Edge Routers with Enterprise-Grade Routing Capabilities

Perle does not charge any annual subscription or license fees to maintain operation, download software updates, or access features. IRG5410 routers have all the of the advance routing functionality found in the most advanced enterprise routers. Extensive protocol routing support means they can be easily deployed in hierarchical or large mesh network structures. A fast CPU and lots of memory ensure the router can handle a consistent and heavy workload all day long.

  • RIP, RIPv2, RIPng, OSPFv1/2/3, BGP-4, VRRP
  • When BGP peering with multiple ISPs, the IRG5410 delivers carrier-grade routing performance that is capable of handling the full internet routing table

  • IP Passthrough for deployments requiring the router to operate in Gateway or Bridge mode
  • Route between any interface (LTE, Ethernet, USB, or serial RS232)
  • Reduce unwanted network traffic by creating collision and/or broadcast domains

Integrated Zone-Based Policy Firewall

The IRG5410 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.

LTE 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 LTE. There are several ways to determine with the Primary WAN is down. One example, is to use the Health Monitoring function where the IRG5140 will ping a destination IP through the primary route. If there is no response, the IRG5140 router will initiate a direct connection using the back-up LTE route. The relatively low cost of LTE for business continuity means a greater return on investment and scalability for multiple locations that have limited IT resources. By deploying Perle IRG5140 LTE Routers, businesses will have on-demand network connectivity that is quick to deploy, simple to manage, and ensures maximum uptime.

LTE Failover Diagram

Primary Router Deployments
For pop-up stores or branch locations with limited IT resources, the IRG5140 Router is an easy to deploy solution. This single box will function as an LTE Router and a 4-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switch. IPv4 and IPv6 is supported on both the WAN and LAN sides.

LTE Primary Router Diagram

PCI Compliant LTE 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 IRG5140 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 IRG5140 Router configured on gateway mode must be connected to a router that is configured for PCI compliance.

IRG5140 Routers are compliant with railway regulations and have the operating temperature, vibration, and emission certifications required for installation on trains, light rail, subways, and trams. They are perfectly suited for installation directly in the train or subway cabin, the dusty and humid environments of metro tunnels or, the enclosures found alongside rail tracks. Central administration centers can monitor rail traffic, switching status, track conditions, weather conditions, and security data gathered by the sensors and other equipment located in wayside monitoring stations. Onboard, connecting security cameras, informational displays, and other equipment allows for a wide variety of operational tasks to be undertaken by the control staff. With the ability to establish and maintain cellular tower connectivity at up to 100 meters per second (360km/224mi per hour), the IRG5140 LTE Router is ideal for any rolling stock application.

Roadway Smart Work Zones (SWZ)
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Smart Work Zones (SWZ) are used to monitor and improve roadway construction zones. An LTE 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 IRG5140 Router, or a connected device) to a designated primary router. If the primary route fails the specified traffic uses a backup route.

VPN Failover
With DPD and VPN Failover configured in the IRG5140 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.
