Ruggedized for industrial use keeping the same dimensions, configuration possibilities, and full operating system compatibility with Advantech cellular routers including support of software platforms WebAccess/VPN and WebAccess/DMP. 

ICR-2701 offers a more powerful CPU and amply of data storage to ensure a long lifecycle (software updates) with broad software customization possibilities for users. The router has also a TPM 2.0 chip (Trusted Platform Module) onboard verifying router integrity to provide a trusted solution as a response to increasing cybersecurity demands in many industrial and public sectors.  LAN router ICR-2701 is equipped with 2 × Ethernet 10/100 ports with two independent LANs/IP addresses and 1 × USB 2.0 host port. Optional built-in WiFi 802.11 ac,a,b,g,n with AP, Client and Multirole modes are available.

The 1.3 GB eMMC available storage for customers with an open Linux platform and the wide possibility of programming customer SW applications in Python and C/C++ ICR-2701 offers a real open development platform for Industrial IoT applications. Advantech existing Router App library (User modules) with apps already developed to enhance specific router functionalities includes industrial protocol conversions, dynamic protocols, and support of IoT platforms such as MS Azure, Cumulocity, and others.

ICR-2701 is easy to install individually and in mass deployments scenarios too by using a full-featured configuration and monitoring software tool WebAccess/DMP. Safe remote VPN access to customer devices and PCs connected to routers through Internet can be administrated by additional software WebAccess/VPN.

Using ICR-2701 in the industrial and non-industrial environments brings the key advantage in full compatibility with Advantech cellular routers where complete communication structure is unified and the same procedures and tools can be used for cellular and non-cellular parts of the application as well. LAN routers are frequently used as secure LAN to WAN gateways and VPN appliances in a large scope of monitoring and data acquisition systems.
