part/model number?

Unanswered Question

all my remote sites have a Cisco 2801 router with a T1 wic card connected back to a Cisco 7300 router. If possible, what i would like to do is install a ISND WIC card in the 2801 routers at the remote sites for backup. My question is does Cisco make a wic card or blade for the Cisco 7300 router, so that if the T1s go down at the remote site the router would switch over to the ISDN line. What parts or model numbers would i need to order? Some type of PRI/ISDN card for the 7300 and ISDN WIC card for the 2801 router.


I have this problem too.

The 7300 does not support ISDN. You will need and ISR router (smaller again is the 2801) for this.

The BRI card for the 2801 is WIC 1B-S/T-V3.

However the tendency today is to do backup via VPN over ADSL. In this case the card for the 2801 would be WIC-1ADSL, then with an IOS upgrade you can use the onboard VPN encryption module of the 2801.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
