Re: WIC, HWIC, VWIC and VIC

Hi Mohammed,

- The HWIC standard is a superset of the WIC standard. The enhancement of HWIC over WIC includes:

? An 8-bit transmit, 8-bit receive dial-on-demand routing (DDR) interface capable of up to 400-Mbps transfer

? Supports interface cards with higher power requirements (5W)

? A double-wide form factor option that supports up to 10W of power

And the difference between VIC and VWIC is that VIC supports only voice but VWIC can support data or voice (E1, T1, G.703)

Hope that helps, if so pls rate.

Regards
