Objectives

This document contains instructions and procedures for installing and configuring the Integrated Services Adapter (ISA) in Cisco 7200 series routers and the Integrated Services Module (ISM) in Cisco 7100 series routers. Also contained in this document are basic configuration steps and examples of router commands and displays.

The ISA is a single-width service adapter and the ISM is a single-width service module. Each provides high-performance, hardware-assisted tunneling and encryption services suitable for virtual private network (VPN) remote access, site-to-site intranet, and extranet applications. The ISA and the ISM offload IP Security Protocol (IPSec) and Microsoft Point to Point Encryption (MPPE) processing from the main processor of the Cisco 7200 series or Cisco 7100 series router, thus freeing router resources for other tasks.

Although both the ISA and the ISM provide the same functionality, they are physically unique cards designed for different router platforms, with their own part numbers:

SM-ISM(=)—Cisco 7100 series routers

SA-ISA(=)—Cisco 7200 series routers


Note The information provided in this document applies to both the ISA and the ISM unless specifically stated otherwise.



Note To ensure compliance with U.S. export laws and regulations, and to prevent problems later on, see the "Compliance with U.S. Export Laws and Regulations Regarding Encryption" section for specific and important information.


Audience

To use this publication, you should be familiar not only with Cisco router hardware and cabling but also with electronic circuitry and wiring practices. You should also have experience as an electronic or electromechanical technician.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC website and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center. The avenue of support that you choose depends on the priority of the problem and the conditions stated in service contracts, when applicable.

We categorize Cisco TAC inquiries according to urgency:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

Cisco TAC Website

You can use the Cisco TAC website to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC website, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC website. Some services on the Cisco TAC website require a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC website, you can open a case online at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/index.html

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC website so that you can describe the situation in your own words and attach any necessary files.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
