What is the green market?
Introducing the green telecom market
The green market (also known as the ‘secondary telecoms market’ or the ‘used telecommunications market’) is the distribution of refurbished, used, recycled, or discontinued products that are in good working condition. In some cases the items are completely new but just pre-owned. They are sold through resellers such as TXO, and sometimes through the original equipment manufacturers.
The green market is absolutely necessary for the maintenance of current systems that are in need of replacement parts that have either been discontinued, the manufacturer has gone out of business or in cases where availability is constrained and parts are hard-to-find. It is also a major resource when a hardware or telecom network component failure occurs because it’s often quicker and costs less to replace a part rather than it is to repair (although we have specialist expertise in this area also).
The negative effects of over producing new electronics products and disposing rather than utilising existing telecoms equipment has been recognised as ecologically hazardous. Buying green market products is therefore not only very cost effective, but more environmentally responsible than continually replacing network systems with new equipment.
Such concepts are gaining traction globally with organisations such as the European Union setting ambitious targets for re-use among members as part of its framework to develop a more sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient circular economy.
Take a first step & discover the value in your used telecoms equipment
Here at TXO, we are specialists in recovering new and used telecoms equipment for re-use or resale, providing a lower cost and sustainable alternative to buying new goods from standard distribution channels. Product quality is extremely important to us. Every item we resell goes through our telecom refurbishment process to restore it to good working condition and make it look as good as new.
We have found that many companies have storerooms full of obsolete, legacy, or abandoned gear that is taking up valuable space and is a logistical challenge to catalogue and dispose of. In other cases out of service hardware may still be consuming power and climate control resources.
TXO has a telecom asset recovery solution designed to meet any brief. We deliver both sustainability and commercial objectives. Other benefits are that storage space can be used more effectively for other projects and overhead is not allocated to the storage of items that realistically will never be used.
From the initial opportunity analysis through to telecoms parts sortation, tracking and resale, we will work with you to create a turnkey telecom network asset recovery program to suit your individual requirements and achieve the highest possible return.
