One of the great things about Cisco Live is the people you meet. While the classes, hands-on labs, and speaking sessions are all great, if you’re willing to take the extra step, you can meet people who you’ll continue to learn from all year. To facilitate this – this meeting of people that can sometimes feel a bit awkward – I’ve got a challenge for you: #SelfieBINGO! #SelfieBINGO – Is a big game of BINGO where you find people on each square, take a selfie with them, and tweet it. It’s fun because it basically gives you a list of 25 new people to seek out at Cisco Live. If you’re playing, these are people who have self-selected as willing and interested in meeting new people. We’ll be playing throughout the week. Would you like to be on a card? Do This: To join #SelfieBINGO you can leave a comment on this blog, ping me on Twitter ( @Lauren , #SelfieBingo #AddMe #CLUS), or fill out this simple form with: Your Twitter handle Your real name (first & last) (Optionally) a hint on where you’ll be. At Cisco Live: Pick up a #SelfieBINGO card at the social meetup on Sunday, or at the EngineersUnplugged studio in the digital arcade throughout the week. And yes, I’ll update this / tweet excessively with more details. How to play (will be written on cards, too): Find people on your sheet(s) Introduce yourself and take a selfie with them Tweet the selfie with their name, the bingo card number, and the hashtags: #SelfieBingo #CLUS Cross out the box with the name of the person in your selfie. (make a note of the day/time you took the selfie if you can) When you have 5 in a row take a picture with yourself & your bingo sheet! #SelfieBingo #CLUS

Please Note - This FAQ has been ripped from Cisco Integrated Services Router Generation 2 - Cisco because we're testing out how these newfangled communities work. Do you have NEW questions on the ISR series? Q. What is Cisco adding to its portfolio of integrated services routers? A. Cisco is introducing new integrated services routers that build on the concept of a truly borderless network by integrating multiple services into a single platform that can provide all the services a typical branch office needs. The services include increased capacities for routing, switching, unified communications, security, and applications integration. At the same time, the new routers are designed for expansion that can deliver increased performance and capabilities over time without the need for expensive system upgrades for hardware as remote sites grow. Q. Why is Cisco introducing these new routers? A. The latest additions to the Cisco portfolio of integrated services routers enhance a rich history of integrated services with world-class routing. They are specifically designed to meet the needs of emerging Ethernet WAN deployments using the latest technical innovations in the industry. Q. How do these new routers differ from the currently available integrated services routers? A. These routers include several advancements developed as a result of customer feedback on the original routers. They support faster interface and application module form factors, including a service module (SM), an enhanced high-speed WAN interface card (EHWIC), and an internal services module (ISM), with an 802.11n wireless option on the new Cisco ® 1941W Integrated Services Router. Also included are system innovations such as the multigigabit fabric (MGF) for module-to-module communication, dual Compact Flash memory slots, and, for the first time on any Cisco product, a USB console interface. These new routers are also the flagship products for the introduction of a new and simplified form of Cisco IOS ® Software packaging based on a single universal Cisco IOS ® Software image that delivers all features and functions through licensing keys. All routers by default now include additional Compact Flash and main system memory (DRAM) at no additional cost, and you can configure them to much higher densities than current integrated services routers. Also, the new Cisco 3900 Series Integrated Services Routers include a modular services performance engine (SPE) for field-upgradable performance. Finally, router performance has been dramatically improved with the new generation of integrated services routers delivering approximately 2-6 times the performance of the current generation of integrated services routers while simultaneously increasing the power efficiency and power management features to control the amount of power these systems consume. Q. What are the plans to discontinue the currently available integrated services routers? A. We currently have no plans for changing the status of the current generation of integrated services routers (Cisco 1800, 2800, and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers) to end-of-sale or end-of-life status. These routers will continue to fill a role as part of the larger family of integrated services routers for some time to come. The current generation of integrated services routers, with more than 6 million in use worldwide, is proof of the popularity of these platforms for the foreseeable future.

On a support level, consider that the 7206VXR had EoL announcement in 2007 and Last Day of HW support was in Feb 2013. However the ISR 3845 had an EoL announcement in 2010 and has Last Day HW Support Oct 31, 2016. You can read the two announcements here: 7206VXR: EOL/EOS for the Cisco 7206VXR Router NPE-400 Bundles (Non-Security) - Cisco ISR 3845: End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Announcement for the Cisco 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers - Cisco However : You probably want to look at which will better fit your needs. Maybe others can chime in!

Hi Santiago, The ISM module is not necessary to do IPSEC VPNs on a 2921-VSEC-K9 bundle – the security bundle on the 2921 is enough to do VPNs – The ISM module increases the crypto throughput if needed. Thanks, Lauren

Hi All, Did you see this video from Networking Field Day 5? If you're curious about the state of high availability on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Switch, check it out and then ask your questions below! [Please note, I've tried uploading this video 3 times using (1) youtube embed code, and then different variations on the Jive embedding tool. Let me know which ones work for you. Thanks, Lauren]
