Cut costs
while sacrificing
zero on quality

Don't pay
for software no longer being updated

Do I need SMARTnet to get software updates?

No. Cisco’s IOS updates are free for its LAN switches from 2960s up to 4500s. We have also found that 40-60% of the devices on our clients’ SMARTnet contracts were no longer receiving new software updates.

What if I want to work with one support provider only?

Curvature makes the process seamless with our one-number-to-call service (Concierge Desk). You can call us whether the device is covered by Curvature or SMARTnet. We can open cases on your behalf with Cisco.

How do you support new technology like my Nexus 9300 platform?

Simple: we do not. We will always recommend new platforms stay on SMARTnet.

We have to be PCI compliant. Does that mean I need SMARTnet?

PCI standards require you to patch any known vulnerabilities. Cisco makes patches available for free through its PSIRT notices.

Are End-of -Life assets the main devices you support?

No. That is only a fraction of what we support. For example, we support LAN switches from day 1. Most of the devices we support are in-life.

Is the best strategy for you to support my edge devices, and Cisco to support my core?

No, not necessarily. For example, 6500-E switches no longer get software updates and are perfect for independent support.

According to Cisco, you don't have the right to convey the software license on the spares you provide. Is that correct?

Our belief is that software transfers with the sale of hardware under the “First Sale Doctrine” under U.S. copyright law.

Why should I consider your support if my entire network is critical, and I only trust Cisco's SMARTnet?

With NetSure, our value is in the hardware replacement of your devices. Our spare parts are quality tested and have a lower failure rate than the manufacturer. Our logistics department has a faster delivery time, with data to prove it.
