End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Announcement—
Cisco Redundant Power System 300

Cisco Systems announces the end of life of the Cisco Redundant Power System 300 (RPS 300). The last day to order the Cisco RPS 300 and the RPS 300 connector cable will be 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 RPS 300.

Customers with switches supported by the Cisco RPS 300 are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco Systems Redundant Power System 675 (RPS 675). However, the Cisco Catalyst 3524-PWR XL switch is only supported by the Cisco RPS 300. The Cisco RPS 675 is an enhancement to the RPS 300, as it will power up in active mode and is capable of supporting the higher power requirements of the Catalyst 3550-24 PWR switch.
