R2100 Series 5G Ruggedized Router for Vehicles, IoT


Built for vehicle and IoT networks, the R2100 Series 5G Ruggedized Router is an exterior-mounted solution for vehicles that provides a high-bandwidth IoT or mobile router with the latest cellular performance in a flexible and simplified form factor.


Designed to be mounted on the rooftop of a vehicle or attached to IoT cabinet enclosures, the R2100 integrates the modem, antennas, and router into a single aerodynamic, IP67-rated casing that guards against weather, vibration, and shock.


The R2100 is sold with or without Wi-Fi 6 and can be deployed as a self-contained router or to supplement an existing router as a 5G adapter.


The router is powered by Cradlepoint NetCloud, providing an enterprise-class, unified edge security solution for in-vehicle and IoT networks. For example, NetCloud gives end-to-end encryption, threat detection, and defense functionality to enable secure cloud and internet access for applications and IoT devices, with or without Wi-Fi. The R2100 can also support the NetCloud Exchange services which provide Zero Trust Network Access and 5G Optimized SD-WAN.
