Why are we ending sale of the CISCO1502-8E and CISCO1503-8M hubs?

End-of-Sale of these products as of December 15, 1998 is due the following reasons:

10 Base T hubs prices are dropping, making 1502 and 1503 hubs not competitively priced.

Higher bandwidth technologies such as 10/100 hubs and switches are becoming a viable alternative. Cisco offers CISCO1528 and CISCO1548. The managed versions will be available in first quarter of calendar 1999.

Cisco has other products that can support the 10 Base T market, such as CISCO1516M.
