What interface module do I need to terminate an ISDN PRI on a Cisco 2811 Integrated Services Router?

I thought I needed a VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1 but now I think I might need a HWIC-1CI1T1-PRI. Or can I use either? Thanks.

Here's the Cisco tool for configuring hardware:  https://apps.cisco.com/qtc/config/jsp/configureHome.jsp

asavener,

I used the dynamic configuration tool and there are only about 100 interface modules in it. None of which explicitly say they are for ISDN. I forgot to mention that I'm terminating two ISDN PRIs. One for voice and one for data. Thanks for the link though.

You definitely need the HWIC-1CE1T1-PRI.  An ISDN PRI is NOT the same as a T1.

OK.  You save a little using the HWIC-2CE1T1-PRI (which has two ports) instead of two of the HWIC-1CE1T1-PRI cards.

asavener, thanks. Does it matter that I'm using one of the PRIs for voice? The notes for the HWIC-1CE1T1-PRI card refers only to WAN connectivity. I'm ordering the voice image and DSPs of course for the router.

The datasheet specifies "PRI for data".

I'd be wary expecting to work for voice.

I think you need a VIC (voice interface card) to use ISDN with voice.

Look like there's only the VIC2-2BRI-NT/TE - supports two BRI ISDN lines.

From another post:

"The card you had (VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1) will do the trick for both the voice and the data."

I'd suggest getting confirmation from Cisco pre-sales.
