Cradlepoint targets both 5G and FirstNet buildouts for growth

451 Research

Cradlepoint has carved a role for itself in two exciting mobile network buildouts occurring concurrently in the US. Working with Verizon on its early 5G FWA POCs, it plays a role providing a platform for LTE-A backup in the case of 5G network service interruption. In the case of First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), it has gone through the pain and expense of two levels of certification and now is part of the FirstNet approved ecosystem. The first return on this effort has been the inclusion of a CP router with every ‘Emergency Drop Kit’ approved by FirstNet for first responder agencies.
