The Fast Ethernet routed ports on the HWICs have the same characteristics and features as the onboard LAN interfaces for
the integrated-services-router platforms. Along with Layer 3 connectivity, such as per-port access control lists (ACLs),
routing, and IP addressing, these HWICs provide functions equivalent to those of onboard Fast Ethernet routed ports.
