Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for the Cisco Transport Manager Releases 4.1,4.6,4.7,and 5.0 is the Cisco Transport Manager 6.0. The recommended replacement for the Cisco Transport Manager Release 7.0 is the Cisco Transport Manager Release 7.2 or the current GA release of Cisco Transport Manager. Before upgrading Cisco Transport Manager, always check that the new release supports the release of network elements to be managed. This can be seen in the release notes, available at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/opticsw/ps2204/prod_release_notes_list.html. Network element right-to-use (RTU) licenses do not need to be upgraded as they are release-independent. RTU licenses that were purchased for Cisco Transport Manager Releases 4.1,4.6,4.7,5.0 and 7.0 are still valid for Cisco Transport Manager Release 6.0 and 7.2. New RTU licenses can be purchased for additional network elements that are added to the network. Some block RTUs are in the end-of-life process; however, single-license RTUs are still available for ordering. Customers who have a current Software Application Support and Upgrades (SASU) contract can use the Product Upgrade Tool (PUT) to get the software upgrade: http://tools.cisco.com/gct/Upgrade/jsp/index.jsp. If Cisco Transport Manager Release 6.0 or Cisco Transport Manager Release 7.2 does not manage the release of the network elements in the network, your option is to also upgrade the network elements to a version that is supported by Cisco Transport Manager Release 6.0 or 7.2. Please check the release notes to ensure the Cisco Transport Manager release and the network element release match: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/opticsw/ps2204/prod_release_notes_list.html.
Customers can use the Cisco Technology Migration Plan (TMP) to trade in products and receive credit toward the purchase of new Cisco equipment. For more information about Cisco TMP, go to: http://www.cisco.com/go/tradein/. The Cisco TMP application requires all users to have a Cisco.com user ID.
Customers may be able to continue to purchase the end-of-sale product through Cisco's Authorized Refurbished Equipment program. Refurbished units of the end-of-sale product are available in limited supply for sale in certain countries on a first-come, first-served basis.
