If you are interested in buying Cisco equipment, you have a number of options. You can buy equipment directly from Cisco or from authorized Cisco resellers. You can buy equipment new or used. Cisco hardware may be freely resold or leased.


Used and secondary-market equipment is not covered under the Cisco standard warranty. Nor can you place it under a Cisco service and support contract unless it is relicensed by Cisco and has passed our inspection.

We can help you buy used or secondary-market Cisco equipment with confidence. In the Cisco Hardware Inspection and Software Relicensing Program, we inspect the equipment and relicense the software. Leasing companies that want to re-lease a Cisco product to another customer after the original lease term has expired can also participate in the program.

This program protects Cisco intellectual property, and it protects your network. You can be assured that the equipment is in proper condition, that it is running the safest and most appropriate software, and that it can deliver the full value you expect.(Note: If you do not wish to go through the relicensing and inspecting of used or secondary-market equipment, you can buy refurbished equipment for 25 to 75 percent off the original list price through Cisco Refresh. For more information, visit: )

This page provides an overview of the Cisco policies governing used and secondary-market equipment and software relicensing. In the section "Using the Program," you will find the steps you take to have Cisco products relicensed and inspected.

To take advantage of the Cisco Hardware Inspection and Software Relicensing Program, please contact your Cisco account manager or service account manager, or email the request to

This Software License Transfer and Re-Use Policy applies to all Cisco software, whether standalone, embedded software on hardware that is resold or on equipment that is re-leased to a new customer after the original lease term expired. Certain exceptions to the Policy requirement to pay a new license fee apply. They include:

The Cisco standard warranty and Cisco service and support contracts are not transferable. That means that any purchase of used or secondary-market Cisco equipment is not covered by the Cisco standard warranty and is not eligible for coverage by a Cisco support contract even if it is purchased through a Cisco channel partner or distributor.

Before used or secondary-market equipment can be placed under a new support contract, the requester must show proof of a valid software license and must have the equipment inspected to confirm that it is in proper working order and has been maintained appropriately. For more details visit the Non-Entitlement to Cisco Warranty and Service Support of Secondary Market Products Policy.

Customers who are interested in used or secondary-market Cisco equipment, but who do not wish to go through the process of relicensing and inspection, can buy remanufactured products through Cisco Refresh. For more information, visit:

A: No, unless it is specifically allowed under the Cisco Software License Transfer and Re-Use Policy. Cisco software licenses are not transferable from user to user unless otherwise stated by Cisco or required by applicable law. Any purchaser of used or secondary-market Cisco equipment is required to relicense the software. For further details read the End User License Agreement.

A: No. Use the global Compromised Equipment Return-to-Service (CERtS) process to determine under what circumstances (if any) the affected Cisco equipment may be re-entitled for Cisco maintenance and other Cisco services. Please initiate the CERtS process by emailing

I want to buy a cisco router and a cisco switch, but i don't know where to buy it. Because i only have little money, and i don't know about cisco equipments very well, so who can tell me where i can buy the cheapest and best cisco products, and they should provid free cisco support, because i never used cisco hardware before.

CXtec is the world's leading provider of used Cisco equipment, but we give much more. Our proprietary equal2new brand of certified pre-owned Cisco gear provides our clients with all of the benefits of purchasing refurbished Cisco hardware and the peace of mind that comes with purchasing new. Our Cisco equipment is as reliable as or better than new OEM equipment.

We rely on an unrivaled testing and certification process in the industry. Each piece of equipment is thoroughly tested to ensure that it meets the equal2new standard. This ensures that our customers receive consistently great quality and performance.

Many shops don't realize this, but Cisco maintains their own standards for refurbished hardware, and an exclusive small network of authorized resellers who deal in this equipment. If you aren't dealing with an authorized reseller, you're taking a big gamble with your hardware investment.

Cisco certified resellers enjoy benefits others do not, and those benefits all go to helping you succeed with pre-owned hardware. Now with the revamped Cisco Refresh program you benefit from the same features of new Cisco equipment but at a fraction of the cost.

Every piece sold under the Cisco-Authorized banner has to fully conform to their standards... but this simply isn't true of anyone else. Without that quality guarantee in place, the used hardware you're buying is as questionable as something from a pawn shop. There's just no way to know before buying whether it will be reliable.

Authorized Cisco resellers can also provide official Cisco warranties. Every officially-certified piece of refurbished Cisco equipment carries the exact same warranty and service options as a new piece of hardware. This includes full access to Cisco's Technical Assistance Center.

Here's a question too many businesses don't think to ask: "Does this used equipment come with the right software licenses?" If they aren't authorized through Cisco, the answer is probably 'no'. Or, if the licenses are there, you're overpaying for "off the shelf" rates rather than getting a bundled deal.

Every piece of certified refurbished Cisco equipment comes with fully legal and up-to-date software licenses appropriate for the hardware. This comes straight from Cisco and, once again, brings with it all the support and warranty guarantees as factory-new hardware.

There's an increasing problem in computer hardware today of counterfeiting, especially counterfeits made in eastern countries with poor IP protections. In fact, a couple years ago, even the US Air Force discovered that such bootleg parts had made it into their own equipment!

Most buyers in the west are savvy enough to realize a $2,000 router being sold for $200 probably isn't the real deal... but not if it's offered as a ''used'' product. Then they'd have no good way at all to know whether it's genuine or not.

If you're looking to buy used Cisco equipment, there's truly no good reason to go to anyone but an authorized refurbished Cisco retailer. The prices are a small fraction of the original cost, and you get every bit of warranty support as you would when buying a new product.
