Description 2801 2-pair G.SHDSL bundle, HWIC-2SHDSL,,SP Svcs, 128F/384D
The 2-pair (HWIC-2SHDSL) symmetric high-bit-rate DSL high-speed WAN interface cards (HWICs) provide G.SHDSL connectivity to a Wide Area Network. The 2-pair G.SHDSL HWIC provides two ports of 2-wire or one port of 4-wire connectivity options. These cards are supported in all integrated services routers that have HWIC slots. The 2-pair G.SHDSL HWICs supersede the existing G.SHDSL WAN Interface Card (part number WIC-1SHDSL-V3), which is a WIC-based G.SHDSL solution. The G.SHDSL HWICs provides higher performance and increased reach when compared to the G.SHDSL WIC. G.SHDSL technology offers customers high-speed, symmetrical WAN connectivity at a lower monthly cost than traditional WAN circuits. The 2-G.SHDSL HWICs together with Cisco integrated services routers provide businesses the necessary bandwidth for critical traffic such as voice and video conferencing, and enable customers to save money by integrating voice and data traffic on the same WAN link. Service providers can increase subscriber revenue by bundling services and offering differentiated service levels through service-level agreements. The first standardized multi-rate symmetric DSL, G.SHDSL has been an accepted worldwide technology standard based on ITU recommendation G.991.2. G.SHDSL is designed to transport rate-adaptive symmetrical data across a single copper pair at data rates up to 2.304 Mbps for a single pair or up to 4.608 Mbps over two pairs.
