Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for BROCADE VDX 6940 24/36-PORT 40GBE R/F SWITCH

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean that the product becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and if it works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can stretch your initial investment and keep the product working longer with TPM.
If your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you can still use your existing hardware with the help of TPM. This will give you time to prepare for the transition and get your finances in order before purchasing new equipment. You can choose when you’re ready to upgrade and don’t have to feel rushed into a decision.
If you are fixing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts as the manufacturer. This can be a problem, because the parts might not work with your equipment. When you work with TPM, you have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your equipment are experts in this field. They may know more about your equipment than the in-house techs do.
You don’t have to pay a lot of money for post-EoL OEM services. Work with a TPM company and you can save money while still getting the work done. TPM companies have skillsets similar to those of OEMs, but they charge less. Plus, with TPM you may get more work done or a more personalized service than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by using a TPM company. Although you will eventually need to upgrade, using a TPM company can help postpone that costly decision.
Some companies specialize in repairing equipment, while others, called Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) programs, can focus on the needs of your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair that causes less downtime or offer more services that are better for your company. Some TPM options let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some aspects of an OEM and TPM support if it fits your business better.
