Cradlepoint NetCloud

 

Connecting the Elastic Edge

Cradlepoint’s NetCloud is an integrated platform that connects modern enterprises from the Edge to the cloud to ensure pervasive connectivity and greater availability. It combines advanced Enterprise Software-Defined Network (SDN) and Software-Defined Perimeter (SD-P) technologies that enable quick connectivity of people, places, and things for fixed and mobile branch connectivity and secure remote access.

The NetCloud platform delivers capacity and availability beyond what traditional WANs can deliver. Leveraging path diversity — including LTE and broadband — enterprises can realize secure 24x7 access for all workers and devices, regardless of location.

Our NetCloud platform leverages several key technologies so you can rapidly deploy and connect people and resources regardless of their location.

Elastic EdgeSM

The WAN is transforming from fixed branch locations to an increasingly fluid and flexible network Edge — the Elastic Edge. Driven by profound trends like cloud, mobile, LTE, and IoT adoption and usage, the new WAN Edge must be more scalable, secure, reliable, automated, and agile — and it must be constantly expanding, contracting, adapting, moving, and evolving as business needs dictate.

Wireless is essential to achieving the elasticity that Connected Enterprises require. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud platform provides the pathway to the Elastic Edge using LTE, software-defined policy management, and orchestration to eliminate the increasing complexity of today’s WAN.

Simplified Management

Easy, rapid network deployments are possible using NetCloud Manager. Day-1 configuration and setup of remote users and locations are quick and simple, without the need of CLI. Detailed analytic information and alerts help you with ongoing management of your network.

Software-Defined Perimeter Dark Cloud

Our cloud-first, invitation-only SD-P architecture offers significant operational savings to connect people and things. A private address space means that it’s a dark cloud, and hackers can’t hack what they can’t see. Additionally, it offers complete policy management so you can micro-segment your network, keeping different users or groups separate for additional security.

Better Business Continuity

Enterprises demand “always on” connections to ensure business is “always enabled." Cradlepoint offers multiple network on-ramps with a deep portfolio of platforms so businesses remain up and running regardless of location or load.

Orchestration & Policy Management

Getting the most out of your Elastic Edge means having the agility to rapidly change, provision, and configure your network. Otherwise, you are relegated to using traditional manual and inflexible approaches that can’t address the digital transformation happening on your network. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud is designed to eliminate the complexity of today’s WAN and reduce reliance on complex procedures.

 

NetCloud Platform

NetCloud consists of integrated components to enable seamless connectivity, security, management, and extensibility.

  • NetCloud Manager provides a single pane of glass so you can configure, monitor, and manage your connected resources from anywhere.
  • NetCloud OS is the software on our hardened routers, enabling primary/failover routing and WAN traffic control as well as edge services such as firewall, IDS/IPS, and security
  • NetCloud Engine is a software-defined, identity-based security perimeter to connect M2M and IoT devices to your network
  • Built-for-purpose routers for fixed site, branch, transportation, M2M/IoT, and failover requirements
  • SDK & APIs enable you to integrate and leverage Cradlepoint technologies for your own needs such as in-vehicle telemetry

 

"Cradlepoint's NetCloud platform is a key advantage to enterprises faced with digital transformation at the Edge — and it's virtually all enterprises. By combining simpler cloud management with higher capacity, availability, and LTE, enterprises can be more scalable, secure, reliable, and — most importantly — more agile."
