EoL Q&A

Q. Does the Cisco Universal Gateway Manager replace the Cisco SC3640 System Controller?
A. The Cisco SC3640 is not needed with Cisco UGM. Unlike Cisco Access Manager, Cisco UGM doesn't require the Cisco SC3640 for management.
Q. Can I reuse the Cisco SC3640?
A. Because the Cisco SC3640 is a Cisco IOS ® Software device, you may choose to redeploy it as a Cisco 3600 Series Router by loading a standard Cisco IOS Software image.
