Cisco announces the end-of-sale dates for the Cisco 3205 Wireless Mobile Interface Card (product IDs: C3205WMIC-K9 and C3205WMIC-TP-K9) for Europe. The Cisco 3205 WMIC supports 5.25-5.35 MHz and 5.470-5.725 MHz. European regulations mandate that all 802.11a/h products shipping into Europe on or after April 1, 2008, must be compliant with European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute specification EN 301893 v1.3.1 for Dynamic Frequency Selection. DFS is used for radar detection and avoidance in the 5 GHz band. The Cisco 3205 Wireless Mobile Interface Cards with product identification numbers C3205WMIC-K9 and C3205WMIC-TP-K9 do not support ETSI EN 301893 v1.3.1 for DFS version 1.3.1. Therefore, these versions of the Cisco 3205 Wireless Mobile Interface Card can no longer be sold in Europe effective April 1, 2008. Below is more information on end-of-life milestones and replacement products.
