Cisco NSE-1 processor modules are being discontinued.

Race Communications informs that since March 2, 2004, sales of the Cisco NSE-1 processor module for Cisco 7200 series routers have been discontinued.

As a replacement, Race Communications experts recommend Cisco NPE-G1 processor modules with high performance, for which a wide range of Cisco IOS software versions are available. If the PXF functionality is not used, we can recommend the Cisco NPE-400 processor module, which has similar performance to the NSE-1.

Support for previously purchased Cisco NSE-1 processor modules will continue until March 2009, and software updates for NSE-1 will be released until March 2005.

The table shows the main comparative characteristics of the processor modules NSE-1, NPE-400 and NPE-G1.
