Cisco 2600XM DSL Router Bundles

Overview

In order to provide customers with easy-to-order solutions to meet their Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) networking needs, six DSL router bundles are available based on the Cisco 2600XM modular multiservice router platforms.

These DSL bundles greatly simplify customer ordering. Using only one part number, customers can order a Cisco 2600XM router with all the necessary components at a reduced price compared to ordering each component separately. Each DSL bundle can also be ordered with additional WAN Interface Cards (WICs), Network Modules (NMs), and Advanced Integration Modules (AIMs). The DSL bundles are available in both Asymmetric DSL (ADSL) and Symmetric HighSpeed DSL (SHDSL) versions.

These bundles offer customers the ability to deploy high speed WAN access to businesses while offering advanced services such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and Voice over DSL (VoDSL).

DSL Bundle Features and Benefits

DSL helps companies reap the benefits of dramatically lowered WAN costs, improved global connectivity, and high reliability, while providing sufficient bandwidth to combine such critical traffic as voice and video with data. Additionally, service providers can increase their subscriber revenues by bundling services and by offering differentiated service levels through Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Cisco 2600XM Routers

The Cisco 2600XM modular multiservice access routers are ideal for DSL connectivity. They deliver a rich, integrated package of routing, firewall, dial, Packet Voice Gateway and VPN functions. The Cisco 2600 series together with the ADSL or SHDSL WAN Interface Modules (WICs) are the perfect solution for a variety of businesses requiring high-speed business-class DSL connectivity on a secure, high-performance modular platform.

ADSL WIC (WAN Interface Card)

The WIC-1ADSL included with the 2600XM-ADSL Router Bundles is based on the ITU G.992.1 (G.dmt) and ITU G.992.2 (G.lite) standards. The ADSL WIC operates at speeds of up to 8Mbps downstream and 1.5Mbps upstream. Multiple ADSL WICs can be provisioned per 2600XM to provide even higher bandwidth or WAN backup. The WIC-1ADSL with the 2600XM supports a variety of ATM QoS mechanisms. These included Class of Service (CoS) features Constant Bit Rate (CBR), Variable Bit Rate (VBR) in real time and non real time, and Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR). In addition support for a variety of IP QoS mechanisms is also be available.

SHDSL WIC (WAN Interface Card)

The WIC-1SHDSL-V2 included with the 2600XM-SHDSL Router Bundles is based on the ITU G.991.2 standard. The SHDSL WIC operates at symmetric speeds of up to 2.3Mbps over a single copper pair and 4.6Mbps over two copper pairs. Multiple SHDSL WICs per 2600XM can be provisioned for extra bandwidth or WAN backup. Additionally, the SHDSL WICs can operate back-to-back for campus environments. The WIC-1SHDSL-V2 with the 2600XM supports an identical set of ATM and IP QoS mechanisms as are available with the WIC-1ADSL with the 2600XM.

Integrated Voice and Data over DSL

Service providers and enterprise customers alike continue to expand deployment of voice services to remote customers. While more traditional technologies require separate data and voice systems, advanced QoS mechanisms merged with high-bandwidth WAN links like DSL make it possible to effectively combine voice and data traffic in the same WAN connection without sacrificing quality or reliability. Traffic management is key for this type of deployment. The Cisco 2600XM Series with a DSL WAN Interface Card currently supports a variety of ATM QoS mechanisms and IP QoS mechanisms, providing a scalable and manageable solution for toll-quality voice transmission while still maintaining ample data service. Specific benefits:

Service providers increase revenue by building differentiated service options based on premium, standard, or best-effort service classes

Enterprise customers reduce costs and increase service offerings to their remote branch offices by delivering voice connectivity without the high costs of dedicated voice links


Note: ADSL technology also inherently allows for the transmission of a single basic telephone service voice connection and traditional data traffic over the same pair of wires without the need for QoS. The WIC-1ADSL supports both splitter and splitterless (G.lite) modes for insertion into almost any ADSL environment when only a single basic phone line is needed.


Business-Class Security

The Cisco 2600XM Series can be optimized for VPNs, which allow for secure use of any shared network incorporating the same policies and levels of security and performance as a private network. VPN security can be delivered through hardware-based encrypted tunneling at 3DES IP Security (IPSec) speeds of up to 40 Mbps. This allows customers to deploy ADSL or SHDSL for secure remote access to corporate networks without the high costs and limitations often associated with point-to-point links. The 2600XM DSL bundles are equipped with extra memory to ease customers to deployment of VPN services.

In addition, the Cisco 2600XM Series incorporate Cisco IOS Firewall technology (CiscoSecure Integrated Software) supporting stateful firewall and intrusion detection. With an always-on DSL connection, Internet security is a critical component in protecting corporate resources from malicious attacks.

Deployment Flexibility

Many businesses today require data and voice connectivity between multiple buildings in a campus environment. Often copper wire is the only means to interconnect each facility to a campus' main building. G.shdsl technology allows customers to link two Cisco 2600/3700s with WIC-1SHDSL-V2 cards back-to-back over standard 26 AWG telephone wire and provide up to 4.6-Mbps WAN connectivity between the two sites. This enables deployment of data, voice, and video over existing copper wire without a costly infrastructure upgrade. Multiple WIC-1SHDSL-V2 pairs can be used to allow for additional bandwidth between locations.

Summary

The Cisco 2600XM bundles allow Enterprise and Service Providers to easily deploy the popular Cisco 2600XMs routers as DSL CPE and to take advantage of the incredible flexibility these platforms offer.

The Cisco 2600XM bundles are a great complement to the Cisco SOHO, 800, and 1700 DSL bundles also available from Cisco extending the range of functionality and price points available to the DSL CPE buyer.
