End-of-Sales for TTM OC-48

The first production versions of the OC-48 POS line card known as TTM OC-48 are not orderable after October 4, 1999.

Upgrade

Customers that have purchased TTM OC48 POS line cards have one year from the end-of-sale announcement to upgrade, for free, to Performance-based (Perf) OC48 line cards. An active program will be in place for the year-long period, where customers will have the option to automatically receive free upgrades. The upgrades will only be authorized if a TTM OC48 POS sales order can be referred to.

After October 2000, upgrades to Perf OC48 POS need to use the standard Technology Migration Plan (TMP) credit program.

Calculations for credits or trade-in values can be found by using the TMP calculator found at:

End-of-Contract Renewals

Service contracts on these products will not be renewed after October 2002.

End-of-Support

The TTM line cards will be supported by Cisco TAC until October 2002, but no changes to the functionality of the line card, or enhancements can be made under any conditions. If issues with the TTM OC48 card arise and additional capabilities are necessary or there are issues with existing functionality, then the card needs to be upgraded to the Perf OC48 POS line card.
