ICR-3211B is an industrial cellular gateway intended for the North American market (NAM). The ICR-3211B router is designed for wireless communication in the mobile networks that make use of traditional cellular technologies. The primary purpose of this router is its use in the Category M1 (Cat M1) services on the cellular LTE network.
LTE Cat M1 is a new cellular technology specifically designed for the needs of applications targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) or machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. LTE Cat M1 is a low-power wide-area (LPWA) air interface that lets you connect IoT and M2M devices with medium data rate requirements (375 kbps upload and download speeds in half duplex mode).
In addition to its two independent or switched Ethernet ports, serial ports RS232 and RS485, ICR-3211B has built-in digital I/O connectivity, backup real-time clock and sleep mode support. The device has two SIM readers protected by metallic cover for carrier failover redundancy. As an addition the router is ready to use internal eSIM. The Last-gasp supercapacitor ensures safe sending out of information about power failure or send last processed data.
The router supports VPN tunnel creation using various protocols to ensure safe communications. The router provides diagnostic functions which include automatic monitoring of the wireless and wired connections, automatic restart in case of connection losses, and a hardware watchdog that monitors the router status.
The ICR-3211B places intelligence at the network edge with an extremely powerful Cortex A8 CPU at 1GHz, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB EMMC FLASH memory in pSLC mode for a long-lifetime and critical industrial applications. 1.3 GB of memory space is allocated for customer SW applications and data. With open Linux platform and wide posibilities of programming customer SW applications in Python, C/C++ or browser-based flow editor Node-RED the ICR-3211B offers a real open development platform for Industrial IoT applications. The Advantech existing app library (User modules) with apps already developed to enhance specific router functionality including industrial protocol conversions and support of IoT platforms such as MS Azure, Cumulocity, ThingWorx and others are supported on the router.
ICR-3211B is easy to install using WebAccess/DMP, a full featured configuration and monitoring tool for mass deployment. The router also supports additional traffic and health monitoring software R-SeeNet.
