BOISE, ID — CradlePoint, a leading provider of 4G/3G network router solutions, toda yannounced a partnership with Verizon Wireless to offer three new 4G LTE wireless broadband solutions designed to get business online faster, keep their networks connected longer, and power high-speed access to today’s cloud computing services. Leading the market in 4G solutions, CradlePoint provides access to the Verizon 4G LTE Network through CradlePoint routers that use Verizon Wireless external USB data modem sticks.

Each business connectivity solution offers additional flexibility for businesses with targeted needs, including:

  • The CradlePoint MBR1200 helps businesses with the ability to create instant networks using Verizon 4G LTE at branch offices, retail locations or other remote operations, avoiding the cost and time required for wired line installations.                             
  • The CradlePoint CBA750 is designed to allow businesses to use both wired (DSL/Cable/T1) and wireless (Verizon 4G LTE) data networks in parallel to ensure a seamless connection to the Internet if your primary data connection fails, protecting your network availability with the fastest backup solution today.                             
  • The CradlePoint CTR35 converts wireless broadband into WiFi or Ethernet enabling mobile or remote network operations across a variety of applications, including kiosks, digital signage, temporary offices or mobile workforces - wherever there is a Verizon LTE signal - allowing multiple users or devices to share a single LTE data connection.

As an example, when using the solution as backup to primary Internet (failover), a retailer whose wired connection has been lost,can continue processing credit card transactions and run their point of sale systems ensuring they don’t incur revenue loss or create a poor customer experience. The affordability of the solution makes it practical for even the smallest businesses to deploy. But the robustness of features and ease of managing even thousands of deployed units across many retail locations makes it a perfect solution for multi-unit chains.

“Whether you’re an enterprise business with distributedbranch locations that need the highest level of network uptime, have operations or team members that require secure, mobile access to the internet for multiple devices, or simply want the flexibility and convenience of an instant, all-wireless network, Verizon’s 4G LTE network combined with CradlePoint’s high-performance 4G routers, will offer businesses more flexibility and reliability than ever before,” said Michael Toto, Director -  Enterprise & Government Partnerships, Verizon Wireless.

“When coupling CradlePoint's leading enterprise-grade solutions with the robust Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network we can offer business customers a proven, secure and reliable solution for enhancing network availability. With mission-critical enterprise applications increasingly moving to the Cloud, these solutions can help businesses to feel secure in that decision," said Brian Espy, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, CradlePoint.
