The duration of this phase is variable and depends on numerous factors including material availability, Dell SonicWALL and channel inventory and end-user demand. Last Day Order is informational only; products in this phase are active. Dell SonicWALL continues to sell support contracts.

Active Retirement Mode

Products in ARM are removed from all price lists and marketing collateral at this time. Support contracts for products in this phase will remain on price lists and will continue to be available for purchase until the phase has ended. During this time Dell SonicWALL may release a limited number of new features and will issue bug fixes only to the latest version of firmware available for the device. Software/firmware support and hardware warranty are available throughout ARM for products with an active support contract. The duration of this phase is two years beginning one day after the end of Last Day Order.

1-Year Support Last Day Order
