As part of the previous post we are looking for an 8 port Cisco Gigabit switch that does Power-over-Ethernet.
Before clicking the CheckOut button in that supplier’s online console it’s a good idea to know which products are sitting at the end of their life.
Otherwise, for the Cisco Partner there may be no post-sales support for the product beyond warranty needs.
The same goes for any other vendor’s products. After working with them over time it becomes a little easier to know when a particular product we have been supplying is on its way out.
