Announcement of discontinuation PTV xServer 1.14 and add-ons

We would like to let you know that PTV GROUP will be discontinuing the PTV xServer version 1.14 and various versions of add-ons (as listed below) on 01/04/2015. From then onwards, we will no longer provide updates and support for these versions. Please notice that new versions are ready for download at the Customer Area (login is required).

Why are the products being phased out?

The PTV xServer development components are constantly being enhanced. Many new and improved functions have been integrated at the request of our customers. In addition, you will have noticed that a maintenance contract on the current versions pays off, as it integrates extended functions. It also guarantees that you remain up-to-date – a basic prerequisite for day-to-day operations. PTV Group is therefore meeting the growing requirements of its clients. On the other hand, costs arise from supporting older software versions. For this reason, PTV Group, like other software providers, has to limit the number of software versions available. Our resources will be redirected into further improving the PTV xServer. The current software solutions therefore create the perfect conditions for your business applications.

Amendment: Dynamic Traffic Information of HERE (Poland, Norway)

PTVs provider for Dynamic Traffic Information HERE (formerly NAVTEQ) informed us in very short time frame that they will change the Traffic Feed for POL and NOR. They will discontinue the current feeds for these countries 1st of January 2014. This change will be effective 30th  December at PTVs traffic platforms. The new feed for POL will deliver enhanced Dynamic Traffic Information. But for NOR, the new feed will first contain slow traffic information only. However, we expect to get editorial messages like road works or road blocks in the messages back in the feed.
