Hello, Guys

 I’m looking for feedback & optionally docs about implementation/template of 4G solutions with cisco products

 A site will be delivered in Sweden, with using a 4G solution provided by Telia.

Hardware will be an ISR G2 + EHWIC-4G-LTE

This is with a 3G card, but I would guess that 4G is going to be very similar.

Personally, unless I knew for sure that the router was going to be located in a closet with good cell reception, I would prefer to use an external cell card solution. For example, I've used a usb cell card with a cradlepoint adapter which provides Ethernet hand-off from the cell card. With this hardware I'm now allowed to move the antenna/cell card anywhere in the building that has an Ethernet cable and I don't need to use any special external antennas or signal-degrading antenna extension cables.

Now, even though my preference is unlike the config example I posted, the site that uses the HWIC-3G-CDMA-V works great. Regardless of hardware choice, once the interface is setup the rest of the config is normal routing with the addition of increased round-trip latency.

Thanks rauenpc. Do you have any more links related to 4G to be referred?

Nothing beyond what you've probably already found doing Google searches.

You ISP might have an example config as well. This could be a result of their own testing or even a different customer doing the same thing as you.
