What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO CATALYST 3850 24-PORT GBE POE IP BASE SWITCH

As a If your products are at the end of their life or end of service life, you might feel like you are stuck. You might think that you need to buy new products to continue getting support, but this can be expensive and it means losing the value of what you already have. If you keep your old equipment, you will have to go without help from the original equipment manufacturer. But how will you deal with technical difficulties or breakdowns? And how can you be confident 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 CISCO CATALYST 3850 24-PORT GBE POE IP BASE SWITCH

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product still has a lot of value. It can still be used if it works for your company. You can keep using it as long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it works in your company’s infrastructure.
You may be reaching the end of the life-span of your hardware, but that doesn’t mean you need to upgrade right away. You can use TPM to help you extend the life of your current hardware. You can take your time to save up for new hardware and prepare for the switch. That way, you won’t feel rushed into a decision and you can buy new equipment when you’re ready.
If you are repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem, since you may have to rely on less-than-reliable manufacturers for parts. Working with TPM can be a better option, since you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians performing the repairs will be experts in the field and may be more familiar with the equipment than in-house techs.
If you want to avoid paying too much for post-EoL OEM services, you can work with a TPM company. TPM companies offer similar skill sets as OEMs but at a much lower price. Plus, the scope of work may be more expansive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. Although an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, using a TPM company can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair in a way that creates less downtime for you or offer more services that can be better for you. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with parts of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
