    WIC-1T uses DB25 Serial Cable (larger)
    WIC-2T uses "Smart" Serial Cable (smaller)

    If both ends are the same connector (DB25 or "Smart") then you don't need to worry about which end is DCE or DTE [when purchasing.] If you want different connectors on each end - for example, you wanted to use a WIC-2T to connect to 2 x WIC-1T - then you would need to decide which end sould be the DCE and which should be the DTE. I typically make the "ISP" end the DCE, but there's no reason you can't have it the other way around.
