Features and capabilities

Extend product lifetime with modular design

Internal and expansion modules give you the flexibility to add or upgrade WAN and storage components as technologies and needs evolve.

Software-defined WAN

Cisco SD-WAN architecture delivers scale, simplicity, and unified management for extending enterprise networks to a distributed IoT deployment.

Ruggedized, compact with low power consumption

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

Open extensible platform with IOS-XE at the edge

Cisco IOS XE is highly programmable with 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.

A 5G-ready, dual WAN gigabit router

The two cellular modules enable concurrent connectivity to two cellular networks for WAN redundancy, enhanced data throughputs, load balancing, and differentiated services. The hardware is future-proofed for 5G.

Scale with choice of management

Scale and simplify operations. Equip IT and operations teams with powerful management tools such as IoT Operations Dashboard, Field Network Director, Cisco DNA Center, and Cisco vManage.

Connected roadways and intersections

Connected roadways and intersections help improve safety, increase operational efficiency, reduce traffic congestion, and minimize carbon footprint. Discover how Cisco IoT can connect your roadways infrastructure.

Secure, reliable connectivity for first responders and critical public infrastructure.

Cisco's FirstNet certified industrial routers are bringing greater situational awareness to public safety and improving the speed and efficiency of emergency response. Read blog >
