MaxxCAT went through lengths to be sure recent customers would not have to worry about being on older hardware.

"We know how it feels to purchase your hardware and a week later the company announces something new," said Burt LeFay, hardware manager for MaxxCAT. "We began testing the new hardware several months ago and developed a special release of our earlier OS to work with the new hardware. That way we could begin shipping the new hardware while we finalized the latest OS."

Customers who have purchased their appliance recently have received the new hardware and can contact MaxxCAT support to schedule an update to the new OS.
