End of Life Equipment

We fully support all End of Life equipment, and recommend you keep it in your infrastructure as long as possible. Here's why:

My Devices Function Perfectly

A portion of our present networking and data hardware infrastructure got an EOL announcement, but we barely ever have issues with their performance.

The Functionality Fits-our-Needs

The devices we have in this EOL announcement fit our needs perfectly. The recommended upgrade has all these functionalities we have no use for.

Upgrading Will Cost How Much?

The recommendations of new devices to replace ours that work perfectly fine, are more than twice as expensive as the hardware I own?

OEM's often create and standardize their own End of Life policy for any device they manufacture and sell. Throughout the networking and data manufacturers, the average lifecycle of any given product is six years. This process does not take into account any of the following about the product: build quality, performance, or cost. These should be the primary driving influences for an OEM to force or suggest customers to replace their equipment.

If your devices are functioning properly and fit your needs, our expert engineers highly recommend not getting rid of them. We can fully support your End of Life devices across all of our listed manufacturers, technologies, sub-technologies, and related software. You can find EOL announcements for the manufacturers we support on their respective websites (except for Dell, which does not formally publish their End of Life information).
