Cisco 4xDMT
End of Life Announcement

Overview

Cisco is announcing the End of Life (EOL) for the ATUC-1-4DMT and ATUC-1-4DMT-2 ADI-based four-port discrete multitone (DMT) line card. Customers are encouraged to purchase the ATUC-4-FLX-2, ATUC-8-DMT-1, or ATUC-8-DMT-1-H for continuing DSL rollouts, and participate in the Technology Migration Program. Customers with existing Cisco 677 customer premises equipment (CPE) can interoperate with Cisco 12.1(6) IOS® releases and above. Thus the ATUC-4-FLX-2 or ATUC-8-DMT-1-H will interoperate with both the Cisco 677 and the Cisco 678.

After the EOL of the Cisco 677 and 678, customers are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco SOHO77, Cisco 827, or a third-party CPE that has been tested for interoperability with Cisco 6000 IP digital-subscriber-line (DSL) switches.

Product IDs and dates (Last-Time Buy, End of Hardware Support, and End of Software Support) are listed below.
