EOL WARNING ON YOUR CISCO SWITCHES AND ROUTERS……WHAT NOW?

EOL WARNING ON YOUR CISCO SWITCHES AND ROUTERS……WHAT NOW?
14/04/2021

Calling all IT service managers and network engineers charged with managing your Company's network infrastructure. You will undoubtedly be budget-conscious when selecting your Network hardware. Many organisations select Cisco as the preferred vendor for switches and routers and find that the hardware does an excellent job. However, after a period of time, it is announced that the equipment which has suited your requirements so well will become End-of-Life (EOL), meaning the vendor will only provide software support a further 1-5 years, yet the hardware support won't be covered. This can force organisations to cut network budgets in important areas in order to procure the latest hardware replacements. Cisco End-of-Life (EOL) isn't the End of the World As an IT service manager or network engineer faced with having EOL Cisco switches or routers in your network, there’s no need to despair. You may be thinking that it will be necessary to completely replace your hardware with the latest switches or routers, but this isn't the case. Despite the fact that Cisco will eventually stop providing support, there are other options for maintaining and supporting EOL equipment cost effectively. The Alternative Way of Supporting EOL Cisco Switches and Routers Not only can your organisation continue using EOL equipment, but you may also find it is much more cost-effective than purchasing new equipment in the long term. Here are a few options to consider for supporting your EOL switches and routers: Alternative maintenance and replacement services: Flux IT Hardware offer a maintenance program that provides services for legacy Cisco products.
