Network Modules and WAN Interface Cards (WICs)

The following table shows the relationship between routers and network modules or WICs.

Model Network Modules and WAN Interface Cards (WICs)
1600 WICs with no network modules.
1700 WICs with no network modules.
2600 Network Modules (NM-2W) are populated with WICs. The built-in WIC slot (on the Chassis) can also be populated with WICs.
3600 Network Modules (for example, NM-1E2W and NM-1FE2W) are populated with WICs.
3700 Network Modules (NM-2W) are populated with WICs. The built-in WIC slot (on the Chassis) can also be populated with WICs.

The following table shows which router models support the network modules and the WAN interface cards. For more information on the modules and cards, including Cisco IOS® software support, select the link for the module or card in question.

Note: The following table does not include Voice Network Modules and Voice Interface Card (VICs). For information on voice products refer to the document Voice Hardware Compatibility Matrix (Cisco 175x, 1760, 2600, 3600, 3700, VG200, Catalyst 4000, Catalyst 6500/6000).
