What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO CATALYST 8540 MSR 16-PORT OC-3 MMF LINE CARD

As a If your hardware is considered “End of Life” or “End of Support”, it can seem like you have to buy new hardware to keep getting support. This can be expensive and you might lose the value of your old hardware. If you keep your old hardware, you will not have support from the original manufacturer. But this means that you will have to solve any technical problems yourself and you cannot be sure that your old hardware will work with new software, technology, or security concerns. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for CISCO CATALYST 8540 MSR 16-PORT OC-3 MMF LINE CARD

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product is not useless. It still has a lot of its value, and if it works for your company, it is good to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it works with your company’s systems, you can keep using the product for a while by using TPM.
If your hardware is about to reach its end-of-service-life and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you don’t need to worry. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. That way, you can choose when to upgrade based on your own schedule and finances. You’ll be able to prepare for the transition before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing the hardware yourself, you might not have access to the original parts. This can be a problem because the replacements might not be trustworthy. But if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that work well with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are performing the repairs will be 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 offer similar skill sets as OEMs, but at much lower prices. In addition, the work that is 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 their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that creates less downtime for you or offer more services that work better for you. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some of the features of OEM and TPM support if that works better for your business.
