Refurbished networking equipment has gained popularity as a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to upgrade their network infrastructure. However, there are still some misconceptions and myths surrounding refurbished networking equipment. In this article, we aim to debunk these common myths and shed light on the truth about refurbished networking equipment; and how we ensure that these myths do not relate to the items we stock and sell at Dedicated Networks.

Myth #1: Refurbished Equipment Is Unreliable

One of the most persistent myths about refurbished networking equipment is that it is inherently unreliable. This couldn’t be further from the truth. At Dedicated Networks, as a reputable refurbisher, we thoroughly test and inspect each piece of equipment to ensure it meets quality standards. We replace any faulty components and restore the equipment to optimal working conditions. In fact, our refurbished networking equipment comes with a 1-Year Guarantee and excellent customer service, providing peace of mind to our customers.

Eric Groshens, Account Manager at Dedicated Networks with seven years of industry experience, speaks to how we are different from other networking equipment resellers in our industry,

“Not all refurbishing companies are the same! At Dedicated Networks, we pride ourselves on putting the customers first. When you buy from us you can rest assured that we have your back. We provide a standard 1-Year Guarantee on all our gear. In case of any issues, count on our quick response with overnight replacements from our available stock. If a replacement is impossible, a full refund will be promptly provided.”

Myth #2: Refurbished Equipment Is Outdated

Another prevalent misconception is that refurbished networking equipment is outdated and lacks the latest features. While it’s true that refurbished equipment may not always be the latest model, it doesn’t mean it’s outdated. Refurbishers often refurbish equipment that is only a few years old but is still capable of meeting the demands of modern networks. At Dedicated Networks, we carry pre-owned, open-box, and new networking equipment giving our customers the opportunity to choose the condition of the equipment that works with their network. We also sell functional items that cannot be fully repaired, offering our customers great equipment at a low cost. We believe in providing choices and value, empowering our customers to find the perfect fit for their requirements and budget.

Myth #3: Refurbished Equipment Has Short Lifespans

Some believe that refurbished networking equipment has shorter lifespans compared to new equipment. In reality, the lifespan of refurbished equipment is similar to that of new equipment when properly maintained. Refurbished equipment undergoes rigorous testing and refurbishment processes, ensuring that any potential issues are addressed. By following regular maintenance practices and utilizing appropriate support services, businesses can extend the lifespan of their refurbished networking equipment.

Dispelling the common myths surrounding refurbished networking equipment is crucial for businesses considering cost-effective solutions for their network infrastructure needs. The reality is that refurbished equipment undergoes rigorous testing, is not outdated, can have a similar lifespan to new equipment, offers significant cost savings, and often comes with warranties and support. By debunking these myths, businesses can make informed decisions and confidently embrace the benefits of refurbished networking equipment.
