3G/4G LTE Router for Reliable Connectivity Anywhere

3G/4G LTE Router for Reliable Connectivity Anywhere

The Cradlepoint COR IBR600C Series router is semi-ruggedized compact routers with embedded modems that enable wired or wireless WAN connectivity using 4G LTE, 3G EVDO, or HSPA+ for M2M and in-vehicle applications. This cloud-managed routing platform supports Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine and the Extensibility Platform to meet a wide range of fixed and mobile customer connectivity needs.

Embedded cellular modems with multi-carrier software-defined radios support 4G LTE and EVDO fallback on Verizon and Sprint, and HSPA+ fallback on AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States. The IBR600 series has one wired Gigabit Ethernet for WAN and/or LAN connectivity, one 10/100 Ethernet port, and 2.4 GHz WiFi. The IBR600C Series is built to provide excellent reliable connectivity for kiosks, surveillance cameras, and digital signs, as well as Parallel Networking, in-vehicle and other industrial, retail, and M2M applications.

With its compact size, built-in mounting bracket, external mobile broadband and WiFi antennas (IBR600C only), wide temperature spec, shock and vibration certifications, and sleep mode/ ignition sensing, the Cradlepoint COR IBR600C Series is ideal for use in high-availability portable or fixed applications like surveillance cameras, digital signs, Parallel Networking and in-vehicle networks when active GPS is not required.

The COR IBR600C Series supports Cradlepoint Platform Extensibility, and with NetCloud management and security services it enables secure cloud networking that leverages SoftwareDefined Networking (SDN) and network function automation and orchestration.
