Hardware Lifecycle Management

Our structured approach to network hardware management implements an asset-based approach that maximizes performance and cost efficiencies.

One way that Layer 3 offers customers professional IT and networking solutions is by specializing in providing new, used and refurbished data, telecom and wireless equipment to clients at significant savings.  Examples of the product lines we deal with include ADC, Adtran, AFC, Alcatel, Calix, Cisco, Extreme, Fujitsu, Juniper, Motorola, Nortel, Occam, Telect, and Tellabs.

Layer 3 is unique because we are also a voice and data solutions provider. Our trained Engineers and Technicians have experience implementing security, QoS and bandwidth management, WAN optimization, VoIP, PBX, network management among other solutions.

Industry Knowledge

Layer 3 has a variety of custom designed programs that are tailored to compliment your networking needs. This includes:

  • Site installations and decommissions
  • Consignment and Trade-in/Trade-up programs that help with lifecycle management of key equipment

when applicable.

Free-Cycle Program

The amount of worldwide E-Waste generation is expected to be 49.8 million tons in 2018 with an annual 4-5 percent growth. Currently, only 15-20 percent of all e-waste is recycled, and roughly 80 percent of E-Waste generated in the U.S. is exported to Asia, a trade flow that is a source of considerable controversy. A large number of what is labeled as “e-waste” is actually not waste at all, but rather whole electronic equipment or parts that are readily marketable for reuse or can be recycled for materials recovery.

While all equipment at Layer 3 Technologies is recycled appropriately, we have decided to embark on a new mission to reduce our footprint even more.

Starting 10/01/2018, before we recycle working equipment, we will create a list of this gear and make it available to anyone who still has use for it. All we ask is that you pay shipping and a very minimal fee to cover packing materials. No cost pick-up of equipment is also available to those who are local.

If you are interested in receiving these lists before they are posted, please contact us and we will add you to our mailing list. Otherwise, these lists can be found here on our website, or on our LinkedIn page click here

If you have equipment that is still functional and you would like to join us in reducing your footprint, please reach out. We are happy to help you find a new home for your old equipment.

Currently Available Free-Cycle Equipment

At this time we have roughly 150 NEW Cisco Linksys RTP300 VoIP Broadband Routers. Please contact us if you are interested in rehoming these units.
