New Software Packaging

In April of 2003, Cisco announced new simplified packaging of Cisco IOS beginning with release 12.3 on the 1700, 2600, and 3700 series router platforms. Goals of the simplification effort are to reduce the number of available packages from 44 to 8, while providing consistent image names across the various platforms Cisco offers. Beginning with 12.2S and 12.3T, simplified packaging is available for all platforms running Cisco IOS. This new packaging extends to Catalyst switches running IOS, while a similar simplification effort will extend to Catalyst OS.
