CISCO CATALYST 5000 AND 5500 SERIES
Cisco Systems announces the end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for the Cisco Catalyst
switches, including all related Cisco Catalyst 5000 and 5500 series chassis and modules. The Cisco Catalyst 5000 and 5500
series chassis and modules will be orderable through June 30, 2003.
For those Cisco Catalyst 5000 and 5500 series customers who need to purchase Catalyst 5000 and 5500 series modules after the end-of-sale date,
Cisco Systems Capital offers refurbished equipment through Cisco authorized resellers. Cisco Systems will continue to offer technical support on
the Cisco Catalyst 5000 and 5500 series software for three years and on the hardware for five years after the end-of-sale date, through June 2008.

numbers affected by this announcement and relevant information for migrating to the replacement product.
Customers planning new deployments should consider the award-winning Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series or the new Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series of
