There is no replacement available for the Cisco DPA 7600 Series Voice Mail Gateways at this time.
The Cisco DPA 7610 and DPA 7630 Voice Mail Gateways enable legacy voicemail equipment, specifically the Octel 200 and 300 (Serenade) and the Octel 250 and 350 (Aria) working with the Nortel Meridian 1 PBX and the Avaya Definity PBX, to connect to a Cisco Unified Communications system network. The manufacturer of these products announced their end of sale on June 30, 2005. Thus, Cisco can no longer offer support for this solution. Cisco Unified CallManager customers with Avaya/Octel or Nortel/Octel traditional voicemail systems are encouraged to migrate to Cisco Unity Voice Messaging. The Cisco Unity system supports several networking options to traditional voice messaging systems, including Audio Messaging Interchange Specification (AMIS), Voice Protocol for Internet Mail (VPIM) and the Cisco Unity Bridge for even tighter integration with Avaya/Octel voicemail systems. Alternatively, customers can support their traditional voicemail system through Simple Messaging Desktop Interface (SMDI) integration via a direct connection to a Cisco Unified CallManager server or using the Cisco VG248 Analog Voice Gateway.
Customers can use the Cisco Technology Migration Plan (TMP) to trade in products and receive credit toward the purchase of new Cisco equipment. For more information about Cisco TMP, go to: The Cisco TMP application requires all users to have a user ID.
Customers may be able to continue to purchase the end-of-sale product through Cisco' s Authorized Refurbished Equipment program. Refurbished units of the end-of-sale product are available in limited supply for sale in certain countries on a first-come, first-served basis.
