Cisco IoT Device Manager (IoT-DM or Device Manager) is a Windows-based application that field technicians can use to manage the Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 1000) running Cisco IOS, the Cisco 800 Series Industrial Integrated Services Routers (IR800), and the Cisco 500 Series WPAN Industrial Routers (IR500).
Cisco IoT-DM does not manage CGR 1000 routers running CG-OS.
This application was previously named Cisco Connected Grid Device Manager (CG-DM).
You must uninstall any instance of CG-DM Release 4.x or earlier, before you install IoT-DM 5.x on your laptop. The installer will not recognize the older installation given the different product name.
Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 1000) are multi-service communications platforms designed for use in field area networks (FANs). The portfolio consists of two models–Cisco CGR 1240 and Cisco CGR 1120–both ruggedized to varying degrees for outdoor and indoor deployments. Both models are modular and support a wide range of communications interfaces such as 2G/3G/4G LTE, Ethernet, and WiFi. Device Manager connects to the CGR 1000 by using a secure Ethernet or WiFi link.
The Cisco 800 Series Industrial Integrated Services Routers are compact, ruggedized, Cisco IOS Software routers. They offer support for integrated 4G LTE wireless WAN (both 809 and 829 models) and wireless LAN capabilities (829 model only). Device Manager connects to the IR809 by using a secure Ethernet link, and to the IR829 by using a secure Ethernet or WiFi link. The IR809 must have IPv6 option enabled to connect with work order.
Cisco IR500 is a distribution automation (DA) gateway that provides secure IPv4/IPv6 connectivity over the IPv6-based Cisco Resilient Mesh (formerly known as CG-Mesh) to DA devices such as capacitor bank controllers, reclosers, or other SCADA devices. Device Manager connects to the IR500 directly over the laptop COM port.
For some activities on the CGR 1000, IR800, and IR500, IoT-DM connects to the Cisco IoT Field Network Director (Cisco IoT-FND).
