Frequently Asked Questions

How does Alta Technologies guarantee the performance of used Cisco switches?

Each used Cisco switch at Alta Technologies undergoes a stringent refurbishment process. Our skilled technicians inspect, test, and prepare the switches to ensure they meet your high-performance standards. By adhering to these rigorous protocols, we ensure that our used Cisco switches operate with the efficiency and reliability that you would expect from a brand new unit.

I’m continually impressed with our networking technical team in their exceptional ability to test and configure thousands of switches each week, while supporting our client base pre and post-sale.

What can I do with old Cisco Switches?

You can trade in your old Cisco switches for cash or credit towards new equipment at companies like Alta. We also offer to purchase them outright for cash offers, providing a return on your initial investment. You could also repurpose them within your own organization, if there is a relevant use case.

Of course, you could also recycle the hardware, but reuse is the highest form of recycling, so we recommend finding a reuse partner to give those switches a second chance. By choosing to sell or trade with us, you're engaging in an eco-friendly practice that extends the lifecycle of hardware, supporting sustainability and reducing e-waste.

“I love surprising clients with how much their used Cisco switches are still worth, allowing them to put those dollars towards new projects or upgrade costs” – Mike Brokofsky, Cisco Product Manager

What range of used Cisco switches does Alta Technologies stock?

Alta Technologies boasts an extensive inventory of used Cisco switches, spanning from the Catalyst series to the Nexus line, storage switching, and more. Whether you're seeking solutions for a small business network cabinet or a Fortune 500’s large data center or colo, our diverse range ensures we can cater to various networking requirements.

Can I expect post-purchase support for the used Cisco switches I acquire from Alta?

Absolutely! At Alta Technologies, our commitment doesn't end with the sale. Every used Cisco switch comes with a replacement warranty, and our dedicated support team is always ready to assist with any queries, configuration challenges, or issues you might encounter. We aim to provide a seamless experience, ensuring your network runs smoothly and efficiently.

Why are Cisco Switches so expensive?

Cisco switches command premium prices due to their advanced features, reliability, and industry-leading performance. For years, Cisco has dominated the market for switches, but with robust competition that is cutting into market share - from Arista, Juniper, HPE, Dell and others. We expect pricing to continue to get more competitive.

However, at Alta Technologies, we provide cost-effective alternatives by offering refurbished Cisco switches that deliver the same high-quality performance and dependability at a fraction of the cost of new equipment, backed by our rigorous testing and warranty support.

Are Refurbished Cisco Switches Good?

Refurbished Cisco switches are absolutely a good value, as long as you buy from a trusted vendor with rigorous testing processes and top notch support.

At Alta Technologies, our refurbished Cisco switches are a great investment. They undergo thorough testing and verification processes to ensure they meet the same performance and reliability standards as new ones. Customers get high-quality switches at a significantly lower cost, complete with a warranty from Alta for peace of mind.

As corporations everywhere seek circular IT solutions, using refurbished Cisco switches is not only an economical win, but also an environmentally friendly solution for any network's needs.
