Proof: Used Cisco Routers as Reliable as New


Network Hardware Reliability: New vs Pre-owned  network hardware reliability rates - bathtub curve

You may not know it, but the myths about used or refurbished Cisco equipment and pre-owned network hardware being less reliable is busted.


Industry studies have shown that the reality is much different from the myth.  In fact, failure rates of newer hardware tend to be higher.  [insert a link to a page with the study – may need to be added]. While it may not seem logical, it makes sense once you understand how it works.



“Most network equipment is designed to have MTBF greater than 100,000 hours (roughly 11 years), with a general trend toward increasing MTBF due to simpler and standardized design elements.”

- Gartner, Know When It’s Time to Replace Enterprise Network Equipment, March 2015, Foundational June 2016 [ID G00273656]

CXtec has been providing our exclusive brand of pre-owned hardware, equal2new, to companies of all kinds since 1995. 
We have an incredible reliability rating that is equal or better than new. In our expansive testing and certification center, we use an ISO-certified quality process to ensure a quality product that performs equal to new.
