Integrated Zone-Based Policy Firewall
The IRG7000 built-in firewall offers intuitive policies for multiple-interface routers to protect inside networks from unauthorized access by users on an outside network. The firewall also protects inside networks from each other, for example, by keeping a human resources network separate from a user network. If there are network resources that need to be available to an outside user, such as a web or FTP server, these resources can be placed on a separate network behind the firewall, in a demilitarized zone (DMZ). The firewall will allow limited access to the DMZ, but because the DMZ only includes the public servers, any attacks there will not affect the inside network. The firewall controls when inside users access outside networks (for example, access to the Internet), by allowing only certain addresses out, by requiring authentication or authorization, or by coordinating with an external URL filtering server. A deny-all (blacklist) policy can be used to prohibit traffic between firewall security zones until an explicit policy is applied to allow desirable traffic. Router ports are assigned to zones and firewall inspection policies are applied to traffic moving between the zones. Firewall inter-zone policies come with considerable flexibility and granularity so that different firewall inspection policies can be applied to the same router port.

|Cellular Failover & Out of Band Management with “Four-Nines” (99.99%Up-time)
When the wired link is down, network access can be maintained with automatic failover to 5G. There are several ways to determine when the Primary WAN is down. One example, is to use the Health Monitoring function where IRG7000 will ping a destination IP through the primary route. If there is no response, the IR7000 router will initiate a direct connection using the back-up 5G route. The relatively low cost of 5G for business continuity means a greater return on investment and scalability for multiple locations that have limited IT resources. By deploying Perle IRG7000 5G Routers, businesses will have on-demand network connectivity that is quick to deploy, simple to manage, and ensures maximum uptime.
|Primary Router Deployments
For pop-up stores, or branch locations with limited IT resources, the IRG7000 Routers are an easy to deploy solution. This single box will function as a 5G Router and four-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switch.IPv4 and IPv6 is supported on both the WAN and LAN sides.
|PCI Compliant Cellular Failover
The credit card industry requires retailers to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standard to maintain a secure environment when processing payment card transactions. For these transactions, a Perle IRG7000 Router acts as a wireless data conduit (Gateway) for routers and POS (point-of-sale-terminals) that have been configured for PCI compliance. The USBnet is on a different subnet from the point-of-sale-terminal. All security protocols must be established from the point-of-sale terminal to the payment processor. Payment card terminals must be on a dedicated LAN or VLAN. The Perle IRG7000 Router configured on gateway mode must be connected to a router that is configured for PCI compliance.
With GPS and GNSS (Galileo, Glonass, and Beidou) included by default, an IRG7000 5G Router serves as the main connectivity hub in creating a VAN. This enables real-time location tracking of remote assets. In addition, real-time network clock updates for the router, or any attached equipment, ensures accurate time-stamp usage in time-sensitive applications. In-vehicle telemetry, sensors, surveillance cameras, ticketing, and other devices are connected to transmit data to the cloud or headquarters over 5G. With the ability to establish and maintain cellular tower connectivity at up to 100 meters per second (360km/224mi per hour), the IRG7000 provides reliable 5G access in any moving vehicle application. Ignition Power Management can be used to schedule a delayed shutdown or start-up of the IRG7000 based on the vehicle ignition status to ensure all data is safely transmitted.
|Roadway Smart Work Zones (SWZ)
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Smart Work Zones (SWZ) are used to monitor and improve roadway construction zones. A 5G Router enables the communication between the components of the system. Real-time information can be transmitted to Portable Changeable Message Signs (PCMS) to display traffic conditions, travel times, incident information, and advisory messages. Data can be collected from cameras and sensors near the work zone and sent to the central processing system.
|Failover with Static Routing
Force specified traffic to use different routing rules to direct specified traffic from the IRG7000 Router, or a connected device, to a designated primary router. If the primary route fails the specified traffic uses a backup route.
With DPD and VPN Failover configured in the IRG7000 Router, two VPN tunnels are configured but only one is active at a time. If DPD detects that the destination is not responsing through the Primary VPN, traffic is automatically switched to the Secondary/Backup VPN. The VPN Failover feature will continue to ping the desintation through the primary tunnel and, if configured to do so, will automatically revert back to the primary once it up again. Status fields can be viewed to see the current status of both VPNs.
The Perle IRG7000 Cellular Router can handle multiple non-NATed networks behind a connected router or switch.
The Perle IRG7000 Router supports up to 4000 VLANs on its Ethernet ports. VLANS are logical groupings of network devices that share the same broadcast domain. All devices on the same VLAN can ping each other without routing. There is no routing between VLANs.
Any unsolicited data coming in on a defined Pulic Port is routed to the corresponding private port and IP of a host connected on the LAN.
The IRG7000 Router accepts SMS commands for basic actions and status. The IRG7000 Cellular Router will send back an acknowledgement that the SMS command was received every time.
The IRG7000 Router can be configured to generate reports, or initiate actions, based on specified events. These events can be generated internally, or externally by devices attached to the IRG7000 Serial RS232, RS485, or digital inputs.
The Serial Port on the IRG7000 Router can be used to establish Serial to IP communications. Connect PLCs, RTUs, Card Readers, or any device with a serial COM port and transmit data over 5G.
|PPP / SLIP / DUN Support
The Perle IRG7000 supports Point-to-Point (PPP) to establish a connection to a host PC serial port. The IRG7000 supports Windows Dial-up Networking when PPP is enabled to establish a connection to a host PC serial port.
