Xbee 868 pro - EOL in Progress - which alternatives for long range?

I read here (http://www.digi.com/products/wireless-wired-embedded-solutions/zigbee-rf-modules/point-multipoint-rfmodules/xbee-pro-868) that the product is going out production.
Which alternatives on the same frequency band are suggested?
How long will xbee pro 868 be kept on market?

The best alternative would be the 868LP from Digi 868LP Webpage

For more information on the EOL contact your distributor or Digi Account manager.
