Prime LMS EOL? Migration to Prime Infrastructure???

Hi All,

I'm a little bit confused about the support for Prime LMS 4.2.5... is there any date for end of Life/end of support for LMS?

Should customers migrate to Prime Infrastructure or what does cisco recommend???

best regards

Prime LMS 4.2 is not yet End of Sales or End of Life. Cisco continues to provide support develop minor device package updates etc. for it.

It will not get another major release going forward as strategically the platform being developed for wired and wireless LAN management is Prime Infrastructure (PI).

For existing LMS customers, they are encouraged to review the current feature comparison (link) and determine which product better serves their needs given that PI 2.2 does not have feature parity with Prime LMS 4.2.5. (Even new PI customers are given a license for Prime LMS in acknowledgement of this fact. How long that continues remains to be seen.)

For now if you buy LMS or PI, you get the other product for free. So you never bet on one horse.

 

Cisco obviously wants to to move towards PI, but I think you should compare and see what features are still missing that you deem required.

 

Send that info to your account manager at cisco, so he can make the BU aware.

 

Cheers,

 

Michel
