What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO CATALYST 3850 48-PORT 10GBE SWITCH

As a Not following your device’s End-of-Life (EOL) and End-of-Service-Life (EOSL) dates can lead to a situation where you might not have coverage when you need it. This can lead to poor performance, security vulnerabilities, software incompatibilities, and high operating costs. Paying attention to these dates and creating a plan for your EOSL and EOL equipment can help your data center continue to run smoothly, even if you find that your budget can’t cope with expensive upgrades. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for CISCO CATALYST 3850 48-PORT 10GBE SWITCH

If a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean the product suddenly becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or with how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
If your hardware is reaching its end of service life and your company doesn’t have much 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 working on the hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer used. In this case, you might need to find less-than-trustworthy manufacturers to get the parts you need. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be performing the repairs are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. They can do the job without charging a premium. In addition, the scope of work included with TPM may be more expansive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You also get to push back the cost of new equipment. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM can help keep it at bay.
OEMs specialize in making equipment, but TPM programs can focus on what your company needs. They might be able to do a repair that causes little downtime or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you choose only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with some of the features of OEM and TPM support if that works better for your business.
