Worldwide Supply, the leader in the secondary networking and services marketplace, has seen sales of its NetGuard maintenance program triple original projections in the last 12 months. The service frees customers from the shackles of single-brand manufacturer maintenance services such as Cisco® SMARTnet®. NetGuard provides best-of-breed maintenance service for most leading brands of networking and telecommunications equipment, including Cisco, Juniper, Motorola, Arris and many more. NetGuard makes it highly cost effective for companies to retain and extend the life of existing equipment.
“Since we moved away from SMARTnet and signed a NetGuard maintenance agreement with Worldwide Supply last year, we’ve cut our maintenance costs in half without giving up any of the features we need like next day equipment replacement” says Mike Olson of Sterling Properties. “The savings have enabled us to upgrade some of our older networking equipment and pocket a nice chunk of change in the process”, continues Olson.
“Today companies are exploring ways to maximize return-on-investment of existing hardware,’ said Jay VanOrden, CEO of Worldwide Supply. “We are thrilled to provide a service that exactly serves that purpose, while at the same time saving our clients 30 to 50 percent on total network maintenance.”
While services such as SMARTnet focus upon a single OEM and typically new equipment, NetGuard brings unsurpassed maintenance services to a broad range of products. Service highlights include same or next-business-day hardware replacement, anytime access to Certified Service Engineers and web resources to help ensure the fast, expert resolution of critical network issues.
NetGuard protection is available for Worldwide Supply-purcha sed products and also for hardware acquired through a manufacturer or other provider. Types of products covered by NetGuard include routers, switches, wireless devices, access servers, CMTS equipment, IP telephony and more.
