3.2.11 Cisco ISR 819
To provide M2M connectivity within the IoT, it is often necessary for a router to combine multiple technologies to communicate with multiple devices. The Cisco 819 ISR can combine Wi-Fi with GPS and 3G/4G WAN connectivity and location services. Combining these technologies allows the 819 ISR to function in many different environments. For example, in a transportation environment, mobile network end devices must communicate across long distances using 3G/4G networks. However, in a retail or manufacturing environment, Wi-Fi may be the best network option for stationary devices.
Computing capability can be built into Cisco IoT routers and switches. Cisco combines Linux with IOS, to create a distributed computing infrastructure to equip routers for Fog computing. This architecture is called IOx. IOx makes it easier to connect specialised, industry-specific systems at the edge of the network to create new sensing and control functions with Cisco routers.
The Cisco ISR 819 is part of a family of devices, the Cisco website has a section on the, which includes the 819.
