LTE Router for Primary or Failover Connectivity

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.

FEATURES

Cellular Band Operation Certified Worldwide over 4G LTE, DC-HSPA+, HSPA+, HSPA, and UMTS (WCDMA)

The Perle IRG5140+ Router is LTE-A PRO CAT12 with 600Mbps downlink and 150Mbps uplink speeds. 24x LTE Bands and 9x UMTS/WCDMA Bands are support for extensive carrier compatibility.

An Edge Router with Enterprise-Grade Routing Capabilities

The IRG5140+ router has all the of the advance routing functionality found in the most advanced enterprise routers. Extensive protocol routing support means it 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 IRG5140 delivers carrier-grade routing performance that is capable of handling the full internet routing table
  • IPv4 & IPv6
  • OpenVPN & IPSec VPN
  • DHCP & DHCPv6
  • IP Passthrough for deployments requiring the router to operate in Gateway or Bridge mode
  • Route between any interface (LTE, Ethernet, or USB)
  • Reduce unwanted network traffic by creating collision and/or broadcast domains

Integrated Zone-Based Policy Firewall

The IRG5140 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, the IRG5140+ LTE Router enables 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 the IRG5140+ Router. 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.

Cutting-edge design certified for a wide range of deployment scenarios

High-performance components and features enable customers to take advantage of broadband network speeds while running secure concurrent data, voice, and video services. The IRG5140+ router has high MTBF rates because it is developed with certified high-end components to provide superior reliability and uninterrupted operation.
