The following part numbers will not be orderable after July 31, 2001:

These are very low demand products. Production and inventory costs have increased to the point the products cannot be supported any longer. Because of their uniqueness, no substitute products can be recommended.

However, the 2600 router family products are recommended as substitutes for the 2500 series router. For more information on the Cisco 2600, please visit the following URL:
