S700 Series
Semi-Ruggedized Router

2023 - 11 - 30

The Cradlepoint S700 Series Semi-Ruggedized Router for IoT networks is a semi-ruggedized, cloud-managed LTE router, built for light industrial, IoT, and portable applications where security is a foundational requirement. Offering connectivity through LTE plus wired and Wi-Fi options, the S700 accommodates a variety of use cases in high-availability, portable, or fixed uses. The S700 Series is available with IoT NetCloud Service Plans, which provide features optimized for each unique deployment.

 

Semi-Ruggedized IoT Solution

 

When coupled with the NetCloud IoT service plan, the S700 router provides a compact, semi-ruggedized 4G LTE router solution for connecting and protecting IoT devices at scale. With an IP30-rated aluminum housing built to withstand vibration and temperature extremes and designed for DIN rail mounting, the S700 is ideal for use in light industrial applications such as oil and gas monitoring or in portable or fixed applications such as surveillance cameras, digital signs, and parallel networking. With an extensive list of features, it can be confidently deployed in the field, in buildings, or in embedded systems to deliver complete visibility, security, and control of connected devices anywhere.

 

Advanced, Cloud-Managed IoT Solution

 

For organizations requiring robust connectivity for IoT networks — with installed routers numbering from hundreds to many thousands — Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for IoT with the S700 router provides a comprehensive cloud managed network solution. When coupled with advanced IoT features, it provides troubleshooting and diagnostics with in-band and Out-of-Band Management, extensive analytics and insights, and extensibility and integrations such as Microsoft Azure IoT Central. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud-managed IoT endpoints can be rapidly deployed and easily scaled to accommodate the diverse requirements of organizations.

Notable Features

  • Define policies through centralized, cloud-based management for easy deployment at scale.
  • Gain fast, reliable connectivity with an embedded Cat 4 modem with dual SIM support.
  • Expand working radius and IoT connectivity with dual-band, concurrent Wi-Fi 6.
  • Provide a semi-ruggedized, portable solution capable of enduring harsh temperatures and vibration.
  • Utilize Configurable GPIO ports and NetCloud Integrations for IoT applications.
  • Customize and extend NetCloud Service functionality with NetCloud SDK and API.
  • Provide Active GNSS/GPS for asset tracking and mobile IoT use cases.
Key Software Capabilities

Cradlepoint NetCloud Service for the S700 Series Router includes the appropriate router software with powerful cloud management features for managing IoT at scale. The NetCloud Service includes cloud-based management for optimizing routing, secure tunneling, traffic steering, and foundational security capabilities. The cloud capabilities include defining and applying policies, at-a-glance status insights, reports, troubleshooting, and analytics dashboards. The service includes a warranty for as long as an active IoT Essentials or Essentials + Advanced subscription on the router, online training, live and online support, and all software and firmware updates.

Encrypted Routing Services

The NetCloud Service plus the S700 Series Router provides local processing power to handle demanding, router-delivered services, such as support for VPN tunneling encryption including DMVPN, IPsec, GRE, and other tunneling technologies.

Security Services

Cradlepoint zero trust security networking, delivered through NetCloud Exchange (NCX) Secure Connect, protects the Cradlepoint IoT routers and any connected devices through connect-and-go ease. IoT or other devices simply connect to the router with encrypted tunnels to build micro networks that are instantly hidden from internal and external sites. Access policies are easily defined to enable IoT devices to communicate only with their authorized resources or applications and nothing else. The simple and secure zero trust access, delivered through NCX ZTNA, also enables authorized third parties’ remote access to IoT devices on the WAN for remote monitoring and maintenance.

Extensibility and Integrations

NetCloud Service and the S700 Series Router can access network data that third-party applications need to provide higher levels of insights and control. Leverage pre-built connections to partner applications or create custom connections across a variety of use cases using the NetCloud SDK or NetCloud API.

Cloud Services

NetCloud Manager delivers true, zero-touch deployment with the ability to define and deliver policy across entire groups of endpoints. Users can create a cloud-orchestrated hub and spoke VPN network and gain insights and analytics required for rapid troubleshooting and diagnostic workflows.
