You need the following cable:

CAB-232MT=

It is an TIA/EIA-232 (RS232) serial cable with the Cisco 60 pin on one end and a DB25 male on the other to connect to the modem.

Sorry, neglected the SS part of the part number.  The WIC-2A/S uses a smart serial connector so you need the CAB-SS-232MT(=) with a Smart Serial cable on one end and a DB25 on the other.
