The popular Cisco ISR G1 Series EOS is October 31, 2016
In 2011, when Cisco announced its ISR G1 End of Life (EoL) and eventual End of Support (EOS) at the end of 2016, most system engineers didn’t worry too much about the eventual need to source affordable, top-quality third-party maintenance and repair coverage.
But suddenly we’re looking 2016 square in the face and the ISR G1 EOS is approaching quickly.
It’s time to mobilize.
During the past few months, my department has seen a significant increase in orders to set-up maintenance and repair service level agreements (SLA) for our existing clients, specifically for Cisco’s ISR G1 Series which includes these seven service router models:
No New Software or Hardware Support Will be Available for the Cisco 1841, 2801, 2811, 2821, 2851, 3825 or 3845
Since Cisco is washing their hands of the ISR G1 (first generation) Series after October 31, 2016, their maintenance program will no longer offer any hardware or software support, leaving those customers who still have this equipment deployed without coverage in the event of an outage.
This is why now is the time to secure your third party service level agreement with a tried-and-true hardware support expert who specializes in Cisco EOS and EoL products, offering technical support and affordable next business day (NBD) equipment delivery, as needed.
