1. Where did your company name originate from?
We were the first company to create a product that turned a cell signal into a personal WiFi hot spot. Initially, there was a cradle that attached to the phone, or that the phone "cradled” in, that created the WiFi signal.
2. What was the inspiration behind starting your company?
In 2006, the company realized that networking would eventually go from wired to all wireless. Cradlepoint become the first company to create a 4G LTE wireless business-grade router and will be the first to market with a 5G router.
3. What is your signature product and how does it work?
