Security updates and support until EOL with advance replacement

Professional services in connection with business continuity are key to efficient network operation. So, it is best to protect your device directly when you purchase it. With LANcare Advanced, you receive security updates for your device throughout the entire product lifecycle as well as technical manufacturer support as a customer with a support contract. LANcare Advanced also offers you the highest level of investment protection and minimal downtime with its integrated advance replacement. In the event of a hardware defect, a replacement device will be delivered to you on the next business day.

Note: LANcare Advanced only applies within the EU. For replacement service outside the EU, please refer to LANcare Basic.

High planning reliability with security updates

With LANcare Advanced, you can plan ahead and benefit from full protection throughout the entire product lifecycle of the device – i.e. for at least another five years. Particularly in long-term projects, LANcare Advanced ensures reliable, secure business operations beyond an official product discontinuation. This includes free software maintenance via security updates of the respective operating system to keep your device running at the highest level of security until the End of Life date.

For more information on software maintenance and the product lifecycle of your device, please visit the LANCOM Software Lifecycle Management website.

Technical support directly from the manufacturer

To ensure the safe operation of your devices, it may be helpful to contact the technical manufacturer support directly. For technical support or fault reports, LANCOM Support staff are on hand to offer advice and assistance. With your support contract, you therefore receive professional support for LANCOM devices for which LANcare Advanced is registered until the End of Life date of your device. For comparison: Without LANcare Advanced and after the device warranty expires, LANCOM support is only available at a fee.

Note on the support contract: As a partner, you automatically receive a support contract from us. As an end customer, the project-related products LANcare Premium Support 24/7 and 10/5, or the device-related LANcare Direct 24/7 and 10/5, as well as the variants with advance replacement, LANcare Direct Advanced 24/7 and 10/5 are available to you. For more information on support services for partners and end customers, please visit the Support Contact web page.

Fast advance replacement including delivery on the next business day

By purchasing products from LANCOM, you are choosing reliable and durable products, but failures and malfunctions do occur sometimes. With LANcare Advanced, you reduce the downtime of your network to a minimum and benefit for five years from an advance replacement of the device for which LANcare Advanced has been registered. If you report a support case by 2 p.m., you will receive a replacement device by the next working day. This means that your network will be fully operational again within the shortest possible time.
