Hello everyone -
I have a Cisco 2811 router that I need to configure for a PRI line. This PRI line will be used for dial-up by special handheld devices that are used to transfer data from the handheld to an application server via means of a 2811 router.
That being said, the 2811 I currently have has a VWIC2-2MFT T1/E1 card. Can I use this card for the PRI? If yes, do I need to order the PVDM modules?
In a previous deployment, I remember we had to use HWIC card.
Any help would be appreciated!!
I've found the datasheet of the VWIC2
It looks like there is a dependency on the network module in which you insert it.
"Customers who choose to integrate data and voice in stages to preserve their investment in WAN interfaces. For example, the Cisco MFT VWIC2 can support data-only applications as a WAN interface, and then be reused to integrate data and voice with the drop-and-insert multiplexer function or configured to support packetized voice (voice over IP [VoIP] or voice over Frame Relay [VoFR]) when installed in the Digital T1/E1 Packet Voice Trunk Network Module (NM-HDV), 2 slot IP Communications Enhanced Voice/Fax Network Module (NM-HD-2VE), or IP Communications High-Density Digital Voice/Fax Network Module (NM-HDV2), IP Communications High-Density Digital Voice NM with 1 T1/E1 (part number NM-HDV2-1T1/E1), IP Communications High-Density Digital Voice NM with 2 T1/E1 (part number NM-HDV2-2T1/E1)."
So your understanding is correct the right module provides the missing resources.
