VIC vs. WIC modules

I know I need them, but when I'm shopping for a voice router, what if one only has VIC modules, and not WIC (or vice versa)? What's the difference? Never explained to us in class.

    If only VIC's mean it will be solely a voice router only..... I thought??

    As with ISR's you get VIC slots and WIC slots hence why they are called integrated services routers.... They provide a all in one solution. :D

    VIC Cards have no functionality in WIC slots
    same goes for WIC in VIC Slots

    Although their are some VWIC's that will work in both slots but you lose voice functionality
    when putting them into standard WIC slots, example being the VWIC-2MFT-T1

    Ya know this reminds me of those old high school tests.

    If some VIC's are WIC's and Some WIC's are VIC's then isnt all VIC's WIC's?
    There is no place like 127.0.0.1

    Sounds like something out of a Dr. Seuss book :)
