Refurbished Cisco Excess Program

Used and Refurbished Cisco excess hardwareEssential Technologies is pleased to be able to provide a Cisco approved alternative to buying used equipment from unauthorized sources.

Cisco began the Excess Refurbished program to optimize revenue for its technology portfolio, throughout the entire product lifecycle.  When Cisco has excess used inventory (from equipment off lease, returns, or general surplus due to limited demand), they designate these products to be re-sold into the used marketplace through a limited number of select Cisco partners.  All products are SMARTnet eligible, and include valid IOS software that is relicensed by Cisco for resale.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Significant cost savings
  • Valid serial numbers with relicensed IOS software
  • SMARTnet eligible
  • Eliminates the worry of counterfeit or gray market hardware
  • Availability of discontinued or backordered equipment
  • Products available include: Catalyst, Nexus, MDS, UCS
