Brocade Network Maintenance

Brocade communications systems now a subsidery of Broadcom after its aquisition in November 2016, has a diverse networking portfolio. Various parts of this network portfolio have further been aquired by companies such as Extreme Networks, HCL Technologies and at least three other companies. The fragmented Brocade network picture can make it challenging at times to understand where and who to contact about the network hardware support you may require.  BASE IT network hardware support services can take this headache away. Our consultants have specific focus working with only a handful of networking manufacturers. This allows us to pass much needed information and help to you. 

Supporting Brocade hardware

By offering viable and sustainable alternative service support options to our customers, we are able to assist by providing short interim support, giving a period of time for customers to make informed decisions regarding whether a network hardware refresh project is absolutely necessary.

Alternatively, maintaining and supporting present network End of Life products within an environment while network platform decommissioning is undertaken, is a vital requirement to mitigate any risk of unavailability during a project.

With flexible contract options, a thorough understanding of Brocade network hardware and a wealth of experience, BASE IT have a support package that can be tailored to your specific requirements. Contact us to see if we can provide the assurances you require to explore an alternative maintenance support service.

Asset residual value for Brocade hardware

Our unique Brocade network ARV service could provide you with the potential to tailor a cost neutral maintenance agreement for Brocade network hardware that is now either post warranty, End of Life or End of Service Life (EOL / EOSL). Our service enables customers with Brocade network hardware in various  stages of a lifecycle program to place extended maintenance support, irrespective whether 3,6,9 or even 12 months of support is required, effectively creating a cost neutral solution.

We enable a cost neutral maintenance solution to be delivered through the residual value in your Brocade network hardware that we would remove at the end of the agreed maintenance support term. Services for secure decommissioning and removal in line with internal compliance requirements will also form part of the hardware lifecycle services program discussion. 

If you have no requirement for a support service, our ARV service can still benefit you. We can provide you with a residual value quotation for your IT server, storage and network hardware and discuss the decommissioning and data erasure process, enabling you to obtain a far greater return on your initial capital investment. There is no obligation in obtaining an ARV quotation, but it allows you to explore if this service could be viable and beneficial for you.
