The IBR900 from Cradlepoint is a rugged Gigabit-Class LTE router designed to connect diverse vehicle and mobile applications securely. FirstNet, first responders, delivery vans, taxis, trucking fleets, and nearshore shipping services count on its reliable communications and easy deployment. Mobile networks require strong security for public WiFi and remote cloud access. The Cradlepoint IBR900 mitigates risk by offering multi-zone firewalls, IDS/IPS, and Internet security. Please see the IBR900-FIPS model if FIPS certification is required.
The IBR900 comes equipped with a Category 18 (Cat 18) Gigabit-Class or Category 11 (Cat 11) LTE modem, optional second modem, Wave 2 dual-band / dual-concurrent Gigabit WiFi, LAN and WAN interfaces, and GPS. Of course, performance is nothing if a router fails under the strain of its environment. Built for the demands of mobile operations, the Cradlepoint IBR900 withstands extreme temperature, dust, moisture, shock, and vibration. The COR IBR900 has safety and regulatory certifications, as well as an IP54 rating.

The Cradlepoint IBR900 family of mobile routers is sold within a comprehensive NetCloud Mobile Essentials Plan that includes cloud management, 24x7 support, and limited lifetime warranty. Offered in a one, three, or five-year subscription, NetCloud provides secure configuration and control of your deployed routers from a remote web console. The NetCloud Advanced plan adds security functions, remote connect, out-of-band management, advanced VPN and tunneling, and location-based services.
Cloud ManagementCentrally manage IoT devices anywhere with zero-touch deployment. Get advanced networking features like analytics, QoS, and location services.
OrchestrationClick to build VPN over wireless broadband without requiring IT.
Edge ComputingBuild custom applications, then deploy networkwide from the cloud. Ensure application performance and availability while controlling LTE utilization.
Unified Edge SecurityFirewall, threat management, intrusion, and web security for Direct Internet Access (DIA).
Enable your IBR900 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.
The Cradlepoint IBR900 does NOT include antennas for the two LTE (Main and Aux), two WiFi, and GPS connections. Antennas must be purchased separately. See the Accessories tab or the IBR900 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 IBR900 router. Many include low-loss extension cables and mounting brackets so you can locate the antenna for the best signal strength. These are ideal for vehicles, machines, industrial operations, and remote locations.

If you require portable communications, consider a rugged mobile hotspot, which was designed for protecting and transporting the Cradlepoint IBR900.
The Cradlepoint IBR900 router can be set up in five quick steps. However, it is recommended that a professional install the device.
The Cradlepoint IBR900 is made to withstand the unpredictable conditions of field use such as extreme temperatures, shock, and vibration. This makes it a perfect option for mobile and IoT connectivity. For installation, make sure your chosen mounting surface ensures plenty of airflow for ventilation, is flat, and is clear of any obstructions that may interfere with the signal reception. Make sure to avoid mounting the router in direct sunlight or in a location that may expose it to extreme weather conditions. Keep the device out of reach. The Cradlepoint IBR900 is designed to work in elevated ambient temperatures, which may result in the device being too hot to the touch.
