There are several reasons why technology products reach the end of their life cycles. These include changes in market demand, innovation-driven product improvements, or mature products that are simply replaced by better technology. At Raritan, we are committed to helping customers manage their end-of-life transition and migrate to alternative solutions. If you are interested in migrating to any of our newer products, please call 1-800-724-8090 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
