Cisco Connected Grid DSL GRWICs Hardware Installation Guide
Last Revised: May 16, 2012OL-26959-01
This document provides a hardware overview for Cisco Connected Grid Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) interface cards that provide connectivity to the Wide Area Network (WAN) for the
Cisco 2010 Connected Grid Router (hereafter referred to as the Cisco CGR 2010).
This document includes the following sections:
Information About the Connected Grid DSL GRWICs
Each of the following DSL interface cards is a single-wide, grid router WAN interface card (GRWIC).
•Cisco Connected Grid 2-Pair Symmetric High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line (G.2SHDSL) card
•Cisco Multimode ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+/VDSL2 Annex A (VA-DSL-A)
•Cisco Multimode ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+/VDSL2 Annex B (VA-DSL-B)
•Cisco Multimode ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+/VDSL2 Annex M (VA-DSL-M)
Note For details on software configuration for these GRWICS, please refer to the appropriate document listed in Software Configuration.
This section covers the following topics:

Installing and Removing the Connected Grid DSL GRWICs
This section describes how to install and remove a Connected Grid DSL GRWIC in the Cisco CGR 2010 router and includes the following topics:
This section includes the basic installation warning statements. For regulatory compliance and safety information for the Cisco CGR 2010, refer to the Connected Grid Router 2000 Series Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document.
Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment. Statement 1030
Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. Statement 1001
Warning Read the installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source. Statement 1004
Installing a Connected Grid Single-Wide DSL GRWIC
All of the Connected Grid DSL GRWICs are single-wide interface cards. The router can accommodate four single-wide GRWICs or two single-wide GRWICs with one double-wide GRWIC, or two double-wide GRWICs at any one time.
A single-wide GRWIC installs in to one of four slots on the cable side of the router.
Each GRWIC is enclosed within a carrier enclosure with bars that extend outward from the front panel (see Figure 5).

To install a single-wide GRWIC, follow these steps:
Step 1 Stand the GRWIC on end to slide the single-wide GRWIC in to the router slot (see Figure 6).

Step 2 Tighten the three captive screws on the front of the GRWIC (see Figure 7).

Note When installing multiple GRWICs at a time, the GRWICS must overlap as seen in Figure 8.

Removing a Connected Grid Single-Wide DSL GRWIC
Caution The module CANNOT be hot swapped—to install the module, you must first power down the system.
Step 1 Using a screwdriver, loosen the three captive screws on the Connected Grid DSL GRWIC.
Step 2 Gently pull the module out of the slot.
Connecting Connected Grid DSL GRWICs to the Network
To connect the DSL GRWICs to the network, use a standard RJ-11 straight-through cable to establish connection between the GRWIC and the network device.
Table 5 shows the ADSL/ADSL2/2+/VDSL2 GRWIC pinouts.
Note If you are connecting an ADSL interface card to an RJ-11 wall jack that has the DSL pair wired for pins 2 and 5, you must use an RJ-11 crossover cable (lavender with blue stripe). The RJ-11 crossover cable can be ordered separately as a spare.
