C881 vs. Cisco 881

Some Cisco 880 Series buyers may be confused with the hot models of Cisco 881 and C881. Cisco 881 or C881, the same?

C881-K9 is the replacement of Cisco 881-SEC-K9 (end-of-life and end-of-sale).

Part numbers beginning with Cisco881 have been end-of-life. And Part numbers beginning with C881 are still available now.

  • C881 doesn’t have no option (Wi-Fi, embedded 3g)
  • Cisco 881 have as option Wi-Fi and embedded 3g
Models WAN Interface LAN Interfaces 802.11g/n Option Embedded 3G Integrated ISDN Dial Backup
C881 10/100-Mbps Fast Ethernet 4-port 10/100-Mbps managed switch No No No
Cisco 881 10-/100-Mbps Fast Ethernet 4-port 10-/100-Mbps managed switch Yes (Cisco 881W) Yes (Cisco 881G) No
C881 Router: Power Differences
  • There’s a power switch on C881-K9!
  • There’s no longer a dedicated PoE brick.
  • There’s still a required internal PoE module, and it’s got a different part number.

Twin screw holes on the new C881

Make the ACS-890-RM-19= work on the C881.

  • The USB port has been moved from one side to the other.
  • The “fake” screw hole on the side is now a threaded hole, which means that the C881 will accept the 891’s rack mount hardware.
  • The Fa4 port has moved a bit.
  • The C881 is lead free, which seems to be what prompted all of these gyrations.
C881 vs. Cisco 881: Licensing Differences
  • C881 ships with 1GB RAM, but half of it is crippled by a license.
  • C881 running c800-universal software image doesn’t enforce the advanced IP services license, while a CISCO881 running c880-universal software image does enforce that license.
  • The C881 comes with twice as much flash (256MB rather than 128MB) as the CISCO881 – It’s a good thing because the c800-universal software image is approximately twice the size (80MB) of the c880-universal image.
  • The old 881 won’t let you configure BGP, multicast, VRFs without the advipservices license, but the new 881 (or the c800-universal software build) is currently running those features in the lab without any problem.
