Rebranding Statement

On December 17th, 1999, Efficient Networks, Inc. acquired FlowPoint Corporation. As a result of this acquisition, all of the FlowPoint products are being re-branded to be consistent with the Efficient Networks product line. This document will provide you with the information that you need to assist you and your customers through the transition.

Support for FlowPoint Products
Efficient Networks, Inc. will continue to offer Technical Support, Firmware upgrades, and Hardware warranty repairs for FlowPoint branded products for the warranty period purchased by the customer. Specifically this includes the following:

  1. Technical Support
    The Standard Warranty provided with the FlowPoint products offers 90 days of Technical Support. Extended Warranties offer longer support periods. Efficient Networks will continue to support FlowPoint customers with their Technical Support issues while they are in warranty.
  2. Software Patches and Upgrades
    Software patches and upgrades will be made available for a period of one year from the date of discontinuation of the FlowPoint products (see chart below). At that point there will be a final release, and future releases will not be created without special circumstances. Software patches and upgrades for FlowPoint products will include the same improvements to the standard feature set as are provided with the Efficient branded products (for a period of one year). New enhanced features that are available for Efficient-branded products may not be available for FlowPoint-sbranded products.
