END-OF-LIFE NOTICE, NO. 2600
Cisco Systems ® announces the end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for the Cisco ® uBR10012 LCP2 Line Card Processor and Universal Broadband Router (uBR) cable line card assemblies for the Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router. The last day to order the Cisco uBR10-LCP2 Line Card Processor and all uBR line card assemblies is March 31, 2005. Customers with active service contracts will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) until March 31, 2010. Table 1 describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for the Cisco uBR10-LCP2 Line Card Processor and assemblies. Table 2 lists the product part numbers affected by this announcement.
Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco 5x20U Broadband Processing Engine (BPE), which features 5 downstream modulators, 5 upconverters, and 20 upstream burst receivers on a single line card that embeds the most advanced RF capabilities. This Cisco BPE features a highly integrated and robust RF front-end and the industry's most advanced processing engine for DOCSIS ® networks supporting 6 MHz operations, 8 MHz Euro-DOCSIS operations, or extended frequency range support for DOCSIS operations in Japan (J-DOCSIS). Information about the replacement product can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps4969/prod_module_series_home.html. Table 3 provides relevant information for migrating from the Cisco uBR10-LCP2 Line Card Processor and assemblies to the Cisco 5x20U Broadband Processing Engine.
