Race Communications announces the termination of sales of the Cisco 3640 router.
Cisco Systems announced accelerated terms of termination of sales of Cisco 3640 routers. The official deadline for accepting orders is October 28, 2002.
Instead of the Cisco 3640 router Race Communications specialists recommend purchasing Cisco 3700 series multiservice routers - Cisco 3725 or Cisco 3745. These router models have higher performance, 2-4 times more than the Cisco 3640 router.
Router performance (in thousands of packets per second)
Cisco 3700 series routers have integrated Fast Ethernet ports and interface card slots. This allows you to refuse to install additional network modules and get a more cost-effective solution.

If it is necessary to use configurations that are not currently supported by Cisco 3700 series routers, a Cisco 3640A router will be available for ordering. This model is completely similar to the Cisco 3640 router, with the feature that it supports a limited set of software versions. Cisco The 3640A will be available for order from October 14, 2002 and will be produced in a very limited period of time - from 6 to 12 months.
This announcement of the termination of sales does not affect the other router models included in the series Cisco 3600. Cisco 3620, Cisco 3661 and Cisco routers 3662 are available to order without any restrictions.
