DETAILED INFORMATION---NEW HARDWARE

Cisco 850 and 870 Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 870 Series of integrated services routers are fixed-configuration routers that support multiple types of DSL technologies, broadband cable, and Metropolitan (Metro) Ethernet connections in small offices. They provide the performance needed to run concurrent services, including firewall, intrusion prevention, and encryption for VPNs; optional 802.11b/g for wireless LAN (WLAN) networking; and quality-of-service (QoS) features for optimizing voice and video applications. In addition, the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) Web-based configuration tool simplifies setup and deployment, and centralized management capabilities give network managers visibility and control of the network configurations at the remote site.
Cisco 870 Series integrated services routers offer:

• High performance for broadband access in small offices

• Advanced security, including:

– Stateful inspection firewall

– IP Security (IPSec) VPNs (Triple Data Encryption Standard [3DES] or

– Advanced Encryption Standard [AES])

– Intrusion prevention system (IPS)

– Antivirus support through Network Admission Control (NAC) and enforcement of secure access policies

• Four-port 10/100 managed switch with VLAN support

• Secure WLAN 802.11b/g option with use of multiple antennas

• Easy setup, deployment, and remote-management capabilities through Web-based tools and Cisco IOS Software

Cisco 1801, 1802, 1803, 1811, and 1812 Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 1801, 1802, 1803, 1811, and 1812 integrated services routers are fixed-configuration routers designed for secure broadband, Metro Ethernet, and wireless connectivity. They provide significant performance improvements, feature capability, versatility, and additional value compared to prior generations of the Cisco 1700 Series. The Cisco 1800 Series fixed-configuration routers provide:

• Secure broadband access at wire-speed performance for branch and small offices

• Integrated ISDN Basic Rate Interface (BRI), analog modem, or Ethernet backup port for redundant WAN links and load balancing

• Secure WLAN option for simultaneous 802.11a and 802.11b/g with use of multiple antennas

• Advanced security, including:

– Stateful inspection firewall

– IPSec VPNs (3DES or AES)

– IPS

– Antivirus support through NAC and enforcement of secure access policies

• Eight-port 10/100 managed switch with VLAN support and optional Power over Ethernet (PoE)

• Easy deployment and remote-management capabilities through Web-based tools and Cisco IOS Software

Cisco 1801, 1802, and 1803 routers provide high-speed DSL broadband access through ADSL over basic telephone service (Cisco 1801), ADSL over ISDN (Cisco 1802), or G.SHDSL (Cisco 1803) while helping ensure reliable networking with integrated ISDN S/T BRI backup. The Cisco 1811 and 1812 provide high-speed broadband or Ethernet access through two 10/100BASE-T Fast Ethernet WAN ports, and they also provide integrated WAN backup through a V.92 analog modem (Cisco 1811) or ISDN S/T BRI interface (Cisco 1812). (Refer to Table 3.)

DETAILED INFORMATION---NEW SOFTWARE FEATURES

The Cisco 871, 1811, and 1812 integrated services routers support two USB 2.0 ports for additional data storage and eToken support.
Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(8) YI supports wireless features associated with the integrated 802.11b/g access point in the Cisco 850 and 870 series routers and 802.11a/b/g radios in the Cisco 1800 Series routers.
The Cisco 850 and 870 series and Cisco 1800 Series fixed-configuration routers support the following new features:

IEEE 802.11a support (Cisco 1800 Series fixed-configuration routers only)---This support helps enable interoperability under 802.11a specifications for wireless network architecture, wireless association, and radio management. Support for 802.11 standards allows settings for the access-point mode of operation (root or repeater), Service Set Identifier (SSID), authentication type, channel selection, transmission rates, power-save mode, and security based on Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), and other configurable fields.

IEEE 802.11b support---This feature provides support for the IEEE 802.11g standard for wireless networking through 802.11g access-point radio modules.

IEEE 802.11g support---This feature provides support for the IEEE 802.11g standard for wireless networking through 802.11g access-point radio modules.

Broadcast key rotation---This feature allows customers to set a timeout for the shared broadcast key, causing generation of a new broadcast key. Part of the Cisco Wireless Security Suite, broadcast key rotation mitigates passive attacks that attempt to determine the broadcast key from weak initialization vectors.

Cisco Compatible Extensions Information Element---This information element allows a Cisco access point to inform Cisco Compatible Extensions client devices about the Cisco Compatible release version that it supports.

Configurable radio transmit power---This feature allows the customer to set the transmit power of the access point at 1, 5, 20, 30, 50, or 100 mW, scaling the coverage area as needed. Note: The settings allowed in your regulatory domain might differ from the settings named here.

IEEE 802.11d World Mode support---The 802.11d standard for World Mode enables the access point to inform an 802.11d client device which radio setting the device should use to conform to local regulations.

MAC address local authentication---This authentication allows configuration of the local authenticator of the Cisco access point to allow MAC authentication of users on the Cisco access point.

Multiple SSIDs (wireless VLAN)---With this feature, the access point provides support for up to eight SSIDs, helping enable flexible service deployment. Each SSID is configurable for several parameters, creating up to eight unique sets of services. Configurable parameters include mode for guest clients (enabling a broadcast SSID), client authentication method, maximum number of client associations, VLAN identifier, and RADIUS accounting list identifier.

RADIUS server per SSID---This feature allows the administrator to specify a different RADIUS server per SSID.

Transmit power control (TPC)---TPC is used by Cisco access points to relay transmit power information to Cisco and Cisco Compatible wireless client devices. Client devices use the TPC information in conjunction with the signal strength of the access point to calculate path loss and the transmit power necessary for the client to reach the access point. This feature extends client-device battery life.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)---WPA is the Wi-Fi Alliance specification for interoperable WLAN security that supports IEEE 802.1X authentication and Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption.

Tables 4 and 5 list the Cisco IOS Software feature sets supported in Cisco 800 and 1800 series routers, respectively.
