Cradlepoint Connects the Elements of IoT with SD-WAN and NetCloud

Cradlepoint has combined cellular routing, edge computing, cloud management and a partner application ‘sandbox’ to address emerging IoT opportunities. The vendor sits at the sweet spot between cellular connectivity for IoT devices that lack the option of physical connectivity, software-defined networking for policy-based routing, and application execution at the network edge for latency- and cost-sensitive applications. Cradlepoint’s portfolio presents an attractive platform for third-party software developers for edge analytics applications for multiple IoT use cases.
