Reuse Telecom Equipment Solves Product Shortage June 7, 2010Posted by telmarnetworks in : Certified Pre-Owned Telecom Equipment, Repair, Technical Training, Telecom Network Support, telecommunications, Telmar Network Technology, Uncategorized , trackback
It’s not a secret anymore that there’s a component shortage which is having a hard impact on telecom product deliveries to carriers around the world.
As Light Reading reported, the shortage has resulted in delays in filling orders to the world’s largest systems vendors, as well as other DWDM vendors. And in some cases, the shortage has resulted in filling orders to carriers. Not only has this affected their capability to manufacture and ship existing products, but has also delayed testing and qualification of new products.
Reuters reported that some components may not be available until 2011.
Since carriers can’t afford to not maintain their networks or expand or enhance their technology to meet their end users’ needs, reuse telecom equipment is a solution available immediately. Reuse telecom equipment offers a solution that carriers can immediately tap into for products and systems they need to manage their wireline or wireless networks. Telmar’s certified pre-owned products and our own line of Telmar Extended Life products offer a cost-effective solution to a carrier’s needs.
Our pre-owned products not only cost 30-70% less than new products or from other resellers, but each product is fully inspected and tested both in-bound and out-bound, certified, contains a unique warranty tracking label, and is sold with a multi-year Telmar warranty.
Carriers don’t have to sacrifice reliability or quality, as Telmar’s reuse equipment has 99.9999% reliability with lower downtime (0.0037 days/5.26 minutes).
As an OEM, Telmar has acquired 23 product lines from Alcatel, and sustains these products through continued manufacturing, custom R&D and long-term support services. Our Extended Life product family includes SONET multiplexers, optical amplifiers, cross connects, optical gateways and DACs.
Instead of purchasing equipment, Telmar can also help carriers extend the life of their products and maintain quality of service through our multi-vendor repair services. Our turnaround time is 15 days, and if you had an amergency, we can pull product out of our inventory for a one-day delivery.
