Accrued liabilities consisted of the following:
Maintenance and Warranty
Sales of devices generally include an initial warranty for parts and services for one year in the U.S. and two years in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company determined it had sufficient historical experience of warranty costs to estimate future warranty costs for devices sold. As a result, and beginning during the year ended December 31, 2016, a liability for the estimated cost of product warranty is established at the time revenue is recognized based on the historical experience of known product failure rates and expected material and labor costs to provide warranty services. From time to time, specific additional warranty accruals may be made if unforeseen technical problems arise. Alternatively, if estimates are determined to be greater than the actual amounts necessary, a portion of the liability may be reversed in future periods. Warranty costs are reflected in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss as a component of costs of revenue.
In addition, in the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company recorded in its consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss a one-time charge of $911 for a preventative maintenance and improvement program for devices sold prior to 2016 to bring the devices to second generation GT-level functionality.
