Cisco IP Phone Power Cube
Cisco Systems® announces the end of sale of the Cisco® IP Phone power cube. The last day to order the power cube and spare is November 14, 2004. Customers with the appropriate support contract will continue to receive support from the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) until November 14, 2009. Table 1 describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for the Cisco IP Phone power cube. Table 2 lists the product part numbers affected by this announcement.
The Cisco IP Phone power cube is widely used to supply power to Cisco IP phones where Cisco in-line power over Ethernet is not available or practical. The new Cisco IP Phone 7970G color phone uses a new local power cube (part number CP-PWR-CUBE-2). This new cube is compatible with all models of Cisco IP phones. Customers are encouraged to migrate to the new Cisco IP Phone power cube when local power is used for the installation of any Cisco IP phone or when replacing an existing power cube. The new power cube uses the same country (AC line) cord as the existing power cube (part number CP-PWR-CUBE).
