Cost Savings over Time for 2 hosts (accumulated costs in the US dollars over 24 months. Costs for the RHUB server include the optional warranty subscription in the second year.):




Cost Savings over Time for 10 hosts (accumulated costs in the US dollars over 24 months. Costs for the RHUB server include the optional warranty subscription in the second year.):





The above cost saving charts are based on TM-210, an entry model of the RHUB products. Higher end models will bring faster cost savings to larger organizations.

NOTE: Costs for the supply and distribution of RHUB products, in the UK and Europe, are slightly more expensive, as such costs as local support are built into our pricing modules.
