Although the Cisco MDS 9124 Multilayer Fabric Switch is being discontinued, the existing On-Demand Port Activation Software Licenses (spares) are not entering the end-of-life and end-of-sale process as part of this announcement. Customers will continue to be able to order these "License in a Box" products (part numbers M9124PLx-xxGx=) and the "Electronic e-Delivery" products (part numbers L-M9124PLx-xxG=) to upgrade existing installed Cisco MDS 9124 units at end-user locations worldwide.
Customers may be able to use the Cisco Technology Migration Program (TMP) where applicable to trade-in eligible products and receive credit toward the purchase of new Cisco equipment. For more information about Cisco TMP, customers should work with their Cisco Partner or Cisco account team. Cisco Partners can find additional TMP information on Partner Central at http://www.cisco.com/web/partners/incentives_and_promotions/tmp.html
Customers may be able to continue to purchase the Cisco MDS 9124 Multilayer Fabric Switch through the Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment program.
