Installing the C881G-U-K9 ISR
To install the C881G-U-K9 ISR, follow the instructions in the Cisco 860 Series, Cisco 880 Series, and
Cisco 890 Series Integrated Services Routers Hardware Installation Guide. This guide describes the
equipment and the procedures for installing the Cisco 860 series, 880 series, and 890 series ISRs.
However, the instructions for connecting the 3G card in the hardware installation guide do not apply to
the C881G-U-K9 ISR because it does not have a slot for adding a 3G card. Instead, a 3G modem is
embedded in the router.
Installing the SIM Cards
You can install one or two SIM cards into the C881G-U-K9 ISR. Installing two SIM cards lets you take
advantage of the Dual SIM feature, which provides a failover mechanism in case the primary SIM card
fails.
Figure 8 shows the SIM car installation steps.

Configuration Prerequisites
The following are prerequisites for configuring Cisco EHWIC and 880G for
3.7G (HSPA+)/3.5G (HSPA):
•
You must have service availability on your EHWIC card or C801G ISR from a carrier. In addition,
you must have network coverage at your router’s location. For a complete list of supported carriers,
see the data sheet at:
http://www.cisco.com/go/3g
•
You must subscribe to a service plan with a wireless service provider.
•
You must obtain and install a SIM card before configuring the EHWIC cards. For instructions on
how to install the SIM card, see Connecting Cisco EHWIC-3G-HSPA-U to the Network. In the case
of C881G-U-K9, obtain and install one or two SIM cards as described in Installing the SIM Cards,
page 23.
•
You must install the required antennas before you configure the EHWIC cards. See Table 6 for more
information.
•
You must check your LEDs for signal reception as described in Table 2.
•
You should be familiar with the Cisco IOS software, beginning with Release 15.1(3)T or later. (See
the Cisco IOS documentation).
•
To configure your 3G data profile, you need the following information from your service provider:
– Username (if required by your carrier)
– Password (if required by your carrier)
– Access Point Name (APN)

Restrictions for Configuring 3G
The following restrictions apply to configuring the Cisco 3G EHWIC cards and C880G ISRs:
•
Data connection—Data connection can be originated only by the 3G EHWIC card or the G3 modem
in the C880G ISR.
•
Throughput—Due to the shared nature of wireless communications, the experienced throughput
varies depending on the number of active users or congestion in a given network.
•
Latency—Cellular networks have higher latency compared to wired networks. Latency rates depend
on the technology and carrier. Latency may be higher because of network congestion.
•
Carrier restrictions—Any restrictions that are a part of the terms of service from your carrier.
•
Performance—Multiple PDP contexts are supported only in the EHWIC card. This requires an
additional 2 Mb memory.
Overview of UMTS/GSM Data Network
The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) is the most widely deployed cellular network in
the world. It is based on the specification from European Telecommunications Standards Institute
(ETSI).
GSM was primarily designed for voice and was circuit switched but due to the popularity of cellular
networks and the great demand for data services, GPRS was introduced as a packet switched data overlay
over the GSM radio network.
The radio and network resources of GPRS are accessed only when data actually needs to be transmitted
between the GPRS mobile user and the GPRS network.
GPRS introduced several new network nodes into the GSM architecture for packet switching, they form
the Mobile Packet Core. The Mobile Packet Core includes the Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN) and
the GPRS Gateway Support Node (GGSN).
The SGSN is the node which in some ways carries out the same function as the Foreign Agent in Mobile
IP. It tunnels IP packets towards the GGSN and detunnels packets back from the GGSN. It also carries
out mobility managed and billing.
The GGSN is the node which carries out the role in GPRS equivalent to the Home Agent in Mobile IP.
The GGSN provides the connectivity to the IP network and the SGSN. It is responsible for IP address
assignment and is the default router for the connected User Equipment (UE).

with Cellular EHWIC
The Base Transceiver Station (BTS) and Base Station Controller (BSC) are located at the Cell site and
are the common nodes for both voice and data services. They provide the radio or the physical layer
connectivity between the mobile user and the mobile network.
As the BSC voice and data traffic get segregated, the voice traffic goes to the Mobile Switching Center
(MSC), while the data traffic is sent to the GGSN. From the GGSN, the data packets either go directly
to the internet or they can be backhauled to the customer data center for a VPN connection.
UMTS is a 3G wireless system that delivers high-bandwidth data and voice services to mobile users.
UMTS evolved from GSM. UMTS has a new air interface based on GSM and an IP core network based
on general-packet radio service (GPRS). The nodes in a UMTS network are almost the same as in a
GSM/GPRS network.
BTS and BSC have been renamed to Node B and Radio Network Controller (RNC), respectively. UMTS
addresses the growing demand of mobile and Internet applications for new capacity in the overcrowded
mobile communications sky. The new network increases transmission speed to 2 Mbps per mobile user
and establishes a global roaming standard.
High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) is a collection of two mobile protocols - High Speed Downlink
Packet Access (HSDPA) and High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA), that extends and improves the
performance of existing CDMA/UMTS protocols.
HSDPA and HSUPA provide increased performance by using improved modulation schemes and by
refining the protocols by which 3G modem and base stations communicate. These improvements lead to
a better utilization of the existing radio bandwidth provided by CDMA.
HSPA improves the end-user experience by increasing peak data rates of up to 14 Mbit/s in the downlink
and 5.76 Mbit/s in the uplink. It also reduces latency and provides up to five times more system capacity
in the downlink and up to twice as much system capacity in the uplink, reducing the production cost per
bit compared to original CDMA protocols.

Multiple PDP contexts
The dual primary PDP contexts feature is supported on the EHWIC3.7G (HSPA+)/3.5G (HSPA) cards.
Each PDP context is the separate data link over common 3G data connection. It has its own IP address
and its own data and QoS profile. For each PDP context, the new IOS cellular interface is created once
the EHWIC is initialized in the system. In addition to that, each cellular interface has a corresponding
TTY line. This is similar to HWICs with multiple ports.
The EHWIC3.7G (HSPA+)/3.5G (HSPA) cards have Cellular 0/<ehwic_slot>/0, Cellular
0/<ehwic_slot>/1, IOS interfaces. The last number in the triple numbering scheme is the port number.
The multiple cellular interfaces in these 3G HWIC cards behave independently. Any of them can be used
to establish data connection. However, only the first interface, e.g. Cellular 0/<ehwic_slot>/0 can be
used to exercise the full set of modem AT commands using the Reverse Telnet feature.
The HSPA/HSPA+ cellular modem allows you to configure up to16 profiles. The QoS profile configured
for an interface is selected by the ATDT*98*#<profile_number>#...“CONNECT” (HSPA modem) or
AT!SCACT=1,<profile_number>...“OK” (HSPA+ modem) command in the chat script corresponding
to a cellular interface. You must use a different data profile for each cellular interface.
Note
If all the three interfaces are used, you must create three separate chat scripts in the router configuration
Overview of SNMP MIBs
Simple Management Network Protocol (SNMP) development and use is centered around the
Management Information Base (MIB). An SNMP MIB is an abstract data base—a conceptual
specification for information that a management application may read and modify in a certain form.
This does not imply that the information is kept in the managed system in that same form. The SNMP
agent translates between the internal data structures and formats of the managed system and the external
data structures and formats defined for the MIB.
The SNMP MIB is conceptually a tree structure with conceptual tables. Cisco 3G MIB is discussed in
more detail in the next section. Relative to this tree structure, the term MIB is used in two senses. In one
sense it is actually a MIB branch, usually containing information for a single aspect of technology, such
as a transmission medium or a routing protocol.
A MIB used in this sense is more accurately called a MIB module, and is usually defined in a single
document. In the other sense a MIB is a collection of such branches. Such a collection might comprise,
for example, all the MIB modules implemented by a given agent, or the entire collection of MIB modules
defined for SNMP.
A MIB is a tree where the leaves are individual items of data called objects. An object may be, for
example, a counter or a protocol status. MIB objects are also sometimes called variables.
MIBs can be classified into three categories:
•
IF MIBs—describes interface statistics
•
Cisco-Entity-Vendortype-OID-MIB.my—ENTITY-MIBs are used to provide general hardware type
for both the EHWIC and the modem. CISCO-ENTITY-VENDORTYPE-OID-MIB assigns OIDs for
Cisco components (including the HWICs & the modems). The OIDs are then used as the values of
entPhysicalVendorType in the ENTITY-MIB.

3G Cellular WAN MIB Architecture
This section describes the MIB definition and implementation support for Cisco's cellular 3G WAN
products on the customer premises equipment (CPE) end.
The 3G Cellular WAN MIB supports the CDMA and GSM set of cellular standards and includes the
following technologies:
•
GSM—GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA
•
CDMA—1xRTT/EVDO RevA/EVDO RevB
The 3G cellular MIB uses indexes from the cellular interface and from the modem. You can obtain the
interface index using IF-MIBs and the modem index using the ENTITY MIBs.
The 3G MIB definition includes the following major sub-trees:
•
Common objects
•
CDMA objects
•
GSM objects
•
Traps or notifications
You can use MIB object c3gStandard defined in the c3gWanCommonTable to distinguish between
CDMA or GSM and implementing MIB for CDMA or GSM.
Note
Cisco 3G MIB supports all SNMP versions including V1, V2, V2C and V3.
At a high level architecture, the Cisco 3G WAN MIBs are divided into two groups and have the following
structure:
1.
ciscoWan3gMIBNotifs—this group defines all the trap events for Cisco 3G WAN MIBs
2.
ciscoWan3gMIBObjects—this group defines all the MIB objects for Cisco 3G WAN MIBs
ciscoWan3gMIBObjects
The ciscoWan3gMIBObjects group has the following sub-groups:
– c3gWanCommonTable—defines the common MIB objects for both CDMA and GSM.
– c3gWanCdma—defines the MIB objects specific for CDMA set of standards (3GPP2).
– c3gWangsm—defines the MIB objects specific for GSM set of standards (3GPP).
– c3gWanLbs—defines the MIB objects specific for GPS.
– c3gWanSms—defines the MIB objects specific for SMS.
c3gWanCdma
Under c3gWanCdma, there are seven sub-groups:
•
c3gCdmaSessionTable for CDMA session related objects.
•
c3gCdmaConnectionTable for CDMA connection related objects.
•

Restrictions
•
For the router that runs the SNMP agent, you must configure appropriate access control (e.g.
SNMP-server community) using the Cisco IOS CLI for the NMS and agent to work properly.
•
It is strongly recommended that you configure SNMP V3 with authentication/privacy when
implementing SNMP SET operation.
Configuring 3G
Note
The procedure to configure 3G on both modular and fixed Cisco ISRs is the same except for slot
numbering.
For example, for 3G HWICs, the numbering for slot 0, wic 0 and port 0 would be 0/0/0 for all commands.
For a fixed Cisco ISR, it would be only 0.
Please refer to platform-specific documentation for details on slot numbering.

address negotiated. During IPCP, the network ensures that the correct static IP address is allocated to
the device. If a tunnel interface is configured with ip address unnumbered <cellular interface>, it is
necessary to configure the actual static IP address under the cellular interface, in place of ip address
negotiated. For a sample cellular interface configuration, see the “Basic Cellular Interface
Configuration (HSPA-U)” section on page 60.

Configuring DDR Backup
To monitor the primary connection and initiate the backup connection when needed, the router can use
one of the following methods:
•
Backup Interface—The backup interface that stays in standby mode until the primary interface line
protocol is detected as down and then is brought up.
•
Floating Static Route—The route through the backup interface has an administrative distance that
is greater than the administrative distance of the primary connection route and therefore would not
be in the routing table until the primary interface goes down.
•
Dialer Watch—Dialer watch is a backup feature that integrates dial backup with routing capabilities.
Configuring Interfaces to Use a Backup Interface
To configure one or more interfaces to use a backup interface, use the following commands, beginning
in global configuration mode.

Configuring DDR Backup Using Floating Static Route
To configure a floating static default route on the secondary interface beginning in the global
configuration mode, perform the following tasks.
Note
Make sure you have ip classless enabled on your router.
SUMMARY STEPS
1.
configure terminal
2.
ip route network-number network-mask {ip address | interface} [administrative distance] [name
name]
DETAILED STEPS
Step 1
Command or Action
Purpose
router# configure terminal
Enters global configuration mode from the terminal.
Example:
router# configure terminal
Step 2
router(config)# ip route network-number network-mask
{ip-address | interface} [administrative distance]
[name name]
Establishes a floating static route with the
configured administrative distance through the
specified interface.
Note
Example:
router(config)# ip route 0.0.0.0 Dialer 2 track 234
A higher administrative distance should be
configured for the route through the backup
interface, so that it is used only when the
primary interface is down.
(Optional) Voice Initiated Data Callback or Remote Dial-In
The dial-in feature uses the cellular voice connection request to initiate data call back from an EHWIC.
Note
For HWICs which support multiple PDP contexts, callback will be initiated only for the first PDP
context, for example, for the interface Cellular 0/x/0.
To configure voice-initiated data callback or remote dial-in on your modem, use the following
commands in the privileged EXEC mode.

Configuring Cisco EHWIC and 880G for 3.7G (HSPA+)/3.5G (HSPA)
DETAILED STEPS
Step 1
Command or Action
Purpose
router# dialer caller <number> callback
Configures caller ID screening for a dialer rotary
group interface or to bind an incoming call to a
particular dialer profile.
Example:
router# dialer caller 23456789 callback
Use the no dialer caller callback command to
disable callback.
Note
In general, the use of this command
performs call screening in non-exact mode.
It means that the leading numbers
comparison is ignored when one of the
configured caller ID or incoming call caller
ID number is shorter. The comparison is
done only for digits of the shorter number.
When you configure the dialer caller
callback command on the cellular interface,
the exact mode is enforced if no wildcard
characters, like x are specified in the dialer
string. In the exact mode, if the numbers do
not match in length or in digits, the callback
will fail.
Step 2
router# show caller
Shows caller ID screening.
Step 3
router# debug cellular <unit> messages callback
Enables the driver level debug for callback
screening.
Example:
router# debug cellular 0 messages callback
Note
You can use the dialer caller callback command multiple times to configure multiple call back numbers.

Entering the command will result in modem reset automatically if you have entered the correct MEP
code. If the code is incorrect, the modem pauses and resends notification to enter MEP code.
For modular routers, you must enter the slot/subslot/port numbers for the command. For fixed routers,
you must enter slot/port numbers.
To verify if the modem MEP is locked, use the show cellular security command. The following output
is an example when the modem MEP is locked:
router#sh cellular 0 security
Card Holder Verification (CHV1) = Disabled
SIM Status = MEP locked
SIM User Operation Required = Enter MEP code
Number of Retries remaining = 255

gsm sim max-retry
To specify the maximum number of times that the fixed-platform ISR can switch over between its two
SIM cards when a SIM card loses service, use the gsm sim max-retry command in configuration mode.
gsm sim max-retry <0–65535>
Syntax Description
<0–65535>
The maximum number of times the switchover between the two SIM cards
can occur.
When the primary SIM loses service, the ISR automatically tries to switches
over to the secondary SIM.
If you do not set the maximum number of tries, the ISR tries to the
switchover for a maximum of 10 times (default).
Setting the number of retries to 0 disables automatic switchover and keeps
the service tied to one SIM (the primary SIM).
Every time a SIM switchover occurs, a counter is incremented until it
reaches the maximum number of switchover attempts. Then, service is tied
to one SIM (the primary SIM) and automatic SIM switchover is stopped.
To see the number of switchover attempts, use the show cellular 0 security
command.

Troubleshooting
This section provides the necessary background information and resources available for troubleshooting
the Cisco 3G EHWIC.
Verifying Data Call Setup
To verify the data call setup, follow these steps:
Step 1
After you create a modem data profile cellular profile create command and configuring DDR on the
cellular interface, send a ping from the router to a host across the wireless network.
Step 2
If the ping fails, debug the failure by using the following debug and show commands:
Step 3
•
debug chat
•
debug dialer
•
debug ppp negotiation
•
show cellular all
•
show controller cellular
•
show interface cellular
•
show running-config
•
show ip route
Save the output from these commands and contact your system administrator.
Checking Signal Strength
If the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) level is very low (for example, if it is less than -110
dBm) follow these steps:
Step 1
Check the antenna connection. Make sure the TNC connector is correctly threaded and tightened.
Step 2
If you are using a remote antenna, move the antenna cradle and check if the RSSI has improved.
Step 3
Contact your wireless service provider to verify if there is service availability in your area.

Modem Troubleshooting Using the Diagnostic Port
The RJ-45 port on the faceplate of the 3G EHWIC provides access to the debug port on the Sierra
Wireless modem. By connecting an industry-standard diagnostic tool like Qualcomm CAIT/QXDM or
Spirent UDM to this port, you can perform radio-level diagnostics and traffic monitoring on the modem.
Use the following test commands to enable/disable the DM port:
router# test cell-hwic 0/1/0 dm-port local {on | off | speed}
router# test cell-hwic 0/1/0 dm-port remote {on | off}
For example, to enable the DM port, use on of these commands:
router# test cell-hwic 0/1/0 dm-port local on
router# test cell-hwic 0/1/0 dm-port remote on
The cable used to connect the PC/Laptop running the diagnostic tool is the standard Cisco router console
cable (RJ-45 to DB-9).
Note
To enable test commands, you must enter the service internal command in the global configuration
mode.
