Target Market

Cisco Systems, Inc. released Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(14)SY2 as a short-lived release for the Cisco 6500 and 7600 platforms. It is targeted for customers primarily in the Enterprise space that require the VPNSM module in conjunction with other Service Modules in the same chassis, use with FlexWAN cards, support for Remote Access IPSec, and need for improved GRE performance. All of these have severely hampered use of VPNSM to date on these platforms.
