Hardware Supported

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)YH supports the following Cisco 1700 series routers:

Cisco 1720 Routers

Cisco 1721 Router

Cisco 1750, 1750-2V, and 1750-4V Routers

Cisco 1751 and 1751-V Routers

Cisco 1760 and 1760-V Routers

The Cisco 1720, and 1721 routers run data images only. The Cisco 1750, 1750-2V, and 1750-4V routers run data or data-and-voice images, providing analog voice support. Cisco 1751, 1751-V, 1760, and 1760-V routers run data or data-and-voice images, providing digital and analog voice support.

For detailed descriptions of new hardware features and which features are supported on each router, see the "New and Changed Information" section. For descriptions of existing hardware features and supported modules, see the hardware installation guides, configuration and command reference guides, and additional documents specific to Cisco 1700 series routers, which are available on Cisco.com and the Documentation CD at the following location:

Determining Your Software Release

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software currently running on your Cisco 1700 series router, log in to the router and enter the show version EXEC command. The following sample output from the show version command indicates the version number on the second output line:

router> show version
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) C1700 Software (C1700-Y-MZ), Version 12.2(4)YH, EARLY DEPLOYMENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
Synched to technology version 12.2(5.4)T

Upgrading to a New Software Release

For general information about upgrading to a new software release, see Software Installation and Upgrade Procedures located at: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/130/upgrade_index.shtml.

Feature Sets

The Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets consisting of software images—depending on the platform. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features. Release 12.2(4)YH supports the same feature sets as Releases 12.2 and 12.2 T, but Release 12.2(4)YH include new features supported by the Cisco 1700 series routers.


Caution Cisco IOS images with strong encryption (including, but not limited to 168-bit (3DES) data encryption feature sets) are subject to United States government export controls and have limited distribution. Strong encryption images to be installed outside the United States are likely to require an export license. Customer orders can be denied or subject to delay due to United States government regulations. When applicable, the purchaser/user must obtain local import and use authorizations for all encryption strengths. Please contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send an e-mail to export@cisco.com.

Table 2 through Table 4 list the features and feature sets supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)YH:

Table 2—Cisco 1720, 1721, 1750, 1751, and 1760 routers

Table 3—Cisco 1750, 1751, and 1760 routers

Table 4—Cisco 1751 and 1760 routers

The tables use the following conventions:

Yes—The feature is supported in the software image.

No—The feature is not supported in the software image.

In—The number in the "In" column indicates the Cisco IOS release in which the feature was introduced. For example, "12.2(4)YH" means the feature was introduced in 12.2(4)YH. If a cell in this column is empty, the feature was included in a previous release or the initial base release.


Note These feature set tables only contain a selected list of features, which are cumulative for Release 12.2(4)nn early deployment releases only (nn identifies each early deployment release). The tables do not list all features in each image—additional features are listed in the Cross-Platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS  Release 12.2 T  and Release 12.2 T Cisco IOS documentation.

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new features supported by the Cisco 1700 series routers for Release 12.2(4)YH.

New Software Features in Release 12.2(4)YH

The following sections describe the new software features supported by the Cisco 1700 series routers for Release 12.2(4)YH.

QSIG Protocol Support

QSIG protocol support allows Cisco voice switching services to connect private branch exchanges (PBXs), key systems (KTs), and central office switches (COs) that communicate by using the QSIG protocol. The QSIG protocol is becoming the standard for PBX interoperability in Europe and North America.

Terminal Line Security for PAD Connections

The X.25 standard defines a Closed User Groups (CUG) as an available network security feature. The Terminal Line CUG Security feature extends existing X.25 CUG capabilities that allow PAD access devices (TTY, VTY, CON, and Aux) to be configured for CUG security enforcement. Using the Cisco implementation of CUGs, you can configure access parameters at the X.25 network POP (DCE interface) boundary.

New Software Features in Release 12.2(4)T

For information regarding the features supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, refer to the Cross-Platform Release Notes and New Feature Documentation links at the following location on Cisco.com:

Important Notes

The following sections contain important notes about Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)YH that can apply to the Cisco 1700 series routers. (Also, see the "Caveats" section.)

Fan Operation in Cisco 1700 Series Routers

Cisco 1760 and 1760-V router fans are always on. However, the fans in Cisco 1720, 1721, 1750, and 1751 routers stay off until thermally activated.

Flash defaults to Flash:1 on Multipartition Flash

When using a multipartition flash card, the various flash partitions are referred to as "flash:1:", "flash:2:", etc. If you specify only "flash" in a multipartition flash, the parser assumes "flash:1:." For example, if you enter show flash all the parser defaults to "show flash:1: all" and only the flash information for the first partition displays. To see information for all flash partitions, enter show flash ?. This will list all of the valid partitions. Then enter show flash:xx: all on each valid partition.

Peak Cell Rate and Sustainable Cell Rate Values

On Cisco 1700 routers, specify the Peak Cell Rate (PCR) and Sustainable Cell Rate (SCR) as multiples of 32 Kbps. Other rates are treated as the next lower value of a multiple of 32. For example, an entered PCR value of 150 is considered 128.

Using the boot flash Command

Booting a Cisco 1700 series router with the commands boot flash or boot system flash results in unpredictable behavior. To work around this problem, be sure to enter a colon (:) following both commands (for example, boot flash: or boot system flash:.)

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior or defects in Cisco IOS software releases. Severity 1 caveats are the most serious caveats, severity 2 caveats are less serious, and severity 3 caveats are the least serious of these three severity levels.

Caveats in Release 12.2 T are also in Release 12.2(4)YH. For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, refer to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T document. For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2, refer to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 document. These documents list severity 1 and 2 caveats, and are located on Cisco.com and the Documentation CD.


Note If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can also use the Bug Toolkit to find select caveats of any severity. To reach the Bug Toolkit, log in toCisco.com and click Service & Support: Technical Assistance Center: Tool Index: Bug Toolkit. Another option is to go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl. 


Caveats for Release 12.2(4)YH

This section describes possibly unexpected behavior by Release 12.2(4)YH. Only severity 1 through 3 caveats are included.

Basic System Services

CSCdx47760

On Cisco 1700 series routers, an IP address is not assigned to a Fast Ethernet interface after the command ip address a.b.c.d mask is executed for the interface. To work around this problem, perform the following steps:


Step 1 In interface configuration mode for the Fast Ethernet interface, enter the command ip address a.b.c.d mask.

Step 2 Enter the command no shut.

Step 3 Enter the command enable to enter privileged mode and then enter the command write memory.

Step 4 Reload the router.


Voice

CSCdx05734

After entering the command shut or no shut, a voice path is not opened for voice ports to establish a connection trunk to a multicast address with signaling timeout for out-of-service-disabled). To work around this problem, use the command signal sequence oos no-action in the following configuration:

voice class permanent 1
  signal sequence oos no-action
  signal timing oos timeout disabled
