Third Party Maintenance

Looking for the best value in your choice of transceivers without sacrificing quality and reliability?

If you’re buying OEM transceivers,
you’re paying too much!

Find out why Gartner calls OEM transceivers the “biggest rip-off in networking”

Gartner Analysts Andrew Lerner and Sanjit Ganguli advise buyers of IT infrastructure hardware to consider switching to third-party optics to reduce spending by using non-OEM-branded transceivers.

Among the highlights of their findings:

  • Transceivers account for a surprisingly high portion of network capital spending: 10% to 15% on average
  • OEM transceivers are excessively marked-up – “up to 350%”
  • Buyers are overpaying for transceivers “by 50% or more”
  • Buying Third-Party optics can help curtail wasteful spending and reallocate it to more strategic initiatives.
  • OSI Optics is cited in the report as alternative supplier of transceivers
