Introduction

Cisco Systems is announcing the end of sale (EoS) for the Channelized T3 Dual-Wide Port Adapter; Channelized T3 Interface Processor 40 and the Channelized Interface Processor 50, effective September 30, 2000. Severe component availability issues due to the age of these port adapters have necessitated this action.

Support Programs

End of sale refers to the time when certain products are no longer available for new purchases. It does not apply to the service and support programs for those products. Cisco will continue to support the PA-CT3/4T1, CT3IP-40, and CT3IP-50 after EoS through the SMARTnet and comprehensive maintenance programs. Customers with either of these service contracts are entitled to free software updates, 24-hour phone support through the Technical Assistance Center, and advance replaced hardware for repairs. Comprehensive maintenance customers also receive onsite service. Customers who do not have a maintenance contract can purchase software updates and hardware repair services from Cisco to meet specific requirements rather than full-service coverage. Cisco is committed to providing software support for a minimum of two years and providing hardware support for five years after the EoS date.
