The ICG-2515FW-NR is an integrated 5G NR and Wi-Fi 6 solution for industrial automation, digital factory and other industrial applications.
Automatic Failover between 5G NR and Dual WAN
Designed with 5G NR, and dual WAN interfaces (fiber and copper), 1000X SFP and Gigabyte Ethernet, the ICG-2515FW-NR ensures Internet connectivity by featuring failover functionality between 5G NR and dual WAN. The ICG-2515FW-NR provides flexibility to set priority for 5G NR or dual WAN connection. When the main WAN interface fails, the secondary WAN interface will automatically back up the connection to ensure always-on connectivity.
Ultra-Fast Speed 4G/5G Network*
The ICG-2515FW-NR supports 5G NR DL (downlink) speeds higher than 2.4 Gbps and 4G LTE DL speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The wide spectrum bandwidth accelerates internet speeds and reduces network latency for premium and time-sensitive connectivity services. The ICG-2515FW-NR also supports multi-band connectivity including LTE FDD/TDD, WCDMA and GSM for a wide range of applications.
*The real 5G NR/4G LTE data rate is dependent on local service provider.
Dual SIM Design
To enhance reliability, the ICG-2515FW-NR is equipped with dual SIM slots that support failover and roaming over to ensure uninterrupted connectivity for mission-critical cellular communications. It provides a more flexible and easier way for users to create an instant network sharing service via 5G-NR in public places like transportations, outdoor events, etc.
The ICG-2515FW-NR is equipped with global positioning system feature and 5G-NR technology to for multiple global navigation systems (GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo/QZSS). It helps to position location of cellular gateway based on a network of satellites that continuously transmits necessary data. More signals transmitted from more satellites can triangulate its location on the ground, meaning any location can be easily tracked.
Ideal High-Availability VPN Security Router Solution for Industrial Environment
The ICG-2515FW-NR provides complete data security and privacy for accessing and exchanging the most sensitive data, built-in IPSec VPN function with DES/3DES/AES encryption and MD5/SHA-1/SHA-256/SHA-384/SHA-512 authentication, and GRE, SSL, PPTP and L2TP server mechanism. The full VPN capability in the ICG-2515FW-NR makes the connection secure, more flexible, and more capable.
Wireless 11ax Brings Excellent Data Link Speed
The ICG-2515FW-NR is designed with high power amplifier and 2 highly-sensitive antennas which provide stronger signal and excellent coverage even in the wide-ranging or bad environment. With adjustable transmit power option, the administrator can flexibly reduce or increase the output power for various environments, thus reducing interference to achieve maximum performance. Equipped with the next-generation Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless network standard, the total bandwidth reaches 1800Mbps, and the 2-stream transmission technology improves the transmission efficiency of multiple devices, making AR/VR/IoT applications smoother. The IEEE 802.11ax also optimizes MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) mechanism to serve multiple devices simultaneously.
Wi-Fi Deployments and Authentication with Simplified Management
The ICG-2515FW-NR also provides a built-in AP Controller, Captive Portal, RADIUS and a DHCP server to facilitate small and medium businesses to deploy secure employee and guest access services without any additional server. The ICG-2515FW-NR can offer a secure Wi-Fi network with easy installation for your business.
Centralized Remote Control of Managed APs
The ICG-2515FW-NR provides centralized management of PLANET Smart AP series via a user-friendly Web GUI. It’s easy to configure AP for the wireless SSID, radio band and security settings. With a four-step configuration process, wireless profiles for different purposes can be simultaneously delivered to multiple APs or AP groups to minimize deployment time, effort and cost.
For example, to configure multiple Smart APs of the same model, the ICG-2515FW-NR allows clustering them to a managed group for unified management. According to requirements, wireless APs can be flexibly expanded or removed from a wireless AP group at any time. The AP cluster benefits bulk provision and bulk firmware upgrade through single entry point instead of having to configure settings in each of them separately.
Excellent Ability in Threat Defense
The ICG-2515FW-NR has built-in SPI (stateful packet inspection) firewall and DoS/DDoS attack mitigation functions to provide high efficiency and extensive protection for your network. Thus, virtual server and DMZ functions can let you set up servers in the Intranet and still provide services to the Internet users.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity feature included to protect the switch management in a mission-critical network virtually needs no effort and cost to install. For efficient management, the ICG-2515FW-NR is equipped with HTTPS web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the ICG-2515FW-NR offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The ICG-2515FW-NR supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP protocol.
Maximizing Work Efficiency with PLANET SD-WAN Gateway
PLANET ICG-2515FW-NR incorporated in SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) function can greatly increase WAN optimization for multiple WAN links to be managed. With SD-WAN, users can connect any application across all available network connections at every site. It improves application performance and provides a high-quality user experience for increasing business productivity and reducing IT costs.
