End of Life (EOL) notices can send shivers down the spines of people running companies with huge technological demands. This is because when something reaches EOL, the company providing the technology will no longer offer support within 1-5 years of declaring something at EOL.
EOL can mean disaster for companies that utilize routers and switches on a daily basis. One organization that comes to mind is the US Air Force, scrambling to replace all their old Cisco™ servers so they can be up to date.
If an organization as large as the US Air Force struggles with this, it certainly is conceivable that smaller businesses shudder at the thought of major EOL decisions.
Servicing Yourself Beyond EOL
There is comfort in the future for companies suffering from EOL declarations. Even though Cisco™ may not offer support or service for your products after an allotted time, there are other solutions.
- Explore alternative companies for replacement and maintenance: There are suppliers out there that sympathize with companies that simply can’t afford the expenditure of 100% gutting and replacing thier routers and switches. Cisco SMARTnet is not the only options. IT vendors like US Logic can help, when huge hardware conglomerates aren’t there to.
- Stock up on parts: In the event of EOL, it could be in a business’s best interest to purchase spares, so that when one dies, you don’t have to jump through hoops to get replacements.
These offer solutions for dilemmas involving EOL decisions. With hacking and identity theft at all-time highs, it is integral to keep software and hardware up-to-date, protected and maintained.
