Product Migration Options

Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules with XL Option. Information about this product can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9402/products_data_sheets_list.html.
Benefits of the Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules with XL Option include the following:

Features and functions: Features and functions are equivalent to those of the non-XL version modules. Customers can enable a larger table size through the Scalable Feature license when needed. The Scalable Feature license is not required to operate the Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules with XL Option.

Ease of sparing: Use of a single common hardware base reduces the need to stock multiple versions of a module in depots and in partner and customer environments.

Upgrade in place: Customers can defer costs using the flexible chassis license to upgrade an entire system when needed without having to upgrade the hardware or replace the modules.

Simplified ordering: Customers can purchase one module with the knowledge that should they later need to use larger forwarding tables because of a change in design or scaling, the hardware will be ready.

Flexible deployment: The same module can be deployed in all environments and configured correctly, either with or without the license to enable the incremental feature.

The Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules with XL Option can operate without a Scalable Feature license (non-XL mode). When the Scalable Feature license is installed, the modules will operate in XL mode with larger table enabled (up to 1 million IPv4 routes).
The Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules with XL Option require Cisco NX-OS 5.x or above. Please refer to the data sheets for minimum NX-OS release requirements. The non-XL modules are compatible with Cisco NX-OS 5.x and 6.x releases and will continue to operate as normal when the system is upgraded to these NX-OS releases to support the XL modules.
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 Selected Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O Modules (Non-XL Version Only) through the Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment program. Refurbished units may be available in limited supply for sale in certain countries on a first-come, first-served basis until the Last Date of Support has been reached. For information about the Cisco Certified Refurbished Equipment program, go to: http://www.cisco.com/go/eos
Service prices for Cisco products are subject to change after the product End of Sale date.
