The Cisco® 880G Series Integrated Services Router with the third-generation (3G) wireless WAN (WWAN) option provides secure high-speed wireless WAN connectivity to small businesses, enterprise small branch offices, and teleworker sites (Figure 1). Transparently integrated into the enterprise-class feature set available on the Cisco 880 Series, 3G wireless connectivity allows rapid installation, deployment flexibility, and resilient WAN backup.

Product Overview

Cisco 880 Series Integrated Services Routers are the next generation of fixed-configuration routers that provide collaborative business solutions for secure data communication to small businesses and enterprise teleworkers. The 3G wireless option available on these routers offers a cost-effective, rapidly deployable, reliable, and secure backup solution. With data rates approaching T1 speeds, 3G wireless can be used for primary WAN connectivity in locations where wireline services such as DSL and ISDN are not available or are too expensive to deploy.

The Cisco 880G Series Integrated Services Routers support the latest 3G standards (High-Speed Packet Access [HSPA] and EV-DO Rev A) and are backward-compatible with Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS), Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), and EV-DO Rev 0/1xRTT. The Cisco 880G Series has two variants (refer to Table 1 for part numbers):

Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and UMTS models are based on 3GPP, and they support HSPA (High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) and High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA)), UMTS, EDGE, and GPRS.

Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) models are based on 3GPP2, and they support EV-DO Rev A/Rev 0 and 1xRTT.

In addition to 3G wireless WAN, the Cisco 880G Series offers additional WAN options such as xDSL and Fast Ethernet WAN interface, a 4-port 10/100 Fast Ethernet managed switch with VLAN support and the latest 802.11n WLAN capability. The Cisco 880 Series provides the performance required for concurrent services, including firewall, intrusion prevention, content filtering, and encryption for VPNs; and quality-of-service (QoS) features for optimizing voice and video applications. In addition, Cisco Configuration Professional is a web-based configuration tool that simplifies setup and deployment. Centralized management capabilities give network managers visibility and control of the network configurations at the remote site.

Businesses are looking for ways to reduce costs, increase revenue, and improve business continuity. Third-generation wireless connectivity allows a small enterprise branch office or remote office to set up in a matter of hours, without worrying about availability of broadband services and the need for laying down the lines. Wireless carriers offer flexible, usage-based data plans that can be catered to meet the needs and price points of the business customer. As a WAN backup alternative, 3G wireless offers greater WAN diversity and resiliency because it is independent of the local terrestrial infrastructure. It enables businesses to stay productive during service provider downtime or a network failure.

With enhanced data rates and improved latency (below 100 milliseconds), WWAN services are an ideal way to supplement traditional wire line services. 3G WWAN data services offered today have average data rates well in excess of ISDN speeds, with theoretical limits in excess of 7 Mbps on the downlink and 5 Mbps on the uplink. The 3G WWAN can be use as a primary link for sites with lower bandwidth requirements and for mobile applications. The 3G WWAN data services can also be use as a cost-effective alternative in areas where broadband services are either not available or very expensive. Cisco is building on these performance milestones and adding support for wireless to our wide variety of WAN interface alternatives.

Key Business Benefits

Applications

The Cisco 880G Series is ideal for deployment by small businesses, retail locations, small branch offices that are part of a large enterprise network, and a host of other deployments that need high-speed wireless connectivity and secure data, voice, and wireless services.

Small Remote Office

The Cisco 880G Series connects users in small remote offices, such as those for insurance agents, lawyers, or sales, to the main office. You can use the integrated 3G wireless backup option for added reliability when the primary broadband link fails, or as the primary connection for deployments that are portable, such as insurance adjustment, mobile banking, and mobile retail. When connecting to the main office, VPN encryption and integrated security features such as firewall and intrusion prevention protect the network at every perimeter. IT managers can centrally manage the remote site to quickly troubleshoot network problems. Integrated secure unified WLAN connectivity simplifies the deployment and management of devices at the remote site.

Virtual Office

The Cisco 880G Series is ideal for corporate teleworkers, who might have a mix of broadband connection types such as DS, 3G and Ethernet. The Cisco 880G Series provides a secure virtual office with all the collaborative services such as data, voice, and video. Redundant WAN links help ensure business continuity. QoS features in the Cisco 880 Series allow an IP phone to be connected to the router, giving voice traffic precedence over data applications. Integrated WLAN support in the Cisco 880 Series helps ensure that if wireless connectivity is to be used, the connection will be secure. (Refer to Cisco Business-Ready Teleworker Solutions for more information, http://www.cisco.com/go/cvo)

Retail VPN

Retail stores migrating from dialup connections for point-of-sale transactions can use the 3G wireless option on the Cisco 880G Series for low-cost broadband access with the required security to comply with payment-card-industry (PCI) and other data security requirements. Multiple devices and applications can then be added to the store network to take advantage of the increased bandwidth and also incorporate optional WLAN support to enable secure mobility and enhance productivity.

Managed Services

Service providers and value-added resellers can use the Cisco 880G Series as a platform to offer differentiated business-class security and WLAN services for small to medium-sized business customers. Superior management capabilities such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support with 3G MIB and Cisco Configuration Professional make remote management and provisioning easier.

Key Features and Benefits

Integrated 3G WWAN broadband: With the 3G WWAN modem integrated into the router, you gain the benefit of simplified installation and management. In addition, the Cisco 3G WWAN are tightly integrated with Cisco integrated services routers, which run the industry-leading Cisco IOS® Software, giving you access to all the advanced features of Cisco IOS Software such as quality of service (QoS), intelligent network queuing, and robust security.

Short installation time: Businesses sometimes wait for weeks or months to get data circuits installed at new locations. For temporary or seasonal sites, wireless data services allow instant connectivity anywhere there is cellular coverage, and rapid deployment allows you to quickly set up networks with WAN connectivity.

Network resiliency through WAN diversity: WAN connectivity is crucial to the functioning of your business, and any downtime means a loss of productivity and lost opportunity. Staying connected and operational during a network outage can be vital. A wireless connection for backup to a remote site provides protection against line outages and an additional level of redundancy because the 3G WWAN infrastructure is often served by separate facilities, providing redundancy for the entire local loop.

Reduced cost: The emerging 3G WWAN cellular data service plans are competitively priced with existing wireline services (ISDN, DSL, and cable). 3G WWAN solutions also allow you to consolidate your service providers across large geographical areas instead of having service contracts with multiple service providers.

Portability: Cisco 880 with 3G WWAN can be easily relocate wherever coverage is available.

Performance: With increasing data usage and the proliferation of web-based applications at remote sites, there is an increasing need for high-speed (broadband) data connections to run mission-critical applications at these sites. 3G WWAN services promise low-latency links at speeds approaching T1 connections, allowing you to send and receive more mission-critical data across the WAN in backup scenarios.
