WP series module/ snap in socket unified footprint

Need recommendation how to unify in layout two below footprints:

WP76XX module footprint as defined here: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/hardware_specs_user_guides/wp-cad-files-swi/

Snap in WP socket as defined here:


My solution was to preserve solder paste for all GND pads of the module that does not exist in socket , despite the solder paste recommendation on page 24 (figure 13) of Sierra snap in socket manual.

Is this acceptable solution?


Did you ever get a reply to this? I’m running into the same issue the solder paste they show for the socket doesn’t seem to match the actual module and is excluding the GND pins.
