Perle’s new 5G router

11 April 2022

Introducing the Perle IRG7440 5G router, which the manufacturer says provides fast, secure, and reliable 5G network connectivity where a user needs primary or backup 5G NR or CAT20 LTE coverage for business-critical equipment.

The IRG7440, Perele furtner claims, is ideal for IoT/M2M network access applications such as IP camera surveillance systems, digital signage, smart lockers, processing IoT data at the edge by connecting industrial equipment, remote data loggers, or sensing devices.

The IRG7440 5G router is designed to leverage the reliability and flexibility of cellular networking to minimise downtime, reduce service calls, and bring branch office and temporary locations online faster than other solutions.

“Perle’s approach has always been to design reliable hardware, using high-end components from trusted chip manufacturers, that runs a complete and robust software feature set,” says John Feeney, chief operating officer, Perle Systems. “As we add new features and enhance functionality, we have always made it available to our customers at no additional cost. This has been our business model from day one.”

Although the IRG7440 is described by Perle to be “ideal as a 5G failover and out-of-band management solution”, it can also be deployed in 3G or 4G environments while ensuring a frictionless and seamless transition to 5G as these networks become more widely available over time. If a wired link is down, the IRG7440 will maintain network access with automatic failover to a cellular network. Numerous conditions can be configured to automatically trigger a failover.
