So I'm reading on other discussion threads that cisco is not going to be supporting non-cisco devices moving forward. Can we get any confirmation on the timeline for this?

Hello


There is no official timeline from Cisco, at least not in the public domain. Its more of a 'customers can expect' type of tone from Cisco . The bottom line is, you won't see any 'new' third-party support in MARS in the future. Apparently the 'existing' third-party devices will be supported, but I won't be surprised to see that change in the near future.


You can see the confirmation from a Cisco employee at the following link:

These links are also useful (but without timelines):
