SKU Information


Note The WAAS Express feature is not supported. This feature will be supported for 3G and 4G interfaces with later IOS releases.


3G Features

The 3rd Generation (3G) is a generation of standards for mobile technology that facilitates growth, increased in bandwidth, and supports more diverse applications. The following are 3G features supported in Cisco 812 ISR.

Modem control and management

Asynchronous transport (AT) command set

Wireless Host Interface Protocol (WHIP)

Control and Status (CNS) for out-of-band modem control and status

Diagnostic Monitor (DM) logging

Account provisioning

Modem firmware upgrade

SIM locking and unlocking

MEP unlocking

OMA-DM activation, voice-initiated data callback

Dual SIM card slots

Link persistence

SMS Services

Global Positioning System (GPS) Services

3G MIB

WLAN Features

A Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) implements a flexible data communication system frequently augmenting rather than replacing a wired LAN within a building or campus. WLANs use radio frequency to transmit and receive data over the air, minimizing the need for wired connections.

Cisco 812 ISR supports the following WLAN features:

Dual Radio

Cleanair Technology

Dynamic Frequency Selection

Dual Radio

The Cisco 802 Access Points (AP802) is an integrated access point on Cisco 812 ISRs. The access point is a wireless LAN transceiver that acts as the connection point between wireless and wired networks or as the center point of a standalone wireless network. In large installations, the roaming functionality provided by multiple access points enables wireless users to move freely throughout the facility while maintaining uninterrupted access to the network.

AP802 Dual Radio contains two different types of wirelesss radio that can support connections on both 2.4 Ghz used by 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n and 5 Ghz used by 802.11a and 802.11n.

All the WLAN traffic for Cisco 812 ISR passes through the Ethernet WAN or 3G interface. The AP802 Dual Radio is supported on the following SKUs:

C812G-CIFI+7-E-K9

C812G-CIFI+7-N-K9

C812G-CIFI-V-A-K9

C812G-CIFI-S-A-K9

Cleanair Technology

The CleanAir is a new wireless technology that intelligently avoids Radio Frequency (RF) to protect 802.11n performance. For more information, see Cisco CleanAir Technology. This feature is supported in all SKUs that has WLAN support.

Dynamic Frequency Selection

The Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) is the process of detecting radar signals that must be protected against 802.11a interference and upon detection switching the 802.11a operating frequency to one that is not interfering with the radar systems. Transmit Power Control (TPC) is used to adapt the transmission power based on regulatory requirements and range information.


Note The DFS functionality is disabled for FCC SKUs pending FCC certification. For more information, see Dynamic Frequency Selection and IEEE 802.11h Transmit Power Control.


Platform Features

For the complete list of Cisco 812 ISR platform features, see Platform Features.

LEDs

The Cisco 812 ISR has two LEDs located on the top side of the router and supports 3G and WLAN LEDs. For more information on LEDs supported in Cisco 812 ISR, see Cisco 812 Integrated Services Router Hardware Installation Guide.

TFTP with Ethernet WAN Interface

For more information on TFTP download, see Disaster Recovery with TFTP Download.


Note The Cisco 812 ISR has a GE interface as the only Ethernet interface. Hence, the port number is automatically set at Rommon for TFTP connectivity.


SKU Information

Table 1-1 lists the different SKUs available for the Cisco 812 ISR. The AP802-AGN-X-K9 (WLAN PID) is integrated as part of the router for the SKUs that support WLAN and is not orderable separately.
