END-OF-LIFE NOTICE, NO. 503

INTRODUCTION

This Product Bulletin covers the issues associated with the End-of-Sale of the Cisco ® 1020 Asynchronous Router. The last order date for the Cisco 1020 is October 15, 1996.
The Cisco 1020 first shipped in April 1995. With the recent release of asynchronous dial-on-demand routing software feature sets for the Cisco 1005 Router, demand for the Cisco 1020 has declined sufficiently that it no longer makes sense to offer the Cisco 1020. The Cisco 1005 is an appropriate substitute for the Cisco 1020 (see next page).
This document includes information about which products are affected, availability, and maintenance, as well as substitute products.

PRODUCT SUBSTITUTION

The Cisco 1005 is an appropriate substitute for the Cisco 1020. Like the Cisco 1020, the Cisco 1005 provides Ethernet-to-asynchronous-WAN connectivity; in addition, the 1005 can be upgraded to support leased lines, X.25, Frame Relay, SMDS, and Switched-56. Unlike the Cisco 1020, however, the Cisco 1005 does not support PCMCIA modems nor a potential second asynchronous WAN connection. The Cisco 1005 asynchronous IOS ® Software feature sets support IP and IPX routing, as well as significant ease-of-use, security, and management functionality. The Cisco 1005's serial port has a "5-in-1" DB-60 connector which supports X.21, V.35, EIA/TIA-232, EIA/TIA-449, and EIA-530 physical interfaces (using optional cables).
