SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CXtec®, a provider of information technology equipment, is expanding its standard lifetime warranty to include all equal2new® refurbished voice and networking equipment effective today. The warranty also provides first year advance replacement.

"We are so confident in the quality of our certified refurbished gear that we expanded our warranty to include all equal2new voice and networking equipment, with first year advance replacement, as standard business practice," says Frank Kobuszewski, VP of Technology Solutions Group at CXtec.

CXtec introduced equal2new as the industry's first certified pre-owned hardware brand in 1995. Recognized brands such as Cisco®, HP®, Nortel®, 3Com®, Avaya® and Mitel® can all be purchased equal2new.

All equal2new pre-owned hardware, including switches, routers and business phones, undergo a rigorous certification process – from receiving, testing, quality control and shipping. The certification process takes place in an 85,000 square-foot, ISO 9001:2008 certified, ESD-protected facility in Syracuse, New York.

Given the current economic climate, Kobuszewski sees equal2new as a way for customers to stay within their budget without sacrificing quality.

"For over 15 years, CXtec has helped customers save on their IT infrastructure by providing the highest quality refurbished information technology equipment on the market," says Kobuszewski. "The expansion of our standard equal2new warranty simply enhances our abilities to better serve and support our customers' IT infrastructure needs."
