XSi Network Maintenance & IT Network Support

XSi provides independent IT network support and network maintenance services for Cisco, Juniper, Riverbed, Extreme, F5 Networks and Brocade networking hardware. Not all networking hardware assets require expensive maintenance agreements from the Original Equipment Manufacturer, so OpEx budget cost reductions, often averaging 60+%, are not only possible, but perfectly viable with XSi independent support.

Which assets are eligible for XSi network maintenance and independent IT network support?

XSi provides an easy-to-deploy Network Hardware Asset Management Assessment to readily identify networking assets which receive free OS updates or are past (or approaching) key milestone dates (EoSW, EoL or EoS). Assessment results help XSi IT network support product managers lead a consultative dialogue with your team so per asset eligibility decisions are fully understood and agreed upon.

Think Cisco entitlement compliance (e.g. 2017 EULA announcement) could be an obstacle for an independent hardware support model? Not with XSi! Ask about XSi Cisco Lifecycle & Asset Assurance, a unique way of delivering IT network support.
