FiberPlex Technologies, a producer of secure digital communications, has entered into a maintenance agreement to extend the life of its fiber optic products currently in service and purchased by government agencies over the past 25 years.
The extended service agreement is available for fiber optic products purchased under the FiberPlex name regardless of purchase date, FiberPlex says.
FiberPlex’ extended warranty program will help agencies leverage their investment in the company’s fiber optic products and provide predictable fixed maintenance costs, according to Mitch Abel, the company’s director of government relations.
“We anticipate that this ESA program will help dozens of agencies set a fixed maintenance cost on their FiberPlex optic systems, and in many cases, provide some budget relief in the wake of sequestration,” Abel says.
In addition, FiberPlex products that are beyond the standard one-year parts and workmanship warranty offered by the company can be re-certified and qualified for an extended one- or three-year coverage period under an ESA, FiberPlex says. The ESA encompasses the majority of FiberPlex products, including its serial data, IT infrastructure, WDM and LightViper products, the company says.
