Advantech launch Ultra-High-Speed 5G Router providing a powerful edge computing gateway

supports fallback via LTE-A Pro (Cat 12) and 3G networks, for areas where 5G coverage is not yet developed

Advantech, a global leader in embedded and automation solution platforms for IoT systems integrators, announces the introduction of its ICR-4453 ultra-high-speed 5G NR (New Radio) router and powerful edge computing gateway focused on the global market. The 5G “gigabit” speed, provides low latency and guaranteed quality (SLA) of connectivity and is a real step forward to massive IoT and enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) applications. The router also offers remote configuration, management and diagnostics.

Target markets include high data demand applications such as mobile internet access, CCTV cameras and security systems, industrial systems and utilities, medical, retail, AV systems traffic management and primary and back-up internet services. The router supports fallback via LTE (LTE-A Pro) and 3G networks for areas where 5G coverage is not yet developed.

The new router platform “v4” provides intelligence at the network edge with an extremely powerful Cortex A72 CPU at 1400 MHz, 4 GB eMMC memory, 4 MB flash memory, and 1024 MB RAM. The focus on high security is underlined with the use of Secure Boot, TPM 2.0, and a tamper button that ensure safe use in critical infrastructure systems.

The ICR-4453 is powered by the Conel OS Linux operating system that provides a wide range of enhanced networking features. A secure Web interface allows users to configure and manage routers from remote locations. The router supports multiple configuration profiles, automatic firmware updates, etc. The router can be used as a powerful EDGE computing gateway due to the ability to customise its software. Users may insert Linux scripts and add new features using additional applications called Router Apps (User Modules).

There is an existing free library of Router Apps or the user may create own app using Advantech SDK. The gateway can easily run applications like Node-RED or Docker (planned) that open the way to a multi-container world.

The ICR-4453 is designed and manufactured for use in harsh environmental conditions and has a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +75 °C, input voltage range from 9-48 VDC, is equipped with sleep mode for reducing energy consumption and is packaged in a robust metal casing for wall mounting, with an optional DIN-Rail mount.

As a standard the ICR-4453 is equipped with five Ethernet ports; 10/100/1000 Mbps (1x independent and 4x switch), SFP cage (independent port), one USB host 2.0, microSD reader, serial lines RS232 and RS485, CAN Bus, two binary inputs, and two binary outputs. The router contains two SIMs readers, which are located on the rear of the device and it is also possible to use one eSIM. The ICR-4400 has two mPCIe connectors that can be used for two Wi-Fi modules.

ICR-4453 is easy to manage using WebAccess/DMP, a full-featured cloud-based management, provisioning, and monitoring tool for mass deployment. The WebAccess/VPN is an ideal way to create secure virtual private networks on the Internet. 

WebAccess/DMP is a device configuration, diagnostics and management platform for Advantech routers. It is indispensable for rolling out large numbers of routers in the field and, where possible, have remote central management With WebAccess DMP projects have zero-touch provisioning when deployed. The Advantech ICR-4453 functions seamlessly with this platform and is recommended to all systems integrators.

i.MX RT1170

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Dual Core microcontrollers can bring a lot of benefits to today’s modern embedded designs in order to keep all of our design requirements in balance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Patrick Kennedy from NXP about why newer design requirements for today’s connected embedded systems are making this balancing act even harder than ever before and how the i.MX RT1170 can help solve these problems with its heterogeneous dual cores, MIPI interface, multi-core low power strategy and SRAM PUF technology can make all the difference in your next embedded design.
