Is SMARTnet a guarantee or an insurance policy for Cisco?
Cisco groups support SMARTnet with your hardware initially at the time of purchase, and these contracts are usually structured for 1-3 years. Once the initial contract SMARTnet Cisco terminates, your maintenance costs will skyrocket.
Like the cost to renew manufacturer support on older equipment, it is substantially higher than the cost to support new hardware.
It may make superficial sense - older equipment is more likely to have some problems than the hardware that has just been removed from the box. However what manufacturers don't want you to know is that it costs Cisco really less to maintain your equipment while it is on the market for longer.
This is because spare parts become more abundant and engineering expertise less scarce. Cisco treats more SMARTnet as an insurance policy than a maintenance plan.
So when your equipment is more likely to require support, the manufacturer chooses to intimidate you into buying new hardware.
