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 8540 1-PORT OC-12C/STM-4C SMF IR PAM MODULE

If a manufacturer stops providing support for a product, that doesn’t mean the product is 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 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 hardware is reaching its end-of-service-life and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you can choose to continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will allow you to upgrade at your own pace and without being rushed into a decision. You can also prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order beforehand.
If you are working on hardware yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. This can be a problem because the parts may not be as good as the originals. However, if you work with TPM, 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 your equipment than in-house techs.
You don’t have to pay a lot for post-EoL OEM services. TPM companies offer the same skill set as OEMs but for a lot less money. In addition, TPM companies may offer a more expanded or personalized scope of work than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM 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 repair your equipment in a way that causes less downtime or offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
