    Product Overview

    Serial and asynchronous modules provide highly flexible connections for Cisco ® 1800, 1900, 2800, 2900, 3800, and 3900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs). These modules help customers enable applications such as WAN aggregation, transport for traditional protocols, console servers, and dial access servers. Customers can mix and match modules to tailor cost-effective solutions for common networking problems such as remote network management, external dial-modem access, low-density WAN aggregation, transport for traditional protocols, and high-port-density support.
    Cisco offers the following serial and asynchronous modules:

    • Cisco 4-Port Serial High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC-4T): Four high-speed serial ports (Figure 1A)

    • Cisco 4-Port Asynchronous/Synchronous High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC-4A/S): Four low-speed synchronous/asynchronous ports (Figure 1B)

    • Cisco 8-Port Asynchronous/Synchronous High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC-8A/S-232): Eight low-speed synchronous/asynchronous ports, EIA-232 only (Figure 1C)

    • Cisco 8-Port Asynchronous High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC-8A): Eight asynchronous EIA-232 ports (Figure 1D)

    • Cisco 16-Port Asynchronous High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC-16A): Sixteen asynchronous EIA-232 ports (Figure 1E)

    • Cisco 32-Port Asynchronous Serial Service Module (SM-32A): Thirty-two asynchronous EIA-232 ports Figure 1F)

    Common Applications

    These highly flexible interface cards enable several important applications.

    WAN Aggregation

    Serial interfaces can be used to aggregate WAN connections from remote sites. With support for serial speeds of up to 8 Mbps per port, the Cisco 4-Port Serial HWIC is well suited for low- and medium-density WAN aggregation (Figure 2).

    Figure 2. WAN Aggregation

    Transport for Traditional Protocols

    Serial and synchronous/asynchronous ports are well suited for transporting traditional traffic across a TCP/IP network. This capability enables network convergence (Figure 3), eliminating the need for costly separate leased lines for this traffic. Traditional protocols supported by Cisco IOS ® Software include:

    • Systems Network Architecture (SNA) and Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC) Protocol

    • Binary Synchronous Communications (Bisync) Protocol

    • X.25 Protocol

    Figure 3. Network Convergence

    Console and Terminal Server

    Asynchronous ports provide highly flexible connections that allow access to EIA-232 devices across a TCP/IP network. This capability allows out-of-band management of console and craft ports, allowing the network operator to manage a network of remote devices from a central location (Figure 4).

    Figure 4. Managing Multiple Remote Devices from a Single Location

    Dial Access Server

    Asynchronous HWICs can connect to external dial modems to provide low-density dial access servers (Figure 5).

    Connectors and Cabling

    Serial and asynchronous HWICs have connectors and cabling that allow high port densities in the compact HWIC form factor. Tables 1 through 4 show connector and cabling specifications.

    Smart Serial Cabling

    The Cisco 4-Port Serial HWIC and 4-Port Asynchronous/Synchronous HWIC each have four Smart Serial ports. These ports use the same connectors and cabling as the 2-port Serial WIC (WIC-2T) and 2-port Async/Sync WIC(WIC-2A/S).

    High-Density Synchronous/Asynchronous Cabling

    The Cisco 8-Port Asynchronous/Synchronous HWIC uses two high-density 4-port connectors. Each connector supports four ports of EIA-232 with data communications equipment (DCE) or data terminal equipment (DTE) interfaces. All four ports on one cable use the same DTE and DCE mode.

    High-Density Asynchronous Cabling

    The Cisco 8-Port Asynchronous HWIC and 16-Port Asynchronous HWIC use one (HWIC-8A) or two (HWIC-16A) high-density 8-port connectors. The 8-port asynchronous cable provides the high-density connector on one end and eight RJ-45 plugs on the other. RJ-45- to DB-25 modular adapters are used to convert the RJ-45 to a DB-25 DTE or DB-25 DCE connection.
