Cradlepoint NetCloud: Securely Connecting People, Places and Things with 4G LTE, SD-WAN and Cloud Services

Distributed and mobile enterprises across many industries are embracing cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to increase business agility, empower distributed workforces, and gain operational insights—driving the need for always-connected people, places, and things. As a result, an increasing amount of enterprise network traffic is moving off private IP networks and onto the public Internet. The Cradlepoint NetCloud platform is designed specifically for this new “Interprise” era and allows companies to deploy private cloud networks over wired and wireless broadband Internet services for branch, mobile workforce, vehicle, and IoT networks.

The New "Interprise" Network

 

The integrated platform provides an entirely new way to build, secure, control, and manage end-to-end private networks in the cloud using wired and wireless broadband Internet services. Cradlepoint NetCloud has been rolled-out in several phases, with the latest phase being the Early Availability release of NetCloud Engine in October 2016.

NetCloud Engine

NetCloud Engine provides distributed, cloud-driven enterprises with a next-generation WAN—secure, software-defined, and delivered as a cloud-based service. The NetCloud Engine platform is fueled by SDN and virtualization software to eliminate the hardware, complexity, and operational costs of traditional WANs and extend the simplicity, security, and utility of Layer-3 LANs anywhere across the Internet.

 

Now IT teams can build and deploy virtual overlay networks in minutes to connect people, places, and things—like remote or distributed workforces, IoT devices, vehicles, pop-up stores or kiosks, or digital signage—across any private or public cloud, and provide secure access for remote users using Windows, iOS, Android, or Linux devices.
