HWIC-3G-HSPA or HWIC-3G-HSPA-G ?

Postby Guest » Fri Mar 16, 2007 8:43 pm

Dear All,

 

Would you please help me to choose between HWIC-3G-HSPA and HWIC-3G-HSPA-G?

 

From the data sheet http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps5949/ps7272/product_data_sheet0900aecd80600f41.html I can see that the only difference is the IOS image supported and the Sierra modem version:

 

"Software compatibility ...

... Modular Cisco 1900,2900,and 3900 series Integrated Services Routers supported with Cisco IOS Software release :

#
• Cisco IOS Software feature set: Universal IOS image[/quote:ctk4q8nb]#

• HWIC-3G-HSPA-A** supported with 15.1(1)T or later
#
HWIC-3G-HSPA-G supported with 15.1(1)T or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-S supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-V supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-B supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-T supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-R supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA=(spare only) supported with 15.0(1)M1 or later
...
Modem information ...

#
• HWIC-3G-HSPA: Sierra Wireless MC8790 (non-US market)
#
• HWIC-3G-HSPA-A**: Sierra Wireless MC8790 (US market)
#
• HWIC-3G-HSPA-G: Sierra Wireless MC8792V (non-US market)
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-S: Sierra Wireless MC5727
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-V: Sierra Wireless MC5727
#
• HWIC-3G-CDMA-B: Sierra Wireless MC5727

One other difference is the following:

 

"Frequency bands supported:

 

HWIC-3G-HSPA

#
• 850-, 1900-, and 2100-MHz WCDMA bands (HSUPA, HSDPA and UMTS)
#
• 850-, 900-, 1800-, 1900-MHz GSM bands (EDGE and GPRS)

HWIC-3G-HSPA-G

#
• 900-, 1900-, and 2100-MHz WCDMA bands (HSUPA, HSDPA and UMTS)
#
• 850-, 900-, 1800-, 1900-MHz GSM bands (EDGE and GPRS)
According to "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands#cite_note-0", the 900 band is used in Europe and the 850 band is used in the US.
As I am in Europe, the correct one would be "HWIC-3G-HSPA-G"?

Hello Mladen,
