Cisco 3200 Series 802.11B/G Wireless Mobile Interface Card

The Cisco® 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g Wireless Mobile Interface Card (WMIC) for Cisco 3200 Series routers provides integrated 802.11b/g wireless WAN or LAN capabilities. Designed in the same ruggedized, compact PC/104-Plus form factor as the Cisco 3200 Series Router, the Cisco 2.4 GHz 802.11 WMIC is engineered to be integrated as part of a Cisco 3200 Series Router solution, eliminating the need to use external 802.11b/g bridges or access points. The integrated WMIC helps enable a mobile network in vehicles as well as outdoor wireless infrastructure

The Cisco 3200 Series Wireless and Mobile Routers (see Figure 1) offer organizations such as public safety, homeland security, and transportation agencies the following key solution benefits:

• A rugged Cisco IOS router in a modular compact design, suited to create mobile networks in and around vehicles

• Standards-based connectivity for a wide range wireless technologies including 802.11b/g, 4.9 GHz, 3G cellular networks, satellite, and upgradeability to future wireless technologies

• Always-on wireless access for vehicle networks with easy mobility through mobile IP regardless of location or movement

• Advanced IP services through standards-based Cisco IOS Software, offering robust network security, reliability, quality of service (QoS), and remote management functions

• Rugged enclosure from Cisco or options for third party enclosures
