In June 2022, Perle released the IDS-710 Industrial Ethernet Switch. This 10-port Gigabit switch is packed with enterprise grade functionality inside a tiny DIN Rail enclosure that will fit into any space. With support for both fiber and copper networks, advanced performance, and real-time deterministic network operation, these Industrial-grade Switches are designed to stand up to -40 to 70°C operating temperatures, surges, vibrations, and shocks found in industrial automation, government, military, oil and gas, mining, and outdoor applications.

Also released in 2022, the IRG7440 5G Router is the first product in its class that does not require an annual subscription (or license fees) to access features, maintain operation, or download software updates. This router provides fast, secure, and reliable 5G NR or CAT20 LTE coverage for a wide variety of IoT and M2M applications. It will function as a 5G Router and four-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switch in a single-box solution with IPv4 and IPv6 supported on both the WAN and LAN sides. Ideal as a 5G failover and out-of-band management solution, the IRG7440 Router can also be deployed in 3G or 4G environments to ensure a seamless transition to 5G over time. The extensive routing protocol support (RIP, OSPF, BGP-4, VRRP, IPv4, IPv6, OpenVPN, IPSec VPN, DHCP), zone-based firewall, 2 Factor Authentication, and remote authentication (RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP) management, ensures the IRG7440 Industrial 5G Router will integrate seamlessly with any infrastructure to control access to devices in the field and protect inside networks from unauthorized users.

In addition, Perle Systems was also shortlisted in two additional categories where winners will be determined by a jury of experts and journalists: The IRG7440 5G Router is in the running for Bench Tested Product of the Year, while Perle's collaboration with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is a finalist in the International Network Project of the Year category.
