End of sale: LANCOM IAP-321-3G

3G router with WLAN for M2M applications in harsh environments

The M2M cellular router LANCOM IAP-321-3G features an integrated HSPA+ module and 802.11n WLAN. On cellular networks the router achieves data rates of up to 21 Mbps downstream and 5.76 Mbps upstream. Thanks to its robust full-metal housing and the extended temperature range, the device is ideal for stationary and mobile connectivity for machines and automated systems in harsh environments—independent of wired broadband services. For machine-to-machine communications, the LANCOM IAP-321-3G features a serial COM port for COM-port forwarding. This enables systems that do not support IP to be integrated into a company network. The LANCOM IAP-321-3G also has a Gigabit Ethernet interface and numerous networking features such as IPsec VPN, VLAN support, and an object-oriented stateful inspection firewall.


The M2M cellular router LANCOM IAP-321-3G securely integrates machines and automated systems into your company network. Thanks to the router's built-in HSPA+ modem, large quantities of data can be quickly transferred from production machines, electronic displays, ticket machines and ATMs. Cellular networks can be used for secure VPN networking at any location. The LANCOM IAP-321-3G has been especially designed for demanding requirements in harsh environments: The dust-resistant IP-50 housing is made entirely of metal and enables the router to be mounted on a top-hat rail, wall or mast. Furthermore, the router's own serial interface can even connect non-IP capable machines into IP networks.

More flexibility.

The LANCOM IAP-321-3G offers exceptional flexibility. Thanks to the widespread coverage of cellular networks, the device guarantees Internet connectivity almost anywhere. Where HSPA+ is not available, the cellular modem is backwards compatible to UMTS, EDGE and GPRS. Integrated into the LANCOM IAP-321-3G is a universal power adapter: Designed for bipolar industrial plug connectors, it allows for power supplies ranging from 10 – 28 volts. The mounting plate supplied with the device contributes to its flexibility, as the cellular router can be installed of on walls, masts and also on top-hat rails. For mobile applications and installation in public places, the LANCOM IAP-321-3G features an integrated GPS module to determine the position of the device. This can for example be used as an anti-theft protection as the device can stop operating if its location is changed.

More security.

LANCOM guarantees you communications with the highest standards of security from an extensive range of encryption and authentication mechanisms. With the aid of Multi-SSID and protocol filters, up to 8 different user groups can each be assigned with different levels of security. VLAN technology, matured quality-of-service functions and bandwidth limitation enable the reliable transmission of data streams. The VPN gateway in the LANCOM IAP-321-3G with its 5 simultaneous IPsec channels and high-security encryption by 3-DES or AES provides optimal security for VPN connections. Thanks to IPSec-over-HTTPS (based on the NCP VPN Path Finder technology) secure VPN connections are also available where IPsec is blocked by the cellular networks. The LANCOM IAP-321-3G furthermore assures network security with the object-oriented stateful inspection firewall, intrusion prevention, Denial of Service protection and access control by MAC or IP address.

More management.

LCMS, the LANCOM Management System, is a free software package for the LANCOM IAP-321-3G. It caters for the configuration of the device, remote maintenance and network monitoring. The central component of LCMS, LANconfig, is used to configure the cellular router and other LANCOM devices on the network. LANmonitor offers detailed, real-time monitoring of parameters, it provides access to log files and statistics, and it can carry out a detailed trace-protocol analysis. Other functions in LCMS include the firewall GUI for object-oriented setup of the firewall, automatic backup of configurations and scripts, and the intuitive folder structure with convenient search function.
