Our structured approach to network hardware management implements an asset-based approach that maximizes performance and cost efficiencies.
By understanding how much risk your organization is currently facing as a result of having outdated networking hardware and how much (if any) would be reduced by the investment, you have to determine if and when outdated networking equipment should be replaced. At what point in a piece of networking hardware’s lifecycle should your networking hardware be updated?
Stay ahead of the curve with Network Hardware Lifecycle Management
From time to time, vendors may find it necessary to discontinue products and services for a number of reasons, including technology innovations leading to product enhancements and increased functionality, changes in market demand for the product, or obsolescence of components used to build the product.
IT and Network Lifecycle Management is not just about regular refreshes, analyzing End of Life for hardware and monitoring End of Support. A key element is about predicting the end of your networking hardware’s productive lifecycle, and getting ahead of the curve.
A proper analysis and effective planning enables you to save costs and valuable resources, while cutting down on the time you need to care for networking hardware that are past their prime. The recommended networking hardware refresh cycle is no more than 5 years. Waiting that long however could still cost you more in the long run. When networking hardware passes the 3-year mark, switches, routers and other networking equipment could begin to degrade. Costs of service calls associated with each asset could turn out to become more costly than effectively planning their retirement.
