Q: When should I consider Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment?

A: Cisco refurbished equipment is ideal as a standalone solution when specific parts and quantities are needed, however, it's value is even greater when blended in a solution with new Cisco equipment. Cisco refurbished equipment works especially well in the following scenarios:

  • Constrained budget: When budget is limited, Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment provides the maximum flexibility in procuring the technology you need. With prices up to 70 percent off original equipment prices, refurbished Cisco products provide a cost-effective solution individual product needs, or be combined with new Cisco products in a larger solution to reduce the overall cost and meet even the most challenging procurement requirements.
  • Product availability: We maintain a large inventory of older or end-of-sale models needed to maintain installed network configurations or to optimize IT resources between planned migrations or upgrades. Our inventory of current models provides a solution if new product availability cannot accommodate your delivery requirements. In-stock products can generally ship within 24 hours.
  • Compliance with corporate "green" requirements: Remanufactured equipment provides a tangible green solution to help customers address corporate "green" initiatives. A remanufactured unit uses less energy to "manufacture", helps to extend the useful life of Cisco products, and reduces the amount of electronic equipment ending up in landfills.
