Cleaning and Cosmetic Restoration
We feel that refurbished equipment should not only function as if it were new, but it should also look like new which is why we have installed a professional spray booth at our refurbishment center.
The spray booth allows our engineers to produce an almost factory like finish on all items of equipment. Once the item is sprayed it is baked to remove the ‘just painted’ smell and produces a hard, quality finish that looks like ‘new’.
A final clean and inspection of the item ensures the quality of the finished product and any issues that are identified are resolved.
Initial Inspection and Equipment Selection
In order to provide the best we only select the best and each piece of equipment or module is subject to rigorous visual and functional inspection at our dedicated facility by our engineers.
We inspect each piece of equipment and look for things like physical damage, signs of misuse, previous repair and reject anything that is not up to our high standards.
The final stage of refurbishment is to reassemble the item and add any missing components such as blanking plates which maintains the airflow characteristics of the device. So that there can be no confusion we supply all of our refurbished equipment in plain packaging and include accessories such as rack mounts, console cables and patch leads.
Our strict QC process ensures that all the original accessories* are included in the box which means that you are never caught out during installation. * Excludes 3750 series stacking cables
When the item has passed our initial inspection it is tested to ensure that it functions to the original manufacturer’s specification. The type of tests performed by our engineers included:
- Switch ports – all individual ports on switches are tested
- Line card slots – all slots within a chassis based switches are tested
- Router module slots –all module slots in a router are tested
- Router ports – all fixed ports on a router are tested
- Wireless – we test the functionality of the wireless radios
All previous configurations are removed from the devices which mean that you receive the item in the same functional state that it was in when it left the factory.
We produce test results for all of our products and upload them to the MytestLogs public portal which allows you to view them online. Simply visit www.mytestlogs.com and enter the serial number of your product to view the test results.
