Description

Cisco IOS 11.3(1)DA was released on July 28, 1998, to deliver functionality for the digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM) Cisco 6200 xDSL platforms. Cisco IOS 11.3(x)DAy is directly based from Cisco IOS 11.3(x). The "y" increases sequentially with each maintenance build. Cisco IOS 11.3(x)DA is not a full-fledged Cisco IOS release. It only takes advantage of Cisco IOS-integrated applications such as Telnet, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and Command Line Interface (CLI). The functionality of Cisco IOS 11.3(x)DAy will not follow the standard release policy. It will build releases based on various Cisco IOS 11.3(x) maintenances such as Cisco IOS 11.3(1)DA1 or Cisco IOS 11.3(3)DA1. It will later start building releases based on the Cisco IOS 12.0T or 12.0T base code.
