The IR809 is Cisco’s smallest multimode 3G and 4G LTE wireless router, making it an excellent solution for distribution automation and remote asset management across multiple industrial vertical markets (Figure 1). The IR809 has an integrated 9.6 to 60V DC power input and is designed to withstand hostile environments, including shock, vibration, dust, and humidity, and supports a wide temperature range (–40 to 60°C and type-tested at 85°C for 16 hours). The IR809 brings together:
- Enterprise-class wireline-like services, such as quality of service (QoS)
- Cisco advanced Virtual Private Network (VPN) technologies (such as Dynamic Multipoint VPN [DMVPN] and Flexible VPN [FlexVPN])
- Multiple Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances for cellular highly secure data, voice, and video communications
- Cisco IOx, an open, extensible environment for hosting applications at the network edge
The IR809 also extends connectivity to include low-power wide-area (LPWA) access using the Cisco Interface Module for LoRaWAN.
