IXrouter: Industrial VPN router and edge gateway
The IXrouter connects your industrial devices via ethernet, Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE to the Internet for direct access from IXON Cloud.
Choosing the IXrouter or the IXagent?
When you need a more complex solution, for example because you want to connect several machines or devices, you choose the IXrouter. The IXagent is recommended if you want to connect to only one machine, don't want to buy extra hardware and want a fast and cheap solution. The table below shows the most important differences.
