Five reasons to buy pre-owned used Cisco & IT equipment


AUTHOR JOE LEONE / PUBLISHED: JULY-12-2019

More and more organizations that once swore by OEM IT equipment are quickly warming up to the certified preowned (CPO) market. Why not get the same value at a better price? Especially if the equipment is thoroughly tested and comes with a solid warranty and professional services options.

Trifecta Networks, a specialist in IT products and solutions, offers the five most important things to consider if you’re looking at a CPO solution.

More and more organizations that once swore by OEM IT equipment are quickly warming up to the certified preowned (CPO) market. Why not get the same value at a better price? Especially if the equipment is thoroughly tested and comes with a solid warranty and professional services options.
Trifecta Networks, a specialist in IT products and solutions, offers the five most important things to consider if you’re looking at a CPO solution.

Used Cisco equipment is pre-tested to good as (or better than) new condition
The failure rate for OEM equipment is estimated at 5% to 8% and grows over 20 months after deployment. Equivalent CPO equipment from a trusted source has already been road-tested. Any “bugs” have been worked out. Trifecta Networks has put more than 1.5 million pieces of equipment through rigorous lab testing over nearly two decades. This includes switches, routers, firewalls, access points, phones and more.

CPO stretches your IT budget without sacrificing quality
Saving money on top-notch Cisco hardware is a priority for most organizations. Trifecta Networks offers CPO equipment at up to 90% off MSRP. This ranges from surplus, new-in-box equipment to legacy gear with plenty of life left in it; but that’s not where it ends. Each piece, both OEM surplus and pre-owned, is carefully tested and certified.

Design the best solution for your needs
The best IT equipment resellers will provide solutions. They have the know-how to configure core and peripheral parts that marry the right brands, versions and features for the project and environment. Trifecta Networks offers a combination of OEM ad CPO equipment to help customers configure and implement a custom solution.

You may not need the newest version to get the job done
It’s easy to overrun your budget when investing in your data center. Whether it’s a minor upgrade or a refresh, new equipment can come with costly bells and whistles you don’t need. Trifecta’s solutions and engineering experts work with customers to ensure they get exactly what they need, while helping them scale for the future.

You know exactly what you’re getting
Purchasing parts in the online marketplace comes with risks. Buying certified pre-owned IT equipment works best if your reseller has a track record of trustworthiness and can back your purchase with added value. In addition to a lifetime warranty on CPO equipment, Trifecta Networks offers a robust suite of professional services, equipment rentals, warehousing and asset disposition.

Enterprises that partner with Trifecta Networks always buy with confidence. They trust its sales and engineering teams for hassle-free, budget-friendly solutions. They know its lab operates under the strict auspices of ISO 9001: 2008 standards. They know every component is rigorously tested before it is labeled Trifecta 5 Star-Certified pre-owned equipment with advanced replacement Lifetime Warranty. They know they are getting, hands-down, the best warranty in the industry.
