The replacement for the MPS1000 WAN/LAN Communications Server is the Ventnor Communications Server. The Ventnor platform is designed with the latest technology, ensuring future support and improved performance, and is engineered to be 100% compatible with the existing MPS1000. It utilizes the same MPS Software, and the same Hydra cables, as the MPS1000. The API is unchanged and there should be no reason to change any application that works with a current MPS1000. Ventnor samples will be available in the 3rd quarter 2016 with production scheduled for the 4th quarter 2016.
