Cloud-Managed Networking for M2M & IoT

3G/4G LTE Router for Reliable Connectivity Anywhere


Cradlepoint COR IBR600C

Cradlepoint COR IBR600C Series

The COR IBR600C Series is a cloud-managed, semi-ruggedized compact router designed for critical M2M and in-vehicle/mobile applications that depend on reliable connectivity.



The Cradlepoint COR IBR600C Series routers are semi-ruggedized compact routers with embedded modems that enable wired or wireless WAN connectivity using 4G LTE, 3G EVDO, or HSPA+ for M2M and in-vehicle applications. This cloud-managed routing platform supports Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine and the Extensibility Platform to meet a wide range of fixed and mobile customer connectivity needs.

Embedded cellular modems with multi-carrier software-defined radios support 4G LTE and EVDO fallback on Verizon and Sprint, and HSPA+ fallback on AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States. The IBR600 series has one wired Gigabit Ethernet for WAN and/or LAN connectivity, one 10/100 Ethernet port, and 2.4 GHz WiFi. The IBR600C Series is built to provide excellent reliable connectivity for kiosks, surveillance cameras, and digital signs, as well as Parallel Networking, in-vehicle and other industrial, retail, and M2M applications.
