Can anyone confirm that the new 1941 routers now handle Gigabit at wire speed using the HWIC-1GE-SFP module?  The data sheet doesn't make it clear, see extract below:

  • Each HWIC Slot offers high data throughput capability
  • Up to 1.6 Gbps aggregate towards the router processor (?)

Thanks in advance,

None of the ISR routers, either G1 or G2 comes even close to Gigabit speed.

Check attached document. Allow some 20% performance improvement for the G2s.

If you need gigabit wire speed, use a L3 switch.
