MULTI-LINK Communications Products (MLCP) Launches Campaign to Purchase Used IT Hardware

January 13, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Torrance, CA January 13, 2009 With demand on the rise for used IT Hardware, MULTI-LINK Communications Products (MLCP) is launching its first ever massive global campaign to purchase used IT hardware from a variety of sources including small & medium sized businesses, Telcos, ISPs, IT Outsourcing and leasing companies. MLCP, known for being the leading alternative provider of Cisco equipment, also buys used IT hardware manufactured by Foundry, Juniper, and Extreme, among others.

"The downturn in the economy has created a huge demand for refurbished IT hardware," says Eric Tanaka, Director of Communications for MLCP. "People are seeing how much money they can save their businesses by buying used equipment from us. But what they don't always realize is that they can also benefit financially by selling their surplus equipment to us." And Tanaka is correct about the kind of savings a company can expect to see by not only taking advantage of MULTI-LINK's generous trade-in credits by selling MLCP its used equipment, but then purchasing refurbished hardware. Depending on the IT hardware you need, you may be able to save up to 98% off the manufacturer's list price, although for most, a savings of 40% - 75% is more common. If you're not in the market for new equipment and just want to unload your surplus hardware, it's important to know that MLCP also pays cash. You can sell them your used equipment without making a purchase at all.

"The sudden surge in demand for used IT hardware has been great for us, but it's literally exhausted much of our on-site inventory-especially Cisco routers, switches, and telephony equipment. And we boast one of the largest inventories of used Cisco products in the United States," says Tanaka. "The last thing we want to do is to have to go hunt down a product for a customer who is in crisis mode and needs the equipment right away because their business has come to a halt without it. Even qty requirements for seemingly ubiquitous equipment, such as an everyday Cisco transceiver, are needed. We need to have products tested, refurbished, and ready to ship. It's one of the reasons that MLCP has the reputation it does for being a reliable, customer service-oriented provider of used IT hardware. And we're willing to pay well for surplus equipment in order to stay there."

That was the thinking behind what could be the largest global campaign to purchase surplus equipment of its kind. MLCP is currently putting out the word that they are in immediate need of a variety of Cisco hardware products. MULTI-LINK is prepared to purchase nearly every model of Cisco routers, especially the following models: CISCO2811, CISCO2821, the Cisco 3800 Series routers and insert-modules (e.g. NM-1T3/E3, HWIC-'s, etc.) In addition to surplus Cisco routers, MLCP is prepared to pay top dollar for the following used Cisco switches as well: Catalyst 3560, 3750, 4507R, 6509-E and, of course, the insert-bladesf. MULTI-LINK is also in need of all models of used Cisco IP Telephony in the 7900 series as well as several other IP Telephony products.

"We always encourage customers to buy used IT equipment from us," explains Kristin Cox of MLCP, "but right now, we really need people to understand that we're the ones in a crunch here. We need their surplus IT equipment if we want to continue to provide the level of customer service that our customers are used to." With the plea out to the public, if you've been considering an upgrade in your IT architecture, now may be the perfect time for you to sell your used surplus, get the maximum possible return on your equipment, and upgrade at significantly discounted prices. You can find out if MLCP is interested in purchasing your surplus equipment by going to their website at Simply fill-out the form on the 'Sell Us Your Surplus' page with the model numbers of the surplus equipment you'd like to sell. MLCP will give you a no-obligation estimate quickly and easily.
