Poll ran from 14th December to 4th February and asked “Would you consider using second hand or resale Network Equipment ?”.
So the answer is YES
From a total of 167 Votes, 139 people will consider using second hand equipment, that is, 84% of voters.
Which is interesting, because I would not have expected that many people to be in favour of using second hand equipment. I would guess the further examination is needed to determine the level of commitment. For example, would you purchase the Cisco Software Relicensing and then put the equipment back under maintenance ? Would you consider using the second hand equipment in mission critical areas, or only at the edge of your network ?
Let me know if you would like to see a more in-depth poll.
