Some of Cradlepoint’s best 4G LTE networking success stories come from in-vehicle deployments. The potential to reduce management hours and expenditures, along with the potential for exciting new technology applications, is proving beneficial to public- and private-sector organizations throughout the world.
Check out how three Cradlepoint customers are reaping the benefits of reliable 4G LTE connectivity for their fleets:
Quicker, More Reliable Communication During Emergencies
When Pike County emergency 911 dispatch, the police, and the fire departments in Troy, Alabama, began updating their systems with high-impact technologies such as Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) and electronic records, local officials knew they would need more reliable, secure connections. In the interest of constantly improving public safety, these agencies needed quicker communication and remote network management — without having to worry about network downtime. The agencies chose Cradlepoint’s COR IBR1100 in-vehicle routers with NetCloud Manager (NCM) PRIME to ensure constant connectivity, make critical information available more quickly, and improve cost-efficiencies to maximize taxpayer dollars.
“The COR IBR1100 provided the most cost-effective option among devices that met all of the departments’ needs,” said Troy Chief of Police Randall Barr. “Also, the man-hour savings that come from remote cloud management added a lot of value for us.”
Enterprise-Grade Connectivity for Luxury Limousines
JetLoungeX (JLX) had a vision to create the most advanced mobile entertainment system platform ever created for the luxury limousine, mobile gaming, corporate, and party bus transportation industry. To do so, the company needed enterprise-grade, cost-effective mobile network connectivity solutions with the capabilities to support high bandwidth network demands and latency sensitive mobile applications. Cradlepoint provided the necessary mobile network connectivity to enable JLX to make its luxury transportation services dream a reality with a compact, all-in-one solution.
"JLX did not exist until we brought Cradlepoint on board. The company solved our business and technical needs. … Not only is it an all-inclusive solution, but feature-rich product offering,” said Devin Foxx, CEO at JLX a subsidiary of TheXrossOverGroup, Inc. (TXG).
POS, CCTV & Cloud Management on NYC Boats
Statue Cruises is the exclusive provider of tickets and tours to and from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York City. To ensure uninterrupted credit card processing and CCTV camera feeds, the company uses the AER2100 and NetCloud Manager to utilize WiFi as WAN for primary connections and cellular broadband failover whenever the boats travel outside the range of their WiFi network.
“Instead of being forced to get on the boat to make a change, we can make the adjustment right from our desk. With NCM, I save so much time and energy,” said Jerry Burchard, IT systems administrator, Status Cruises.
