The CGR 1000 Series is the latest addition to Cisco's Connected Grid portfolio designed for utilities to provide a highly secure, reliable, and scalable communication infrastructure. These ruggedized products are certified to meet harsh environmental standards and support a wide variety of communications interfaces such as Ethernet, Serial, Cellular, WiMAX, and Radio Frequency Mesh.
The Cisco CGR 1000 routers are powered by Connected Grid Operating System (CG-OS) that is built upon Cisco's world class networking technologies and adapted to the needs of energy utilities. This software delivers grid operators with the benefits of open standards-based, multi-service networking, strong network security, robust manageability, and high reliability. The distributed intelligence capabilities of CG-OS software allows customers to run applications such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) protocol translation on the routers directly, thereby eliminating the need for additional devices.
