Cradlepoint’s NetCloud cloud management service and range of solutions for 5G have endowed it with an early mover advantage in the emerging market

​Based on its recent analysis of the global 5G wireless wide area network (WWAN) solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Cradlepoint, Inc. with the 2020 Global Product Leadership Award for pioneering the segment of enterprise WWAN. More than 23,000 global customers in the retail, financial services, healthcare, transportation, public sector, and other industries rely on Cradlepoint to keep their branch networks, mobile networks, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices always connected and protected.

“Cradlepoint specifically focuses on wireless edge routers and endpoints that are managed from the cloud. The company leads in cloud-managed 4G LTE and gigabit 4G network edge solutions and is the first supplier of 5G NR edge solution for enterprise,” said Troy Morley, Senior Industry Analyst. “The company has a range of edge routers and endpoints that serve branches, vehicles, and other mobile applications.

Cradlepoint solutions include its NetCloud Service, a cloud-based management and orchestration solution that enables each wireless edge solution to be managed from anywhere. Every customer Cradlepoint solution, whether it is one edge router or thousands of routers and endpoints, can be managed from a single location or multiple locations. In addition to enabling zero-touch installation and ongoing endpoint management, the NetCloud service includes analytics, insights, and extensibility tools.

Cradlepoint offers several solutions depending on the needs of the enterprise. For instance, Cradlepoint W-Series 5G Wideband Adapters provide an Ethernet-remotable 5G modem and antenna system in both indoor and outdoor units that span low-, mid-, and high-band 5G connections. The new Cradlepoint E3000 Series wireless edge router is 5G-optimized and engineered to be a companion branch router for the W-Series, interconnecting over a high-speed 2.5Gbps Ethernet port. Pairing it with a W2000 indoor unit gives customers a complete wireless WAN solution for low-band and mid-band (Sub-6) 5G, while paring with the W4005 outdoor unit delivers high-band 5G (millimeter wave). Packaged as part of the Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service, the E3000 Series utilizes the latest multi-core, wireless system-on-chip technology to deliver compelling price/performance relative to traditional wired branch routers.

“Cradlepoint continues to enhance and evolve its solutions by introducing solutions such as 5G NR WWAN routers and endpoints,” noted Morley. “With 75 percent of the world’s top retailers, 50 percent of the Fortune 100, and first responder agencies in 25 of the largest US cities, Cradlepoint is a clear leader in the WWAN market.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid market acceptance. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
