Spectrum occasionally announces EOL on our software and hardware products. This is an industry norm and it is done to help protect our customers from outdated software and hardware. Announcements are made one year prior to the EOL date on software. Spectrum also tries to do this with hardware but there are times when some of the components within the hardware have a ninety day to an immediate EOL.
Spectrum occasionally announces EOS on our software products. This is an industry standard and it is done to continue to improve our products. Announcements are made one year prior to the EOS date on the software. EOS typically means that you may need to upgrade your Spectrum software to the latest version to continue to receive support for your existing software.
