COR IBR1100 Series SKUs


IMPORTANT: Product package does not include a power adapter or antennas. Because of the diverse needs of customers, the COR IBR1100 Series does not include modem antennas, WiFi antennas, or a wall power adapter in the box.

For demo purposes, Cradlepoint recommends purchasing an Accessory Demo Kit.


  • COR IBR1100LP6-NA (WiFi) – LTE Advanced (Cat 6) modem for all North American carriers




The COR IBR1100 Dual-Modem Dock provides flexibility in deployment with additional bandwidth or failover capability across multiple carriers. A second modem can also be used to augment bandwidth for applications like passenger WiFi, video or cloud access to ensure an ideal quality of experience. Engineered for commercial vehicles and first responders, the modular design provides the ability to future proof as your network grows or new services like FirstNet/Band 14 for public safety are developed.

COR IBR1100 with Dock


The COR IBR1100 Series comes with a 2m locking direct wire power/GPIO cable intended for vehicle installation. If you want to plug into a wall power outlet, you'll need to purchase a separate wall power adapter: choose between the extended temperature range (−30 °C to 70 °C) and standard (0 °C to 40 °C) options.

Most vehicle installations will use the included direct wire power/GPIO cable, which can be used to enable the ignition sensing feature, but there is also a car adapter option for plugging into a vehicle cigarette lighter receptacle.


The product package for the COR IBR1100 Series does not include antennas. Both the COR IBR1100 and COR IBR1150 have two connectors for 3G/4G modem antennas and one connector for an active GPS antenna. The WiFi version (IBR1100) also includes two connectors for 2.4/5 GHz dual-band dual-concurrent WiFi antennas.
