so yes , there is a P-1T, PIM coming, which is a one port smart serial PIM, so for all the PIM enabled ISR1k's you can either have the LTE PIM or the P-1T PIM, but not both. except in the 1109-4PLTE2P. this one SKU has 2 PIM's slots and can handle both PIM's.
Meena was correct in that it is geograhpically limited for the sale of the P-1T. It was designed for the LATAM/India markets with a large need of High speed serial as a WAN link requirement.

Hi Martin - So the 809 and 829 are owned by IOT, but I can answer the question because it’s the same for all cellular interfaces for Cisco. With our Cellular interfaces , each one has one radio, but support 2 SIM’s and 2 antenna ( main 0 /aux1). The reason for two antennas is that we receive on two antenna, but we transmit over the main 0 antenna. With two antenna we are able to see our overall RSSI levels get to be about 3-5 –dBi better, so each radio performs better with two antennas. The reason they support dual SIM is in the case of fail over, you can have SIMs from 2 different providers and in the event of a network failure by one mobility provider link-recovery will kick in and fail over to the other sim, which will attach to a new/different network for services. We have customers that have written EEM scripts to switch between mobility networks based on SLA’s or data usage, or whatever business reason they have to switch. The new 829 supports dual Radio, so 2 antenna for each radio. -Eric
