    Personally this is why I prefer HP over Cisco - most products come with lifetime warranties, whereas Cisco products have 2 or 3 year warranties.

    Unfortunately I don't know of anyone who repairs switches to be honest.

    This should help recover from an IOS failure

    Recovering Catalyst Fixed Configuration Switches from a Corrupted or Missing Image - Cisco Systems


    And all fixed config cisco switches come with limited lifetime warranty.

    @Michael:

    It's a pity that HP switches don't last that long hehe!

    Had Cisco for 11 years now and still working well not a hiccup yet I know schools with HP switches that have had 2 or 3 failures in just a couple of years good job they do come with a lifetime warranty

    If I did change our infrastructure it would be for Juniper not HP.

    My experience of HP has been very different. I recently swapped some 10 year old HP2524's at one site. All worked perfectly without a problem and it was just time to upgrade to something more powerful.

    In all seriousness though, a lifetime warranty is fantastic and gives you confidence in a product. Why leaders like Cisco do not offer it is strange really.

    @Michael:

    I too asked the question, but having used the kit for so long without problems, I feel it has already been answered, its in the build

    I've just got the primary we support to send their 3650 48 port poe switch off to these folks Lifetime Repairs, Spares & Support - Comtek Network Systems (UK). It looks like it was damaged by a power surge last week which also took out some traffic lights. They claim £280+vat +£15 carriage for a fixed price repair and no charge if not repairable. I'll post back as soon as I know the outcome.

    Unless it's a Chassis then it's covered, just need to be the original owner and know who supplied it.
