IR1101 - 5G Ready Modular Industrial Integrated Services Router with 4x Fast Ethernet ports, 1x Gigabit combo port, 1x RS-232 port, dual SIM and modular expansion.

5 Year Warranty

These products come with a standard five year manufacturer warranty.

IEC 61850-3

IEC 61850-3 communication standard for electrical substation automation systems in the Power and Energy market.

IEEE 1613

IEEE 1613 Environmental and testing requirements for communications networking devices in electric power substations.

DIN-rail mountable

These devices have been designed to be mounted directly on to an industry standard DIN-rail.

Extended Wide Temperature

These products utilise high quality industrial grade components enabling them to work in extended wide temperature environments. They are capable of running below -20C and above +70C and offer further protection than standard wide temperature rated products.

Wide Voltage

These devices and systems have been designed to accept a wide voltage DC power input. This feature is desirable in the industrial market where a fixed voltage level or mains AC power cannot be guaranteed.


These products use heatsink, heatpipe and extrusion technology to dissipate the heat generated by the system rather than using traditional fans thus improving system reliability and longevity.


4G is the fourth generation of broadband cellular network technology, succeeding 3G, and preceding 5G. A 4G system must provide capabilities defined by ITU in IMT Advanced.


The 5th iteration of Broadband cellular technology offering 10Gbps data rate, ultra-low latency, up to 10-year battery live for IoT low power devices, and low energy consumption.


CE is a mandatory standard for products on the market in the European Economic Area. By CE marking a product, the manufacturer ensures that the item meets the essential safety requirements set out in the applicable CE directive.

FCC Approved

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government that sets standards and governs the testing of conducted and radiated emissions such as EMI.


Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety certification organisation based in the United States. UL develops standards for products, materials, components, assemblies, tool and equipment, mainly dealing with product safety.

The Cisco IR1101 modular industrial integrated services cellular router offers a flexible, scalable and secure networking solution that can form part of a unified network solution or a standalone autonomous device.

Connecting up to four local ethernet devices to wireless networks the IR1101 can serve as both an access point or a client. The IR1101 is modular in two ways, firstly it's compatible with expansion modules allowing for the addition of a second cellular module, some mSATA storage and some digital I/O, secondly, the IR1101 has a modular cellular design where you can upgrade the cellular module to meet the demands of the market giving you a chance to have one solution suitable across many sites around the world with the change of the cellular module this will include when available the 5G models allowing you to add comprehensive speed increase and reduced latency to your IoT network. 

Moreover, the IR1101 has primarily been designed for hostile environments and can withstand severe environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures with an extended wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C or places where high vibrations and shocks are commonplace.
