EoS/EoLfor the Cisco 6400 Universal Access Concentrator

Product Bulletin No. 2397


End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Announcement
for the Cisco 6400 Universal Access Concentrator


Cisco Systems® announces the end of sale and end of life of Cisco® 6400 Universal Access Concentrator (UAC). The last day to order Cisco 6400 UAC is July 19, 2004. Customers will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) until July 19, 2009. Table 1 describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for Cisco 6400 UAC.

Customers are encouraged to migrate to Cisco 7200 Series Router, Cisco 7301 Router, Cisco 7600 Series Router, or Cisco 10000 Series Router for broadband service deployments. The Cisco 10000 Series Router is recommended for service provider DSL networks. Information about these products can be found at:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/index.html

Table 3 provides relevant information for migrating from Cisco 6400 UAC to the Cisco 7200 Series, Cisco 7301, Cisco 7600 Series, or Cisco 10000 Series products.

  • Cisco 7200 Series Router—The most widely deployed broadband aggregation solution in the industry comes in a compact 3-rack-unit (3-RU), modular universal router that supports a range of interfaces and Cisco IOS® Software broadband feature set. Support for up to 16,000 simultaneous subscriber sessions is available using Cisco 7200 NPE-G1 processor.
  • Cisco 7301 Router—The highest-performing single-rack-unit (1-RU) router in the industry with three built-in Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Supports a robust Cisco IOS Software broadband feature set and up to 16,000 simultaneous subscriber sessions.
  • Cisco 7600 Series Router—High-performance Ethernet subscriber services are supported by the Multiprocessor WAN Applications Module (MWAM) for Cisco 7600 Series. Support for up to 32,000 Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) sessions, 16,000 Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) tunnels, and 16,000 Service Selection Gateway (SSG) subscribers per MWAN module. The Cisco 7600 Series offers integrated high-density Ethernet switching and carrier-grade IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) routing with broadband reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) functions.
  • Cisco 10000 Series Router—Carrier-class delivery of up to 61,500 simultaneous subscriber sessions tightly coupled with a proven high availability and a rich service-enabling feature set. Ideal for ATM Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol access concentrator (LAC) or PPP termination aggregation (PTA) environments with robust ATM interfaces, high-density ATM virtual circuit support and patent-pending auto-virtual circuit creation and provisioning capabilities.

Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for Cisco 6400 UAC is Cisco 10000 Series Router with its PRE2 (Performance Routing Engine) and broadband Cisco IOS Software. Cisco 7200 Series Router, Cisco 7301 Router, and Cisco 7600 Series Router are potential replacement products, depending on customer requirements.

The Cisco 10000 Series Router combines superior packet-processing and forwarding performance with integrated broadband and private line feature support for up to 61,500 simultaneous broadband subscriber sessions in a product that meets the stringent requirements of Carrier-Class Network deployments. It is ideal for most Cisco 6400 Series Router migration, because it provides support for the requisite broadband features plus it delivers the advancements and benefits of next generation of Broadband Remote Access Servers (BRAS). In addition, the product supports the array of Ethernet, packet over SONET (POS) and ATM interfaces with high-density ATM virtual circuit support and a patent-pending auto-virtual circuit creation feature to ease provisioning in the DSL environment (Table 3).
