Why Choose CovrEDGE?

Reduced Costs

Edgeium customers save up to 80% of the costs associated with annual hardware maintenance services compared to OEM network support plans.

Expert Support

Through our CovrEDGE third party hardware support, every ticket is immediately assigned to an engineer with the highest level of certification for your specific OEM, including a CCIE for Cisco.

Flexible Terms

We build every network maintenance contract to fit your business. If you’re planning on replacing a switch in 4 months, we’ll do a 4 month contract.

No Forced Upgrades

All OEMs practice inflating maintenance costs to dissuade continued use. Edgeium instead provides a way to extend the life of your existing network assets.

Free Upgrades

When applicable, we will replace failed hardware with a newer generation product. A standalone 3750X can be replaced with a 3850.

I can’t say enough about Edgeium.   I was in Houston for a scheduled upgrade and unboxing what was supposed to be a turnkey solution and realized the vendor didn’t include the needed components to complete the install.  I called Joe, and he literally had someone fly down with the parts that same day.  I couldn’t believe it.  I was able to complete the upgrade as planned.  Thank you Edgeium!

“Edgeium’s fast turnaround on quotes, quick shipping and follow-up allows me to focus on my job — not the when and how of logistics of gear. They work easily with my team and offer technical expertise when I don’t have the time to research parts and compatibility. That alone makes my job more efficient and easier.”

— Senior Network Engineer, Top 5 Transportation Company

Very friendly, attentive, and responsive services. Amazing prices for all major name brands devices like (Dell, Cisco, Juniper., etc). Also, I’d recommend anyone to try out Edgeium brand SFP’s. They cost a fraction of the name brand and work the same as the OEM units.

— Sr. Network Engineer, Mobile Gaming Company

Edgeium branded optics are a lot better quality than many others that I’ve tried in the past. Much closer to Cisco Original than my prior vendors.
