What is the difference between the serial interface of 2500 series Cisco routers and the serial interface of WAN cards (WIC-1t)? If there is no difference then is there any data-rate difference between the above two serial interfaces?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Both support speeds up to 2.048 Mbps. The interface on 2500 was built onto the motherboard, and it later started coming out as a module. WIC-1t is a module having one E1/T1 interface, and it is still available, but 2500 series Cisco routers are long withdrawn.

Hope this helps.
