Industry studies have shown that the reality is much different from the myth. In fact, failure rates of newer hardware tend to be higher. While it may not seem logical, it makes sense once you understand how it works. Take a look at the graphic below:
You’ll notice that failure rates are higher early. This is due to failures of new hardware, often times out-of-box failures. However, once a switch or other hardware gets “burned in” the hardware is very reliable for a long time. Then as the equipment ages, it starts to result in the natural failure rates you’d expect from wear and age. Therefore, you can use a mix of new and pre-owned to get the right combination of technology that suits you best while optimizing your budget. Plus, with the money you save on hardware, you can apply that to high-priority projects.
“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.”
