What is Cisco Refresh?
Published 5th May 2017, updated January 2020.
Cisco Refresh is not just about purchasing remanufactured equipment; it’s an entirely new and cost effective way of leveraging Cisco products.
Cisco Refresh products are fully re-manufactured by Cisco. That means when you receive your equipment it is Cisco Certified. Cisco Refresh products also include accessories as you would expect from any Cisco Certified product. That gives you peace of mind as Cisco ensures that all critical engineering upgrades are carried out and offer the same warranty as new. Also, all Cisco Refresh products are SmartNet eligible. Cisco Refresh carries over 4000 products and are bringing more in each week.
These items don’t just consist of older, end of sale products; Cisco Refresh also carries current, latest generation products across all technology areas.
Cisco Refresh Quality Standards
Cisco employs the industry’s most comprehensive and proprietary manufacturing process. From initial inspection and testing to cleaning and packing only Cisco, the original manufacturer, can truly remanufacture to the same level that they do.
