FXO Router Support

Hi all, i am looking to learn SIP, just for something to add to my knowledge. i have access to a CIsco 1721 router. Does this router support a 2 Port FXO card? if not, can someone suggest an inexpensive solution?

Hi,

There are some FXO's supported by a 1721, I would like to know the correct part number of the card in order to determine whether or not this is supported by your system.

Hi Drummond,

Unfortunately your router does not support Voice HW, here is the link where you can find this information:

<http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/products_tech_note09186a00800e73f6.shtml>

Unfortunately there is not an FXO card supported by 1721 since this model only supports WIC's and FXO or FXS cards are VIC's, I am enclosing the 1721 reference page for you:

Hope this answers all your questions,

Re: FXO Router Support

do you know of an inexpensive solution. i am just trying to setup a small lab, and not spend a fortune in hardware. i want to setup SIP connectivity from my 7960, so i could use my house POTS line with my 7960. tryin to grab more skills.

Hi,

Actually the best option to accomplish what you are trying to do is by installing a 1750, 1751,1760 or 2600XM with a NM-1V (only for the and the VIC-2FXO card that you already have, other solutions are more expensive and not an option for a small lab, probably you can get a 1750, 1751,1760 or 2600xm through Cisco Authorized Refurbished Equipment

<http://www.cisco.com/web/ordering/ciscocapital/or6/or17/order_refurbished_equipment_high_level_listing.html>

This is because the 1700 and 2600XM series have reached their end of sale cycle.

Hope this helps
