Hi Team ,
We have Catalyst 6509-E model , We just want to know how to read end of life and end of life support contracts .
Please correct me if my understanding is wrong ....
End of life : means we will not be able to buy new 6500 switch after October 31 2019 onwards ...
End of support : Customer who has 6500 switches will get support till Oct 31 2025 ?
End of life : October 31, 2019
End of support : October 31, 2025
the end of sale date is actually a part of the end of life policy, they are usually not the same. The end of life date is usually six months before the end of sale date.
You are right about the end of support implications.
The document linked below might clarify this further, it can indeed get a bit confusing:
