End-of-Sale Announcement for WIC-1B-U WAN Interface Card (WIC)

Introduction

This Product Bulletin serves as the formal notification of the End of Sales (EoS), and End of Engineering (EoE) for the WIC-1B-U WAN Interface Card (WIC) effective December 16, 2002. This product is being discontinued because of obsolete components, and will be replaced by a new product described below. The WIC-1B-U is a single port ISDN WIC with integrated NT-1 that is currently supported on the Cisco 1600, 1700, 2600, 3600 and 3700 Series product families.

The recommended replacement product for the WIC-1B-U is the new WIC-1B-U-V2, and it supports identical functionality, features, and performance as the WIC-1B-U. The WIC-1B-U-V2 will be supported on all platforms with the exception of the Cisco 1600 router. To allow product certification by customers, the WIC-1B-U-V2 will be available to order on the Cisco 2600, 3600 and 3700 platforms on October 28, 2002. The WIC-1B-U-V2 will be available to order on the Cisco 1700 Series on December 9, 2002. See table 2 below for key WIC-1B-U-V2 availability dates.

The WIC-1B-U-V2 is supported in all Cisco IOS feature sets. It is supported in four major Cisco IOS releases including 12.0M, 12.1M, 12.2 M and 12.2T, but is restricted to the more recent IOS maintenance releases in each. See Table 1 below for detailed IOS maintenance release support.

Support Programs

End-of-Sale refers to the time when a product is no longer available for new system or spare purchases. It does not apply to the service and support programs for those products. Cisco will continue to support the WIC-1B-U through our SmartNet and Comprehensive Maintenance programs. Customers with either of these service contracts are entitled to 24-hour phone support through the Technical Assistance Center, and advance replacement hardware for repairs. Comprehensive Maintenance customers also receive on-site 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 supporting these systems for a period of five (5) years after the End-of-Sale date.
