Some OC48 line cards were manufactured with incorrect discrete components which could affect long-term reliability.
BackgroundA problem at a contract manufacturer caused some incorrect components to be installed. Engineering has determined that this may affect the long-term reliability of the line cards.
Only line cards within the above serial number range are affected. Line cards outside the above serial number range are not affected.
Problem SymptomsNo specific failure symptoms are apparent. Rather, the long-term reliability of the line cards may be affected.
Workaround/SolutionThe solution for this problem is to replace the defective hardware.
