Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS Rugged Mobile LTE Router, Cat 18 Gigabit-Class or Cat 11 Performance

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 allow 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 IBR900 FIPS 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 FIPS mitigates risk by offering multi-zone firewalls, IDS/IPS, Internet security, and FIPS 140-2 certification. Please see the IBR900 model if FIPS certification is not required.

The Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS 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 FIPS withstands extreme temperature, dust, moisture, shock, and vibration. The  IBR900 FIPS has safety and regulatory certifications, as well as an IP54 rating.

The Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS industrial router is an excellent choice for enhancing your mobile network.

Contact Us About Data Plans

Enable your IBR900 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

The Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS 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 FIPS 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.

Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS Setup

The Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS router can be set up in five quick steps. However, it is recommended that a professional install the device.

  1. Check your box for all the contents
  2. Insert SIM card into the slot
  3. Attach the antennas
  4. Mount and power up the router
  5. Activate the router through NetCloud

Set Up Location

The Cradlepoint IBR900 FIPS 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 FIPS is designed to work in elevated ambient temperatures, which may result in the device being too hot to the touch.
