How to save 25% on new OEM network equipment
Many companies specify new OEM networking equipment for their IT network system build-outs and upgrades. Employing new OEM equipment guarantees that a system is state-of-the art, featuring the latest and greatest advancements in both hardware and software technology, and that the system maximizes its functionality, longevity, and serviceability in the field.
Purchasing new OEM equipment is costly. For instance, a brand new Cisco switch stack of C9300-48UXM’s, complete with 40G uplinks, power, and optics, can cost north of $100,000. Adding maintenance to the equipment can increase the price by another $20,000 and allows for equipment upkeep for an additional 3 years.
While company specifications require installing new OEM networking equipment including servers, switches, security appliances, routers, and IP telephony, OEM peripherals are cited but typically not required to maintain the system’s warranty or OEM maintenance agreement. By purchasing third-party peripherals such as optical transceivers, a company still meets the specified requirement for OEM hardware, but the cost-savings is tremendous. This allows significant funding to be directed to other areas in the company. The same brand new Cisco switch stack utilizing third-party optical transceivers can easily reduce the cost by $25,000,
Third-party fiber optic and copper transceivers are manufactured by the same companies that make OEM transceivers. Third-party transceivers provide the same functionality as those manufactured by the OEMs and allow for seamless integration and scalability with OEM hardware.
