The Layer 3 Cisco® 2-Port Fast Ethernet High-Speed WAN interface cards (HWICs) s
upported on Cisco Integrated Services Routers offer small-to-large-sized businesses and enterprise branch-office customers the option to add Layer 3 routed ports with many advanced features, including quality-of-service (QoS) and rate-limiting capabilities.
The new HWICs provide additional Layer 3 routed ports with features equivalent to those on the motherboard of the integrated services routers. These Fast Ethernet interfaces can be used for physical LAN segregation, creation of a demilitarized zone (DMZ), or as a WAN interface. Broadband customers can use them to connect to an alternate provider that delivers service on an Ethernet port.
In a branch office, the Cisco 1-Port Fast Ethernet HWIC provides a high-speed broadband uplink.
HWIC being used to bridge non-routable protocols while providing Layer 3 connectivity. The HWIC is also useful in situations that require IEEE 802.1q inter-VLAN.
The Cisco Fast Ethernet HWICs are singlewide interface cards, available as a 1-port HWIC (HWIC-1FE) and as a 2-port HWIC (HWIC-2FE), that provide Cisco modular and integrated services routers with additional Layer 3 routed ports.
The Fast Ethernet routed ports on the HWICs have the same characteristics and features as the onboard LAN interfaces for the integrated-services-router platforms. Along with Layer 3 connectivity, such as per-port access control lists (ACLs), routing, and IP addressing, these HWICs provide functions equivalent to those of onboard Fast Ethernet routed ports. The following is a partial list of features supported in Cisco IOS ® Software for the Fast Ethernet HWICs:
