Cisco 3900 and Cisco 2900 Series Routers

Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) offer data functionality
through Gigabit Ethernet ports and security functionality with a virtual private
network (VPN) accelerator on the motherboard. Additional security features are
available with add-on hardware and software.
Cisco 2900 series routers and Cisco 3900 series routers also provide voice IP
telephony with digital signal processor (DSP) capability; and voice gateway, DSP
farm, IP-to-IP gateway, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CUCME)
via Cisco IOS. Cisco Unity Express (CUE) is provided through the use of add-on
hardware.
This series of ISRs have new slots that support next generation Enhanced High-Speed
WAN Interface Cards (EHWICs), Internal Services Modules (ISMs), Packet Voice
Data Modules (PVDM3s), Service Modules (SMs), and Services Performance
Engines (SPEs).
Access to the Cisco Multi-Gigabit Fabric (MGF) facilitates connection between
switch ports on the ISR without utilizing all of the external ports. A logical GE
interface on the ISR connects external and internal modules through the MGF for
improved LAN and WAN switching.

Gigabit Ethernet Ports
There are two different types of Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports available on Cisco 2900
series and Cisco 3900 series ISRs.

GE Ports
The GE RJ-45 copper interface ports support 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and
1000BASE-T.

SFP Ports
The small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports support 1000BASE-LX/LH,
1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-ZX, and Coarse Wavelength-Division Multiplexing
(CWDM-8) modules, as well as 100Mbs SFP modules.
The SFP port shares the same physical port as an RJ-45 GE port. The SFP port
supports auto-media-detection, auto-failover and remote fault indication (RFI), as
described in the IEEE 802.3ah specification.
The SFP port can be configured for the following behaviors:

Always use the RJ-45 port.

Always use the SFP port.

Always use the RJ-45 port but fail over to the SFP port if the RJ-45 port fails. This
is the default configuration.

Always use the SFP port but fail over to the RJ-45 port if the SFP port fails.

Always use the SFP port but fail over to the RJ-45 port if the SFP port fails.

USB Serial Console Port
The Mini-USB type B serial port has been enabled to perform management tasks on
12

the router. To use this port, you must install a Windows USB device driver before
establishing physical connectivity between a personal computer and the router.

Services Performance Engine
Services Performance Engines (SPEs) are modular motherboards for Cisco 3900
series ISRs. The SPE includes PVDM3 slots and system memory slots, and the ISM
slot. The Services Performance Engine provides a modular approach to system
upgrades. Slide out the SPE from the router to replace internal modules, or to upgrade
the SPE for improved router performance.

Service Modules
Service Modules (SM) are the largest modules on Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900
series ISRs. With the largest form-factor and power capacity, these modules deliver
high-performance service applications. SMs are physically larger than legacy network
modules, as a result, network modules require an adapter for installation.

Enhanced High-Speed WAN Interface Cards
Enhanced High-Speed WAN Interface Card (EHWICs) are the latest generation of
interface cards. EHWICs are installed in the EHWIC slot on the router. Legacy
interface cards, such as WAN interface cards (WICs), voice interface cards (VICs),
high-speed WAN interface cards (HWICs), double-width high-speed WAN interface
cards (DHWICs), and (EHWICs) are supported in the EHWIC slot on the router.
Services Performance Engine 200 and Services Performance Engine 250 support the
following legacy interface cards in the EHWIC slots.

Integrated Service Modules
Internal Services Modules (ISM) supersede advanced integration modules (AIM) on
Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series ISRs. The ISM is larger in size than the AIM.
Due to these physical differences, the AIM does not fit into the ISM slot and is no
longer supported on Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series ISRs.

Packet Voice Data Modules
The Packet Voice Data Modules (PVDM3s) are the latest generation of PVDMs. Firstgeneration PVDM-I cards are not supported in the PVDM3 slots. Due to physical
differences, PVDM2s require an adapter for installation in the PVDM3 slot.

Memory
Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series routers contain the following types of
memory:
15

 DRAM—Stores the running configuration and routing tables and is used for
packet buffering by the network interfaces. Cisco IOS software executes from
DRAM memory. Supported module types are Unregistered Dual In-Line Memory
Module (UDIMM) and very low profile registered DIMM (VLP RDIMM).
 Boot/NVRAM—256K of internal non-volatile memory. Stores the bootstrap
program (ROM monitor), the configuration register, and the startup configuration.
 Flash memory—External flash memory. Stores the operating system software
image. Each model supports 2 external CompactFlash 4-GB memory cards
provide a maximum 8-GB of CompactFlash.

Power Supplies
Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series ISRs support a variety of power supply
configurations. All power supplies are field replaceable and externally accessible with
the exception of the Cisco 2901 ISR. The Cisco 2901 ISR has an internal power
supply, which requires removing the cover for replacement.
If configured with dual power supplies or an Redundant power supplies (RPS), the
power supplies are hot swappable. RPSs require an RPS adapter. There are two
versions of the RPS adapter, one for the Cisco 2911 and one for the Cisco 2921 and
2951. Both use the Cisco Redundant Power System 2300.
Configurations include AC and DC (with and without IP), Dual DC, internal POE,
and POE boost.

Module and Router Power Consumption
Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series ISRs have energy efficiency features that
reduce power consumption. Some of the energy efficiency features are controlled by
the hardware, whereas other energy efficiency features are controlled by the software.
18

Fans, Ventilation, and Airflow
The Cisco 2911 and Cisco 3900 series ISRs have optional fan filters that are easy to
replace. The filters may be used to meet Network Equipment Building Systems
(NEBS) requirements, or to operate in dusty environments. When a filter becomes
dirty, discard it and replace it with a new one.
Fan speeds are controlled by the fan speed controller circuitry. To minimize noise, the
fans operate at one of several predetermined speeds and are dependent on the input
ambient air temperature.

Secure Key
20

A hardware secure key storage unit is provided on the Cisco 3925 and Cisco 3945
routers to safely store passwords and credentials. The secure key storage unit is a selfcontained tamper-resistant computer key-store that acts as a black box for credential
storage by accepting credentials and never returning them.
