Looking for MTBF figures for 3745, 2621XM routers and 2950 series switches

Can anybody point me to the correct page on the Cisco website to get these values ?

Separate values for chassis, power supply, network modules and WIC cards are also welcome.

Using Cisco Search gives a lot of references, but none adequate.

Thank you

Hello,

I do not think that these values exist, simply because it is impossible to predict when your equipment will fail. Your best guess is to check out independent testers, like VeriTest, or the Tolly Group. I had a case once in South Korea where the power was turned off every night to save energy, and that took quite a toll on the Cisco routers there, they didn´t last as long as others that were turned on all the time.

Here are some links that might be of interest:
