NM-1FE-TX for the Cisco 3600 Series

June 10, 2002

Introduction

The NM-1FE-TX is being put on End of Sale (EoS) and End of Life (EoL) status due to key components unavailability.

For following reasons, a designated replacement will not be available:

FE TX interfaces are supported through network modules which additionally support WAN Card Slots

There are platforms available, supporting FE TX interfaces on board

The potential replacement products and support programs are detailed below. For those interfaces already deployed in the field, the standard Cisco support programs remain in effect.

Support Programs

End-of-Sale refers to the time when certain products are no longer available for new purchases. It does not apply to the service and support programs for those products. Cisco will continue to support the NM-1FE-TX network module 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 Technical Assistance Center, and advanced replacement of hardware for repairs.

Comprehensive maintenance customers 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. Cisco is committed to providing software support for a minimum of two years and hardware support for a period of five years after the EoS date.
