The education world is helping drive the cutting-edge 3G/4G technology movement: WiFi on school buses is starting to gain traction. School districts around the country are discovering that by installing the Cradlepoint COR IBR600, they can quickly and easily create a "rolling study hall" that is ideal for longer road trips, commutes to off-campus classes, etc.
As PANDORA prepared to open a new store in a Pennsylvania mall right before the critical holiday sales season, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) strike threatened to cripple their network. The store could not have opened without a quality Internet connection; delays would have been expensive:

The Cradlepoint in Action Photo Contest was held March 1–April 12, 2013. We invited our customers to tell their stories of how they use Cradlepoint products, with the winners determined by votes on Facebook. Over the next few weeks we will be publishing some of their stories.
I recently joined the advisory board for M2M Evolution magazine, a new publication from TMC. I will be a regular contributor for the magazine, which provides in-depth coverage of the shift toward greater connectivity in the rapidly expanding machine-to-machine environment.

With our latest Cradlepoint in Action Facebook photo contest we challenged our customers to demonstrate how they connect, and they showed up.
With the recent 4.1 and 4.2 firmware releases, we have bulked up our arsenal of advanced routing protocols, adding all of the following protocols to Cradlepoint COR and to the MBR1400 and ARC MBR1400:
VRRP – Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol STP – Spanning Tree Protocol Dynamic Routing Protocols: RIP – Routing Information Protocol OSPF – Open Shortest Path First BGP – Border Gateway Protocol
One of the salesmen who sits near me likes to say that he's "saving the world, one router at a time …" He means it tongue-in-cheek, of course, because while things like business continuity solutions and really awesome 4G-powered digital signs are, well, really awesome, they aren't exactly curing cancer or eradicating poverty …
