About Us

Where Novia Networks Came From

A NOVA is loosely defined as, “A sudden increase in the brightening of a star”. This sounded appropriate to us in 2008 when we were launching this new & exciting business model for the used and refurbished IT hardware industry. After researching further, we came to agreement that NOVIA would be the name of this new solution that was needed desperately in order to ensure a quality product to the end user.

At Novia Networks, we strive hard to increase the brightness of doing business when dealing with used networking hardware. We only offer quality products at great prices to our customers and now offer our end user clients many benefits, such as a LIFETIME HARDWARE WARRANTY on all Cisco products, plus strong warranties for many other manufacturers. Our products are fully thoroughly tested, refurbished to look and work like new, then sold at a fraction of the cost for new products.

Specializing In Used Network Hardware

We specialize in buying and selling used network hardware from these manufacturers: F5, Juniper, Cisco, HP, Avaya / Nortel, DELL / Force 10, Extreme, 3COM, Zhone, and others. When you put your trust in NOVIA, rest assured you will not only receive great looking and working products, and we’ll back it up better than anyone in the industry!

And we are not going to stop there…….looking further out, we have a few more innovate ideas on the drawing board to bring to the industry, and as a valued end user customer, you’ll be the first to hear about these as we release them!

Thanks a million for visiting today! We look forward to the chance to EARN your continuing business! Be sure to include us when next you have a need for used Network Hardware!
