CradlePoint IBR650E Hardware Overview
Ports, LED’s and Switches
Power 12VDC: The power connector includes two pins for power and two pins for GPIO (General Purpose
Input/Output) functionality. The included power adapter, however, only connects to the power pins. You will
need a separate adapter for GPIO functionality.
Reset: You can return your router to factory default settings by pressing and holding the Reset button. This
button is recessed, so it requires a pointed object such as a paper clip to press. Press and hold for 10 seconds
to initiate reset.
Ethernet Ports: By default, the IBR650 has one WAN (Wide Area Network—your internet source) port and
one LAN (Local Area Network) port. Each of these ports can be reconfigured, however, if you need two LAN or
two WAN Ethernet ports.
Ethernet LED:
- Solid Green – connected
- Blinking Green – data transfer activity
Micro USB: This port can be used to to attach a direct, manual firmware upgrade if necessary.
-6-
Power On/Off:
- I = On
- O = Off
Power LED:
- Blue = On
- No light = Off
ATTN LED:
- Used with Modem LED for additional LED indications below.
Modem LED:
-
Green = On and operating normally
Blinking Green = Connecting
Amber = Not available (idle, for example)
Blinking Amber = Cellular data connection error
No light = Off
Additional LED Indications:
- Factory reset button detected = ATTN and modem LED’s blink amber twice
-Error during USB firmware upgrade = ATTN and modem LED’s blink red
Modem Antennas: The IBR650 comes with two modem antennas to enhance reception for the embedded
modem. These antennas are simple to attach and adjust. In most typical installation cases only one antenna
will be installed on the RX Diversity port.

Modem Activation
NOTE: CradlePoint IBR650E modems purchased from CSI will be pre-configured; however, if your modem has
lost its configuration, you can load a configuration file or manually set up your modem. The default configuration file is included on the CD that shipped with your modem kit. Alternatively, you can request a configuration file from productsupport@cellularspecialties.com
The default configuration has the following parameters:
•
DHCP is off
•
Port forwarding is set up for http (port 80), SNMP (ports 161/162) & SSH (port 22) for 2 devices
•
Both Ethernet 0 & Ethernet 1 should be set to Local Network (LAN).
•
Routing mode is NAT and Access Control for both the Primary & Guest LAN is set to Admin Access
CradlePoint IBR650E Setup Instructions for Verizon Wireless DSP
Deployments
Step 1 - Getting the modem ready for OTASP (Over the air service provisioning)
NOTES: Do not make any changes to the DSP Local Network, Remote Network or SNMP Configuration in the DSP interface UNLESS the DSP has already been configured for use with a CSI Remote
Monitoring Kit using a USB connection. If this is the case, log into the DSP, click on the Remote
Network tab, choose “Disabled,” click on “Change Settings” and then reboot the DSP prior to proceeding.
Manually set your computer’s IP address to 192.168.1.2.
Connect a straight through ethernet patch cable from to your laptop ethernet port to the “COMPUTERS or
LOCAL DEVICES (LAN) default” port of the CradlePoint IBR650E. If you need assistance changing your network settings, please refer to the “Additional Tips” section of the DSP user’s manual or to your OS documentation.
Go to 192.168.1.1 in your browser to launch the setup GUI. You should see the following screen:
Enter the default password, which is csi1234.
-12-
Step 2: Activating the CradlePoint IBR650E on the Verizon Wireless Network:
Click on the Internet tab, then select Connection Manager
Next, highlight “Modem: Internal EVDO and then click on Control
-13-
Click on the Activate button
The modem will now contact the Verizon Wireless Network for authentication. If the ESN has been set up
with an active account, the modem will respond activated within 3-5 minutes.
Once you see the above message, reset or power cycle the modem using the on/off switch.
-14-
Step 3: Configuring your modem for port forwarding, to support one or multiple
devices:
CradlePoint IBR650E modems purchased from CSI will be pre-configured; however, if your modem has lost its
configuration, you can load a configuration file or manually set up your modem. The default configuration file
is included on the CD that shipped with your modem kit. Alternatively, you can request a configuration file
from productsupport@cellularspecialties.com.
If your modem is already pre-configured, you needn’t proceed past activation unless you wish to change the
default settings.
To load a saved configuration, click on the System Settings tab and select System Software. Click “Restore
Settings, Upload from file” and point to the saved configuration file. Suggestion: If you do not already have
a configuration file, create one by visiting this screen of a pre-configured modem UI. Go to “Backup Current
Settings, Save to disk” to do so.
Port Forwarding
Even if you are only connecting a single device, port forwarding is used.
The modem’s GUI has remote port 8080 associated with it. To access the modem UI remotely, you
will enter the IP address provided by the wireless service provider, followed by “:8080.” Example:
http://166.1xx.2xx.3xx:8080/
To access each DSP/device remotely, you will enter the IP address that is assigned to the modem, followed by a colon (:) and the External Port that you assigned to that DSP. If you have access to the internet, test this before leaving the site. (For example, to access the web interface for DSP/device 1, enter
http://166.1xx.2xx.3xx:8001.)
To access a device via SSH, enter the correct corresponding port into your SSH client (preconfigured to use
8022 for device 1).
If you are connecting multiple repeaters and/or devices, it is recommended that the “External” port for each
device be as unique as possible. For example, in a two DSP setup, use 600x, 700x & 800x for DSP 1, and
610x, 710x & 810x for DSP 2. Each DSP/device will need to have a unique IP address in addition to the
unique port assignment. DSP “1” will keep the default IP address of 192.168.1.100. For each additional DSP,
visit “Local Networking” and change the IP address to 192.168.1.101, 192.168.1.102, etc. Please label each
repeater with its changed IP address to prevent local connection problems in the future. When changing or
re-configuring Port Forwarding, you must use the correct IP Address for each device. If only one or two devices are being monitored, no switch is required. Either port on the modem will work. A modem with default
port forwarding will look like the following screen.
-15-
LAN Settings
Under Network Settings, select Local Networks. On both Primary & Guest LAN, DHCP Server should be disabled to prevent misuse of the modem.
You may change the Guest LAN IP Address at this point. The Guest LAN IP can be used to monitor other DAS
equipment on a different network/subnet. You will also need to change the IP address of the computer that
you are using if you wish to access the modem on the Guest LAN (see section under “LAN Settings” for more
information).
For Ethernet Port Configuration, both Ethernet 0 & Ethernet 1 should be set to Local Network (LAN).
Routing mode is NAT and Access Control for both the Primary & Guest LAN should be set to Admin Access.
-16-
Additional Features
System Automatic Reboot – The CradlePoint IBR650E allows you to set an automatic reboot daily, weekly or
monthly. Go to System Settings, System Control to utilize this feature.
-17-
Dual LAN
The CradlePoint IBR650E allows the use of 2 distinct LAN’s, which is useful when connecting equipment that
already has an established subnet (a fiber DAS network for example). Either Ethernet port will support either
LAN. The Guest LAN IP Address can be changed to support your requirement. Click on the checkbox next to
Guest LAN, then click on Edit. A box will open where you can change the IP address.
Step 4: Connecting the modem to the repeater
Your modem comes with a kit that includes everything you need to connect it in line with the donor antenna &
DSP. The donor cable should connect to the “Input” Port of the directional coupler, and the provided NM-NM
jumper should be used to connect the “Through” Port of the directional coupler to the donor input port on the
DSP. If your site uses separate Cellular Band & PCS band donor antennas, please ask the Wireless Service
Provider which donor to connect the modem in line with. The NM-SMAM jumper should be connected between
the “Coupled” Port of the directional coupler and one of the antenna ports on the modem (the included paddle
antenna can be connected to the other port). Connect the supplied ethernet patch cable between the modem and the repeater. (You may also use a cross-over ethernet cable if necessary).
NOTE: If you are connecting to another brand of repeater or other device (i.e. DAS gear), that devices default gateway must match the modem’s (192.168.1.1 by default).

Functionality Test
You must be connected to the internet for the following steps.
Once you’ve made your physical connections, connect your laptop to the internet and attempt to log in to
the DSP over the air (through the modem). Remember, you will type in the IP address that Wireless Service
Provider assigned to your modem, followed by a colon and the port number that is assigned to each protocol.
Example: To access the Web UI, enter http://166.xxx.xx.xxx:8001
*Reminder* Please make sure that the Wireless Service Provider has the correct port assignment for SNMP
(usually port 161 on each device).
If required by the Wireless Service Provider in your market, you can visit the System Health screen after logging in and click on “Trigger Test Alarm” under Band 1 and/or Band 2 to verify that alarm monitoring is working. Once the Wireless Service Provider representative has confirmed receipt of the alarm, you must clear it
to stop the alarm from reporting.
NOTES:
1, Please leave this manual, the DSP manual and any other necessary materials at the site for future service
visits.
2. It may be necessary to reboot the modem and/or DSP after configuration. Please do so if you do not gain
remote access upon completion of the configuration steps above.
3. Please remember to document the User Name and Password, and provide this to the Wireless Service Provider representative who is monitoring the DSP.
