Staying connected to the internet is an essential part of nearly everyone’s day to day life. It is especially true for those working within an industrial setting. Industrial networks need to meet a very specific set of requirements compared to other commercial networks. For complex industrial wireless networks, such as ones utilizing machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) network applications, each piece of the network must work together to ensure uninterrupted communication for uptime for critical systems. In industrial settings, such as: factories, warehouses, and manufacturing plants, many operating systems are unmanned and must run autonomously. It is necessary for systems and protocols to be in place to detect problems and lapses in connection if and when they arise. Routers, gateways, access points, and other networking systems work together to ensure the entire enterprise stays operational.
One of the major concerns of technology designed for in the field and industrial settings is ensuring they can still run efficiently in sub-optimal conditions. Industrial-grade wireless access points and routers are designed with reliable technology ideal for harsh remote and factory conditions. In unforgiving factory settings, WiFi routers must be relied on to keep production operating efficiently. Industrial WiFi routers are built rugged and feature fanless metal casings that can withstand extreme temperatures of -25 to 70°C. Not only that, the routers are certified to heavy industrial specifications to protect the device from common technical challenges, such as: power surges, electrical noise and interference, electrostatic discharge, shock, and vibration.
Industrial routers are not just safe from the elements, but also are built to be extremely secure from outside intrusion. Our routers are designed with complete security protection to safeguard proprietary data from unauthorized users accessing your networks. These safety measures include, but are not limited to: VPN protocols, a firewall, multi-level authorization, stateful packet inspection, access control list, intrusion protection, authorization control, and more.
Industrial routers are as versatile as they are efficient. Many can be utilized in nearly any type of setting, from M2M, IoT, utilities, automation, transportation, to kiosk applications. In M2M and IoT applications, there is little to no human involvement in the transference of data, therefore it is vital that the equipment can be relied on to operate as designed without constant oversight. To help ensure networks are always operational, routers we offer come equipped with redundancy protocols. With included link detection and recovery, communication is automatically switched to a secondary link should the primary connection fail.
