    Newbie with a question here.

    I'm looking to get a Cisco 2620 router with a serial WIC for
    training purposes, but I don't know which WIC would serve me
    better- the WIC-2A/S or WIC-2T? I looked at Cisco's website
    but the amount of information is overwhelming and it really
    hasn't helped me arrive at a decision. Please share your
    recommendations and briefly explain why you picked one card
    over the other. I would really appreciate the help!

    Thanks!!!

    The WIC-2A/S is a two port SYNC/ASYNC card max rate 128kbps uses smart
    serial cables.

    The WIC-2T is a two port version of the WIC-1T, High Speed SYNC 5-in-1 card,
    supports higher speeds and more functions I think, Do not have all the
    specs.

    I use the WIC-1T(2T) cards for high speed circuits like T1 lines that uses
    external CSU/DSU, and other special funtions.

    I use the WIC-2A/S card mostly for remote mainframe SDLC connectivity and
    analog dialbackup connectivity. Modem attached to this card with PPP does
    much better than using the AUX port on the router (of course could use the
    two port modem cards, however sometimes we have mainframe connection and
    dialbackup on one card)

    Hope this gives you some ideas on their usage.

    The A/S is for Async/Sync and is limited in terms of how fast you can go
    (128Kbps I believe is the limit) Otherwise, it has the same
    functionality.
