EOL4079, Amended

Cisco Systems® announces the end-of-sale and end-of life dates for the Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway. The last day to order the Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway is December 22, 2006. Customers with active service contracts will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) as shown in Table 1 of the EoL bulletin.

Table 1 describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for the Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway. Table 2 lists the product part numbers affected by this announcement.
Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco AS5400XM Universal Gateway. The Cisco AS5400XM Universal Gateway provides twice the performance of the Cisco AS5400 and delivers significant memory enhancements to offer high performance and high reliability in a compact modular design. The high-density packet voice feature card (AS5X-FC) and DSP module (AS5X-PVDM2-64) available for the Cisco AS5400XM Universal Gateway enable higher-density configurations (up to 1 Channelized T3 [CT3] of voice over IP [VoIP]) and world-class performance for intelligent packet voice services. The Cisco AS5400XM can meet service provider and enterprise session-border-controller (SBC) requirements through support for the Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway, an integrated Cisco IOS® Software application that facilitates simple and cost-effective connectivity between independent VoIP and video networks. The Cisco AS5400XM Universal Gateway also supports existing Cisco AS5400 PSTN trunk termination and universal port DSP feature cards in a more powerful chassis to help ensure continuing network investment protection. This cost-effective platform is ideally suited for service provider and enterprise environments that require innovative voice, fax, and data services.
