  • Two integrated EHWIC slots are available on the Cisco 1941 for flexible configurations for support of two modules: One double wide HWIC-D or single wide EHWIC/HWIC module and a second single wide E- HIC/HWIC module are supported
  • Each HWIC Slot offers high data throughput capability ◦ Up to 1.6 Gbps aggregate towards the router processor ◦ Up to 2 Gbps aggregate to other module slots over MultiGigabit Fabric (MGF)

Key Business Benefits

The Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) provide superior services integration and agility. Designed for scalability, the modular architecture of these platforms enables you to grow and adapt with your business needs.

Services integration

The Cisco 2900 Series ISRs offer increased levels of services integration with voice, video, security, wireless, mobility, and data services, enabling greater efficiencies and cost savings.

Services On Demand

A single Cisco IOS® Software Universal image is installed on each ISR G2. The Universal image contains all of the Cisco IOS technology sets which can be activated with a software license. This allows your business to quickly deploy advanced features without downloading a new IOS image. Additionally, larger default memory is included to support the new capabilities.

The Cisco Services Ready Engine (SRE) enables a new operational model which allows you to reduce capital expenditures (CapEx) and deploy a variety of application services as needed on a single integrated compute services module.

High performance with integrated services

The Cisco 2900 Series enables deployment in high speed WAN environments with concurrent services enabled up to 75 Mbps.

A multigigabit fabric (MGF) enables high-bandwidth module-to-module communication without compromising routing performance.

Network agility

Designed to address customer business requirements, the Cisco 2900 Series modular architecture offers increased capacity and performance as your network needs grow.

Modular interfaces offer increased bandwidth, a diversity of connection options, and network resiliency.

Energy efficiency

The Cisco 2900 Series architecture provides energy-saving features that include the following:

The Cisco 2900 Series offers intelligent power management and allows the customer to control power to the modules based on the time of day. Cisco EnergyWise technology will be supported in the future.

Services integration and modularity on a single platform performing multiple functions, optimizes raw materials consumption and energy usage.

Platform flexibility and ongoing development of both hardware and software capabilities lead to a longer product lifecycle, lowering all aspects of the total cost of ownership, including materials and energy use.

High efficiency power supplies are provided with each platform.

Investment protection

The Cisco 2900 Series maximizes investment protection:

Reuse of a broad array of existing modules supported on the original Integrated Services Routers provides a lower cost of ownership

A rich set of Cisco IOS Software features carried forward from the original Integrated Services Routers and delivered in a single universal image.

Flexibility to adapt as your business needs evolve.


What do the different annexes specify?

The scope of the different annexes in G.992.5 is defined as follows:

  • Annex-A: This annex defines those parameters of the ADSL system that are unique to an ADSL service that is frequency division multiplexed with basic telephone service.
  • Annex-B: This annex defines those parameters of the ADSL system that are unique to an ADSL service that is frequency division multiplexed with ISDN BA on the same digital subscriber line.
  • Annex-M: This annex defines those parameters of the ADSL with an extended upstream bandwidth system that are unique to an ADSL service that is frequency division multiplexed with basic telephone service.
  • Annex-L: This annex defines those parameters of the ADSL system that are unique to a reach-extended ADSL2 service that is frequency division multiplexed with basic telephone service.

What is Annex-M?

  • This annex-M is an annex of the G.992.3 standard that extends the upstream bandwidth. This extension is achieved by doubling the upstream frequency range. With this feature, service providers can provision symmetric data rates for ADSL2 and ADSL2+ services with data rates up to 2 Mbps.
  • The ADSL2+ standard (ITU G.992.5) doubles the bandwidth used for downstream data transmission, effectively doubling the maximum downstream data rates, and achieving downstream data rates of up to 24 Mbps and upstream data rates of up to 1.5 Mbps. The exact data rates vary depending on the distance from the DSL access multiplexer (DSLAM), DSLAM type, line card and chipset, and firmware, noise profile, quality of copper, etc. The reach-extended ADSL2 standard (G.992.3) Annex L increases performance on loop lengths greater than 16,000 feet from the Central Office. The Annex M for G.992.3 (ADSL2) and G.992.5 (ADSL2+) was consented on October 2003. The Annex M for for G.992.3 (ADSL2) and G.992.5 (ADSL2+) contains PSD Masks for new ADSL2 service over POTS that increases the upstream data rates by doubling the number of US tones to 64. As a result, Annex M provides higher upload speeds for users by doubling the upstream data rate (when compared to Annex A) under certain loop and noise conditions.
