Whether you classify it as a product or a service is your decision. You make your choice by what you are acquiring. From the background, you describe acquiring platforms and components which indicates a product/supply. The question is, "How much maintenance is included over the course of the contract?" If you are purchasing some equipment but maintaining it and possibly more, it could be considered a service. Are the majority of the dollars going toward equipment or toward maintenance?
