Table 4 describes the Cisco IP/VC product for which there is no replacement product.

The IPVC-3530-VTA assisted customers in retaining their investment made in an H.320 only videoconferencing end point. Because most videoconferencing end points are enabled for both IP and ISDN networks and have dramatically declined in price, purchasing a new end point would better serve both the customer and the application.
