Release Notes for C881G-B/S/V-K9
First Published: May 30, 2011Last Updated: March 18, 2013Release: Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)M or later releasesOL-24269-01
This document describes the release features of the EVDO versions (BSNL, Sprint, and Verizon) of the Cisco C881G Series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs). These routers come with embedded multiband, multiservice WAN modems for use over WCDMA Radio Access Networks (RAN).
For more information about this release, see www.cisco.com/go/3g.
This section describes the new features in this release.
The GPS feature provides the following commands:
In the syntax of these commands, the unit parameter refers to:
•(EHWIC-3G-EVDO-x) The router slot, WAN interface card (WIC) slot, and port separated by slashes (for example, 0/1/0).
•(C881G-x-K9) The number 0.

Note Obtaining a GPS-fixed location requires a supported GPS antenna to be connected to the DIV/GPS port.
Note Obtaining a GPS-fixed location using the Standalone mode can take up to 12 minutes. This depends on the location and type of antenna used.
This feature enables the router to send and receive SMS messages. This feature also enables the router to save and store the SMS messages in an FTP server.
Note SMS is enabled by default. However, you need to define the FTP server to store incoming and outgoing SMS messages.
The SMS feature provides the following commands:
In the syntax of these commands, the unit parameter refers to:
•(EHWIC-3G-EVDO-x) The router slot, WIC slot, and port separated by slashes (for example, 0/1/0).
•(C881G-x-K9) The number 0.
Note You can use the call screening command dialer caller number callback to authenticate SMS messages that you can use to establish data connections.
This example shows you how to send an SMS message (C881G-x-K9):router#cellular 0 cdma sms send <phone number> "Test message"
This example deletes all SMS messages (EHWIC-3G-EVDO-x):router#cellular 0/1/0 cdma sms delete all

The following example sets FTP path to the SMS_archive directory on the FTP server at 192.168.1.3 (C881G-x-K9 and EHWIC-3G-EVDO-x):router(config-controller)# gsm sms archive path ftp://username:email@example.com/SMS_archive
3G WWAN MIB Persistence
This feature allows you to retain 3G WWAN MIB object values and trap settings across router reloads.
Before configuring 3G WWAN MIB, you should perform some SNMP pre-configuration to avoid getting warning messages. The following is an example of SNMP pre-configuration:snmp-server community public ROsnmp-server community private RWsnmp-server enable traps c3g

Remotely Initiated Data Call Back Using SMS
This feature remotely brings up the cellular interface by sending SMS messages over CDMA networks.
The following example shows you how to configure this feature for the EHWIC:
Note In the example below, the phone number of the administrator who wants to remotely bring up the link using SMS is 408-123-4567 on a GSM network (
dialer caller 4081234567 callback). Replace this number with your own number. To test this example and bring the cellular link up, send an SMS message from your phone.

Rebranding of C8xx-B and EHWIC-3G-EVDO-B
The C881G-B-K9, C819G-B-K9, and EHWIC-EVDO-B (Bharat) SKUs are introduced as an umbrella SKU to cover BSNL, Tata, and Reliance service providers in India.
Software based mechanism is introduced to identify specific carrier.
Carrier ID and name are displayed under "show cellular <unit> hardware".
The software mechanism is backward compatible with other existing CDMA SKUs such as HWIC-3G-CDMA(-S,-V) and PCEX-3G-CDMA(-S,-V).
Cisco IOS Requirement
15.3(2)T, 15.3(3)M or later. New MIB objects for carrier ID and name will be introduced in later release.
