For Fuze customers with AppNeta hardware, AppNeta devices will reach end-of-sale (EOS) and end-of-life (EOL) on June 14, 2023. No action is required, and there is no impact on services as a result of this change.
Fuze customers with AppNeta hardware (including but not limited to the following models):
AppNeta is a 3rd party network monitoring device that sits on your network to provide diagnostic data. These legacy devices are no longer efficient. 8x8 leverages an in-house network utility, so there is no impact on 8x8 Support or Deployment teams.
Admin Action Required
IT teams may wish to disconnect and recycle the device as e-waste. Additionally, we recommend notifying Admins or IT professionals with access to the AppNeta Portal (used to view diagnostic data) that it will stop working as of the EOL date.
