The GW2300 Series router is an industrial router designed for harsh environments such as roadside cabinets and other remote monitoring and control sites. PoE+ capability supplies up to 30W per Ethernet port to power roadside cameras and other PoE devices. Support for cellular radio modules provides very high availability for critical communications solutions. 
GbE Ethernet Ports
The GW2300 Series router supports up to four 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet interfaces. They can be configured as a single interface with Ethernet switching between them or as separate router interfaces.
The GW2300 Series router can be ordered with support for up to four PoE+ ports. 30 Watts is provided per port.

Digital Inputs and Outputs
Two digital inputs are provided that can be used to detect remote contact states for monitoring door open/close or PIR detectors or similar. Custom scripts can be written to determine the action to be taken on the detection of an input state change. Syslog events, SNMP traps or emails can be generated. There is also a relay contact output. This can be controlled by a script on detecting any event within the device, or it can be controlled remotely.

GPS Receiver
The GW2300 Series router includes a GPS receiver that can be used for positioning. The GPS socket has a DC voltage to power an active GPS antenna.

SMS Management
The GW2300 also supports SMS, so if the packet switched side of the network is down, you can send commands to the router to perform diagnostics or even a reboot.

Ingress Protection
The GW2300 has been designed with rubber seals around each connector, providing an IP41 ingress protection rating.

DIN Rail Mounting
A DIN rail clip is included, which enables simple mounting for industrial applications. Optional rubber feet can be supplied for table mounting.

Centralised Management and Monitoring
The GW2300 benefits from Activator, our centralised configuration management and monitoring system. Activator simplifies and automates deployment, management and support tasks in managed network environments.
