Pre-Owned, Used And Refurbished Cisco HWIC-1GE-SFP

HWIC-1GE-SFP is a Gigabit Ethernet HWIC with one SFP slot from Cisco, the industry leader in networking hardware. This High-Speed WAN Interface Card brings Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to Cisco 2800 Series and 3800 Series integrated service routers successfully accelerating applications such as inter-VLAN routing, Metro Ethernet access, and high-speed connectivity to LAN switches. The HWIC-1GE-SFP is equipped with one SFP slot and has a minimum software requirement of Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(8)T4 to operate. This product will support one module with the following platforms: Cisco 2811, Cisco 2821, and Cisco 2851. Two platforms are supported for the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845, while the HWIC-1GE-SFP does not support the Cisco 2801 platform at all.

Marketing Information

The single-port Cisco Gigabit Ethernet HWIC provides Gigabit Ethernet optical and copper connectivity in a compact form factor for all Cisco 2800 and 3800 series integrated services routers, except the 2801.

As an updated and enhanced version of the current WIC for the Cisco 2600 and 3700 chassis, the HWIC offers greater bandwidth and higher port density than the current WIC. The HWIC supports both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and inline power based on Cisco Systems technology, and is available in single-wide and double-wide form factors.The Gigabit Ethernet HWIC enables branch offices to cost-effectively use high-speed uplinks in numerous environments. The enhanced performance of Gigabit Ethernet in Cisco 2800 and 3800 series routers allows customers to enable new applications and services, as well as provide greater capacity for existing inter-VLAN routing and bridging capabilities. Additionally, branch offices can now connect to metropolitan-area networks (MANs). The HWIC provides Gigabit Ethernet connectivity but will not support line rate since the throughput is limited by the platforms.
