In the digital age there is constant pressure on carriers to keep up with the fastest data speeds. As a result of more frequent technology upgrades, older equipment gets discontinued and the OEMs become unable to support it. In other words, systems are becoming End-of-Life (EOL) or End-of-Support (EOS).
If your telecoms system infrastructure becomes EOL/EOS, updating isn’t always the most practical solution. Replacing equipment can be time consuming and expensive. Equally, if your current system is integrated deeply in the infrastructure of your business, disregarding it may not be required.
If you are looking to extend the life of your legacy and EOL equipment, MMX offer industry-leading services to manage your systems, including:
If your current equipment needs removing or replacing, we have the capability to support this too. MMX’s parent company, TXO Systems, is a market-leading asset management specialist. TXO seamlessly delivers a range of integrated end-of-life management services, including de-installation, refurbishment, re-use, re-sale, and recycling, all designed to optimise asset retention and to maximise any final return on your original equipment investment.
TXO is also an expert in sourcing hard-to-find telecom parts. This hands us the capacity to be a one-stop-shop for our customers. By offering both options for repair and replace, clients can save time and resource looking for alternative support.
Benefits of extending your legacy network
- Reduce risk of downtime – Keeping networks operational for as long as possible reduces this risk. The last thing that operators want is an interrupted network which leads to unhappy customers.
- Price – Buying brand new kit is expensive and saving on budgets is a priority for many. Therefore, extending the life of your equipment, instead of buying new, is an option for those looking to save on operational and capital expenditure (OPEX and CAPEX).
- Environmental benefits – Thousands of telecom parts end up in landfill every year because they are no longer used, often being disposed of unnecessarily when there could be reuse opportunities for them.
