Data Sheet:

W2000/W2005
5GA Series

Designed for branches that require the higher performance of 5G and the flexibility of wireless, the Cradlepoint W-Series 5GA wideband adapters usher in the next generation of Wireless WAN networking. The W-Series is designed to accommodate the diverse spectrums, multiple generations, and breadth of new technologies introduced in 5G while delivering enterprise-class standards of scalability, comprehensive management, and security.

High Performance Wideband

The W-Series 5G Wideband Adapters are purpose-built for deployment in the new high-performance Sub-6 5G spectrum. To address the tradeoff of lower propagation, Cradlepoint designed the W-Series Adapter to be placed separately from the router for optimal signal reception with two available form factors. The stylized W2000 5G Wideband Adapter is designated for optimal indoor placement while the W2005 5G Wideband Adapter has metal construction with an IP67 rating and is designated for outdoor deployment.

Designed for Enterprise-Class Business

While the performance of 5G is top of mind, the W-Series was also designed with enterprise-class standards for high scalability, comprehensive management, and security. Because 5G is a collection of new spectrum, new technologies, and new network infrastructure that is rolling out over several years, the Cradlepoint 5G edge networking service and endpoints accommodate the diverse deployments of an organization with hundreds or even tens of thousands of sites.

Notable Benefits

  • Increase the size and types of your WAN use cases with 5G performance
  • Experience the dependability of dual connectivity with simultaneous 5G and 4G connections
  • Gain carrier-class connectivity using a software-defined modem and integrated multilevel test and recovery utilities
  • Deploy an enterprise-class 5G solution with greater simplicity and confidence with the wizard-based installation application
  • Manage the Cradlepoint router and 5G adapter as one entity for singular control and visibility
  • Evaluate the benefits of your 5G service with value confirmation tools built into the NetCloud Platform
  • Reduce truck rolls with advanced Out-of-Band Management
  • Deploy within any existing networking or SD-WAN environment

Key Software Capabilities

The NetCloud service powers every Cradlepoint wireless edge solution, including the 5G offerings. It enables customers to build and manage wireless WANs with complete lifecycle management, true zero-touch deployment, robust security, and foundational SD-WAN traffic management for optimal application performance and reliability. Here are several NetCloud features that support Cradlepoint 5G edge solutions.

5G Spectrum Solutions

The W-series portfolio supports all spectrum layers ensuring that organizations have the right solution for every location. The W2000 and W2005 support low- and mid-band layers while the W4005 supports low-, mid-, and high-band layers.

Cradlepoint Verify™ Mobile Application

As an extension to NetCloud, Cradlepoint Verify helps installers quickly and accurately install the W-Series indoor or outdoor units for optimal 5G signal reception. Upon a verified installation, users receive a detailed report that includes installation pictures, speed test results, and modem health metrics.

Complete Lifecycle Management

When paired with a Cradlepoint 5G-ready router, the remote W-Series modems appear and function within NetCloud Manager like an integrated modem, simplifying deployment and management while reducing licensing costs for the pair.

Out-of-Band Management

To mitigate the effects of an unreachable router, the W-Series offers efficient Outof-Band Management. Network administrators can connect to the router over the air, even if IP and Ethernet are unavailable on the router, improving uptime and reducing truck rolls.
