Pre-Owned, Used And Refurbished Cisco NM-32A

The Cisco NM-32A is a 32-port asynchronous (async) network module that provides 32 EIA/TIA-232 (formerly know as RS-232) data terminal equipment (DTE) serial interfaces at speeds up to 134.4 kbps using the 68-pin OCTAL Cables such as the CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC= and CAB-OCTAL-MODEM=. The NM-32A module is often used to provide out of band connectivity to the console ports of other devices in a comm/terminal server setup. The NM-32A, along with the lower performing 16-port version (NM-16A) supports a max of three modules per Cisco 3640, one per Cisco 3620, and one per Cisco 2600.

Our extensive NM-32A inventory provides for quick order turn-around, often allowing us to ship "same day" or within just 1-2 business days. What's more? As an independent supplier, we are able to offer more equipment options than are available through distribution, including new, used and refurbished NM-32A. In some instances, our pre-owned equipment may still be in new condition, still sealed in original factory packaging (but at a fraction of the cost).

MLCP is committed to quality, and we guaranty any refurbished Cisco NM-32A purchase with our standard lifetime warranty. All used NM-32A equipment is tested to factory specifications and packaged professionally for safe transport. As an experienced supplier of pre-owned network hardware, we understand that we have to be better than the manufacturer, and that fundamental principle guides us every day.

Is your interest in the NM-32A as a result of an upgrade? We may be interested in your surplus networking equipment and encourage you to take advantage of our flexible "buy-back" options, including an up-front purchase option and generous trade-ins for credit.
