Problems in obtaining Cisco parts

I have just been informed by my reseller that there is a six month backlog in getting HWIC-1FE cards. Are any other users faced with the same problem?  I have got over 30 2811 ISR routers that I need an addional FE card in

Re: Problems in obtaining Cisco parts

Since last March or April 2010, Cisco has been under fire from clients regarding the time it takes for the parts to arrive.  There were well-documented cases of some 6500 chassis and/or Supervisor and line cards with 3-4 months wait time.  It also involved a number of 4500 chassis too.

Cisco is privy for the reason which raised speculations that it had something to do with "re-tooling" which caused a major backlog to a number of  their component suppliers.

Right now, we are in the process of getting a number of 6500s.  One supplier said that it would take 21 days for the parts to arrive while another said a week.  Another one said they've got it and will deliver the next day.  So, in my opinion, shop around.  If you can't wait, be forewarned that you'll have to pay a premium.
