.

last generation technology


Explanation:
Thought you'd like to know how the term "last generation technology" is used. Essentially, it means technology that has already been developed and is now in use, as opposed to "next generation technology," or "cutting edge" technology, which is still being developed.

Here is an article discussing and contrasting the two concepts:

www.ildf.org/reference.html

And here are a bunch of sites where the English and Spanish terms appear jointly (just to reassure you that this is the right translation). I'm pasting in a few, below, and giving you the URL:
