Cisco Fourth-Generation Network Interface Module Product Details
4G LTE can provide either primary connectivity or backup communications, offering network resiliency for business continuity. With greater agility and speed to deployment than wired solutions, 4G LTE can reduce network cost, and it complements wireline public and private network access. Practical applications of 4G LTE for organizations include parallel networks, primary connection, failover, in-vehicle connectivity, network convergence, and last-mile diversity. The 4G LTE NIM with the Cisco 4000 series Integrated Services Router leads the industry in bringing enterprise grade functions such as Quality of Service (QoS), Multi-Virtual Route Forwarding (Multi-VRF), advanced VPN, and Unified Communications solutions over LTE.The Cisco 4G LTE NIMs provide an enterprise-class 4G multimode LTE wireless WAN (WWAN) solution. With Cisco ISRs, 4G LTE is a powerful primary WAN access solution. Businesses can now run applications such as interactive video and telepresence on a primary 4G LTE connection, which is up to 50 times faster with far lower latency than third-generation (3G) links. These 4G modules support the latest Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 9 LTE standards. Cisco 4G multimode LTE WWAN NIMs provide persistent, reliable LTE connectivity with fallback and transparent handoff to earlier technologies. The cards provide bandwidth to support high-definition (HD) and peer-to-peer (P2P) video calls, providing customers with an excellent mobile broadband experience. The Cisco 4G LTE WWAN NIMs are tightly integrated with the services provided on the award-winning Cisco 4000 series ISR devices, which deliver secure data, voice, video, and mobility services. The Cisco 4G LTE WWAN NIMs are supported on the modular Cisco 4300 and 4400 series ISR devices.Enterprises are looking for ways to reduce deployment time, enable comprehensive media services, increase revenue, and improve business continuity. The Cisco 4G LTE WWAN NIMs, when coupled with a service provider's wireless data plan, provide a rapidly deployable, high-bandwidth, reliable, and secure solution for branch offices and remote sites. With 4G LTE data rates, the Cisco 4G LTE WWAN NIMs offer a primary WAN link solution capable of running comprehensive branch-office services, including voice and video services.
