In addition to the interfaces listed in Table 1-1, Cisco 2600 series routers include the following hardware features:

Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) for main memory and shared memory (Cisco 261x and Cisco 262x routers)

Synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) for main memory and shared memory (Cisco 26xxXM, Cisco 265x, and Cisco 2691 routers)

Nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM) for storing configuration information

Flash memory—Stores the operating system software image. In Cisco 2691 routers, flash memory is a CompactFlash memory card. In all other Cisco 2600 series routers, flash memory is a single inline memory module (SIMM).

EIA/TIA-232 (RJ-45) console port for local system access by using a console terminal

EIA/TIA-232 (RJ-45) auxiliary port for remote system access or dial backup by using a modem

Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2 show examples of Cisco 2600 series routers.


Note Cisco 2600 series routers are either single rack-unit (1RU) or two rack-unit (2RU) high.



Note The number and type of interfaces vary, depending on the specific router.

Reading the Front-Panel LEDs

The LEDs indicate the current operating condition of the router. By observing the LEDs, you can note any fault condition that the router is encountering, and then contact your system administrator or customer service, when necessary.

Figure 1-3 and Figure 1-4 show the locations of the LEDs on the front panel of Cisco 2600 series routers. Table 1-3 and Table 1-3 describe these LEDs.

Reading the Rear-Panel LEDs

Figure 1-4 through Figure 1-10 show the location of the Cisco 2600 series rear-panel LEDs. Table 1-4 and Table 1-5 describe these LEDs.


Note Not all router models are shown in these illustrations. The speed and number of Ethernet and Token Ring interfaces varies depending on the router model. LED labels and functionality also vary depending on the router model.

Modules, Interface Cards, and Memory

The latest information on network modules, WAN interface cards (WICs), voice interface cards (VICs), advanced integration modules (AIMs), and memory is available online and on the documentation CD-ROM.

Interface Numbering

Each interface (port) on a Cisco 2610, Cisco 2620, and Cisco 2650 series router is identified by number as described in the following sections.

WAN and LAN Interface Numbering

Cisco 2600 series routers contain the following WAN and LAN interface types:

Built-in LAN interfaces: Ethernet, FastEthernet, Token Ring

Two or three slots in which you can install WAN interface cards (WICs)

One slot in which you can install a network module

The numbering format is interface-type slot-number/Interface-number. Two examples are:

Ethernet 0/0

Serial 1/2

The slot number is 0 for all built-in interfaces and 0 for all WIC interfaces; the slot number is 1 for network module interfaces.

Interface (port) numbers begin at 0 for each interface type, and continue from right to left and (if necessary) from bottom to top.

Figure 1-11 shows a router of 1-RU height with:

A WIC in each WIC slot (containing interface Serial 0/0 in physical slot W0, and interface Serial 0/1 in physical slot W1)

A 4-serial-port network module in slot 1 (containing the following ports: Serial 1/0, Serial 1/1, Serial 1/2, and Serial 1/3)

First built-in Ethernet interface—Ethernet 0/0

Second built-in Ethernet interface—Ethernet 0/1, or optionally in Cisco 2612 and Cisco 2613 routers only: Token Ring interface 0/0

Figure 1-12 shows a router of 2-RU height with:

A 2-port T1 network module in slot 1 (containing the following ports: T1 1/0 and T1 1/1)

Two built-in Ethernet 10/100 interfaces—Fast Ethernet 0/0 and Fast Ethernet 0/1

A WIC in each WIC slot (containing interfaces Serial 0/0 and Serial 0/1 in physical slot W0, interface Serial 0/2 in physical slot W1, and interface BRI 0/0 in physical slot W2)

If physical slot W0 is empty and physical slot W1 contains a 1-port serial WIC, the interface number in the WIC is numbered Serial 0/0.

If slot W0 contains a 2-port serial WIC and slot W1 contains a 1-port serial WIC, the interfaces in physical slot W0 are numbered Serial 0/0 and Serial 0/1, and the interface in physical slot W1 is numbered Serial 0/2.

If slot W0 contains a 2-port serial WIC and slot W1 contains a 1-port BRI WIC, the interfaces in physical slot W0 are numbered Serial 0/0 and Serial 0/1, and the interface in physical slot W1 is numbered BRI 0/0.


Note The slot number for all WIC interfaces is always 0. (The W0 and W1 slot designations are for physical slot identification only.) Interfaces in the WICs are numbered from right to left, starting with 0/0 for each interface type, regardless of which physical slot the WICs are installed in.


Figure 1-12 Interface Numbering in Cisco 2691 Routers

Voice Interface Numbering

Voice interfaces are numbered as follows:

chassis-slot/voice-module-slot/voice-interface

If a 4-channel voice network module is installed in chassis slot 1, the voice interfaces are:

1/0/0—Chassis slot 1/Voice module slot 0/Voice interface 0

1/0/1—Chassis slot 1/Voice module slot 0/Voice interface 1

1/1/0—Chassis slot 1/Voice module slot 1/Voice interface 0

1/1/1—Chassis slot 1/Voice module slot 1/Voice interface 1
