What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO CATALYST C3850 48-PORT GBE POE SWITCH

As a If your products are considered End-of-Life or End-of-Service, you might feel like you have to get a new product to keep getting support. This can be expensive and you might lose the value of your old hardware. If you keep your equipment, you will have to go without OEM support. But this means that you will have to deal with any technical difficulties or breakdowns on your own. You also won’t be able to rely on the manufacturer for updates or support as new software, technology and security concerns come up. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for CISCO CATALYST C3850 48-PORT GBE POE SWITCH

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has some of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is good to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or with how it works in your company’s infrastructure, you can use it for a longer time by using TPM.
If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on new hardware, you don’t need to worry. You can continue using your old hardware with the help of TPM. This will give you time to save up and make a decision when you’re ready. You can also prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order.
If you are doing the repairs yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. You might have to get parts from less-than-trustworthy manufacturers. But if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be doing the repairs are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You can avoid the high prices for post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies have lower prices and a similar skill set. They can do the job without charging a premium.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. They might be able to repair your equipment in a way that creates as little downtime as possible or offer more encompassing services that provide better value. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
