Under the KVM trade-in program, the end-users will contact the participating resellers with certain details such as the KVM equipment they wish to trade-in, manufacturer names and model numbers and so forth (it has to fall within the list of eligible trade-in switches).
Dependent on the program, end-users could be given trade-in credits, rebates or monetary discounts - also known as cash-back when trade-in existing KVM Switches, KVM rack consoles or Serial Switches from the manufacturers who are offering the KVM trade-in program and will be eligible for the new trade-in product.
What options are there?
It all depends on your preference, whether by brand choice, the KVM trade-in discount rates (credits, cash-back and so forth), the warranty services, or the services you have previously experience that may have won you over when selecting the appropriate KVM trade-in program.
There are options like the KVM over IP switch and LCD KVM rack console trade-in program which will expire at the end of June, the KVM and serial console trade-in program which will expire at the end of March or KVM systems trade-up which will expire at the end of March.
