Dear Valued Customers,
The purpose of this notice is to inform you of the planned end-of-life of our RightWON Satellite products. This notice does not affect the RightWON Plus platform. We are sending you this notice as you are on our list of customers using the RightWON Satellite platform. We made this decision following consultations and considerations of a technological, production and financial nature. We have therefore concluded that this subrange line of products no longer meets our criteria to remain in our catalogue. Below you will find the relevant information regarding the execution of this notice.
- A summary table of key dates
- A list of affected products
Please know that we did not take this decision lightly and are determined to work hand in hand with our customers and partners to minimize the impacts on their operations.
Rest assured that all products already with our customers and/or in use can continue to be used as planned.
Should you have any questions or wishes to discuss this notice, we invite you to contact us directly here. The RightWON Plus hardware could potentially fit your project’s requirements as an alternative solution, please enquire.
