PRODUCT NOTICE: END OF LIFE : HTPlus Series
Product Affected: HTPlus Series
FreeWave Technologies announces the end-of-life of the HTPlus Series of 900MHz industrial radios. The replacement product for this series is the ZumLink 900 series. FreeWave will provide standard warranties for any new HTPlus units sold. Warranties for existing HTPlus units still under warranty remain valid. FreeWave will also offer full Customer Support for all new and existing HTPlus units and provide best-practices for the migration to new ZumLink 900 Series. Note that the ZumLink and HTPlus Series are not over-the-air compatible.
The ZumLink 900 Series includes ZumBoostTM RF technology, four performance-enhancing algorithms that can be used independently or together to ‘boost’ throughput in the most demanding RF environments. With Adaptive Spectrum Learning, Forward Error Correction, Packet Compression and Packet Aggregation, ZumBoost improves the reliability and throughput of wireless data links. In addition, the ZumLink 900 Series will allow you to future-proof your networks and deploy intelligence at the edge with ZumIQ Application Environment. Contact us to learn more.
FAQ's - END OF LIFE : HTPlus Series
FreeWave Technologies appreciates your business. We have received numerous questions regarding the end-of-life status of the HTPlus Series of products; therefore we would like to provide clarification around the following frequently asked questions:
Migrating to ZumLink DOES NOT require you to “rip and replace” your HTPlus network, nor does it require the purchase of additional devices. To extend an existing network, we recommend a Coexistence strategy. This is where both an HTPlus and a ZumLink network co-exist harmoniously. The ZumLink 900 Series was designed to coexist with features such as Adaptive Spectrum Learning where it “listens before talks” and can communicate in separate areas of the band from the HTPlus. Please review our application note to better understand this strategy.
Please contact your regional sales manager or your channel manager for a ZumLink demonstration.
