SDSL support on Cisco router

Hi,

I'm wondering if Cisco routers support SDSL?

If yes, what are the router model and the module types?

I'm planning to plug in the SDSL cable directly to the router.

Thanks.

The Cisco 870 series routers support direct connection to DSL.

For modular routers you will need appropriate WIC.

Re: SDSL support on Cisco router

Hi Friend,

The answer to the first question was Yes Cisco routers used to support SDSL.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps295/products_quick_start09186a00800eaa1c.html

BUT AFAIK this product has reached end-of-sale or end-of-life status; it cannot be ordered and may no longer be supported

SDSL—Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line - A proprietary DSL technology that provides symmetrical high-speed access. Because SDSL is proprietary, service providers are not rolling out new deployments of SDSL networks. There are however, many existing SDSL lines in place where an SDSL modem is deployed at the customer premise. Cisco does not have SDSL compatible equipment, so when only an SDSL line is provisioned, users would connect a Cisco Dual Ethernet router such as a Cisco 1710 Security Access router, SOHO 71 router or Cisco 806 router, to the SDSL modem.

Dear Ankur,

What about routers such as the Cisco828 and the 878?

They do support a physical connection for SDSL and for the modular routers there is WIC-1SHDSL or the WIC-1SHDSL-v2.

I have done a lot of those in recent months and I can hardly believe that thgis technology is already completely obsolete.

Leo
