What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL CISCO MDS 9148 48-PORT FC-8GB SWITCH (32-ACTIVE)

As a If your products are considered End-of-Life (EoL) or End-of-Service-Life (EoSL), you may feel like you’re out of options. It can seem like you have to get a new product if you want any support at all, which can be expensive and result in losing the value of your old hardware. If you keep your equipment, you’ll have to go without help from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). 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 MDS 9148 48-PORT FC-8GB SWITCH (32-ACTIVE)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean that the product becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and it can be convenient to keep using it if it works for your company. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for a longer time by using TPM.
If you don’t have much extra money to spend on new hardware, and your old hardware is still working well, you can use TPM to help you. This will mean that you can upgrade at your own pace, when you’re ready. You can plan for the transition and make sure you have the money saved up before buying new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to the original manufacturer’s parts. In this case, you may need to find less-than-reliable manufacturers to get the parts you need. However, working with TPM will give you access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians performing the repairs will be experts in this 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 if you work with a TPM company. They offer similar skills at a much lower price. Plus, TPM companies often include more services than OEMs do. And you can push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM. Although you will still need to upgrade at some point, using a TPM can help delay that cost.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. TPMs might be able to fix a problem quickly so there is little downtime or offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also combine different types of support if it fits your company better.
