Product Features

This section describes the major features of Cisco 700 series routers.

Dial-On-Demand Routing

Cisco 700 series routers include dial-on-demand routing (DDR). This allows the router to
dynamically initiate calls to remote devices across ISDN BRI lines as traffic demands. The
router also terminates ISDN connections based on the level of the traffic demanded on the
ISDN line and the dynamic routing parameters.

SPID and Switch Automatic Detection

The automatic service profile identifier (SPID) and switch detection feature simplifies the
use of ISDN terminal equipment and makes the equipment easier to use with fewer
parameters to enter. With this feature, the user only has to enter the local directory numbers
with area code. No SPID number or switch type is required from the user. The command
used is the set autodetection command.

The automatic detection feature only applies to ISDN switches for the USA and Canada,
usually an AT&T 5ESS Custom, DMS-100, NI-1, or NI-2 switch. The automatic detection
mechanism might not work with any other switch, such as a Siemens switch. The automatic
detection feature is only implemented in the U. S. image.

TFTP Client

Cisco 700 series routers support the use of a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) client.
This feature increases TFTP file transfer efficiency and reliability. The swl tftp command
loads the TFTP client software from the console port.
