Alternative Cisco Provider MLCP Emerges as Leader in Cisco Memory Components

Torrance, CA May 12, 2009 MULTI-LINK Communications Products (MLCP) emerged this past month as the leader in new, third party and Cisco-approved Memory component sales. The company, which formed in 1995, has been steadily growing, providing both small companies and large corporations with alternative Cisco hardware at significant cost savings for the buyer. "We offer Cisco-approved and third party memory at a fraction of the price of other suppliers including Cisco. And our warranty is better than Cisco's-we offer a lifetime guarantee on all memory components we sell. Take for example the MEM-S2-512MB (memory for the 6500 series). We offer that product, new, for $165 on special. The manufacturer's retail price is $9,600. That's a savings of 98% on a brand new memory product and we promise to replace it if there's ever a defect— ever. There's simply no reason to pay more when you can get the same thing-or, better— for so much less," explains Eric Tanaka, President of MULTI-LINK Communications.

Most businesses feel pressured to buy memory components directly from Cisco because they fear that purchasing third party or Cisco-approved products from an alternate provider like MLCP, will either negate their warranty or their SmartNet service and maintenance agreements. That's simply not true. "Buying third party or Cisco-approved memory won't affect Cisco's maintenance agreement at all. Should something go wrong with a product purchased from us, we will replace it under warranty and Cisco will continue to honor the agreement on the parts purchased from them," Tanaka says.

But MLCP doesn't just focus on Memory products. They're also a leader in new and refurbished equipment and accessories including routers, telephony, switches, cables and more. Purchasing new or refurbished can save companies hundreds to thousands of dollars.
With such a significant cost savings and the reliability of a standard one year warranty (even a Lifetime warranty on some of MLCP's products), it's easy to see why the popularity of this company has soared. Most of MLCP's customers begin by contacting MULTI-LINK during a crisis. "Usually, they [new customers] contact us in a panic. Their system has melted down or been attacked and they either can't afford the new product they need, can't find the product because Cisco has discontinued it, or the lead time on shipping is so long, they can't afford to have their business interrupted for several days waiting for something to be located and shipped. That's where we come in. We have thousands of products in stock, ready to ship same day. Our inventory is one of the largest I.T. equipment inventories in North America."
Although most new customers are forced to try MLCP in a crisis, they quickly realize that the cost savings, customer service, and shorter lead times for the same reliable new or used product, makes good business sense. And that's when they become lifelong customers.

MLCP provides I.T. equipment to small local companies as well as huge international corporations. They also purchase used equipment and give credit toward the purchase of new or refurbished equipment further protecting investment and reducing I.T. costs.

If you're in the market for Cisco, Juniper, Foundry, or other new or refurbished PoE equipment, it's worth it to take a look and see if an alternate provider like MLCP can exceed your expectations and save you money at the same time.
