Cisco IoS Security

New! The Cisco 809 Hardened ISR

with Verizon Wireless XLTE

Deployable on the tops of mountains or the middle of deserts, the Cisco 809 Hardened ISR is an ideal solution for fixed and mobile IoT applications where space, heat dissipation, low power consumption and exposure to extreme temperatures in harsh environments, are critical factors.

The 809 ISR, Cisco’s smallest multimode 3G and 4G LTE wireless router, has an integrated 9.6-60 VDC power input and is designed to withstand hostile environments, including shock, vibration, dust, and humidity, and supports a wide temperature range to operate at –13 to 140°F (–25 to 60°C), and can operate up to 5000 feet!

Purpose built for deployment in Utility sub-stations, oil wells in remote locations, and for fleet and transportation applications in extreme temperatures, the 809 Hardened ISR allows you to deliver reliable IoT connectivity when and where you need it.

The Cisco 809 Hardened ISR Difference

To help, we offer this evaluation framework: Performance, Security & Support.



Fully integrated with Cisco IOS Software, the Cisco 809 delivers the Best.

Leveraging Cisco IOx, The 809 ISR combines enterprise-grade wireline-like services, such as quality of service (QoS), Cisco Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN), and Multi-VRF for highly secure data, voice, and video communications, and provides an extensible environment for hosting applications at the network edge.

In addition to industry leading functionality and connectivity options (tech specs found here), the 809 ISR now offers Verizon Wireless 4G XLTE support for fixed & mobile IoT applications, ease of deployment and management, and service extensibility to help you deploy new IoT services without compromise.

Purpose Built for Remote Locations

Ease of Deployment & Management

Extensibility for New Services

Widely deployed in the world’s most demanding networks, Cisco IOS is customer proven routing software. If you want IoT device security without compromise, you want the 819 with Cisco IOS.

The Cisco 819 leverages industry leading IOS security services, including firewallintrusion prevention, IPSec VPN and SSL VPN and Cisco ISR Web Security with ScanSafe, and Cisco IOS content filtering requiring no additional hardware or client software.

This enables branch offices, manufacturing sites, hospitals, and banks, for example, to intelligently redirect web traffic to the cloud to enforce granular security and acceptable use policies over user web traffic. With this solution, you can deploy market-leading web security quickly and easily to protect branch office users from web-based threats, such as viruses, while saving bandwidth, money, and resources.

The 809’s broadest support for wireless security GETVPN, DMVPN and Point to Point IPSec allows you the flexibility to deploy the security policy you need.

For those that want the Best in Network Security, the 809 ISR allows you to leverage Verizon Wireless Mobile Private Network (MPN). With an Industry first Multi-VRF support, the 809 supports NEMO protocol (IPv4-based Network Mobility) for Verizon Wireless DMNR (Dynamic Mobile Network Routing) services and allows for VPN flexibility and service and application security with the ability to deliver different services over different VRFs! Gain additional information by viewing the Verizon Wireless Private Network White Paper.

Further, Cisco Mobile VPN is a Cisco IOS IP Mobility solution that offers continuous secure mobility experiences to users on the move.

Users don’t need to continually restart and re-authenticate the connection or any intranet applications running on it. This helps improve their efficiency and productivity while protecting the security of corporate mobile traffic. Find more information here.

And, since the 809 ISR is a small form factor which can be deployed in public locations, the 809 ISR offers physical router security preventing people from leveraging configurations to hack into the network and embedded modem PIN based SIM-locking to prevent use if the device is stolen.

When you place your bet on your IoT project, you need to know you are backed by the best support in the industry. With Cisco, you are.

Do you really want to mix and match routers and OS in your network, and utilize and manage multiple support organizations?

Cisco can be that single source of router support for your must work IoT and Business Continuity services.

Your Cisco account team, in concert with thousands of Cisco certified partner personnel, Cisco TAC, and support tools via the Cisco support portal, combine to provide the support you need to deliver critical services to your users.    

Your online resource for industry leading routing support (recent awards), Cisco’s technical support homepage is your portal for accessing software downloads, product documentation, support tools and resources, and opening and monitoring TAC cases.

Specific support for the ISR 809 including model details, software downloads and release information, and reference configuration and troubleshooting guides can be found here.
