Cradlepoint has announced the IBR600C series, a compact semi-ruggedized router for failover, vehicle, and m2m applications. The IBR600C (includes WiFi) and IBR650C (no WiFi) all feature multiband 3G/4G/LTE modems that cover a variety of North American networks and are certified for use on Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Canadian networks. Each model is pre-set for a particular carrier, but users can easily flash the on-board modem firmware for use with any of the other supported carriers. 

In addition to expected features like failover, WiFi as WAN, load balancing, and IP Passthrough, the IBR600C series provides a variety of updates over the older IBR600 series, including:
  • Dual SIM slots for redundancy
  • 2 x ethernet ports that can each be set to either WAN or LAN (1 x 10/100 and 1 x 10/100/1000)
  • Additional memory
  • Compatibility with the COR extensibility dock (allows users to add another MC400 modem and adds additional ethernet ports and expansion support)
  • Ruggedized enclosure
  • 9-33V voltage input range
  • Temperature sensor and thermal shutdown alerts with QoS
The IBR600C has an MSRP of $699.99, while the IBR650C (which includes all the same features except WiFi) has an MSRP of $649.99. The entire IBR600C series will be available May 2017.

Also announced today was an expansion of the IBR900 line. The IBR900LPE-VZ utilizes the same ruggedized IBR900 body and all included features as the rest of the line, but the included modem includes 3G EVDO failback for Verizon and Sprint (the Cat6 models previously available supported LTE for those carriers, but not 3G failback - which is critical for users in areas where LTE is not available or who need to ensure they can failback while traveling to remote locations). Cradlepoint will also be offering the IBR900LPE-VZ-NPS, which doesn't include the AC power supply or antennas. Both of the new models are pre-set for Verizon, but users can easily update the embedded modem for use on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Canadian carriers as well.
