Spirent Positioning Technology Products: End of Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise support and the introduction of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021.

End of support for Microsoft Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise, and pathway for transition to Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021 (LTSC 2021).  

As you will be aware, Microsoft Corporation's current Operating System (OS) is Windows 11 (Win 11).  Spirent Positioning Technology (PT) has completed an extensive validation and assessment programme for our Positioning Application products. 

To minimise disruption and facilitate GSS9000 and GSS7000 platform Roadmap activities in the medium to long term, Spirent PT have chosen LTSC 2021 as our OS going forward.  This in turn means that we do not support upgrading our systems to Win 11.

From 1st October 2023 all new orders for GSS9000 platforms and GSS7000 platforms, will be shipped with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021 as the installed OS. 
  • Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021 will remain supported by Microsoft until 13th January 2032. 

For currently fielded simulation systems, with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit or Windows 10 IoT Enterprise:
  • Supported by Microsoft until 14th October 2025. 

We will continue to validate PosApp releases and other related software, with all currently deployed OS, until further notice.
