The Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC is the enterprise-class 3G WWAN solution. Suitable for both backup and primary applications, this card supports the 3G standards and is backward-compatible with Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS), Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), and EVDO Rev 0/1xRTT. The Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC is tightly integrated with the services provided on the Cisco integrated services routers, which deliver secure data, voice, video, and mobility services.
Enterprises are looking for ways to reduce costs, increase revenue, and improve business continuity. The Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC, when coupled with a service provider wireless data plan, provides a cost-effective, rapidly deployable, reliable, and secure backup solution for remote sites and branch offices. If a network fails, the Cisco integrated services router routes mission-critical data to the Cisco 3G WWAN HWIC for transmission across the wireless infrastructure. In addition, the router can distinguish different types of traffic and allow only mission-critical traffic to flow over the backup interface.
