Cisco® 4G LTE 2.5 Enhanced High-Speed Wireless WAN Interface Cards (EHWICs)

Product Overview

Fourth-Generation Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE) is being used to provide both primary connectivity and network resiliency for business continuity. With greater agility and speed to deployment than wired solutions, 4G LTE reduces network cost and complexity while maintaining ROI. Practical applications of 4G LTE for distributed enterprises include parallel networks, primary connection, failover, in-vehicle, network convergence, and wireless WAN diversity. The Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs for Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) are the industry leaders in bringing enterprise-grade wire-line-like functionality such as quality of service (QoS) for cellular, Multi-VRF for cellular, and unified communications solutions over LTE.

The Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs are the first enterprise-class multimode 4G LTE wireless WAN (WWAN) solution. With 4G LTE, WWAN is a primary WAN link solution. Businesses can now run applications such as interactive video and telepresence on a primary 4G LTE WWAN link, which is 10 to 15 times faster and has 5 times lower latency than 3G links. These cards support the latest Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 8 Category 4 LTE standards. Cisco multimode 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs 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 EHWICs are tightly integrated with the services provided on the award-winning Cisco ISR G2 devices, which deliver secure data, voice, video, and mobility services. The EHWICs are supported on the modular Cisco 1900, 2900, and 3900 Series ISR G2 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 EHWICs, 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 EHWICs offer a primary WAN link solution capable of running comprehensive branch-office services, including voice and video services.

 

The Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs include the following models:

EHWIC-LTE-LA, EHWIC-LTE-CI, and EHWIC-LTE-JN: Multimode LTE 2.5 for carriers that operate FDD LTE 700-MHz (band 28), 850-MHz (band 5 CLR), 850-MHz (bands 18 and 19 Low), 900-MHz (band 8), 1500-MHz (band 21), 1800-MHz (band 3), 2100-MHz (band 1), or 2600-MHz (band 7) networks; the multimode Cisco 890G Series 4G LTE 2.5 ISRs are backward-compatible with Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS) and Dual-Carrier High-Speed Packet Access Plus (DC-HSPA+): 800 MHz (band 19 Japan), 850 MHz (band 5), 850 MHz (band 6 Japan), 900 MHz (band 8), 1800 MHz (band 9), 2100 MHz (band 1), and TD-SCDMA 39.

  • Multimode LTE 2.5 for carriers that operate TDD LTE 1900 MHz (band 39), 230 MHz (band 40), 2500 MHz (band 41), or 2600 MHz (band 38).
  • Multimode LTE 2.5 for carrier aggregation band combinations: 1+(8,18,19,21); 3+(5,7,19,28); 7+(5,7,28); 19+21, 38+38, 39+39, 40+40, 41+41.

 

Main Business Benefits

Primary connectivity: The Cisco multimode 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs provide persistent, reliable LTE connectivity with fallback and transparent handoff to earlier technologies. They enable high-performance, secure, reliable, and transparent multimedia applications anywhere and anytime and allow customers to deploy and manage the same device for multiple applications, simplifying deployment and management. For businesses requiring rapid setup or temporary connectivity, 4G LTE WWAN offers the ability to deploy a new site quickly. Using the integrated services available on the Cisco ISRs, the EHWICs can provide instant and mobile communications during disasters and service outages. Figure 2 illustrates the use of 4G LTE for primary connectivity.

WAN Backup: Resilient WAN access is a crucial requirement for branch offices connecting to a corporate site or the Internet. Although DSL, Frame Relay, ISDN, and dialup are common choices for backup if a primary WAN link fails, a nonterrestrial data path such as a 4G LTE WWAN provides enhanced WAN diversity. Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs, combined with the Cisco ISRs, offer the capability to automatically initiate connection over the 4G LTE WWAN when the primary WAN link is unavailable. In addition, you can use Cisco 4G LTE WWAN the EHWICs to provide supplemental bandwidth when the primary WAN link is overloaded.

 

Main Features and Benefits

  • Integrated 4G LTE WWAN broadband: With the 4G LTE WWAN modem integrated into the router, you gain the benefits of simplified installation and management. In addition, the Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs are tightly integrated with Cisco ISRs, which run the industry-leading Cisco IOS® Software, giving access to all the advanced features of Cisco IOS Software, such as QoS, intelligent network queuing, and robust security.
  • Performance: With increasing data use and the proliferation of web-based applications at remote sites, there is an increasing need for high-speed (broadband) data connections to run mission-critical applications at these sites. 4G LTE WWAN services promise low-latency links at high speeds.
  • Short installation time: Businesses sometimes have to wait weeks or months to get data circuits installed at new locations. For temporary or seasonal sites, wireless data services allow instant connectivity anywhere there is cellular coverage, and rapid deployment allows you to quickly set up networks with WAN connectivity.
  • Network resiliency through WAN diversity: WAN connectivity is crucial to the functioning of your business, where any downtime means a loss of productivity and lost opportunity. Staying connected and operational during a network outage can be vital. A wireless connection for backup to a remote site provides protection against line outages and an additional level of redundancy, because the 4G LTE WWAN infrastructure is often served by separate facilities, providing redundancy for the entire local loop. With 4G LTE WWAN, Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) provides transport-independent, intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure connectivity on any device, over any connection, and to any cloud.
  • Portability: You can easily relocate wireless routers and Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs wherever coverage is available.
  • Multiple packet data networks: You can configure multiple active access point names (APNs) so that Internet traffic can be kept separate from corporate traffic.
