5G, all-in-one, industrial-grade routing and switching platform
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.
The Catalyst IR8300 is designed to support the communications needs of the energy delivery infrastructure. This infrastructure includes substation applications supporting electrical transmission and distribution, renewable generation, oil and gas, water, distributed generation, co-generation, and trackside operations. Additional applications include transmission pipelines, distribution mains, and service lines for oil and gas and water. Router has been extensively tested to meet challenging substation compliance standards, including IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850-3.
