The Cisco 4-Port Fast Ethernet Switch WIC extends the capabilities of Cisco 1700 Series modular access routers, providing four additional Fast Ethernet ports for expanded network deployments. When installed in the WIC or WIC/VIC slot of the router, this 4-port 10/100BASE-T switch WIC enables delivery of LAN services for connecting PCs, printers, server farms, wireless access points, or other LAN devices. The 10/100BASE-T Fast Ethernet port onboard the Cisco 1700 Series router can be connected to an external DSL or cable modem to provide high-speed broadband services.
The Cisco 4-Port Fast Ethernet Switch WIC is an intelligent Ethernet switch that provides several autodetect features, such as half- or full-duplex autosensing,
10/100BASE-T autosensing, and automatic crossover detection. These features reduce first-time configuration steps and allow for flexibility when your network architecture changes.
Because it is also a managed switch, the Cisco 4-Port Fast Ethernet Switch WIC offers more capabilities and business advantages than most integrated switching solutions available for routers and security appliances. Support for standards-based IEEE features such as 802.1Q VLAN, 802.1p traffic prioritization, and 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol makes the WIC a powerful component for Cisco 1700 Series modular access routers.
