Timing is key for a contracted systems integrator for a major international US bank, this company installs IT systems for their client’s ATM machines and other electronic payment services, including bank statement printers, self-service terminals, cash register systems and networks.
ATM machines need to be connected 24/7, 365 days per year, and the router is the key element that keeps everything up and running. To meet their US client’s needs, the company needed to find high quality, budget-friendly integrated services routers. For safe operations of an ATM, 3G routers suffice, so the desire was to source the Cisco 800 3G wireless series. Unfortunately, these were discontinued and replaced by a 4G model at a significantly higher price point.
Fortunately, because Aliter works with second hand equipment, we were able to refurbish Cisco 800 3G routers and guarantee their supply to the systems integrator.
The routers turned out to be a perfect solution for the company – from both a quality and performance perspective, as well as an economic standpoint.
The refurbished products
> 1000 Cisco 800 Series (3G wireless) integrated services routers
The difference we made
• Established a long lasting, trustworthy business relationship
• Provided high quality refurbished IT networking equipment with lifetime guarantee
• Saved the company €350.000 over the course of 5 years
• The use of refurbished equipment prevented over 1000kg e-waste.
"It is great to save such a large amount of money, but with the line of work we are in, performance and reliability are even more important.
Since working with Aliter Networks, we’ve only had to replace one single 3G card out of approximately 1000 of the routers we’ve purchased.
This speaks for the quality that they deliver."
