SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Q. What is the Cisco ® 3800 Series?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series extends Cisco Systems' leadership in multiservice routing with a new family of routers that offers the network the agility, performance, and intelligence needed to meet customers' rapidly evolving network and business challenges. The Cisco 3800 Series is the flagship platform in a portfolio of next-generation routers that integrate advanced technologies, adaptive services, and secure enterprise communications. These new routers offer the performance and reliable packet delivery necessary to efficiently deliver mission-critical network capabilities, including real-time applications such as VoIP, business video, and collaborative communications. Architectural enhancements include embedded security processing, significant platform performance and memory improvements, and new high-density interface types. These design achievements complement the Cisco IOS ® Software features and superior investment protection that this platform inherits from the Cisco 3700 Series. The Cisco 3800 Series, comprised of the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 (Figures 1 and 2), serves as a catalyst for midsize organizations and enterprise branch offices that want to gracefully scale their enterprise edges and take advantage of  converged business services, while minimizing the cost and complexity of network upgrades.
The Cisco 3800 Series offers two new modular platforms optimized for the secure delivery of concurrent voice, video, data, and wireless. The integrated services architecture of the Cisco 3800 Series builds on the highly successful Cisco 3700 Series design, and adds embedded security and voice processing to a highly modular system that is optimized for rapid deployment of intelligent network services and converged communications. The  Cisco 3800 Series supports the bandwidth requirements for multiple Fast Ethernet interfaces per slot, time-division multiplexing (TDM) interconnections, and fully integrated power distribution to modules supporting 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), while supporting the existing portfolio of modular interfaces. This helps to ensure continuing investment protection to accommodate network expansion or changes in technology as new services and applications are deployed. By integrating the functions of multiple separate devices into a single, compact unit, Cisco 3800 Series integrated services routers dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of managing remote networks.

PLATFORM POSITIONING

Q. Why did Cisco introduce these new routers?
A. As evidenced by Cisco 3700 Series sales, customers have shown tremendous demand for a single, resilient routing system that delivers converged data, security, and voice services. Cisco wanted to take this advanced, multiservice approach to the next level, providing customers with more power and more choices for basic and advanced services. Cisco 3800 Series routers were designed deliver increased performance, while running voice, security, quality of service (QoS), and routing services.
An important component of the Cisco Self-Defending Network, the Cisco 3800 Series features the industry's most comprehensive security services embedded within the router, providing customers with a single, resilient platform to rapidly deploy secure networks and applications. Features include built-in hardware encryption acceleration, IP Security (IPSec), VPN (Advanced Encryption Standard [AES], Triple Digital Encryption Standard [3DES], DES, and Multiprotocol Label Switching [MPLS]), stateful firewall protection, Cisco Intrusion Prevention System [IPS]), and URL filtering.
For voice applications, the Cisco 3800 Series features the highest analog and digital voice densities available, coupled with award-winning IP Communications Express software for call processing, auto attendant and voice mail. Each router includes embedded Digital Signal Processor (DSP) slots, making every router a voice-ready system. Customers can add the voice capabilities they want, when they need it, with the scalability and availability required for large enterprise branch offices. With embedded voice and security features; Cisco IOS Software-based VPN, firewall, and IPS; and optional VPN, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Content Engine, and Network Analysis network modules, Cisco offers the industry's most robust and adaptable solution for branch offices.
Q. With the introduction of these new platforms, what are the plans for the current Cisco 3700?
A. There are no plans to End-of-Sale the Cisco 3700 for at least 18-24 months from the FCS date of these new platforms. Cisco is committed to continue to develop new features for the Cisco 3700 Series through Cisco IOS release 12.4T, with bug fix support through IOS 12.5 Mainline. Cisco IOS timelines are still being defined-however this should enable new feature development through the end of 2005.
Additionally, to promote the Cisco 3700 Series longevity, Cisco recently raised the default SDRAM memory (and reduced add-on memory pricing) on the of Cisco 3700 Series. These actions were taken to provide customers with investment protection on their current platforms while allowing them to evaluate these new chassis and transition at their own pace.
When Cisco decides to end-of-sale the Cisco 3700 Series, Cisco will provide notice prior to the end-of-sale date along with support plans for  the Cisco 3700 Series in accordance with Cisco's standard end-of-life policy.
Q. How is the Cisco 3800 Series positioned against the Cisco 3700 Series?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series is recommended for customers that require higher levels of performance or higher density levels of voice, security, or integrated services such as switching, network analysis, content delivery, and wireless. The Cisco 3800 Series is ideal for process-intensive, higher-performance applications and intelligent network services that need to run concurrently. The Cisco 3800 Series can be  used  for midsize to large enterprises that want to securely and easily enable strategic business applications for improved productivity, reduced operating and capital expenses (OpEx/CapEx), and increased revenues. The special integrated services system design of the Cisco  3800 Series provides customers with the industry's most adaptive and resilient design for the rapid integration of new services and  applications with the highest-possible performance and headroom for growth.
Q. What is the performance of the 3800 series?
A. The 3800 Series routers are designed to deliver multiple concurrent services at wire-speed performance of up to T3/E3 rates. The T3/E3 value represents IMIX packet sizes in higher than typical 3800 services configurations. In less service-intense environments, actual WAN throughput will be higher. In light service environments with 64 byte packets, the 3800 series can achieve between 350-500 Kpps. For a more  detailed discussion on chassis, security, and voice performance, please reference the 1800/2800/3800 performance white paper at http://www.cisco.com/go/isr.
Q. How does the Cisco 3800 Series compare with the Cisco 7200 Series?
A. The Cisco 7200 Series features modular and upgradable CPU and hardware-based forwarding engines for maximum flexibility and performance scalability. The series continues to evolve, with the recent addition of the 1-Mpps-capable NPE-G1 processor, which includes three onboard Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and several new software and hardware enhancements. The series offers numerous connectivity options, many of which are not supported on the Cisco 3700 and 3800 series, including Channelized T3/E3, packet over SONET (POS), DPT  OC-12, SS7, ESCON, T3/E3 and OC-3 Circuit Emulation, and FDDI. Like the Cisco 3700 Series, the Cisco 3800 Series targets midsize  and large enterprise branch offices that require a high degree of service and application performance. Cisco 7200 Series routers are  aggregation devices, positioned at sites with integrated applications that require a high density of midspeed connectivity or multiple high-speed connectivity, such as regional aggregation sites and corporate headend sites .

Q. Why aren't the modules in Table 6 supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. The modules listed above are not supported because voice and encryption AIM capabilities have been integrated into the Cisco 3800 Series. For other older modules, they have been replaced by modules of newer versions with more features.
Q. Is OC-3 supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. The ATM OC-3 network modules now are available on 3800. The part number is NM-1A-OC3-POM. Please refer to the following link for the product details http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5855/prod_qas0900aecd80300030.shtml.

NETWORK MODULES

Q. What is an NME?
A. The enhanced network module (NME) slot is the next generation of the network module slot available for the Cisco 2800 and 3800 series. It is available in three form factors single-wide (NME), extra-wide (NME-X), and extra-double-wide (NME-XD). The NME offers additional performance and improved density over the existing network modules. NME slots provide IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE and Cisco inline power for IP phones and Cisco Aironet ® access points.
Q. What is the difference between the Cisco 3800 Series NME slot and the network module slot on Cisco 3700 Series systems?
A. The NME slot connects to a faster PCI bus for greater throughput and performance. The NME slot can also support higher power to the modules, allowing for more service modules and increased density on the modules. The NME slot has the ability to support four different module form factors, giving customers the flexibility to install modules of specific densities appropriate for the local needs.
Q. Are NME and HWIC slots backward-compatible?
A. Yes. You can use current-generation network modules and WICs in the new slots, but they will not be able to take advantage of the higher throughput or PoE capabilities.
Q. Is online insertion and removal (OIR) supported for modules in the NME slot?
A. Yes. OIR of modules in the NME slot is supported on Cisco 3800 Series routers. OIR is used for replacement of like modules only, and  limitations apply per module. Please check the documentation of the individual modules and the OIR procedures before executing this  procedure.

Note: Cisco strongly recommends that all affected interfaces be administratively shut down prior to performing the OIR operation.

WICS

Q. What is a HWIC?
A. The high-speed WAN interface card (HWIC) is an updated and enhanced version of the current WIC in Cisco 2600 and 3700 series chassis. The HWIC offers greater speeds and higher port density than the current WIC. It has a third row of pins, providing both increased power to the cards and the ability to provide PoE and Cisco inline power. HWICs are available in two form factors -single-wide and double-wide. All Cisco 3800 Series routers can support four single-wide HWICs or two double-wide HWICs.
Q. What is the maximum throughput of the four onboard HWIC slots?
A. The maximum throughput per slot is up to 400 Mbps full duplex. The new Gigabit Ethernet HWIC and the 4- and 9-port Cisco EtherSwitch HWIC modules are able to take advantage of this performance improvement up to the switching capabilities of individual platforms.
Q. Can a HWIC be used on the WIC slots of Cisco 2600, 3600, and 3700 series systems?
A. No. HWICs cannot be used on the WIC slots of Cisco 2600, 3600, or 3700 series systems. HWIC connectors have an additional row of  pins to support PoE, preventing the full insertion of the cards into legacy WIC slots.
Q. Is there any placement restriction of interfaces in any of the four integrated HWIC slots?
A. No. Any of the four available HWIC slots can be used for all supported VICs, VWICs, and WICs.
Q. Is OIR supported for modules in the HWIC slots?
A. No. OIR of modules in the HWIC slots is not supported.
Q. Are VICs supported in any of the four integrated HWIC slots?
A. Yes, but only the newer VICs (such as the VIC-4FXS/DID or VIC2-4FXO) are supported in any of the four integrated HWIC slots. PVDM2s are required on the motherboard or on the analog or digital voice network modules for DSP resources. The nonsupported VICs are  listed in Table 6.
Q. Is there voice ISDN PRI support on the integrated onboard WIC slots using the VWICs?
A. Yes. The HWIC slots can be used for voice ISDN PRI. VWICs can be used in conjunction with digital voice PVDM2s to support up to four T1s of high-complexity voice channels.
Q. What is required for the chassis to support digital voice via the onboard HWIC slots?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series allows digital voice support via the new onboard PVDMs using the multiflex VWIC in the onboard WIC/VIC/HWIC slots or in the NM-2W, NM-1FE2W-V2, NM-2FE2W-V2, NM-1FE1R2W network modules.
Q. What is the new HWIC slot numbering scheme on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series adopts a new HWIC slot numbering scheme, which is common across the Cisco 1800 and 2800 series. This new numbering scheme enables ports on the interface modules to be assigned a fixed number depending on the physical slot that the module is plugged into. The reference number stays the same and the configuration remains intact when modules are plugged into or removed from other slots. All interfaces or voice ports on a modular HWIC/VIC/VWIC/WIC that are plugged into either the built-in HWIC slots or into any network modules are now referenced as follows:

interface type NME-slot-number/HWIC-slot-number/port-number

voice-port NME-slot-number/HWIC-slot-number/port-number

NM-slot-number equals "0" for HWIC slots built onto the chassis.

ADVANCED INTEGRATION MODULES (AIMS)

Q. How many AIMs does the Cisco 3800 Series support?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series has two built-in AIM slots on the motherboard. These slots allow CPU offload with hardware-accelerated VPN (3DES) encryption, with up to 50 percent higher performance levels than provided by the onboard hardware encryption acceleration module. The slots also allow hardware compression and ATM capability, leaving the network module slots available for additional capacity while freeing up CPU resources.
Q. What restrictions are there when using the AIMs?
A. Two AIM-ATMs and AIM-COMPR4s can be configured on the same platforms, but two encryption AIMs cannot be implemented concurrently.

ONBOARD GIGABIT ETHERNET PORTS

Q. How many Gigabit Ethernet ports are there on Cisco 3800 Series systems?
A. There are two Gigabit Ethernet ports on Cisco 3800 Series systems. Port 1 is a fixed 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45. Port 0 can choose between 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 and an SFP module slot. SFP modules are optional.
Q. How can I choose between the RJ-45 and SFP module slot in Gigabit Ethernet Port 0?
A. A new command-line interface (CLI) allows you to choose between the two media types. The "SFP" option will only come up if there is  a  SFP module plugged into the slot. RJ-45 is the default.

Q. Is OIR supported on the SFP module slot?
A. Yes. OIR is supported on the SFP module slot.
Q. Can Auto-Negotiation be turned off for the on-board Gigabit Ethernet ports of Cisco 3800 ISRs when the speed is set to 1000?
A. Auto-Negotiation can be turned off in 1000BASE-X (SFP) operation but not in 1000BASE-T (RJ-45) mode. Annex 28D.5 Extensions within Clause 40 of IEEE 802.3 specification for 1000BASE-T requires auto-negotiation to be used in 1000BASE-T (RJ-45) operation. There are no standards defined for 1000BASE-T (RJ-45) operation without auto-negotiation. In order to comply with the standard, the auto-negotiation will always be enabled in 1000BASE-T (RJ-45) mode and speed and duplex can not be forced.
Q. Is Auto-Negotiation CLI "negotiation auto" still available on the Gigabit Ethernet ports of Cisco 3800 ISRs?
A. No, the original CLI "negotiation Auto" and "no negotiation auto" are no longer available on the two onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports starting from IOS release 12.4(4) and 12.4(2)T3. In order to turn on the auto negotiation, customers will have to set either speed or duplex to auto or set both speed and duplex to auto.
3845(config)#int gigabitEthernet 0/0
3845(config-if)#speed auto
3845(config-if)#duplex auto
Q. Is Cisco EtherChannel ® supported on the two onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports?
A. No. Cisco EtherChannel is not supported on the onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports. Instead, Cisco EtherChannel can be configured on Gigabit Ethernet HWICs, Gigabit Ethernet network modules, and Fast Ethernet ports on Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs and network modules when the ports are in switchport mode.
Q. Is Auto-Negotiation supported on the two onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports?
A. The Auto-Negotiation CLI is supported on the two onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports, however, we detached the meaning of actually setting Auto-Negotiation Capability with this CLI. We did not remove the CLI itself since there are other uses of this CLI like turning off  and  on the FLOW Control. There are historical and legacy reasons NOT to remove this across all different FE/GE interfaces.
Auto Negotiation is the default configuration and could be turned on again by the following CLIs:
3845(config)#int gigabitEthernet 0/0
3845(config-if)#speed auto
3845(config-if)#duplex auto
We strongly recommend customers use Auto Negotiation, even when only one mode of operation is used (e.g., 1000Base-X full duplex). When negotiation mode to auto, the Gigabit Ethernet port attempts to negotiate the link (that is, both port speed and duplex setting) with the partner port. Turning off Auto Negotiation will lead to link configuration mismatches and hence link down situations.
Q. Do the on-board Gigabit Ethernet ports on the Cisco 3800 routers support jumbo frames?
A. Yes. The on-board GE ports on the Cisco 3800 routers support jumbo frame (frames up to 16351 bytes).
Cisco3825(config)#int g0/0
Cisco3825(config-if)#mtu ?
  <64-16351>  MTU size in bytes
Q. What VLAN trunking protocols are supported on the onboard Gigabit Ethernet interfaces?
A. The on-board Ethernet ports of the 3800 ISRs support 802.1Q VLAN trunking. They do not support Inter-Switch Link (ISL) ISL trunking.

SYSTEM POWER (AC, DC)

Q. What are the available system power supply options for the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. Both platforms come equipped with a single AC-only power supply. Optional integrated AC and IP inline power (AC-IP) and optional DC power supplies are available for both platforms.
Q. Is RPS supported on the Cisco 3825 Integrated Services Router?
A. Yes. RPS is supported externally on the Cisco 3825 by connecting to Cisco RPS 675. The RPS connector to the external RPS unit is built into the platform and can operate with or without the presence of a system power supply.
Q. Is there a separate SKU for RPS support on the Cisco 3825 (as there is for the Cisco 3725)?
A. No. The RPS connector is built into the platform and comes with the AC, AC-IP, or DC model of the Cisco 3825.
Q. Is RPS supported on the Cisco 3845 Integrated Services Router?
A. Yes. RPS is supported internally on the Cisco 3845 by installing another power supply in the chassis. The Cisco 3845 platform can  be  configured to operate in redundant mode on two identical power supplies of AC only, AC-IP or DC only, or a mix of any two.
Q. Are there any restrictions when using these power supplies?
A. There is a restriction when using these power supplies on the Cisco 3845. You will receive one AC system power supply for every -48V DC internal (integrated) power supply ordered for the integrated Cisco EtherSwitch module that requires inline IP phone power. This  is  because the -48V DC internal (integrated) power supplies are integrated into the AC system power supply.
Q. Are the AC, AC-IP, and DC power supplies field-upgradeable and field-serviceable?
A. Yes. The Cisco 3845 AC, AC-IP, and DC power supplies are field-upgradeable and orderable as spares. In addition, each power supply is hot-swappable and provides status signals for proper operation and installation. The Cisco 3825 AC power supply may also be replaced in the field, but the chassis must be removed from a rack, the top opened, the wiring harness unplugged, and the power supply mounting screws undone. Table 9 shows the part numbers for power supply options for the Cisco 3800 Series.

Q. Can Cisco 3800 systems be converted from an AC to a DC power supply and vice versa?
A. Yes. If you convert from an AC power supply to a DC power supply, you need to order the spare DC power supply and also order the DC power cable. If you convert from a DC power supply to an AC power supply, you need to order the spare AC power supply and also order the AC power cable.
Q. Can different power supplies be used together on a Cisco 3845 router?
A. Yes. You can mix system power supplies any way you want in the Cisco 3845 chassis, but DC system power supplies do not support the  IP phone power supplies.

MEMORY

Q. What is the default memory configuration of the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. Table 10 lists the base memory that each configuration supports as a default when it ships from the factory.

Table 10. Cisco 3800 Series Base Memory Configuration

Product Name

Description

CISCO3825

One 64-MB Compact Flash, one 256-MB DDR-SDRAM with ECC

CISCO3845

One 64-MB Compact Flash, one 256-MB DDR-SDRAM with ECC

Q. Is the Cisco 3825 SDRAM memory compatible with the Cisco 3845 SDRAM memory?
A. Yes. The Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 use the same DDR-SDRAM with ECC.
Q. Does the default DRAM comes with one or two SDRAM DIMMs?
A. The default DRAM comes with one DIMM of 256 MB, leaving the second dual inline memory module (DIMM) slot open for future memory upgrades.
Q. What type of system Flash memory is used on Cisco 3800 Series?
A. The Cisco 3800 Series uses Compact Flash memory that conforms to the PC Card ATA specification with standard ATA register and command sets. This replaces both the system Flash memory and the PCMCIA Flash memory used on other Cisco routers.
Q. How many Compact Flash memory slots are available on Cisco 3800 Series routers?
A. Only one external slot is provided on Cisco 3800 systems. It accepts both Type I and Type II devices, and allows for hot insertion and  hot removal.
Q. Which formats will be supported on the Cisco 3800 Series Compact Flash memory cards?
A. Both Class B low-end file system (LEFS) and Class C DOS (Cisco DOS) file systems are supported; Cisco DOS is the default.
Q. Can you partition the Compact Flash card?
A. No.
Q. Can you hot insert a Cisco 3800 Series Compact Flash card into the external slot without disrupting service?
A. Yes. You will get a console message when you insert or remove the Compact Flash card. If the CF LED is lit or blinking, do not remove the Compact Flash memory card. The router might reload, or the Compact Flash memory card can be damaged.

SECURITY SUPPORT

Q. How do I enable the onboard crypto accelerator?
A. The following Cisco IOS security feature sets are needed to enable the crypto accelerator.

• Advanced Enterprise Services

• Advanced IP Services

• Advanced Security

Q. What features are supported by the onboard crypto accelerator?
A. The crypto accelerator supports IPSec DES, 3DES, and AES (128, 192, 256).
Q. Will the onboard crypto accelerator work in conjunction with the VPN encryption AIMs?
A. No. Once a VPN encryption AIM is installed, the onboard crypto module will no longer operate. IPSec will be processed through the VPN  encryption AIM.
Q. With the integrated crypto accelerator, is the Cisco 3800 Series under export control?
A. No. The export control depends on the Cisco IOS feature sets chosen. Cisco 3800 Series systems come default with IP Base software, which does not enable the crypto accelerator and therefore is not under export control. If a Cisco IOS security feature set is ordered with the system, then the export control guideline needs to be followed.
Q. Does the onboard crypto accelerator of 3800 process all encryption algorithms in hardware?
A. Yes but with a caveat. The simultaneous configuration/use of AH and ESP protocols causes the processing to shift to software only mode. This applies to any combination of ESP & AH transform sets used.
e.g.

• ESP-3DES AH-SHA-HMAC

• ESP-3DES ESP-SHA-HMAC AH-SHA-HMAC

• ESP-AES AH-MD5-HMAC

• ESP-AES ESP-SHA-HMAC AH-MD5-HMAC

Since this lowers the VPN performance of the router significantly, we recommend the use of the encryption AIM-especially if the encryption policy requires the simultaneous use of AH and ESP. This limitation does not apply to the AIM-VPN/EPII-Plus or AIM-VPN/HPII-Plus.

VOICE SUPPORT

Q. What types of voice network modules, VICs, and WICs are supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. For analog voice, the supported voice network modules are NM-HD-1V, NM-HD-2V, NM-HD-2VE and NM-HDA. The supported VICs include: VIC2-2FXS, VIC2-2FXO, VIC2-2E/M, VIC-2-2BRI-NT/TE VIC-4FXS/DID, and the VIC2-4FXO. For digital voice, the supported network module are the NM-HDV and the new NM-HDV2. A complete list of the supported voice modules can be found in Appendix A.
Q. Can any of the VICs or WICs installed in the three onboard WIC slots support voice?
A. Yes. The newer VIC2 modules are supported in any of the four onboard WIC/VIC/HWIC slots to support analog voice. Onboard PVDM2s are required to terminate the voice call. For digital voice support, a T1/E1 VWIC is required in combination with the onboard PVDM2s.
Q. Are the AIM-VOICE-30 and AIM-ATM-VOICE-30 supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. Neither of these AIMs is supported on the Cisco 3800 Series. Since the Cisco 3800 Series has integrated slots on the motherboard that support up to four PVDM2s support for the voice AIMs is not required.
Q. What is the EVM-HD-8FXS/DID?
A. The EVM-HD-8FXS/DID is a new high-density analog voice module, which can be run with DSPs on the onboard PVDM2s. One EVM will be supported on the Cisco 3825, and two will be supported on the Cisco 3845. The EVMs can be placed in any available network module  slot.
Q. What is the maximum number of voice channels that can be supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. The Cisco 3825 has two network module slots, which can accommodate two NM-HDVs, or four T1/E1s of packet voice. The Cisco 3845 has four network module slots, which can accommodate four NM-HDVs, or eight T1/E1s of packet voice. The maximum number of voice channels supported on the Cisco 3800 Series in Phase 1 is as follows:

Cisco 3825: Up to 480 digital voice channels, 52 analog voice (FXS) channels

Cisco 3845: Up to 720 digital voice channels, 88 analog voice (FXS) channels

Q. What do Cisco EtherSwitch modules offer the branch office?
A. Cisco EtherSwitch modules offer a cost-effective, integrated, single-device solution for enterprises deploying converged IP telephony, extending data, voice, and video by delivering IP routing, Ethernet switching, and fixed wireless solutions.
Q. How many Cisco EtherSwitch modules can be installed on a Cisco 3800 Series system?
A. Up to two modules. Configurations with two modules require that the Cisco EtherSwitch modules are stacked. A Cisco EtherSwitch HWIC can be stacked with a Cisco EtherSwitch network module by connecting the Gigabit Ethernet port of the network module to a Fast Ethernet port of a HWIC card. Similarly, two Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs or network modules can be stacked by connecting to each other.
Q. How many Fast Ethernet ports can be supported on a Cisco 3800 Series system?
A. The Cisco 3825 router supports up to 52 ports by using one 16-port and one 36-port Cisco EtherSwitch module. The Cisco 3845 router  supports up to 72 ports by using two 36-port Cisco EtherSwitch modules. Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs may be installed in place of  or  in  combination with Cisco EtherSwitch modules, but a maximum of two Cisco EtherSwitch devices are configurable per platform.

Q. What are the differences between inline power on the Cisco 3700 and 3800 series?
A. On the Cisco 3700 Series, the integrated inline power supply is a field-replaceable part that is separate from the system power. The Cisco 3700 Series supports the proprietary Cisco inline power scheme, which is not 802.3af-compliant. The Cisco 3800 Series has a common power supply for both inline phone power and system power. The AC-IP power supplies support either Cisco or 802.3af inline power, depending on the support of modules. Currently, only Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs support 802.3af.
Q. Can Cisco 3800 Series systems support inline power to both a Cisco EtherSwitch HWIC and a Cisco EtherSwitch network module in the same chassis?
A. Yes. The Cisco 3800 Series can provide inline power to both a Cisco EtherSwitch HWIC and a Cisco EtherSwitch network module in the same chassis. However, this can only be done through the Cisco proprietary power scheme. 802.3af-compliant mode cannot be operated when there is a mix of Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs and Cisco EtherSwitch network modules.
Q. Do the Cisco 3825 and 3845 routers have the same IP phone power supply?
A. No. The Cisco 3825 and 3845 router IP phone power supplies are different, and are not interchangeable.
Q. Is the 360W Cisco EtherSwitch power supply supported on Cisco 3800 Series routers?
A. The 360W Cisco EtherSwitch power supply is not supported internally on the Cisco 3800 Series-the IP power supply is integrated with the AC power supply. The 360W Cisco EtherSwitch power supply can still be connected externally to 16-port or 36-port Cisco EtherSwitch modules through the external IP phone power connectors on the modules.
Q. What inline power redundancy options are present in the Cisco 3825 router?
A. Since the Cisco 3825 router only supports one inline power supply, an external power supply is needed for redundancy. The external power supply can be either the Cisco RPS 675, or the external redundant inline power supply, the PWR-CHASSIS-360W, that contains a 360W power supply and one of the power supply cables offered with the Cisco EtherSwitch module. The Cisco RPS 675 supplies redundant system power as well as redundant inline power for Ethernet.
Q. Can I use a combination of internal and external -48V DC power supplies to get redundancy on the Cisco 3825 and/or to increase the number of redundant Cisco EtherSwitch ports on the Cisco 3845 platform?
A. Yes. There is a two power supply to one Cisco EtherSwitch module cable ratio, which connects two external power supplies to a single Cisco EtherSwitch module. This provides redundancy in the event that one of the power supplies fails. Software monitors the signals "PS1 Present," "PS1 OK," "PS2 Present," and "PS2 OK" on this cable, and allocates up to 360W of power for this configuration. The part number for  this cable is CAB-PPWR-PS1-2.
Q. If I have a system with both an integrated -48V DC internal power supply and an external -48V DC power supply, will the phone power be  disturbed if I pull out the external power supply cable?
A. If the -48V DC load of all of the IP phones being powered is less than the 360W capability of the integrated internal power supply, pulling the external power supply will not disturb the IP phones in any way. You can insert and remove the external power supply cable without causing any problems.

SOFTWARE FEATURES AND NEW CISCO IOS COMMANDS

Q. What is the Interface Data Block (IDB) limit for the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. There are 1200 and 1400 IDBs supported on the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845, respectively (this is the same as Cisco 3700 Series).
Q. What are some of the new Cisco IOS features supported in Release 12.3(11)T?
A. Numerous new features are available in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(11)T on the Cisco 3800 Series. Please refer to the Feature Navigator at http://www.cisco.com/go/fn.
Q. Is the Cisco IOS SNA Switching feature set supported on the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. Yes. A single Cisco IOS SNA Switching feature set will be available for the Cisco 3800 Series called Advanced Enterprise Services with  SNA Switching with 3DES, product names are: S382SNAK9 and S384SNAK9.
Q. Are there any platform-specific Cisco IOS commands that will be introduced with the Cisco 3800 Series?
A. Yes. There are some new Cisco IOS commands that will enhance the management of these platforms. They are:

facility-alarm {core-temperature|intake-temperature} <30-70>-Configure temperature threshold for alarms

media-type {rj45 | sfp}-Select between RJ-45 and SFP connector on onboard Gigabit Ethernet port 0.

TDM SUPPORT

Q. What time-division multiplexing (TDM) capabilities are supported on Cisco 3800 Series routers?
A. These routers support TDM Drop-and-Insert capability between AIMs, VWICs in built-in HWIC slots, or VWICs in network modules. The TDM bus connecting all interfaces is standard with these platforms.
Q. Is additional hardware required to support TDM capabilities?
A. No additional hardware is required. The TDM switch is integrated with the motherboard.
Q. What is the accuracy of the clock on the TDM blackplane?
A. Stratum 4E is standard on the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 routers.

SERVICEABILITY

Q. What are the field-replaceable units (FRUs) on Cisco 3800 Series systems?
A. On the Cisco 3825:

• Power supplies (AC, AC-IP, and DC)

• Memory

• Compact Flash

On the Cisco 3845:

• Motherboard

• Power supplies (AC, AC-IP, and DC)

• Memory

• Compact Flash

• Fan tray and bezel

Q. Can you perform OIR on the fan tray?
A. Yes. The fan tray can be removed in a Cisco 3845 while the router is fully operational in order to service a redundant power supply. In  high-temperature environments, the fan tray should be reinstalled in a few minutes.

MISCELLANEOUS

Q. How do we calculate the line number for aysnc interfaces on a Cisco 3800?
A. The actual line number associated with each interface is determined by the following equations that vary according to the hardware setup (such as a network module, interface card or interface card in a network module).

X = Network-module-slot and slot.

Y = Interface-card-slot and subslot.

Z = Port Number.

For port in a 3 tier format
Interface-number = slot/subslot/port
Line number = 2 + (X * 64) + (Y * 16) + Z
For port in a 2 tier format
Interface-number = slot/port
Line number = 2 + (X * 64) + Z
Example 1
The interface number of port 22 on an NM-32A in network module slot 1 will be 1/22.
X = 1 Z = 22
And the line number for this port will be
