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

As a If your products are End-of-Life or End-of-Support, you might feel like you have no choice but to get new products. This can be expensive and you might lose the value of your old hardware. If you keep your equipment, you won’t get support from the OEM. But if something goes wrong with your equipment, it will be difficult to fix it and you won’t be sure that it will work with new software or technology. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for CISCO MDS 9148 48-PORT FC-8GB SWITCH

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has most 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.
Maybe your hardware is going to reach its end-of-service-life soon, but your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades right now. You have your own business to run and you don’t want to be rushed into a decision about new hardware. By continuing to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM, you can choose when you’re ready to upgrade. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you might not be able to get OEM parts. This can be a problem because non-OEM parts may not work with your equipment. A better option might be to work with TPM. TPM has access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs are experts in this field and may know more about your equipment than in-house techs.
You can avoid paying high prices for 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 scope of work offered by TPM companies 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 are experts in equipment, but TPM programs can offer more services that are specific to your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair in a way that causes as little downtime as possible, or offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with some aspects of OEM and TPM support if that is what fits your business.
