Cisco 1100 Series Industrial Integrated Services Routers

Optimize your IoT deployments

The modularity and expansion capabilities of the IR1101 Integrated Services Router Rugged can help extend product lifetime. Its compact, modular, ruggedized design is excellent for mission-critical cases. It offers stronger industrial router security and simplified management with SD-WAN architecture, edge compute, and IOS XE.

Features and capabilities

Modularity and investment protection

The IR1101 has highly modular and expandable hardware designed to extend product lifetime. Internal and expansion modules give you the flexibility to add or upgrade WAN and storage components as technologies and your needs evolve.

A 5G-ready, dual WAN gigabit router

When provisioned with two cellular modules, the IR1101 enables concurrent connectivity to two cellular networks for WAN redundancy, enhanced data throughputs, load balancing, and differentiated services. The hardware is future-proofed to handle 5G.

Ruggedized and compact, with low power consumption.

With its small form-factor (less than 2RU) and low typical power consumption of 10 W, the IR1101 is easy to install and integrate into space- and power-constrained cabinet installations.

Software-defined WAN on the IR1101

Now you can leverage IT expertise to a broad, distributed network, operate at scale, and lower total cost of ownership. Cisco SD-WAN architecture delivers scale, simplicity, and unified management for extending enterprise networks to a distributed IoT deployment.

Open extensible platform with IOS-XE at the edge

Cisco IOS XE is highly programmable, with open and standards-based APIs, and next-generation, multilayer security built in. This unified software stack is ideal for process and workflow automation, enabling you to qualify and deploy new services more quickly.

Visibility and control from enterprise to the edge with Cisco IR1101 with Industrial SD-WAN

Reduce workloads for faster rollouts, ensure critical infrastructure is uninterrupted and automate security setup from enterprise to edge.

Extend intent-based networking to the IoT edge

Cisco’s highly scalable, flexible, secure, and easy-to-deploy industrial IoT platforms help improve uptime, lower operating costs, and future-proof your investments.

Use cases

Self-healing utility grids to reduce outages

Remotely manage thousands of miles of unmanned power grids between distribution substations and the control center. Improve power flow, Volt-VAR optimization, and fault detection and isolation for reduced outage durations and cost.

Improve public safety and regulate traffic

The IR1101 provides redundant WAN connectivity for increased reliability. And with intelligence at the edge, you can accelerate decision making for mission-critical applications, such as public safety, regulating traffic flow, and detecting traffic violations.

Safeguard oil and gas pipelines

Get real-time decisions at the edge for faster response. Utilize cellular redundancy to manage thousands of miles of remote oil and gas pipelines to quickly identify and fix problems, limit downtime, and reduce costs.

Secure financial transactions

Extend your branch network to remotely manage ATM machines. Utilize SD-WAN architecture for simple, scalable deployment. Secure financial transactions with high-end multilayer security, and redundant, high-speed connectivity. 

See what customers are saying

We at Enedis closely collaborated with Cisco to innovate and develop the compact, low-power Cisco IR1101 Integrated Services Router Rugged that meets stringent environmental and safety standards used in the utilities industry. We operate and deploy our connected grid with thousands of Cisco routers via Field Network Director zero touch provisioning, with an agile, highly secure and future proof network using IPv6 to address our scalability constraints.
