Based on market leading technology, each standards-based voice module supports two or four voice channels through a variety of voice interface cards. The voice modules support several toll-quality compression schemes including G.711 for high-bit rate applications and G.729 for WAN applications. The Cisco 3600 series router is ideally suited to retail, banking and corporate infrastructures because it fully supports all Cisco IOS software routing protocols. The Cisco 2600 series extends the versatility, integration and power of the Cisco 3600 series to smaller, remote branch offices and complements the industry-leading Cisco 2500 series Cisco 2500 series routers
The Cisco 2500 series of routers are a series of 19" rack mount access routers typically used to connect ethernet or token ring networks via ISDN or leased serial connections (ie. Frame Relay, T1 etc). , Cisco's most cost-effective solution for mission-specific, branch office data requirements.
