Cisco industrial routers are designed to withstand harsh operating environments and to offer high-speed connectivity with the scale to handle thousands of devices. Key features include:
-Design for industrial applications, including extended environmental, shock, vibration, and surge ratings; a complete set of power input options; convection cooling; and DIN rail, 19-inch rack or wall mounting.
-Advanced security such as Dynamic Multipoint VPN, stateful firewall, and access control lists to provide multi-layered security architecture across different places in the network.
-Diverse modular interfaces (Ethernet, T1/E1, 3G and 4G LTE cellular, asynch/synch, serial, and others) to interface and backhaul for different existing infrastructures.
-Advanced quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities to support mission critical communications, such as substation communications or SCADA.
-Cisco IOx, an open, extensible environment for hosting applications at the network edge for distributed intelligence.
-Easy and user-friendly deployment, setup, operation, and management using network management tools such as IoT Field Network Director and Industrial Operations Kit.
