CradlePoint, Inc. Key Developments
Cradlepoint Announces the Suite of LTE Advanced
Apr 19 16
Cradlepoint announced the suite of LTE Advanced (LTE-A) routing platforms for branch and in-vehicle networks. As carriers are introducing Category 6 LTE-A technology into their networks to increase bandwidth speeds and coverage, Cradlepoint is the first to empower businesses to leverage these capabilities with an enterprise-grade WAN solution. Cradlepoint has already set the standard for connecting enterprise networks with LTE to more easily and reliably complement, augment, and extend their existing primary networks. By integrating LTE-A capabilities into its solution portfolio, it is supporting even faster connections and better coverage so its customers can do more and wire less. Cradlepoint’s LTE-A modems will be embedded in Cradlepoint’s AER series of edge routing solutions, ARC series of failover and Out of Band Management solutions, and in the COR IBR1100 ruggedized mobile network solution. The new platforms, in concert with new firmware and Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) features, enhance Cradlepoint’s solutions for enterprise edge networks like retail, food & beverage, and branch office verticals, and transportation or in-vehicle networks like police and emergency responders, mass transit, mobile healthcare, and commercial fleets.

Cradlepoint announced it is enabling school districts to provide always-on connectivity for evolving instructional needs with solutions that are newly eligible under E-rate funding. School districts experience a unique set of challenges including unreliable connectivity, maintaining compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and ensuring network agility for evolving school needs and emerging digital trends like online testing, streaming media and cloud-based applications.
