- Product Overview
The Cisco 1921 builds on the best-in-class offering of the Cisco 1841 Integrated Services Routers. All Cisco 1900 Series Integrated Services Routers offer embedded hardware encryption acceleration, optional firewall, intrusion prevention, and advanced security services. In addition, the platforms support the industry’s widest range of wired and wireless connectivity options such as Serial, T1/E1, xDSL, Gigabit Ethernet, and third-generation (3G) wireless
|Modular platform||• The Cisco 1921 ISRs are highly modular platforms with multiple module slots to provide connectivity and services for varied branch-office network requirements.
• The ISRs offer an industry-leading breadth of LAN and WAN connectivity options through modules to accommodate field upgrades to future technologies without requiring replacement of the platform.
|Processors||• The Cisco 1921 is powered by high-performance multicore processors that support growing demands of branch-office networks by supporting high-throughput WAN requirements.|
|Embedded IP Security/Secure Sockets Layer (IPsec/SSL) VPN hardware acceleration||• Embedded hardware encryption acceleration is enhanced to provide higher scalability, which, combined with an optional Cisco IOS Security license, enables WAN link security and VPN services (both IPsec and SSL acceleration).
• The onboard encryption hardware outperforms the advanced integration modules (AIMs) of previous generations.
|Integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports||• All onboard LAN and WAN ports are 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet routed ports.|
|Innovative universal-serial-bus (USB)-based console access||• A new, innovative, mini-Type B USB console port supports management connectivity when traditional serial ports are not available.
• The traditional console and auxiliary ports are also available. You can use either the USB-based console or the RJ-45-based console port to configure the router.
|Optional external power supply for distribution of PoE||• An optional upgrade to the power supply provides inline power (802.3af-compliant PoE) and Cisco Standard Inline Power to optional integrated switch modules.|
