Cradlepoint IBR1700 FIPS Mobile LTE Rugged Router with Cat 11/18 Gigabit-Class Modem

The Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) is an information technology security accreditation program for validating that the cryptographic modules produced by private sector companies meet well-defined security standards. Cradlepoint’s FIPS 140-2 Inside certifications allows continued support of its commitment to deliver highly-secure, cloud-managed networking solutions for mission-critical applications and environments that require the strictest of protections.

The IBR1700 FIPS from Cradlepoint is a rugged Category 18 (Cat 18) Gigabit-Class LTE router that securely connects critical vehicle and mobile applications. FirstNet, first responders, public transit, truck fleets, and nearshore shipping vessels count on the IBR1700’s high-performance and reliability to meet demanding communication requirements. Mobile networks require vigorous security measures to protect on-board public WiFi and remote cloud data transfers. The IBR1700 FIPS reduces threats by offering cutting-edge multi-zone firewalls, IDS/IPS, Internet security protocols, and FIPS-140-2 certification. Please see the IBR1700 model if FIPS certification is not required.

The IBR1700 FIPS comes equipped with a Cat 18 (1200 Mbps) Gigabit-Class Advanced Pro modem and a secondary modem slot. A backup modem, MC400, with a second wireless carrier may be added for continuous connectivity. The device also includes advanced WiFi (simultaneous tri-band, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wave 2, MU-MIMO), five Gigabit LAN and WAN interfaces, and active GPS with precision dead-reckoning and location. Performance is nothing if a router cannot stand up to a mobile environment. Built for the demands of vehicle operations, the IBR1700 FIPS withstands extreme temperature, dust, moisture, shock, and vibration. It supports OBD-II to report vehicle health and diagnostics. It meets MIL-STD-810, IP64, and other safety and regulatory certifications.

Contact Us About Data Plans

Enable your IBR1700 FIPS with a cost-effective data plan to ensure your router is ready to deploy. To enable cellular connectivity, at least one activated 4FF-sized SIM card with an active cellular data plan is needed. Call Westward Sales for information.

High-Performance Antenna Options

See the Accessories tab or the IBR1700 antenna page for a list of Cradlepoint approved, high-performance antennas. Manufactured by top-tier companies like Parsec, Panorama, Mobile Mark, and Taoglas, these omnidirectional antennas are compatible with the IBR1700 FIPS router. Most include low-loss extension cables and mounting brackets so you can locate the antenna where you need it for the best signal strength. These antennas or built for demanding environments and are ideal for vehicles, machines, industrial operations, and outdoor locations.
