This Product Bulletin details changes to the IOS software packaging for Cisco 2691 Routers. It introduces eight new cross-platform feature sets in Cisco IOS 12.3 Mainline and 12.3T. In addition, this is an End-of-Sales notification for a number of feature sets.

Note: This Product Bulletin covers the packaging of functionality into feature sets. It does not cover individual new features. For information about new features in Cisco IOS 12.3 Mainline and 12.3T, refer to the Cisco IOS software pages on cisco.com.

Overview

During the course of Cisco IOS releases 12.3 Mainline and 12.3T, the Cisco 2691 router will migrate to Cisco's eight new cross-platform feature sets. The feature sets are introduced as an alternative to classic feature sets in Cisco IOS 12.3 Mainline. Customers deploying Cisco IOS 12.3 Mainline are encouraged to migrate to the cross-platform feature sets, but it is optional. Customers planning or expecting deployment of new features in Cisco IOS 12.3T are strongly encouraged to understand and evaluate the new cross-platform feature sets as they will be the vehicles for new feature delivery. Starting in Cisco IOS 12.3T, the cross-platform feature sets will replace the classic feature sets.

End-of-Sales feature sets in Cisco IOS 12.3T and suggested migration paths

The table below lists Cisco IOS feature sets that will be discontinued in Cisco IOS 12.3T, and suggested migration paths. It should be noted that other active release trains continue to issue maintenance releases of these feature sets. The End-of-Sales applies only to Cisco IOS 12.3T.

SmartNet and other support contracts are transferable from an EoS image to any image suggested as a migration path.

The suggested migration paths are high-level directions for customers migrating from classic feature sets to the cross-platform feature sets introduced in IOS 12.3 Mainline. Detailed information about the new cross-platform feature sets is available on the cross-platform feature set introduction page.

Cisco provides several tools to perform detailed analysis of feature content. To find out which Cisco IOS software supports best supports your needs, we recommend using the Cisco Software Advisor, Cisco IOS Upgrade Planner and Cisco IOS Feature Navigator, allowing registered customers and partners to search by feature(s) or by release, and comparison of different releases and feature sets.
