The Cisco FM3500 Endo is part of the Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul portfolio. It is a high-performance radio transceiver, designed for fast, reliable backhaul of mission-critical video, voice and data.

The Cisco FM3500 Endo is used to create point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, mesh and mobility networks with a throughput of up to 500 Mbps. It is specially suitable for wayside-to-vehicle communication in industries where reliable, stable, low-latency communications are essential for safe operations and optimal productivity.

The FM3500 Endo can be exploited as a wayside radio in any vertical market that features or depends on mobility applications.

Cisco® FM 3500

Reduce the cost of network ownership by selecting the amount of throughput you need

Limit the cost of network ownership with FluidThrottle by selecting only the amount of throughput required. More throughput can be easily achieved by upgrading the system with software plug-ins when the traffic requirements increase. FluidThrottle makes Cisco FM cost-effective and future-ready.

Prodigy 2.0 for reliable mission-critical applications

Our Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based transmission protocol is built to overcome the limits of standard wireless protocols and to deliver an infrastructure with a higher level of reliability. At the base of our innovative transmission protocol is a traffic optimization algorithm that allows every Cisco FM radio to assign a specific level of priority and reliability to every packet transmitted. The result is a better, more reliable, multiservice wireless infrastructure.

Web interface configures, monitors, and troubleshoots the wireless network

The Cisco FM3500 Endo includes the FMQuadro web interface, which allows you to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the wireless network in real time, without any additional software. To simplify the configuration of the wireless network, the radio has a built-in spectrum analyzer and a real-time bandwidth monitoring tool.

Your investment is protected

Your investment is safe when business needs change. With FluidMAX, you don’t have to replace your radios when you change the network’s architecture from point-to-point to point-to-multipoint or mesh. The Cisco FM3500 Endo can operate in CSMA.

Works with FLUIDITY, our unique mobility solution

The Cisco FM3500 Endo supports FLUIDITY, the ultimate broadband connectivity solution for high-speed vehicles. Providing up to 500 Mbps of usable throughput to vehicles traveling up to 225 mph/360 kmh is now a reality.

There is no handoff time with FLUIDITY: thanks to the seamless “make before break” handoff, it maintains persistent network sessions and streams for any type of traffic.

Easy installation

The Cisco FM3500 Endo has a small form factor to minimize the impact of the installation.

To facilitate installation it has an easy NPT-1 thread for conduit. The screws, located at the bottom, are self-retaining. The visible LEDs help you understand the LAN activity and the strength of your signal. The PoE injector enables easy setup.

For outdoor installation, the radio must be mounted inside an FM-SHIELD auxiliary mounting kit to assure the long-term durability and reliability of compatible radio transceivers.
