Refurbished I.T. Equipment Will Help Stretch Your Budget
I used to run the I.T. department of a large company. It was there that I learned, firsthand, just how complex and expensive a task it is. To be honest, as exciting as all that new information technology is, I do not miss all the battles over budgets and all the justifications of the high cost of new I.T. equipment.
As any Cisco reseller can tell you, technological progress in network modules continues unabated, and the costs can be high. I.T. equipment these days includes not just computers, but a whole infrastructure of routers, switches, bridges, and access servers. If your organization supports smartphones, VoIP, and other wireless communications, network systems support for those services adds cost and complexity. And with our ever-increasing reliance on electronic communication for all aspects of business, security is becoming a seemingly endless challenge that requires the most sophisticated tracing, monitoring and firewall systems.
What all of this means is that the cost of I.T. equipment can easily get out of hand. As a result, more and more I.T. managers and CEOs look toward used and refurbished I.T. equipment. This, of course, requires a good understanding of communications systems technologies, capabilities and performance or else you end up with a sluggish, incompatible and easily compromised network. Do your homework, however, and you can easily stretch your budget with refurbished routers, switches, servers and other network modules from leading vendors. Some of the equipment you can procure from network systems resellers that specialize in refurbished and pre-owned network gear is actually new and may simply have been replaced.
Using refurbished equipment means you can update or expand an existing networking installation for far less than it'd cost to buy new. Likewise, if your disaster recovery plan calls for redundancy or additional backups, you can also safe a bundle by checking used networking product. With network systems security and performance being ever more important, yet funds and budgets ever harder to come by, keeping an eye on used and remarketed network gear simply makes sense.
