Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM 48-PORT FC-4GB SWITCH (CISCO MDS 9148)

If a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has value, and it can be useful if it works for your company. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using it for a longer time 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, and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order. When you’re ready, you can purchase new equipment without feeling rushed.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. This can be a problem because the quality of the parts may not be as good. You can solve this problem by working with TPM. With TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work 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 have much lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. They can get the job done without charging a premium.
OEMs specialize in making equipment, while TPM programs focus on the needs of a company. A TPM program may be able to fix a problem quickly with minimal downtime, or offer more comprehensive services that are better for your business. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model that includes some aspects of OEM and TPM support.
