Multiven Unveils Pay-as-you-Go Maintenance for all Cisco Networks


Silicon Valley - May 24, 2011 - Multiven – the world’s leading provider of maintenance for Internet networks – today announced monthly pay-as-you-go network maintenance services for all Cisco equipment to enable government, enterprise and education customers to procure affordable network maintenance services for their Cisco networking infrastructure.

Multiven Network Maintenance Services (Multiven NMS) is now available on a monthly pay-as-you-go model, which allows customers greater flexibility, choice and value when procuring network maintenance services.

Multiven NMS pay-as-you-go provides customers with:
Choice: as the leading credible alternative maintenance service to Cisco SMARTnet, Multiven NMS provides 24x7 direct-to-expert technical support, all Cisco software bug fixes and updates and lifetime support for all Cisco devices including pre-owned and manufacturer “end-of-support” equipment.
Value: with prices starting from $20 per device per month for Cisco platforms like Cisco 3750; $50 per device per month for Cisco 6500s and $100 per device per month for GSR 12000s, Multiven NMS offers unprecedented value to customers looking to save on network maintenance costs.
Flexibility: customers can start and stop maintenance services at will, paying only for monthly services consumed.

“The sole connection between us and all our online data is the Internet infrastructure. Thus, the reliability and availability of the internet is critical to our everyday life“ said Peter Alfred-Adekeye, Multiven CEO. ”Unfortunately as a direct consequence of hefty manufacturer premiums, lengthy and inflexible contract terms, forced equipment obsolescence and budgetary constraints, less than 25% of the internet infrastructure is currently under an active maintenance support contract. It is our hope that the unprecedented flexibility and tremendous cost savings that Multiven NMS affords customers worldwide with pay-as-you-go maintenance services will ensure that no Cisco network device goes unmaintained"

Multiven NMS Pay-As-You-Go features include:

* 24x7 Direct-to-Expert™ Technical Support
* All Cisco Software bug fixes
* Collaborative Asset Manager
* Multivendor Knowledge-Base
* Online Task Management Tools
* Optional Advanced Hardware Replacement across multiple SLAs including 8x5xNBD
