PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 3119

Cisco Systems® announces the end-of-support dates for the Cisco® Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) software image on the Cisco ATA 186 and ATA 188 analog telephone adaptors. The last day to download the affected software is April 1, 2007.

Customers are encouraged to migrate to either the Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) or Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) software images for the Cisco ATA 186 and ATA 188 analog telephone adaptors or to one of the Linksys IP endpoints that is better suited for the service provider, small office, or home office market. Information about replacement products can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/gatecont/ps514/index.html and http://www.linksys.com. Table 3 provides relevant information for migrating to the replacement product.
This announcement does not signal the end of life or end of sale of the Cisco ATA 186 and ATA 188 analog telephone adaptors; it only announces the end of support of one of four signaling protocols supported on these devices.
