The Cisco 2600 series is an award-winning family of modular multiservice access routers, providing flexible LAN and WAN configurations, multiple security options, voice/data integration, and a range of high performance processors. The wide range of features, interfaces, and flexibility of adding over 50 modules makes the Cisco 2600 family the ideal branch-office router for today's and tomorrow's customer requirements.
The new Cisco 2600XM models are based on the current Cisco 2600 platform architecture, and extend the performance by as much as 33%. The new models also increase default platform memory and provide increases in memory capacity at the same price points when compared to the current Cisco 2600 models. The new XM functionality provides the same proven technology of the current Cisco 2600 Series platforms, including Cisco IOS software mainline feature support and the modularity of Network Modules (NMs), WAN Interface Cards (WICs) and Advanced Integration Modules (AIMs). Enterprises considering the Cisco 2600 for branch office applications should now regard the Cisco 2600XM as the preferential platform for delivering high performing, flexible solutions to branch and remote offices.
