The Cisco IR829 Industrial Integrated Services Routers support Mobile IP delivering transparent roaming across multiple wireless networks capable of covering wide geographic areas; additionally, the IR829 supports enterprise- class built-in Wireless LAN (WLAN) capability with Autonomous and Unified mode options. The 802.11a/b/g/n 2X2 MIMO built in the IR829 creates a self-healing, self-optimizing WLAN. Moreover, with the advantage of dual radio, the integrated access point can serve as both an access point and a client to a wireless mesh network. This combined functionality provides another source for WAN diversity along with Gigabit Ethernet and cellular. The Cisco ClientLink feature of the access point improves reliability and coverage for legacy devices and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) enables radar detection and avoidance to comply with regulatory domains. The IR829 concurrently supports both 4G LTE wireless WAN and Cisco dual-radio WLAN backhaul on the same platform.

The Cisco IR829 Industrial Integrated Services Routers offer a broad range of features for industrial and enterprise IoT:

datasheet-c78-734981_10.gif

Security services, such as hardware cryptography, including Cisco’s Next Generation Encryption (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/about/security-center/next-generation-cryptography.html) that guarantees high performance for IPsec VPN traffic and firewall. Requires no additional hardware or client software. With these security services, fleet vehicle management and mass transit systems, for example, can intelligently redirect web traffic to the cloud to enforce granular security and acceptable use policies over user web traffic. With this solution, businesses can deploy the market-leading web security solution quickly and easily to protect assets from web-based threats, such as viruses, while saving bandwidth, money, and resources.

datasheet-c78-734981_11.jpg

Additional WAN options, such as Gigabit Ethernet/Fast Ethernet WAN interface with ruggedized SFP options and a 4-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet managed switch with an optional module for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) LAN connectivity enable seamless connectivity to IP based devices such as cameras, sensors and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).

datasheet-c78-734981_13.jpg

4G LTE wireless WAN (WWAN) data services. With enhanced data rates and improved latency (30 milliseconds or less), WWAN services provide an ideal way to supplement traditional wire-line services. The single LTE model of the IR829 supports peak data rates of 100 Mbps on the downlink and 50 Mbps on the uplink. The dual LTE model doubles the throughput by supporting peak data rates of 150 Mbps on the downlink and 50 Mbps on the uplink on each of the two cellular links. Actual data speed depends on the service provider network. With single and dual 4G LTE options, the IR829s offer a flexible, redundant cellular connectivity for mission critical services. The 4G LTE WWAN data services can also be used as a cost-effective alternative in areas where broadband services are either not available or very expensive.

datasheet-c78-734981_14.gif

Multiple-PDN (Packet Data Network) feature allows the router to connect to different Access Point Names (APN) enabling traffic segregation. For example, public internet traffic can be kept separate from mission critical traffic emerging from the sensors and devices connected to the router.

datasheet-c78-734981_15.jpg

4G LTE multiple-bearer QoS for cellular. The IR829 supports 4G LTE multiple bearers enabling differentiated treatment of traffic based on the QoS policies. The QoS feature depends on a service provider’s ability to classify and enforce QoS policies and hence requires providers to launch this service in their networks.

datasheet-c78-734981_16.gif

Multi-VRF. The IR829s support multi-VRF feature that allows customer to configure and maintain more than one instance of a routing and forwarding table within the same Customer Edge (CE) device. For service providers, this feature enables them to support two or more Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), where the IP addresses can overlap several VPNs.

Business benefits and application examples

IoT gives the transportation industry an opportunity to connect people, improve safety, communicate more effectively, and change transportation centers into community hubs. The IR829 offers the automotive industry - including commercial fleets, emergency-response and public safety vehicles, rail, and roadways - standards-based, scalable, and highly secure solutions.

Fleet vehicles

The IR829 can withstand severe weather and environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures, high vibrations, and shocks often encountered on buses and trains. The IR829s use standards-based Mobile IP features in Cisco IOS® Software to host networks in motion. Transitioning to different wireless networks is transparent to users and devices (such as laptops, smart devices, sensors and cameras), and applications maintain continuous connectivity without the manual intervention of users as WAN links change. In addition to allowing a single node or device to stay connected, the IR829 4G LTE routers allow an entire mobile network or subnet to stay connected. The dual-radio 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz WLAN on the IR829 can serve as both a client and an access-point. Our products also help transit operators effectively track vehicle fleets through built-in GPS systems.

Mass transit

Public-safety personnel can move critical video data and other sensitive information from incident commanders to field officers over a secure network, giving public safety agencies and their personnel access to real-time, multimedia data in the field. This access helps agencies increase cost efficiencies, provide better response time, and improve safety and security.

Asset management

Organizations can now remotely monitor and manage assets by connecting the asset with an IR829 over LTE WAN. The dual LTE capability of IR829 enables wireless WAN redundancy, improved coverage, and increased bandwidth for the asset. Integrating with Cisco’s video surveillance solution provides remote surveillance of these assets. Centralized monitoring and control of assets using the IR829 helps organizations lower their cost of operations, identify issues remotely, and take meaningful actions.
