E-waste: questions you need to be asking

As Sales Director at Aliter Networks, and as a company, we talk a lot about e-waste and the benefits of choosing refurbished IT to combat the issue downstream. But this is a reactive approach.

Unless your role involves dealing with network equipment or infrastructure, ‘the IT network’ is often regarded as something that just hums along in the background. Nobody really takes notice because...well, it’s not the ‘sexiest’ field. It’s not often the hot topic on the agenda.Until it is...

A decision largely influenced by OEMs, which typically have different priorities than sustainably-minded organisations.
