Data Sheet:

E300 Series
Enterprise Router

2022 - 12 - 13

The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service with E300 Series Router is ideally suited for providing 4G and 5G cellular connectivity, agile VPN security, and cellular optimized SD-WAN to pop-up temporary locations, branches, stores, and clinics. The all-in-one form factor includes full-featured routing, security, and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect offices and sites to the Internet and critical applications without the need for extra hardware or complicated configurations. And the embedded 5G or 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 5G or LTE with a wired link and use a cellular link as a failover connection, hybrid WAN or a primary connection. For an all-wireless WAN, the E300 offers 5G or LTE performance, which can support the throughput needs of a small- or medium-sized office with the ability to add a second cellular connection to increase available bandwidth and reliability.

5G, SD-WAN, and Security Integration

5G has emerged as an essential WAN infrastructure to offer agile and reliable connections.  The E300 Enterprise Router with 5G cellular intelligence makes it easy to deploy 5G-enabled networks while optimizing both cellular and wired traffic to enhance application performance. Security postures can be reinforced, and attack surfaces minimized with zero trust privileged access, protected IP addresses, detailed security policies and consolidated authentication usage.

 

Additionally, the E300 router can serve as the user equipment router for private cellular networks that provide reliable local area network connectivity where wireless LAN fails to meet the network needs due to large areas or excessive congestion.

Notable Features

  • Connect to the internet or applications anywhere with all-wireless 5G or LTE connectivity.
  • Terminate a primary wired broadband link with cellular 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.
  • Reduce network attack surface, build encrypted tunnels, and incorporate zero trust principles with NCX Secure Connect.
  • Optimize cellular and wired traffic flows for the best quality of experience (QoE) with SD-WA.
  • Define policies through centralized, cloud-based management for easy deployment at scale.
  • Add a second cellular modem for dual cellular connectivity.
  • Acts 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 5G and 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.

SD-WAN and Routing Services

 

SD-WAN and routing hardware provides local processing power to handle demanding router-delivered services, such as support for VPN tunneling encryption that includes NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect, DMVPN, IPsec, GRE, and other tunneling technologies. NetCloud Exchange SD-WAN optimizes cellular and wired traffic but adds data plan and carrier selection capabilities needed for wireless. NetCloud  delivers true zero-touch deployment with the ability to define and deliver policy across entire groups of endpoints. 

Security Services

 

NetCloud Service includes security features and options to optimize the E300 to meet the evolving security needs of distributed environments. The Essential service includes stateful zone-based firewall enhancement capability to Application Aware Traffic Steering with the Advanced package. Secure remote management and other security add-on capabilities such as IPS, Content Filtering, and NetCloud Exchange ZTNA help reduce the network attack surface. 

Cellular Intelligence

 

NetCloud Cellular Intelligence collection of software features that allow administrators with distributed Wireless WANs to visualize, optimize, and troubleshoot cellular connections, data plans, and traffic flow. These insights give IT teams the necessary tools to manage the unique demands of cellular with more predictable connectivity, deeper insights, and more accurate cost containment.

Remote Access and Troubleshooting

 

Connection Manager provides the ability to manage all WAN connection types, both wireless and wired, from a single software-defined policy. Our custom-built modem software ensures users establish Wireless WAN connectivity faster while maintaining the highest level of resiliency.

Cloud Insights

 

Use the dashboard for analytics on client, traffic, and modem data usage to gain insights into network status and make necessary adjustments. Configure device and wireless-carrier alerts to notify when important thresholds or limits are reached to know when to make changes
