A Cisco server can provide the best conditions for hosting providers and network administrators' activities. Using the Cisco 3rd generation hardware is a way to achieve a successful and efficient corporative network organization.
The Cisco 675 is a router that is created on the base of the asynchronous digital subscriber line (ADSL). This is not an expensive device for the Internet access. Specialists recommend it for installing for small offices or for telecommuters. The Cisco 675 has a compact size and it does not require installing an external phone filter. This device is simple and not an expensive solution, based on the Cisco architecture for providing the new generation services.
The Cisco server provides a fast and secure access to the Internet and corporative networks with this router. It provides an opportunity to connect the Cisco server to the networks, using the PPP or ATM protocols.
The Cisco 675 has a network interface 10/100BaseT to connect a small local network or a PC. The device offers a reliable routing and integration of the ADSL service for providing an access to the home or corporative network. Administrators can also use this device to connect the Cisco server to the Internet or the global networks. The embedded DHCP Cisco server can automatically assign IP addresses to the devices in the local network. In addition, computers can use a single IP address with the help of the Port Address mechanism for the Internet connection. The Cisco EZ-DSL technologies allow to avoid a splitter usage to connect a phone. It makes the installation of hardware simpler and less expensive.
The Cisco server and router support standard physical interfaces. An automatic establishment of the Rate-adaptive DSL interface permits an easy achievement of its top value. The maximal speed of data transfer from a subscriber is 7 Mbit/sec and 1 Mbit/sec to a subscriber. The router uses the Carrierless Amplitude Phase for signal coding and decoding.
The ADSL connection supplies the packages' encapsulation to the ATM cells on the adaptation layer. The initialization and configuration could be performed via an asynchronous port with theRJ-45 cutoff point. The built-in phone port has a filter that is convenient for the phone connection if the external splitter is absent. The router has light-diode indicators to show a power supply switching on, a technical disrepair and the ADSL line and Ethernet port state. The usage of the Cisco EZ-DSL technology grants the maximal DSL line speed with automatic defining of its quality. The router is compatible with the access multiplexors of the series Cisco 6100 and Cisco 6200 by DSL protocols.
The Cisco router supports IP - routing by the protocols PPP over ATM and RFC 1483. It supports the PAT protocol for the minimal number of the officially registered IP-addresses. In addition, the router supports the DHCP relay. There are also such interesting functions as an ability to use the IP Control Protocol (IPCP) for assigning an IP address and mask, a support of the IGMP Proxy function for video applications and a support of the bridge connections by the RFC 1483 for the remote configuring and administration.
