Mobile Networks

For organizations that depend on field forces and mobile networks—like first responders, transportation departments, utility crews, insurance disaster teams, and many others—secure and reliable 4G LTE connectivity is essential. Vehicles and mobile command centers have become the field communications hub, allowing users to access mission-critical applications and the Internet from anywhere, and keeping data flowing to the cloud from on-board telemetry, sensors, surveillance cameras, and other devices.

Cradlepoint’s Elastic EdgeSM vision provides a blueprint for next-generation mobile networks that deliver pervasive connectivity, cloud-like agility, and software extensibility with enterprise-class visibility, security, and control. All-inclusive NetCloud Solution Packages for Mobile Networks, based on COR Series routers, are flexible, reliable, and cloud-managed.



Ruggedized All-in-One Solution

Purpose-built to withstand extreme environments, the COR Series replaces multiple “boxes” with a ruggedized, all-in-one mobile network solution that is ideal for in-vehicle and command center installations. Each model supports up to two 4G LTE modems, a multi-port Ethernet switch, 802.11ac WiFi, GPS, and ports for ignition and sensor integration. The Linux-based NetCloud OS software provides advanced routing, SD-WAN for LTE, and security functionality. Everything is simple to configure, orchestrate, and manage from the cloud using NetCloud Manager.

Mobile SD-WAN

Cradlepoint brings the reliability and efficiency of SD-WAN technology to mobile networking. NetCloud OS optimizes multi-link 4G LTE connectivity and combines application-based visibility, security, and control with dynamic, policy-based traffic steering based on cellular signal strength, throughput, latency, and data plan consumption. Other unique features include Auto-QoS, intelligent selection of carriers and APNs, and the ability to persist application sessions during periods of temporary signal loss.

GPS & Telematics Integration

Precision GPS and telematics integration enable a wide range of location-based applications, such as Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), asset tracking with geofencing, and vehicle performance data. With secure data center and cloud connectivity and real-time data, fleet and field managers have a wealth of actionable data at their fingertips to make better-informed decisions—saving time and money while improving business outcomes.

Unified Internet Security

Many mobile networks require strong Internet security for on-board public WiFi and cloud application access. NetCloud OS integrates Unified Threat Management (UTM) for direct Internet access with multi-zone firewall, IPS/IDS and content filtering, as well as Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 support for public safety and government agencies. Cradlepoint’s unified and cloud-managed approach to mobile network security reduces cost and minimizes risks by eliminating extra hardware, increasing visibility and control, and delivering continuous security updates.

Connect & Protect Mobile & IoT Devices

Many field forces utilize laptops, tablets, and smartphones that are not always connected to a secure mobile network. Deploying NetCloud Perimeter Client on these devices allows users to access the data center and cloud from any Internet connection over a perimeter-secured and encrypted cloud network. For on-board IoT devices such as sensors, cameras, and digital signage, NetCloud Perimeter Gateway on the router provides secure, persistent device-to-cloud connections that can be set up in minutes and are self-optimizing.
