E300 Series
Enterprise Router

2022 - 09 - 12

The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service with E300 Series Router is ideally suited for pop-up temporary locations, branches, stores, and restaurants. The all-in-one form factor includes full-featured routing, security, and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect branches to the Internet and critical applications without the need for extra hardware or complicated configurations. And the embedded LTE modem means that connectivity is always available from day 1 without waiting for a wired connection.

Ideal for Wireless WAN

For organizations moving to a Wireless WAN, the E300 offers the ability to pair LTE with a wired link and use LTE as a failover connection or a primary connection. For an all wireless WAN, the E300 offers Gigabit-Class LTE performance, which can support the throughput needs of a small- or medium-sized branch with the ability to add a second LTE connection to increase available bandwidth and reliability

5G Ready for Upward Compatibility

The E300 Enterprise Branch Router is 5G ready and can act as a controller for a Cradlepoint 5G wideband adapter. This capability ensures upward compatibility for 5G, while still allowing optimal placement of the 5G adapter. The unique capability of Cradlepoint to operate the adapter in captive mode means that the two separate, Ethernet-connected, appliances can be managed as a single entity.

Notable Features

  • Take advantage of an embedded, Gigabit-Class LTE modem for fast day-1 or primary connectivity.
  • Terminate a primary wired broadband link with LTE as failover for highly resilient hybrid connectivity.
  • Open temporary locations without compromising security or reliability with an all-in-one design and compact form factor.
  • Integrate into your existing network with standards-based dynamic routing and VPN tunnel support.
  • Define policies through centralized, cloud-based management for easy deployment at scale.
  • Add a second cellular modem for dual LTE connectivity.
  • 5G ready acting as Captive Modem controller for Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapters.
Key Software Capabilities

Cradlepoint NetCloud Service for the E300 provides everything needed to unlock the power of LTE at the network edge and connect users and IoT devices to critical applications and services. The NetCloud Service package for the E300 includes router software for optimizing routing, VPN, SD-WAN, and security capabilities. The cloud capabilities include group policy definition, reports, troubleshooting, and analytics dashboards. The service includes a warranty for as long as there is an active subscription on the router, online training, live and online support, and all software and firmware updates.

Router Services

 

Next generation hardware provides local processing power to handle demanding router-delivered services, such as support for VPN tunneling encryption that includes DMVPN, IPsec, GRE, and other tunneling technologies.

Security Services
