I couldn't find anything that said the 7500 is end-of-life/support/etc...
This is all I found on their site regarding the 7500:
End-of-Sale/End-of-Life: FEIP2-DSW-2TX & FEIP2-DSW-2FX
End of Sale/End of Life: SA-ENCRYPT Services Adapter
End of Sales - VIP2-50, No. 1868
End of Sales: Route Switch Processor 2, No. 1866
End of Sales: SRPIP-OC12, No. 1867
I know it doesn't answer your question, but it appears that the 7500 is
still on the list.

be used in the 7500, so the chassis continues to be supported. Good
news in this customer's case, though actually, they do have an RSP2, so
are still somewhat affected. RSP2 went away as of 16 Feb 2003, as per
