End-of-Sale Announcement of Specific
Cisco 7100 Series WAN CPE
Router Models

Overview

The Cisco 7100 Series VPN Router provides best-in-class virtual private network (VPN) services by combining the strength of Cisco 7000 Series features with Cisco IOS® Software network services. To better address requirements specific to the VPN market, the Cisco 7100 Series WAN CPE router models will enter end-of-sale (EOS) status November 30, 2001. Cisco 7100 Series VPN Router bundles for behind-edge Fast Ethernet-to-Fast Ethernet connectivity are not affected by this announcement.

Due to specific theater requirements, the Cisco 7100 Series VPN platforms were augmented with bundles addressing the low-cost, high-performance WAN customer premises equipment (CPE) market. The recent addition of Cisco 7200-based WAN CPE bundles (Cisco 7204 VXR/CPE, see http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/rt/7200/) for service provider CPE and enterprise WAN edge environments provide customers a new price/performance combination that is highly competitive in the WAN CPE market. Furthermore, the Cisco 7200 WAN CPE bundles provide additional expansion capabilities relative to the Cisco 7100, such as multiple port adapter (PA) slots, modular processor, and I/O subsystem.
