Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM SMC 26-PORT 10/100/1000 SWITCH

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot 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 big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
You may not have enough money to upgrade your hardware right now. You also don’t want to be rushed into a decision. You can keep using your old hardware with the help of TPM. When you’re ready, you can upgrade and prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order first.
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 trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your hardware are experts in their field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
If you want to avoid high prices for post-EoL OEM services, you can work with a TPM company. They have lower prices and a similar skill set. Plus, the scope of work with TPM may be more expansive or personalized than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
While an OEM specializes in their equipment, TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to fix the problem so that there is little downtime or offer a wider range of services that are better for you. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
