Show Interface - What is M4T Hardware Type?

I have a remote router which gives the following output when I do a show int.

I would like to clarify what the M4T Hardware Type is (i.e. Cisco part number etc) as I need to understand what speeds it can support.

#show int s3/1

Serial3/1 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is M4T


MTU 1500 bytes, BW 128 Kbit, DLY 20000 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 23/255, rxload 73/255

Encapsulation PPP, crc 16, loopback not set

Keepalive set (10 sec)

LCP Open, multilink Open

Last input 00:00:00, output 00:00:00, output hang never

Last clearing of "show interface" counters 2d05h

Queueing strategy: fifo

Output queue 0/40, 0 drops; input queue 0/75, 0 drops

5 minute input rate 37000 bits/sec, 71 packets/sec

Re: Show Interface - What is M4T Hardware Type?

I suppose this is a 7200 router. In that case, M4T should correspond to a PA-4T+.

Re: Show Interface - What is M4T Hardware Type?

do a "show run" the slot number is the first number second is the port so if you have a four port card it will look something like this:

interface Serial0/0

bandwidth 1544

ip address 255. x.x.x.x

ip nat outside

interface Serial0/1

no ip address



interface Serial0/2

no ip address



interface Serial0/3

no ip address


Also a sh ver may help you :

cisco 3640 (R4700) processor (revision 0x00) with 125952K/5120K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID 22027819

R4700 CPU at 100Mhz, Implementation 33, Rev 1.0

Bridging software.

X.25 software, Version 3.0.0.

SuperLAT software (copyright 1990 by Meridian Technology Corp).

TN3270 Emulation software.

Basic Rate ISDN software, Version 1.1.

2 FastEthernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s)

4 Serial network interface(s)

8 ISDN Basic Rate interface(s)

Integrated NT1's for 8 ISDN Basic Rate interfaces

DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity disabled.

125K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

Good luck.
