A popular question is: What is included in a Cisco warranty?

Answer: “Warranties provide limited liability for Cisco or its designated representative to repair and/or replace defects in Cisco products. They are generally limited in both the duration and the support they offer. Warranties generally do not include Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support, software updates, or any of the additional benefits obtained under a support service contract. It is the responsibility of Cisco or Cisco’s designated representative to repair and/or replace the Cisco product within the time frame identified in the warranty card or license agreement that accompanied the originally purchased Cisco product. Cisco reserves the right to refund the purchase price as its exclusive warranty remedy.”

Elements covered under a Cisco warranty are:

  • Hardware: This guarantees that the hardware will be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use, or it will be replaced by Cisco or Cisco’s designated representative.
  • Software: This guarantees that the physical media are free from defects, or they will be replaced by Cisco. Also, the warranty guarantees that the software generally conforms to the published specifications for the product. Software is provided “as is,” and in no event does Cisco warrant that the software is error free or that customer will be able to operate the software without problems or interruptions. Warranty does not include software updates.

Note: Some Cisco Catalyst fixed switches are covered by the Cisco Catalyst OS software update policy. The software policy is not a part of warranty and is subject to change without notice.
