The Cisco Catalyst IR8300 Rugged Series Router is Cisco’s first industrial-grade fully integrated routing and switching platform. Built on the Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) and Quantum Flow Processor (QFP), which powers the industry-leading Cisco Catalyst products, the IR8300 is designed to provide outstanding flexibility and adaptability to address the latest needs of the network evolution. The IR8300 supports U.S. public safety FirstNet services and new 5G services and is built for accelerated services, multilayer security, and edge intelligence. It can be deployed in the harsh, rugged environments found in the energy, transportation, and oil and gas industries.

  • Accelerated services with Cisco Software-Defined WAN – Cisco SD-WAN is a set of intelligent software services that allows you to connect users, devices, and branch office locations reliably and securely across a diverse set of WAN transport links. The Catalyst IR8300 router can dynamically route traffic across the best link based on up-to-the-minute application and network conditions for great application experiences. You get granular control over application performance, bandwidth usage, data privacy, and availability of your WAN links?control you need as your branches conduct greater volumes of mission-critical business with both on-premises and cloud controllers. With dual 5G module support on this platform customers can have multiple wireless carrier options to route their WAN traffic depending upon their needs.
  • Application performance optimization – Enable SD-WAN networks to meet Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) and maintain strong performance, even if network problems occur. With branch multicloud access, you can accelerate your Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications with a simple template push from the SD-WAN controller. Features such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) optimization, Forward Error Correction, and packet duplication help improve application performance for a better user experience.
  • Multi-layer security – You can now move your traditional and complex WAN networks to a more agile software-defined WAN with integrated security. The Catalyst IR8300 Rugged Router connects branch offices to the internet and cloud, with industry-leading protection against major web attacks. Secure Direct Internet Access (DIA) to the branches helps optimize branch workloads for improved performance, specifically for cloud-hosted applications. At the same time, DIA helps protect your branches from external threats.
  • Cloud-native agility with a programmable software architecture – Cisco continues to offer a feature-rich traditional Cisco IOS XE routing stack on the Catalyst IR8300 platform. IP routing, IPsec, Quality of Service (QoS), firewall, Network Address Translation (NAT), Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR), Flexible NetFlow (FNF), L2 Loop Protection & Redundancy Protocols and many other features are part of Cisco IOS XE, a fully programmable software architecture with API support and a wide variety of protocols and configurations.
  • 5G – The Catalyst IR8300 Rugged Series Router is built for 5G networks. With higher throughputs with Cat18 LTE and 5G, WAN networks are looking at wireless WAN as primary transports for different use cases. The IR8300 supports both integrated pluggable modules and external cellular gateway modules with LTE/5G capability for improved throughputs that address these use cases. Based on a specific branch?s direct line of sight and cellular coverage, either an integrated or external gateway can be chosen.
