What is an Industrial Router

Industrial Router is a network device in the field of industrial Internet of Things that can transmit network signals only to the required ports. Compared with routers used in ordinary homes and offices, Industrial routers usually have higher strength hardware and software design, and support more complex network protocols and data transmission methods, which can ensure high quality and efficiency of network communication

Industrial Router is a networking device designed to meet networking requirements and cannot convert communication protocols. The difference with the gateway is that the industrial gateway can realize the conversion of standard Ethernet and industrial Ethernet protocol, wireless and wired interface or Ethernet and fieldbus communication protocol.

The Industrial Router is a cellular wireless router specifically designed for use in industrial environments. It can usually work in harsh environments, such as high temperature, low temperature, high humidity, corrosion, vibration and electromagnetic interference. At the same time, there are firewall, VPN, remote management, data encryption, traffic control, QoS and other security and stability enhancement functions. Industrial Router is widely used in industrial outdoor, enterprise commercial, mobile transportation and other industries, which can optimize the operation and management of modern industry and the Internet of Things, and improve the security and reliability of the system.

Industrial Router Choose

1. Brand:

Brand is a symbol of professionalism and quality. Unlike FMCG companies that have existed for a hundred years, the Industrial Internet of Things is a relatively young industry. It has the characteristics of technical content and life cycle. The choice of well-known and reputable Industrial 4g Router brand can ensure the quality and stability of the product.

2. Security:

Security is one of the most critical issues in iot and is closely related to data ethics, privacy and responsibility. A good network security system can greatly help enterprises reduce the risk of data theft. The important thing is that it must be built into every step of the overall network system transport design, which means that you must work to reduce data security issues before and after you buy a router. Safety is a function that Industrial 4g Router manufacturers pay more attention to. Industrial 4G Router APV/VPN security tunnel, routing firewall, watchdog timer and other functions are part of the security guarantee.

3. Stability:

Stability is the core factor of Industrial 4G Router quality, as important as the human heart. Stable transmission is usually equipped with high-precision components, such as industrial-grade 4G high-speed transmission module, 32-bit ARM CPU processor, metal shell, circuit protection, perfect protocol stack, powerful memory, wide voltage, stable rail installation, simple and reliable.

4. Scope of application:

Since it is the choice of Industrial 4G Router, it will not consider Home wireless router. The scope of application of the Industrial 4G Router should match all parameters and indicators required by your project. For example, in Canada's outdoor Industrial projects, the temperature in winter is about -4℃-40℃, so it is necessary to choose an Industrial Router with a wide temperature range to operate normally. If used in an intelligent vehicle telematics system, IOT devices with high data transfer speeds may be required.

5. Interface selection:

The communication interface of an Industrial 4G Router usually involves WLAN interface, LAN interface, 4G/Wi-Fi antenna, and even serial port (RS232, RS485). Just check what communication interfaces your project requires. For projects that do not require too many WAN ports, you can choose a smaller number of WAN routers, which is also more cost-effective.

6. Number of downstream devices:

 The number of external downstream devices connected to an Industrial 4G Router mainly depends on the actual scale of the project and the number of Internet devices. If there are no special needs, 10-20 downstream equipment can be adapted to most industrial projects. For some smart city projects, such as elevator connectivity, two downstream devices (elevator and camera) are sufficient for one router.
