What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO CATALYST 3550 12-PORT ETHERNET SWITCH

As a If your products are End-of-Life or End-of-Support, you might feel like you have to get a new product. But that’s not the only option. You can also keep your old product and continue using it without support from the manufacturer. However, this means that you’ll have to solve any technical problems yourself and deal with any updates or changes on your own. You also won’t be able to rely on the manufacturer for help if something goes wrong with your product in the future. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for CISCO CATALYST 3550 12-PORT ETHERNET SWITCH

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product is not useless. It still has a lot of value, and it can be convenient to keep using it if it works for your company. 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 you don’t want to rush into a decision about getting new hardware, you can continue to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will let you upgrade when you’re ready, which will give you time to prepare for the transition and get your finances in order.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to parts from the original manufacturer. This can be a problem because the parts may not be compatible with your equipment. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work 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. TPM companies offer similar services for much lower prices. They can do the same job as OEMs, but you might get more services included and you can push back the cost of new equipment. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their own equipment. However, TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. They might be able to repair equipment in a way that causes as little downtime as possible. Additionally, some TPMs offer more comprehensive services that can provide a better deal for your business. For example, NorthSmart lets you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business model best.
