In some cases, the products offered by NAMSA will be transitioned to the equivalent configuration that Crosstex has been offering. For these products, the product codes will change and a product comparison document has been developed to aid in clearly outlining the new product code, the similarities and any differences which may exist between the NAMSA product and the equivalent Crosstex replacement.  Please see below product comparisons.

Please note if there is no comparison for a product code/configuration, it is because the code and configuration will remain the same when transferred to Crosstex. The only change will be the brand changing from NAMSA to Crosstex.
