On March 22, 2017 Toshiba America Information Systems informed us they would be stopping operation of their telecommunications division.
- Continue to ship purchased products until May 22, 2017, subject to stock and availability
- Honor all existing warranties until the end of the existing warranty commitment
- Honor all existing SUS (software subscription) until the end of the existing SUS commitment
- Honor all existing Toshiba maintenance until the end of existing commitment
- Current production Toshiba systems will continue getting Toshiba tech support for the next 10 years for government and school clients
- Current production Toshiba systems will continue getting tech support for the next 7 years for all business clients
Any Toshiba system that had been manufactured discontinued before the March 22, 2017 date will continue to have limited or no support from Toshiba, just like in the past.
