A Cisco WIC-1T interface card is an effective way to hook alarm systems or other POS devices into a legacy serial network. It is known for its reliability and compatibility with other network products. This single serial port uses Cisco's "5-in-1" connector system to maximize compatibility. A single LED light offers a convenient way to see whether the device is connected, disconnected, or transmitting information. Conveniently, the WIC-1T interface card uses the same cabling as the popular Cisco 2500 and 7000 serial ports. Smart serial crossover cables increase the compatibility of the WIC-1T with other devices as it changes any serial connector to be compatible with the "5-in-1" connector system. To set up a network from scratch, kits are available on eBay that provide a router along with multiple WIC-1T interface cards and mounting brackets for easy installation. There are also full starter labs that contain WIC-1T router switches for larger networking projects. Allow your information to move freely by using Cisco WIC-1T interface cards.
