We have worked with Afinitek for 4 years and have bought Cisco equipment from them for customer projects we are working on. So when one of our large public sector clients came to us to ask us to support their Cisco environment of over 70 devices we employed the Caretek service from Afinitek. Caretek enables us access to Cisco software updates which we deploy to all devices and in the event of a device failure we know a replacement will be sent direct to our customer site within the SLA timeframe we signed up to. Total piece of mind at the right price.
The Caretek support gave us peace of mind in extending the life of our hosting platform when we migrated from one data centre to another. We had an occasion to call out an engineer to replace a failed hard drive. The call was handled promptly and professionally and well within the SLA, It enabled our hosted environment to continue running. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Caretek, It’s a great service and very sensibly priced.
We have purchased several Cartetek support packages for our clients networks. It would be impossible for us to hold stock of all the parts that make up the networks we support so really like the fact that we know replacement parts will be sent when we report a fault. It allows us to focus on what we do best which is supporting the customer and not sourcing replacement parts. We like the fact we can buy IT hardware from Afinitek too, it keeps everything all under one roof.
Afinitek always provides the most competitive costs for our HP requirements, combined with an excellent service and prompt deliveries enables us to repeatedly win business and exceed our customers expectations.
Cisco wholesale is a new venture from Cisco Capital, designed to give customers access to genuine Cisco equipment at greatly reduced cost.
Cisco Wholesale was launched in 2013 to manage a large global inventory derived from a variety of sources. This inventory is sourced from factory overruns, stock rotations and cancelled orders.
Cisco Wholesale covers the entire Cisco portfolio, including all categories for switches, routers, firewalls, telecoms, Nexus, UCS and datacentre.
Cisco Wholesale is available in two distinct grades:
Cisco re-boxed is NOT refurbished equipment. It has not previously been allocated to customers or been deployed. Cisco operates a separate program ‘Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment’ (CCRE) under which it manages ex user equipment which has been returned from customer environments.
All Cisco Wholesale is Genuine Cisco manufactured equipment and comes with the same benefits as New retail equipment:
In addition to the above benefits, Cisco Wholesale also ships with the latest software images and updates.
