Support Lifecycle Process
Products reach the end of their Product Life Cycle for a variety of reasons. Factors may include parts or repair resource availability, technology innovation, or the products are no longer economically feasible to continue support. Developer sets retirement dates for legacy products by taking all of these factors into consideration.
Developer recognizes that support-milestone announcements (when a product reaches "End of Build," "End of Contract," or "End of Service") may prompt companies to evaluate their current business environment, including their device and support solutions roadmap. With that in mind, we have developed this website section to help customers manage their roadmap transitions, and to provide a clearer understanding of the assistance INTELLIPLANS can offer – including assistance in migration to alternative INTELLIPLANS products and solutions.
Support Lifecycle Definitions
Current Products: This refers to products currently manufactured and sold by Developer. These products are fully supported.
Retiring Products: This refers to products that have entered into their last year of development. These products can still be purchased and are still fully supported.
End-of-Build or EOB: This refers to products that are no longer developed by Developer.
End-of-Service or EOS: This refers to products for which Developer is no longer able to provide Technical or Maintenance service, due to a variety of reasons.
