Product Migration Options

The replacement for the Cisco E1N-14 card is the Cisco E1-42 card. Compatibility between cards is supported because both are compliant with ITU-T G.703 E1 specifications. Circuits between an E1N-14 and an E1-42 card can be provisioned with Cisco Transport Controller or Cisco Transport Manager.
