Quality Control

Fully port tested. Ready to deploy.

We take network equipment quality very seriously. Our goal is to deliver you 100% functional network equipment. When you purchase refurbished networking equipment from Terabit Systems, rest assured it has been thoroughly tested. Here’s an overview of out 5-step network equipment testing process we use at Terabit Systems.

  1. Physical Inspection Every networking router, switch and load balancer is carefully inspected to check for any physical issues that would affect functionality. We inspect connectors, heat-sinks, faceplates, buttons, latches etc. for damage. Some items are rejected outright at this stage, and removed from the product pool.
  2. Functional Testing At this step networking gear is run through applicable testing. Switches are run through their POST (power-on-self-test), and any errors noted. Log files are checked for error messages, fans and power supplies are tested, and port testing is begun. Traffic is passed through all ports at wire speed by putting the device on our test network featuring state-of-the-art LANforge software up to 10GB/Sec. Whenever possible, built-in diagnostic commands are executed. Modules are run in chassis, and again, checked for normal function. Optical transceivers have traffic passed through them before being passed.
  3. Factory Defaults We restore settings to factory default on all used routers, switches, and load balancers. All passwords and configurations are removed, and firmware is updated whenever possible. The equipment is made ready to use out of the box, just like it would be if new from the manufacturer.
  4. Cosmetic Refurbishment Networking equipment that has passed the first 3 steps is wiped clean and dusted. Some casings may be repainted if significant scratches are present. Fans, heat sinks, and components are blown off to remove dust.
  5. Final Quality Control and Kitting of Networking Equipment Gear passing the first four steps are given a final QC check, kitted out with any applicable accessories (rack mounts, power cord, console cable, PDF’s etc.), and sent into our warehouse inventory – available for sale. Once ordered, networking product is pulled and professionally packed for safe transit using the best methods and materials available. We realize how rough transit can be, and take every precaution to ensure items are fully protected.

Simply put, we deliver the best quality networking equipment (routers, switches, and load balancers) possible, to ensure a completely hassle free experience.

Not that you'll ever need it.

Not only do we deliver top quality equipment that is fully tested, we stand behind that equipment with our generous warranty coverage.

Used Network Hardware

  • Sell your Networking Equipment to Us! We provide you comprehensive support during all phases of the process, including asigning value, installing, packing, logistics and shipping. You will work hand-in hand with our trained IT professionals and ensure that the process as streamlined and easy as possible.
  • Lower your TCO (total cost of ownership) For many companies the added revenue from selling IT assets, rather than recycling, can help turn depreciated assets into working capital. This extends your IT budget and fuels growth.
  • Let’s build a better planet together To reuse “greener” than to recycle . We help you extend the useful life of desposed hardware, minimizing e-waste and the added pollution caused by the processing and deconstruction of salvageable IT assets. By circumventing traditional eCycling channel, no additional fossil fuels are required for processing and thus no new carbon is released into the atmosphere. This makes remarketing a carbon-neutral process.
