Back in September Verizon announced the sunset of their CDMA (2G and 3G cellular) networks. While this may be a concern if you have a device using this network don't sweat it, we've got you covered.

Here's the important info you need to know about the Verizon announcement:

  • Shut down date for Verizon''s CDMA network: December 31, 2019
  • Equipment includes: 1xRTT-only, 1xEVDO-only, both 1xRTT and 1xEVDO, and/or any combination of 1xRTT and 1xEVDO with other radio access technologies not including LTE
  • Verizon will stop accepting new OD CDMA-only equipment for certification post December 31, 2016
  • CDMA-only equipment currently registered in device certification shall continue through the process
  • All CDMA-certified equipment will have an expiration date of December 31, 2019 or 3 years from the date of certification whichever is reached sooner
  • Maintenance releases submitted for certified CDMA equipment post December 31, 2016 will have an expiration date of December 31, 2019


Symmetry has LTE Cat-1 modules, and we'll eventually have Cat-M1 modules, which can upgrade any CDMA devices. We also carry Verizon certified LTE modules which are ready to go. We'd also like to share this 2G sunset plan from our partners at Telit. It offers some great suggestions for the upcoming sunset.
