Upgrade Path

Customers who are running an older version of Cisco Transport Manager and wish to upgrade to Cisco Transport Manager 8.5 should use one of the Cisco Transport Manager Upgrade Kits.
Existing node right-to-use (RTU) licenses and client licenses are still valid as these are release independent. Additional licenses need be purchased only when new nodes are being added to the network or additional clients are required.

Availability

Cisco Transport Manager 8.5 will begin shipping December 14, 2007. Customers can place orders through their normal sales channels beginning December 7, 2007. Existing Cisco Transport Manager customers with unexpired Cisco Software Application Support plus Upgrades (SASU) contracts can upgrade to Release 8.5 using the Cisco Product Upgrade Tool at www.cisco.com/upgrade.
Starting with Cisco Transport Manager 7.0, only the Cisco Software Application Support (SAS) contract is available.

Ordering Information

Cisco Transport Manager is made up of the base media kit, additional optional functional components (Gateway/CORBA and High Availability), and client and network element RTU licenses. Table 2 lists the part numbers and descriptions associated with Cisco Transport Manager 8.5.
