Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

The Cisco® FM1000 Gateway is a rugged industrial-grade network appliance that makes the setup and management of a medium-scale Fluidity system fast and easy. It allows a Fluidity wireless infrastructure to scale to hundreds of radio devices without impacting overall system performance.

Cisco® FM1000

Scalability up to 1 Gbps

The Cisco FM1000 Gateway leverages its powerful network processor to handle a large number of packets per seconds, lowering the load on the Cisco FM radios installed in the field. It is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and is able to handle up to 1 Gbps of aggregate traffic coming from a Fluidity radio cluster.


More than one Cisco FM1000 Gateway can be installed for the same system to provide redundancy and automatic fault tolerance in the system. Multiple Cisco FM1000 Gateways can be co-located in the same data center or installed in different data centers to provide geographical redundancy.


The Cisco FM1000 Gateway helps in connecting different clusters of Fluidity networks that are separated in different broadcast domains. The Cisco FM1000 Gateway will act as the aggregation point for all tunnels and will connect all different portions of Fluidity infrastructure across Layer 3 networks or WANs. Using the Cisco FM gateway, roaming across different clusters belonging to different broadcast domains will happen with zero hand-off time thanks to Fluidity’s make-before-break patented technology.


Rugged design

The Cisco FM1000 Gateway is a rugged embedded network appliance that can be installed in the data center or in a shelter in the field. The device can be installed on DIN rail and operates with an extended temperature range.
