DPL has secured a CDMA extension until December 31st, 2022, on behalf of our customers! (includes both Verizon 3G and 2G)
A Brief History
In May of 2014, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) revised its security guidelines for servers supporting unclassified yet sensitive US security information (thanks Edward Snowden). The update stated that by the beginning of 2015 these servers should be configured to support TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 and that they should no longer support TLS 1.0, SSL 2.0 or SSL 3.0.
They will then proceed to shut down parts of the network in Saskatchewan on June 30, 2017 and then in Ontario, Québec, Fort Nelson British Columbia and in the Atlantic provinces in April of 2018.
In April of 2016 AT&T announced plans for a nation wide shutdown of its 2G networks by December 31, 2016 so it could support its HSPA 3G and LTE-based services. With Verizon also announcing plans to shut down their 2G networks by December 31, 2019 the 2G shutdown is also being referred to as the “2G Sunset”.
Like a lot of us, you’re probably confused about the differences between 2G, 3G, 4G and LTE wireless ATM Modems. And if you’ve ever researched the subject online, there is a good chance you’re even more confused now - or asleep in front of your computer… WAKE UP!
