I'm fairly new to connecting locations. We will be adding a new office/location to our network and I have to figure out how. We currently have a 3745 Router at our Main Data Center and a 3550 at the new location. From my understanding, we are connecting the new location via T1 P2P. So my question is on our Main 3745 we will need to order a WIC-1DSU-T1-V2, but I'm unsure if we need one for the 3550. Any insight will be helpful.

The research that I have done shows the 3745 supports WIC using a WIC-1DSU-T1-V2 card. Can you confirm? I'm just not sure how to connect the T1 into the 3550 Router or if I need to.

Sorry, I thought we were talking about a 3750 not a 3745. The 3745 does support the WIC however the 3550 deos not. If you are connecting the site via a T1 then both sites need to be able to terminate the T1 into a T1 interface. You may need to add a T1 capable device at the 3550 site if you do not have one already

Thanks Harbor235

I guess I will have to change the order at the new location froma 3550 to a 2800 Router. Appreciate the response.
