The Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR) revolutionize WAN communications in the enterprise branch. With new levels of built-in intelligent network capabilities and convergence, the routers specifically address the growing need for application-aware networking in distributed enterprise sites. These locations tend to have lean IT resources. But they often also have a growing need for direct communication with both private data centers and public clouds across diverse links, including Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs and the Internet.
- The Cisco 4000 Series provides up to four built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for WAN or LAN.
- Based on the platform, some of the 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports can support Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based connectivity in addition to RJ-45 connections, enabling fiber or copper connectivity.
- Optionally, depending on the platform, up to 30W PoE+ can be enabled on two of the built-in front panel Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to provide power to external devices such as fourth-generation (4G) LTE routers.
- An additional dedicated Gigabit Ethernet port is provided for device management.
