PRODUCT MIGRATION OPTIONS

The recommended replacement for the 6-port T3 line card for the Cisco 7304 with DSU and 6-port E3 line card for the Cisco 7300 with DSU are the 2-port Clear Channel T3/E3 SPA or the 4-port Clear Channel T3/E3 SPA (Table 3). The Cisco Clear Channel T3/E3 SPAs for the Cisco 7304 Router and the Cisco 7600 and 12000 series routers offer high-density, highly manageable T3/E3 line connectivity and termination. With integrated line-interface DSUs that allow T3/E3 lines to be directly terminated on a Cisco Systems router, the Cisco Clear Channel T3/E3 SPAs simplify T3/E3 line management, reduce provisioning costs, and make valuable rack space available.
