Cisco6500: Obtain Maintenance for the Most Prolific Selling Switch

by Esther Kim on June 13, 2017
Find me on:

Cisco 65xx Series Switches has been the best-selling switch for well over a decade. Cost of maintenance on these series of switches has been a pain point for many organizations. List prices for SNT (8x5xNBD) and SNTP (7x24x4) prices are the following:

  • SNT $6,825
  • SNTP $10,920

The major reason why Cisco pushes consumers to purchase SMARTnet on the Cisco 65xx devices are for access to IOS updates and bug fixes but with a number of supervisor cards at End-of-Software-Update (EoSW) or past Last-Date-of-Support (LDOS), XSi can support almost all Cisco 6500 series switches at the fraction of SMARTnet's cost! XSi can offer your organization SAVINGS IN EXCESS OF 80 PERCENT OFF FOR CISCO 6500 SERIES SWITCHES!

Older generation supervisor cards are incredibly stable products and there isn't a good justifiable financial decision why you should be paying high prices from Cisco to maintain your Cisco 6500 series switches. 

Here is a table of Cisco 6500 series switches' supervisor cards and their milestone dates:
