END-OF-LIFE NOTICE, NO. 611
This Product Bulletin covers the issues associated with the End-of-Sale of the Cisco® 1001 LAN Extender product. The last order date for the Cisco 1001 is July 31, 1997.
The Cisco 1001 LAN Extender product first shipped in September, 1995. Since the release of the Cisco 1005 Router at a lower price, demand for the 1001 has declined sufficiently that it no longer makes sense to offer the product.
This document includes information about which products are affected, availability, and maintenance, as well as substitute products.
The Cisco 1005 Router is an appropriate substitute product for the Cisco 1001. While the Cisco 1005 does not support LAN Extender functionality, the 1005 does support IP routing plus bridging-as well as significant ease-of-use functionality-in its entry-level, IP software image; higher-functionality images also support IPX and/or AppleTalk routing. Like the Cisco 1001, the Cisco 1005 provides Ethernet-to-leased-line connectivity; in addition, the 1005 supports X.25, Frame Relay, SMDS, and DDR (Switched-56). The Cisco 1005 serial port has a "5-in-1" DB-60 connector; separate cables are available to support X.21, V.35, EIA/TIA-232, EIA/TIA-449, and EIA-530 physical interfaces. Pricing for the Cisco 1005 starts at US$1195 list, including IP routing software.
