Product End of Life Policy


Products have lifecycles and eventually phase out of the market due to several factors including decreased demand, a drop in sales, technological innovation and development, and the launch of more competitive products. Considering the possible impact of product lifecycle termination on customer networks, technology, and product replacement, Huawei (Enterprise BG) has formulated a unified end of life(EOL) policy to help customers better manage EOL transitions, understand the role Huawei can play in assisting in migration to alternative platforms and technologies, and other high-quality products and services that Huawei can continue to provide to customers.

The EOL policy applies only to Huawei products, boards/parts, and software release. It does not apply to products whose lifecycle has already come to an end.
