Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers

Ruggedized, Modularized Routers

Utilities and energy providers can now deploy rugged multi-service routers on secondary sub-stations, on pole tops and in other harsh environments.  Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers as key components of the FAN (Field Area Network) solution, offer a reliable communications platform for smart metering, distribution automation and remote workforce automation.

Features and capabilities

Pervasive security

The Cisco CGR1000 provides hardened security designed at different layers. Certificate based identity check ensures the physical device is eligible for the network. The 802.1x Access control guards the entry points into your network. IPSec and FlexVPN provide transport layer enterprise level security.

Multi-service

The CGR1000 serves as a horizontal platform for various industrial services, enabling Automated Metering and Distributed Automation for the utility industry. On top of it, It also provides services for street lighting applications and substation automation using data from intelligent electronic devices (IED). By providing features such as VLAN, VRF-Lite, QoS, the CGR1000 provides true multi-services to IoT industries.

Resiliency

The CGR1000 is an IP67 rated ruggedized device. Built-in Battery enable automatic power failover. The HA design of the CGR1000 + the self-healing mesh network, complete the Resiliency of the Field Area Network architecture.

Manageability

The CGR1000 serves as a horizontal platform for various industrial services, enabling use cases such as Automated Metering, Distributed Automation for the utility industry. It also provides services for street lighting applications and substation automation. With features such as VLAN, VRF-Lite, QoS, the CGR1000 provides true multi-services to IoT industries.

Distributed intelligence

The CGR1000 provides IoX platform capability to host third party applications. It also provides a compute module for more resource intensive application. For more information, go to Cisco DevNet for IoT: https://developer.cisco.com/

Use case

Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI)

AMI enable operations such as remote meter read, remote meter connect/disconnect, power outage auto-detection, thus improving grid operation efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Distribution Automation

Distribution Automation (DA) reduces costs and improves reliability by embedding intelligence in the electric distribution grid. DA solutions enhance monitoring, control, automation, and management of the medium-voltage (MV) and low-voltage (LV) grids, from the distribution substation to the meters: Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI), System Virtualization, Workforce Automation.
