When using AT&T's Wireless WAN Connectivity Service in conjunction with the Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC solution, customers will have a truly diverse and highly secure wireless broadband backup to their Cisco ISR wireline data connections should those be disabled by cable cuts, weather or local access outages.
The Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC solution is the mechanism through which the worlds of wireline and wireless data are coming together for the first time within a single, enterprise-grade hardware platform," said Jeff Bradley, vice president, wireless business data services, for AT&T.
The Cisco ISR with an AT&T-powered Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC provides customers with such advantages as the following:
The Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC solution takes advantage of the Sprint Global MPLS VPN, a scalable platform that includes robust network security and redundancy measures, flexible access options and integration with Sprint wireless services to provide businesses with high-performing access to their information and applications whenever they need it.
At launch, Sprint is also offering the Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC solution as an extension of its managed network services and customer equipment support portfolio so customers can benefit from no-hassle implementation and managed services while experiencing increased reliability and security for their data.
By incorporating the Cisco 3G Wireless WAN HWIC solution directly into its small- and medium-sized business and enterprise branch office routers, Cisco has provided the flexibility, scalability, ease of installation and management necessary for Sprint customers to maximize the return on network investments.
