In a nutshell, I have about 20 x Cisco 881's and I want to purchase the 3G card for them. And I need an additional 20 routers on top of this w/ those 3G cards built in.
The specific model I have that need the 3G card is CISCO881WGNAK9
The model w/ the 3G card included is CISCO881GWGNAK9
[notice the extra G between 881 and WGNA]
So in I did some research and found this 3G card itself; it's actually made by Sierra Wireless, not Cisco.
It is the AirCard 597E, model# PCEX-3G-CDMA-V
NOTE: the V at the end indicates Verizon. The other model is for Sprint, ending in an S.
*drum rolls* This card is discontinued. I can't get it from my dealer, but I do see it being sold on various websites. It seems to go for around $150 plus or minus.
Which brings me to the SECOND PROBLEM:
The CISCO881WGNAK9 [w/o 3G] goes for ~ $600
The CISCO881GWGNAK9 [w/ 3G] goes for ~ $1100
$500 for one 3G card? That is just not realistic for this project.
Is this really my only option? Does Cisco have/recommend a USB 3G card that can be used instead?
I -like- this product. I want to use this product. I -don't- want to use dial-backup; I'd -much- rather use 3G. These 20 routers that are already in place have the PC-Card slot [as well as a USB slot]. Is there anything that can be done to get 3G on these guys? USB or otherwise?
