HOW TO ENTER

Cradlepoint offers networking solutions for distributed enterprises, and we want to know how you use Cradlepoint to empower your company or organization. For our Elastic EdgeSM Photo contest, we’d like to see who and what your company has deployed Cradlepoint solutions to connect. From retail outlets, to quick-serve restaurants, to emergency responders, healthcare providers, banks, and everyone in between, we want to know how Cradlepoint is helping enterprises deploy and manage an Elastic Edge.

The Elastic Edge of the network is:

Agile. Can your business bring up, bring down, or augment your WAN quickly and securely?
Quick-to-deploy. Is it fast and easy to get a new office, vehicle, or IoT device up and running on the WAN?
Easily managed. Do you have a complete, scalable view of the entire WAN from a single pane of glass? Can you troubleshoot without on-site IT support?
Reliable. Can your network rely on optimized performance and uptime across the WAN?
Secure. Is your network secured by a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN), with minimal hardware-based security?

Entries must be submitted electronically in a .png, .jpeg or .jpg format.  You must be able to disclose when and where the photo was taken upon request.

If you choose to include people in your submission, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary releases from the individuals depicted, and must be able to provide copies of those releases to Cradlepoint upon request within five (5) days of request. If you choose to disclose the name of the organization using the Cradlepoint product as depicted in the entry photo, you must have permission from that company and be able to provide written confirmation of permission upon request within five (5) days of request. Should Cradlepoint be made aware that any entry was submitted without the permission of the product owner or company depicted, the entry will be disqualified and the photo removed from Cradlepoint’s social media and the contest platform.

Entries must NOT include the following: 

Photos that violate or infringe upon another person's rights, including but not limited to copyright.

Cradlepoint shall determine entry eligibility in its sole and absolute discretion.
