ERS2500 End of Sales
« on: May 10, 2013, 05:06:41 AM »
Avaya has released the End of Sales Notice for all ERS2500 Switches:

https://downloads.avaya.com/css/P8/documents/100170613

End of Sale Date (last day to order new systems)       30-Nov-2013
End of Manufacturer Support for SOFTWARE                30-Nov-2014
End of Manufacturer Support for HARDWARE               30-Nov-2016
Last day to purchase a new Avaya services contract  30-Nov-2018
Targeted End of Services Support                                31-Dec-2019

So if you have planed to buy some entry level Switches from Avaya it is time to take a look
at the ERS3500 family.

Cheers

Good   :)

the ERS2500 was a stupid switch. 

The rumours I hear is that there will be a ERS3548.  Just don't know if it will be PoE or PoE+

Looking at the age of the 5510/5520 switches, I wonder when they will be declared end of sales...

Kind regards,

with the exception of the ERS5510 routing flaw, they are awesome switches.

I know, but given the fact they are about 8 years old now, they should be hitting hardware limits for future features about now..

I think the future is in the 4800 series, although I thought I heard there was going be a 5800(?) series.

I disagree.
I don't think the ERS 4500 is going anywhere. The 4500 is positioned and priced as the default enterprise switch. Just how the ES470 was the default enterprise switch in the 2000's.  but if you want power redundancy or PoE+ then you move up to the 4800. If you need more horse power the you move up to the 5000 series.
If you want VENA, then you get the VSP4000 (ERS4800)

however, a little bird told me that there will be a 48 port PoE+ ERS 3500 switch next year. which makes the ERS2500 as useful as tits on a bull.

Year I also thought that Avaya declare the ERS5500 end of sales soon. I heard from Avaya the rumor
that they will continue to sell the ERS5500 line at least until the end of 2013 in fact there are still
enough people out there that are still buying ERS5500 switches.
I suggest we will see in future SW releases for the ERS5000 family that more and more features
are only available for ERS5600 switches like we have seen in SW release 6.3.

I could see Avaya killing the ERS5510.  But continuing the sale and support for the 5520 and 5530.

That would make sense, in fact the ERS5510 has less memory and cpu power inside than the ERS5520 and 5530. I would wait until the new line "ERS5800" or what ever they will be called is finished to pull out into the market before I stop producing the old modells.
