G.L.E.N.® Trusted enabler for demanding IoT applications

Secure and reliable performance for your network edge

Humidity, dust, corrosives, extreme temperatures, electro-magnetic interferences and space limitations often prevent IoT implementations at industrial and remote locations. CGF integrates market leading embedded IT solutions to serve IoT, safety and security critical applications with high-speed connectivity and edge processing. CGF’s products are designed for the edge of your network and provide secure, reliable and simple to manage access for applications such as:

  • Integrated multi-functional lamp posts
  • Smart urban and road/railway infrastructure
  • Edge node for autonomous driving infrastructure
  • Displays for smart signing & advertisement
  • WiFi access points and 5G micro cells
  • Cameras and environmental sensors
  • Smart transportation infrastructure and ITS

Why G.L.E.N.®

G.L.E.N.® is designed to resist extreme environmental conditions for critical infrastructure, industry, security and outdoor applications: Fully ruggedized electronics is embedded in a hermetically sealed, precision milled aluminum housing with IP66-graded connectors. G.L.E.N.® withstands severest outdoor and industrial conditions, including intensive water exposure, dust, extreme temperatures, shock and vibration.

G.L.E.N.® guarantees its performance within extended hot and cold temperatures.​ Due to its fanless design without moving parts no maintenance is required over the whole life-cycle. All electronic components and parts are selected and manufactured according to highest industrial quality standards, which results  in unmatched overall reliability.

G.L.E.N.® provides high speed Gigabit Ethernet switching capacity for demanding IoT applications including Lidars, high resolution cameras, 5G mobile networks, WiFi-6 access points or displays for smart signing and advertisement. G.L.E.N.® is configurable with:

  • 2x 10 Gbit/s fibre or copper uplink
  • 4x 1 Gbit/s application ports

Each application port supports PoE+ and can be configured as logically separated network.

G.L.E.N.® provides data connection and power supply for the application with one wire to minimize installation effort. Each G.L.E.N.® application port supplies 1 Gbit/s data rate and DC power according to PoE+ (IEEE 802.3 at) with a M12 X-coded fully sealed connector. ​The DC power is reliably transformed by the G.L.E.N.® internal highly efficient AC-DC power converter with no in-rush current during switch-on.

G.L.E.N.® has a compact size and fits through standard lamp post openings. It comes with a mounting provision, which allows a “one-click” installation. All connectors have simple coupling with standard tools. G.L.E.N.® has status LEDs on its front. Internal and external manipulation detection provide reliable life-time condition information.

G.L.E.N.® is built on Cisco embedded hardware and software. Therefore G.L.E.N.® provisioning is fully automated with a zero-touch deployment. It prevents mistakes by automated configurations and has an easy-to-use WEB UI and familiar Cisco CLI. G.L.E.N.® seamlessly integrates in Cisco DNA Center infrastructure and operations. Hence, G.L.E.N.® supports policy based operations, cloud service management virtualization and full SD-WAN compliance.

Take the true benefit of the global leading Cisco network technology for scaling and operating your IoT edge-network.

G.L.E.N.® provides native Cisco DNA center integration with full compatibility, which guarantees policy based operations, resilient scalability and maximum operational efficiency.

Cisco DNA Center is a powerful network controller and management dashboard that allows to control your network, optimize investments and lower overall IT and IoT spendings.

“Cisco DNA Center is the only way we can keep up with the explosion of devices on our network.” (Marty Miller, Technology strategist Children’s Hospital Los Angeles)

G.L.E.N.® is built to seamlessly provide data centre security to the edge of your network. G.L.E.N.® operates with Cisco IOS and is fully compatibility to Cisco DNA Center. It has the complete enterprise-grade Cisco IOS-XE switching security features.

Ture IT security for your network edge without any compromise!
