|M2M / IoT LTE Connectivity
The Perle IRG5140 LTE Router offers always-on M2M connectivity that is secure, reliable, cost-effective, and easy to deploy. Featuring an industrial-grade DIN-Rail housing, the Perle IRG51400 Router is a versatile and compact solution that provides 2G/3G/4G LTE connectivity with built-in GPS capabilities. The Perle IRG51400 Router is ideal for solving wireless connectivity challenges in a variety of vertical markets including video surveillance, digital signage, home security, oil and gas exploration, kiosks, smart grid, and many more.
|LTE Failover & Out of Band Management with "Four-Nines" (99.99%Up-time)
When the wired link is down, network access can be maintained with automatic failover to LTE. There are several ways to determine with the Primary WAN is down. One example, is to use the Health Monitoring function where the IRG5140 will ping a destination IP through the primary route. If there is no response, the IRG5140 router will initiate a direct connection using the back-up LTE route. The relatively low cost of LTE for business continuity means a greater return on investment and scalability for multiple locations that have limited IT resources. By deploying Perle IRG5140 LTE Routers, businesses will have on-demand network connectivity that is quick to deploy, simple to manage, and ensures maximum uptime.
|Primary Router Deployments
For pop-up stores or branch locations with limited IT resources, the IRG5140 Router is an easy to deploy solution. This single box will function as an LTE Router and a 4-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switch. IPv4 and IPv6 is supported on both the WAN and LAN sides.
|PCI Compliant LTE Failover
The credit card industry requires retailers to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standard to maintain a secure environment when processing payment card transactions. For these transactions, a Perle IRG5140 Router acts as a wireless data conduit (Gateway) for routers and POS (point-of-sale-terminals) that have been configured for PCI compliance. The USBnet is on a different subnet from the point-of-sale-terminal. All security protocols must be established from the point-of-sale terminal to the payment processor. Payment card terminals must be on a dedicated LAN or VLAN. The Perle IRG5140 Router configured on gateway mode must be connected to a router that is configured for PCI compliance.
|Communications Gateway for Railway
IRG5140 Routers are compliant with railway regulations and have the operating temperature, vibration, and emission certifications required for installation on trains, light rail, subways, and trams. 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. Central administration centers can monitor rail traffic, switching status, track conditions, weather conditions, and security data gathered by the sensors and other equipment located in wayside monitoring stations. Onboard, connecting security cameras, informational displays, and other equipment allows for a wide variety of operational tasks to be undertaken by the control staff. With the ability to establish and maintain cellular tower connectivity at up to 100 meters per second (360km/224mi per hour), the IRG5140 LTE Router is ideal for any rolling stock application.
|Failover with Static Routing
Force specified traffic to use different routing rules to direct specified traffic from the IRG5140 Router, or a connected device) to a designated primary router. If the primary route fails the specified traffic uses a backup route.
With DPD and VPN Failover configured in the IRG5140 Router, two VPN tunnels are configured but only one is active at a time. If DPD detects that the destination is not responsing through the Primary VPN, traffic is automatically switched to the Secondary/Backup VPN. The VPN Failover feature will continue to ping the desintation through the primary tunnel and, if configured to do so, will automatically revert back to the primary once it up again. Status fields can be viewed to see the current status of both VPNs.
The Perle IRG5140 Cellular Router can handle multiple non-NATed networks behind a connected router or switch.
The Perle IRG5140 Router supports up to 4000 VLANs on its Ethernet ports. VLANS are logical groupings of network devices that share the same broadcast domain. All devices on the same VLAN can ping each other without routing. There is no routing between VLANs.
Any unsolicited data coming in on a defined Pulic Port is routed to the corresponding private port and IP of a host connected on the LAN.
The IRG5140 Router accepts SMS commands for basic actions and status. The IRG5140 Cellular Router will send back an acknowledgement that the SMS command was received every time.
The IRG5140 Router can be configured to generate reports, or initiate actions, based on specified events. These events can be generated internally, or externally by devices attached to the IRG5140 digital inputs or alarm relay.
