The new ISR series router models comes with the support of Ethernet Switching Module(ESW) which can be termed as a replacement of Ethernet modules.

But with ESW modules you wont be able to assign ip address to induvidual ports of the module as you can do with normal ethernet modules.

But in case of ESW you can configure SVI(VLAN) interfaces and make each port a member of the vlan interface.

By doing so you can terminate your local lan segments onto the particular vlan..

you can refer the below link for more info on the modules/interfaces supported by Cisco ISR(2800 Series routers)..
