Guide to Cisco Multiservice Switch Documentation (June 2002)


This guide explains how to access release notes and product manuals for multiservice switching products.

Our products ship with this guide and a Documentation CD. Starting in June, 2002, Cisco multiservice switching products will no longer ship with printed release notes. Instead, release notes are available online or on the Documentation CD. We are making this change to ensure you always get the latest release notes, because printed release notes might be obsolete or outdated.

To Access or Print Release Notes

Multiservice switch release notes are on the Documentation CD, and are also accessible from http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wanbu/index.htm. Table 1 lists the June 2002 product release versions and their corresponding release notes.

Note The June 2002 product release includes two new PNNI routing switches: the MGX 8830 and the MGX 8850 (PXM1E). For clarity, the MGX 8850 switch will now be referred to by the type of processor card it uses, for example, MGX 8850 (PXM1), MGX 8850 (PXM1E), or MGX 8850 (PXM45). These new titles will help you access or order compatible documentation. The release notes contain more information about these new switches.


Release notes cannot be ordered, but can easily be printed from the online PDF file. To access release notes online, you need to know the version number (Table 1). Release notes are generally organized as follows: Switch name, Release notes, version number. The following sample procedure describes how to find and print the MGX 8950 Release 3 release notes:


Step 1 Go to the http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wanbu/index.htm URL.

Step 2 Click on MGX 8950.

Step 3 Click on Release Notes.

Step 4 Click on 3.0 Version Release Notes for Cisco MGX 8950.

Step 5 If you click on the PDF icon in the top right corner, you can download the release notes to your hard drive or print them.
