End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Announcement for the
Cisco NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W Network Modules for the Cisco 3600 and 3700 Series Multiservice Routers
Cisco Systems® announces the end of life of the Cisco® NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W network modules. The last day to order the Cisco NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W network modules is December 31, 2003. Customers will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) until December 31, 2008. Table 1 describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for the Cisco NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W network modules.
Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco NM-1FE2W-V2 and NM-2FE2W-V2. These newer LAN/WIN mixed media network modules are identical to the NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W in terms of features, functions, and performance with the important difference being the limited number of Cisco IOS® Software releases supported. Table 3 provides relevant information for migrating from the Cisco NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W network modules to the Cisco NM-1FE2W-V2 and NM-2FE2W-V2 network modules.

Cisco will continue to support the listed products through its SMARTnet® and comprehensive maintenance programs. Customers with either of these service contracts are entitled to free software updates, 24-hour phone support through the Cisco TAC, and advanced replacement of hardware for repairs. Customers with comprehensive maintenance contracts also receive onsite 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.
