Product Substitution

On March 1, 1999, Cisco announced a price reduction of the Cisco 775M and 776M models. These two products will be the replacements for the EOS models mentioned above. For a replacement to the Remote Office (RO) and Remote Office X.25 (ROX) software images, Cisco recommends the new Cisco 800 series with the IP/IPX Plus software feature set.

Why Cisco is Ending Sales of Selected 700 Series Models

To increase its competitive position and simplify the ordering process, Cisco has reduced the price of the Cisco 775M and 776M models and has ended sales for the following models:762M, 765M, 766M, and 771M. The Cisco 775M and 776M models now offer more functionality at a lower price, and the number of models to choose from is reduced.
