Edge Routers with Enterprise-Grade Routing Capabilities
IRG5500 routers have all the of the advance routing functionality found in the most advanced enterprise routers. Extensive protocol routing support means they can be easily deployed in hierarchical or large mesh network structures. A fast CPU and lots of memory ensure the router can handle a consistent and heavy workload all day long.
- RIP, RIPv2, RIPng, OSPFv1/2/3, BGP-4
- When BGP peering with multiple ISPs, the IRG5500 delivers carrier-grade routing performance capable of handling the full Internet routing table
- IPv4 & IPv6

- DHCP & DHCPv6
- IP Passthrough for deployments requiring the router to operate in Gateway or Bridge mode
- Route between any interface (LTE, WLAN, Ethernet, USB, or serial RS232)
- Reduce unwanted network traffic by creating collision and/or broadcast domains
Integrated Zone-Based Policy Firewall
The IRG5500 built-in firewall offers intuitive policies for multiple-interface routers to protect inside networks from unauthorized access by users on an outside network. The firewall also protects inside networks from each other, for example, by keeping a human resources network separate from a user network. If there are network resources that need to be available to an outside user, such as a web or FTP server, these resources can be placed on a separate network behind the firewall, in a demilitarized zone (DMZ). The firewall will allow limited access to the DMZ, but because the DMZ only includes the public servers, any attacks there will not affect the inside network. The firewall controls when inside users access outside networks (for example, access to the Internet), by allowing only certain addresses out, by requiring authentication or authorization, or by coordinating with an external URL filtering server. A deny-all (blacklist) policy can be used to prohibit traffic between firewall security zones until an explicit policy is applied to allow desirable traffic. Router ports are assigned to zones and firewall inspection policies are applied to traffic moving between the zones. Firewall inter-zone policies come with considerable flexibility and granularity so that different firewall inspection policies can be applied to the same router port.
Enhanced Security with 2 Factor Authentication
With multiple concurrent VPN sessions and 2 Factor Authentication, Perle IRG5500 Routers enable secure communications to multiple back-end systems.
- Remote authentication (RADIUS, TACACS+) management, integrates with enterprise-grade systems to control access to devices in the field.
- Software image CRC control protects the software upgrade process against unwanted software corruption and malware
- High-speed OpenVPN, IP Security (IPsec), Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption for data privacy over the Internet.
- Intrusion prevention enforces security policies in a large enterprise or service provider networks.
GPS / Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Included
GPS and GNSS (Galileo, Glonass, and Beidou) are included by default in all IRG5500 Routers and Gateways. This enables real-time location tracking of remote assets. Also, you can get real-time network clock updates in the router, or any attached equipment, for accurate time-stamp usage in time-sensitive applications.

High-performance components and features enable customers to take advantage of broadband network speeds while running secure concurrent data, voice, and video services. All IRG5500 routers have high MTBF rates because they are developed with certified high-end components to provide superior reliability and uninterrupted operation.
|Primary or failover back-up connectivity||Perle is the only company to offer LTE edge routers with all of the enterprise-grade features and protocols needed to be a fully functional primary or failover back-up LTE Router. If the main network connection goes down for any reason, Perle IRG5500 routers provide an always-on, cost-effective redundant connection. As a failover solution, wireless speeds are fast enough to keep your network humming and distributed enterprises can enjoy the same reliability and competitive advantage as large enterprises. The relatively low cost of LTE for branch continuity means a greater return on investment and scalability for multiple locations. Simply put, an IRG5500 LTE Router ensures maximum uptime, cost-effective scalability, and ease of deployment and management with limited IT resources.|
|Compact light-weight design||Deploy in many different environments where space, heat dissipation, and low power consumption are critical factors. The optional DIN-Rail mounting brackets or wall-mount brackets ensure easy installation.
|Ultra-Low-Power||IRG5500 LTE Routers are designed to operate on limited power sources by consuming less than 1 Watt in idle mode. This makes them ideal for battery and solar applications. In addition, Standby Mode can be used to protect power sources by dropping power consumption to a target of 53 mW. This can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection, or I/O. IRG5500 Routers also work with the existing power infrastructure in 2G/3G deployments that are migrating to LTE thus, eliminating the need to invest in replacement equipment.|

|FirstNet Ready™ Deployments||Built for first responders and field personnel, the IRG5500+ FN LTE Routers are certified Band 14 and FirstNet Ready™. With long range Gigabit Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet, and up to 600 Mbps downlink and 150 Mbps speeds over LTE-Advanced Pro, fleets can be united with the enterprise network to enables multiple field applications to work simultaneously, further and faster from the vehicle than ever before. Host up to 128 simultaneous Wi-Fi clients, and concurrently connect multiple mission critical applications in and around the vehicle including laptops, DVRs and tablets. Additionally, live video streaming, and rapid and secure access to remote databases, such as record management systems makes the IRG5500+ FN ideal.|
Perle IRG5500 Routers and Gateways are fully approved and certified for Railway rolling stock application deployments. They are perfectly suited for installation directly in the train or subway cabin, the dusty and humid environments of metro tunnels or, the enclosures found alongside rail tracks.
Dual-SIM LTE Failover for true Business Continuity
Perle IRG5500 Routers and Gateways come with redundant SIM slots to ensure reliable network connectivity and cellular multihoming support in LTE and HSPA-based networks. This is particularly useful:
- When the primary carrier contract data cap has been exceeded, the IRG5500 will automatically switch over to a back-up data plan.
- When the IRG5500 is deployed in a mobile environment long-distance roaming can be enabled and used.
- When there is a lack of coverage, or carrier network failure, the IRG5500 will automatically switch over to a back-up carrier.
Dual-band WiFi Models available with Integrated WLAN Access Point
Integrated Wi-Fi (up to 866Mbps) for LAN connectivity allows up to 128 simultaneous clients to work concurrently. Integrates 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Access Point for mission-critical applications. The 2X2 MIMO Access Point creates a self-healing, self-optimizing wireless network.
