What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL BROCADE 5120 24/40-PORT FC-4GB SWITCH

As a If your products are at the end of their life or end of service life, you may feel like you are stuck. It can seem like you have to get a new product if you want to keep getting support, which can be expensive and mean losing the value of what you already have. If you keep your equipment, you won’t be able to get help from the original equipment manufacturer. But how will you deal with technical difficulties or breakdowns? And how can you be sure that your hardware will work properly as new software, technology and security concerns arise? has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for BROCADE 5120 24/40-PORT FC-4GB SWITCH

Even if a manufacturer doesn’t support a product anymore, it still has a lot of value. If the product works for your company, it is a good idea to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s system, you can keep using the product for a while by using TPM.
If your hardware is reaching its end-of-service life and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you don’t need to feel rushed into a decision. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM and upgrade when you’re ready. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts may not work well with your equipment. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work well with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs will be experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You don’t have to pay a lot for post-EoL OEM services. If you work with a TPM company, you can save money and still get the job done well. TPM companies usually have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. In addition, the scope of work with TPM may be more extensive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by using a TPM company. Although an upgrade will be necessary eventually, using a TPM company can delay it.
TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They can do things like fix your equipment quickly so there is little downtime, or offer a wider range of services that might be better for you. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also mix and match TPM and OEM support if it works better for your business.
