What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL IBM CNT FC/9000 64-PORT DIRECTOR (MCDATA)

As a If your products are End of Life or End of Service Level, it might feel like you have to get a new product to continue getting support. But that’s not true. You can keep your old products, but you won’t have OEM support. That means you’ll have to deal with technical difficulties and breakdowns on your own, and you can’t be sure that your hardware will work with new software and technology as it comes out. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM CNT FC/9000 64-PORT DIRECTOR (MCDATA)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean the product becomes useless. Most of the product’s value still remains, and if it works for your company, you can keep using it by implementing TPM. As long as there aren’t any major issues with the hardware or how it integrates into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for a longer time.
You may not have enough money to buy new hardware right now. You also don’t want to be rushed into a decision. That’s where TPM comes in. You can keep using your old hardware and upgrade when you’re ready. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new hardware.
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. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to high-quality, trusted parts that will work well with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs will be experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
If you want to avoid paying high prices for post-EoL OEM services, you can work with a TPM company. TPM companies offer similar services at a much lower cost. 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 specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. A good TPM program might be able to repair your equipment in a way that creates as little downtime as possible or offer more encompassing services that can provide a better deal. 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.
