IT teams can play a more active role in their companies’ green initiatives by considering Cisco Refresh. Aside from costing less, when you choose Cisco Refresh, you are directly supporting the circular economy. The repair, remanufacturing and reuse of Cisco equipment is an important part of this regenerative system and results in a reduction of resource inputs, waste, emissions, and energy leakage.
Cisco Refresh products are ideal as a standalone solution when specific parts and quantities are needed; however, the value of Cisco Refresh is even greater when blended in a solution with new Cisco equipment.
Cisco Refresh products are made by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and produced to the same standards as new. From initial inspection and testing to cleaning and packing, only Cisco can truly remanufacture to the same level as new.
Inventory includes products from all technology areas, including switching, routing, wireless, IP telephony, security, and other advanced technologies.
When budget is limited, Cisco Refresh provides maximum flexibility to procure the technology you need. With prices from 65% off original equipment prices, Cisco Refresh products provide a cost-effective solution.
All Cisco Refresh units are shipped with a valid software license and come with the same full Cisco warranty as the equivalent new equipment. This includes limited lifetime warranties where applicable. Cisco Refresh products also carry the same Cisco SMARTnet support options as the equivalent new product.
