Catalyst 2820 FDDI Modules End-of-Life

Overview

Cisco is announcing the End-of-Life (EOL) of the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) modules supported to date on the Catalyst 2820 platform. The increased dominance of Ethernet/Fast Ethernet has caused the demand for FDDI connectivity in local-area networks (LANs) to taper off significantly in the last year. Moreover, we are witnessing decreased commitment from component vendors in supporting FDDI technologies. These vendors have signaled their reduced commitment by diverting investments away from this technology. Alternative vendors are not expected to emerge to fill this space.
