Frequently Asked Questions
What can you do with old Cisco switches?

Basically, you have three main options with the used Cisco equipment you no longer use:

  1. Dispose of it/recycle it
  2. Repurpose it (i.e., using it on another system or network)
  3. Sell old Cisco equipment for extra cash, which may finance the upgrade

Which one is the best option for your used Cisco equipment? It depends on several key factors:

  • Condition: the only options available to you if the Cisco equipment is no longer functional are recycling and disposal. You can still sell Cisco networking equipment or use it for another purpose if it is still functional but not in perfect shape.
  •  Resale value: selling the Cisco equipment is undoubtedly a feasible choice if its resale value is still relatively high. If the Cisco equipment is in reasonably good condition but has a low resale value, you might be better off finding another use for it.
  • Replacement cost: selling Cisco networking equipment too soon when the replacement unit is still too costly could be a problem if you intend to upgrade the Cisco networking equipment unit with a newer model. It is advisable to hold off on selling the old Cisco equipment until the cost of the replacement equipment has decreased.


How to determine the value of old Cisco equipment?

Here are some of the most important factors to take into account when determining the resale value of your Cisco equipment, though the answer may change based on the kind of equipment you are looking to sell and other variables:

  • Age: the market price of equipment will decrease with age.
  • Condition: the cost of a "healthy" piece of gear will be higher than that of Cisco equipment that has functional or cosmetic flaws.
  • Newer model(s) available: when a direct replacement is released, the price of any equipment or technological assets generally drops (for example, the price of a used iPhone 12 will decrease as soon as the iPhone 13 is announced). In most cases, even for relatively old Cisco equipment, there won't be much of a price drop if no direct replacement has been released.
  • Rarity: the cost of obsolete equipment may increase if it is no longer sold (for collectors, for instance or if the equipment has specific applications).

There are other factors that could influence the cost of your gear, when you decide to sell used Cisco equipment; this is by no means an exhaustive list. 

Luckily, you can now easily find the average marketplace for a particular kind of Cisco equipment by just searching for comparable ones on websites like Amazon or eBay.


How can I sell my Cisco network switches?

Selling your used Cisco networking equipment and making extra money is a feasible option.

When it comes to selling your used Cisco equipment, you essentially have three options, though they may differ based on the type of equipment, where you live, and other variables.

  1. You have the most control over pricing and promoting your Cisco equipment when you find your own buyers on peer-to-peer marketplaces (like eBay), but it can be challenging to locate the right buyer who will purchase the products on your terms. Additionally, selling enterprise-grade Cisco equipment on these markets can be difficult.
  2. List your used Cisco networking gear up for sale on online classified platforms such as Amazon, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace. Compared to peer-to-peer marketplaces, these platforms usually make it easier to find buyers, but you'll have less control over the terms and prices you offer.
  3. Sell your used Cisco equipment to specialized IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) companies that buy used networking equipment and other IT assets. This is the fastest and easiest option for selling Cisco equipment, and you can still get a fair market value for your hardware when you sell it. These ITAD companies will also handle secure data erasure if your Cisco equipment holds regulated or sensitive data.


How to sell a Cisco switch?

In just a few easy steps, you can essentially sell your Cisco networking equipment, including hubs, routers, gateways, and so on:

Step 1: Evaluate the condition

To sell old Cisco equipment, you need to check the condition of the equipment (looking for flaws) as well as its operational efficiency. Verify if the Cisco equipment is still operating as intended. Be honest and make a list of any defects or imperfections you discover.

Step 2: Understand your equipment

After verifying that the Cisco equipment is operating as intended, the next stage is to ascertain the precise model of the gear in order to calculate its value.

The process should be quite simple if the equipment has a visible brand/model name or serial number on it.

Step 3: Take photos 

To show potential buyers your Cisco networking equipment, take photos of it

If the Cisco equipment has a serial number or model name displayed on it, be sure to note it down. Make sure that any equipment flaws are shown in the photos. 

Step 4: Find potential buyers

Find prospective buyers by advertising your equipment on classified websites, peer-to-peer networks, or by getting in touch with an ITAD expert business like Big Data Supply Inc.

Step 5: Packaging and shipping

Once you've found a buyer, then what's left is to package and ship the Cisco equipment you are selling to the buyer. Some ITAD companies may also offer to pick up your gear on your premises, especially if you are selling in bulk.
