Enabling an Intelligent Planet

Deploying cellular routers effectively into industrial networks is much more than rugged, reliable hardware – it requires taking intelligence to the absolute edge. Hardware that is carrier-agile, cost-competitive, with the flexible configuration interfaces to fit M2M applications. More importantly than ever, a truly open development platform to build application software, host applications, seamlessly manage network connectivity and securely administer the system.

This is what defines a smart solution.

Smart Hardware

The versatility of industrial LTE applications requires hardware that is fit for purpose. Your purpose. Advantech offers a comprehensive selection of routers and gateways designed and built in the European Union with the right data speeds, the right interfaces and the rugged specifications required.

Intelligence Inside

The line between a router and an embedded computer is blurring in many applications today and depending on the processing power required, an intelligent router is significantly more cost effective than an embedded computer. New data demands for IIoT or operations optimization initiatives also open new questions as to where data is compiled, enriched and processed. With pre-built API’s into selected applications platforms, and an open environment that supports app development in Java, Python, C/C++ and Node Red, you’ll find more flexibility than with any other router on the market. You’re also welcome to check out our app library for available downloads on apps already developed to enhance specific router functionality.

Device Management Software

Our smart cellular routers are built and optimized for critical infrastructure applications in the most challenging and remote locations and environments. The simplified plug-and-play design with extensive remote management enables you to quickly configure, deploy and customize your installation from anywhere over an IP network.

What's New On Our Blog

Conel OS 6.1.10 released

New version of firmware for our routers is available on Engineering Portal.

This is a maintenance release and we expect it to be the last in the 6.1.x FW line.

All of our routers (without exceptions requiring operator's certification) are produced with 6.1.10 from today. Other models will continue once the certification is done.

As usual, 6.1.10 brings a line of fixes and improvements on board. Just to point out some:

  • Brute-force login attack blocking mechanism.
  • Dynamic execution time for automatic update.
  • Support for encrypting configuration backup.
  • Support for OpenVPN Management Interface (configurable).
  • Several fixes for cellular.
  • SACK vulnerability fix.

Security Advisory - SACK vulnerability

This security advisory is a reaction on the recently discovered network vulnerabilities in Linux kernel (see below on particular names and links).

These vulnerabilities can, under certain circumstances, be used by an attacker against a range of our routers running current firmware (6.1.9) with the potential result of the router rebooting.

We have already prepared a patch which closes the vulnerabilities. The patch will be included in future firmware versions (6.1.10, 6.2.0) when these are released.

Until the new firmware versions are available, you may apply any of the recommended workaround. The easiest workaround (and also the recommended one) is to disable SACK ...
