Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for the 1-port WIC (part number WIC-1B-S/T) is the new 1-port WIC (part number WIC-1B-S/T-V3; Table 3). The WIC option offers a single ISDN Basic Rate Interface (BRI) port (with optional NT1). The new 1-port WIC inserts into a mixed-media network module (part number NM-1FE2W-V2,NM-2FE2W-V2,NM-1FE1R2W,or NM-2W); it also is supported on the Cisco 1700,1800,2600XM,2800,3700,and 3800 series routers. It provides a cost-effective ISDN router with the following benefits of integration: CBCB Fewer devices and cables to deploy and manage CBCB Remote and local configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting through the Cisco IOSCBCB. Software CLI and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) CBCB Flexibility and investment protection CBCB Single-vendor support CBCB Enhanced reliability CBCB Physical space savings The ability to add BRI connectivity through a WIC enables administrators to maximize valuable slot space while providing additional connectivity options on the same module such as Fast Ethernet.
