EOL Blades - Blended Support
TeamKCI Blended Cisco® Support
** Update- October 31, 2015 ** Cisco® has announced End-of-Life for the MDS 9513 Chassis. (See EOL Notice).
Cisco® 9513 MDS director chassis are not End-of-Life (EOL) though many of the blades in them are, and some 9513 port blades have reached End-of-Support. Many Cisco® customers will have MDS 9513 director chassis that are eligible for maintenance under Cisco® SMARTnet® program, while the blades inside these directors are not supported. The dilemma for most customers is making sure that both the MDS 9513 chassis and the port blades are covered.
We encourage our customers with eligible 9513 MDS directors to keep them under SMARTnet® while at the same time putting their MDS port blades not eligible for SMARTnet® under TeamKCI support. The chassis and corresponding software and firmware will be covered under SMARTnet®. TeamKCI covers all the blades that Cisco® no longer covers. We maintain the blades; Cisco® maintains the chassis while you enjoy the benefits. We offer NBD parts or guaranteed 4-hour onsite response, whichever you prefer. Since we do not maintain the chassis, the OS, or the firmware, your Cisco® MDS 9513 will remain under Cisco® SMARTnet® support.
The TeamKCI Blended Cisco® Support program is the perfect alternative to taking the risk that part of your Cisco® 9513 is not covered. And our blended support program is priced well below original Cisco® manufacturer’s pricing.
One fifteen minute call with one of our specialists will make you a believer. Don’t delay. Let us know when you are available and we’ll show you how to keep your MDS 9513 director fully covered.
