Product Migration Options

Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco uBR7246VXR Universal Broadband Router with the NPE-400 Network Processing Engine or the Cisco uBR7246VXR with NPE-G1. Information about this product can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/cable/ps2217/prod_pre_installation_guide09186a00801a3bdc.html.
To upgrade from the Cisco uBR7246 to the Cisco uBR7246VXR, most customers simply need to upgrade the I/O boot flash, chassis, and processor. In some instances, customers may need to upgrade their port adapters and Cisco IOS® Software. Customers can reuse existing line cards, I/O controller cards, and most port adapters. For detailed instructions to upgrade from a Cisco uBR7246 to a Cisco uBR7246VXR, refer to the "Upgrading to the Cisco uBR7246VXR Universal Broadband Router" technical document at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/cable/ps2217/prod_pre_installation_guide09186a00801a3bdc.html.

Cisco NPE-300 Processor for the Cisco uBR7246VXR

The recommended upgrade path for the Cisco NPE-300 is the Cisco NPE-400. The Cisco NPE-400 is the highest-performance processor in the Cisco uBR7200 Series. The Cisco NPE-400 is available only on the Cisco uBR7246VXR. The Cisco NPE-400 comes with a default SDRAM of 128 MB, while offering additional 256-MB and 512-MB SDRAM options.
Key benefits of the Cisco NPE-400 include:
· Increased processing power by approximately 25 percent over the Cisco NPE-300
· Improved price performance (the Cisco NPE-400 delivers improved performance at the Cisco NPE-300 list price of US$7,500)
· Improved processor modularity and upgradability
· Higher sustained throughput
Cisco uBR-MC12C Line Card for the Cisco uBR7200 Series and Associated Bundle
The recommended upgrade path for the Cisco uBR-MC12C line card is a higher-density line card such as the Cisco uBR-MC14C, Cisco uBR-MC16C, Cisco uBR-MC16S, Cisco uBR-MC28C, or Cisco uBR-MC28C-BNC line card.
The current Cisco uBR7223-MC12C bundle will no longer be orderable at the End-of-Sale date November 15, 2001. At this date, it is recommended that customers order the Cisco uBR7223-MC14C, Cisco uBR7223-MC14C/DC, Cisco uBR7223-MC16C, Cisco uBR7223-MC16S, or Cisco uBR7223-MC28C bundle.
Cisco Port Adapters for the Cisco uBR7200 Series and Cisco uBR7100 Series
Refer to Table 3: End-of-Life Port Adapters and Upgrade Options for End-of-Life port adapters and their upgrade options. For a few of the EoL port adapters, Cisco does not offer one-on-one replacement options. For this group of port adapters, Cisco does offer replacement products that provide similar functionality within the same connectivity group.
For detailed instructions on port adapter EoL and upgrade, refer to the "Verifying Port Adapter Compatibility" section in the "Upgrading to the Cisco uBR7246VXR Universal Broadband Router" technical document at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/cable/ps2217/prod_pre_installation_guide09186a00801a3bdc.html .
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: http://www.cisco.com/go/tradein/. The Cisco TMP application requires all users to have a Cisco.com user ID.
Customers may be able to continue to purchase the end-of-sale product through Cisco's Certified 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.
