The Cisco® 2610XM-16TS Terminal Server Router Bundle provides customers with an easy-to-order solution that meets the needs of terminal server networking requirements today. Based on the award-winning Cisco 2600 Series modular multiservice router platform, this new terminal server router bundle offers numerous services to meet future business applications.
The Cisco 2600 Series Multiservice Platform is a modular multiservice access router that provides flexible LAN and WAN configurations, multiple security options, and a range of high-performance processors. With more than 80 network modules and interfaces, the modular architecture of the Cisco 2600 Series allows interfaces to be easily upgraded for network expansion.
The Cisco 2610XM-16TS is a Cisco 2600 Series bundle that allows customers to order-using one part number-a Cisco 2600 Series Router with all the necessary components needed to make a Cisco 2610XM Series Router into a terminal server at a reduced price compared to ordering each component separately.
By selecting the Cisco 2600 Series for their terminal server needs, customers protect their investments and gain flexibility. Traditional terminal servers are single-purpose, nonmodular, dedicated devices. The Cisco 2600 Series is different because it can adapt through the addition of over 80 modules as the network requirements change over time and provide the foundation for the deployment of more advanced technologies concurrently with your traditional equipment requirements.
The Cisco 2600 Series can be deployed to meet a variety of networking needs. Figure 1 and 2 below provide some applications that are ideal uses for the Cisco 2610XM-16TS bundle.
Cisco 2610XM-16TS router bundles are ideally suited for low-density modem dial-in applications at branch and remote offices as shown in Figure 1. With up to 16 asynchronous connections available for modems to be attached, the Cisco 2610XM-16TS is an alternative integrated modem solution. A multitude of WAN interfaces are available to allow customers to use high-speed T1/E1, xDSL, and other WAN connections to reach the Internet or leased-line private networks.
Low-Density Modem Concentration
For customers who need a method of monitoring real-time performance and status of network components, the Cisco 2600 Series can be deployed as shown in Figure 2 with asynchronous ports connected directly to the console or auxiliary ports of routers and other equipment in the network closet. This solution allows a network engineer to monitor and adjust equipment from a remote location, saving the customer the cost of sending people to-or stationing people near-all their network wiring closets.
