Product Migration Options

There are no Cisco ONS 15454 bundles as direct replacements for the part numbers outlined in Table 2. Similar functionality can be achieved by ordering the components individually, substituting the 15454-AIC-I card for the 15454-AIC card and the 15454-TCC2 card for the 15454-TCC+ card. These newer replacement cards may require a later software release than is presently operating on the user's system. More information regarding the AIC-I and TCC2 cards can be found in the data sheets located at: http://cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/optical/ps2006/products_data_sheets_list.html.
