The Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 is the Industry’s Most Rugged 4G LTE and WiFi enabled, Cloud-Managed In-Vehicle Networking Solution that Supports a Diverse Range of Applications
Birmingham, United Kingdom and Boise, Idaho 4 November 2014 – Cradlepoint, the global leader in secure, cloud-managed, 3G/4G/LTE networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced the immediate availability of the Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 for Europe. Ruggedised and compact, the COR IBR1100, which is E-Mark certified for in-vehicle equipment, is engineered to support and scale to the unique challenges of networking in industries such as transportation, oil and gas, utilities, and digital signage. Cradlepoint is demonstrating the COR IBR1100 as a cloud-managed, in-vehicle networking solution at the 2014 Euro Bus Expo (Stand #J15).
"The Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 is specifically designed to meet the rigors of the diverse and evolving applications in the transportation industry,” said Jim Lahey, Vice President and Managing Director of EMEA Operations at Cradlepoint. “Cradlepoint’s delivery of the COR IBR1100 capitalises on the growing demand for high bandwidth connectivity provided by 4G LTE, yet provides a fallback to 3G and 2G for seamless coverage. The Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 delivers reliable wireless connectivity that streamlines operational efficiency and improves the customer experience for Cradlepoint’s growing worldwide customer base."
Whether for a fleet of buses, coaches, heavy industrial equipment or emergency services vehicles; the use of wireless is growing as digital video systems, GPS, WiFi, credit card processing, and other cloud-based applications are relied upon to streamline operations and improve the customer experience. The Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 provides reliable and trusted wireless connectivity packaged in a compact and ruggedised case that endures extreme temperatures, high vibration, and wiring and electrical issues often found in vehicle deployments.
The COR IBR1100 series, like all Cradlepoint networking solutions, can be managed via NetCloud Manager – a cloud-based, real-time monitoring, management, and application solution for the entirety of the mobile data fleet. This platform allows fleet vehicle IT staff a zero-touch solution for network deployment, real-time configuration changes, firmware updates, troubleshooting, status monitoring, and alerting. Cloud management greatly reduces IT overhead for maintenance and significantly decreases the need for vehicles to be “out of service” for updates and network configuration.
Developed to withstand the challenges of the mass transit and in-vehicle networking markets, the Cradlepoint COR IBR1100’s high bandwidth and support of dual SIM card connectivity powers mission-critical applications with confidence. Using a modern-day bus fleet as an example, the COR IBR1100 allows buses to process payments, power bus driver tablets, manage interior and exterior digital signage, as well as deliver secure, segmented passenger and driver WiFi.
Specific differentiating features of the Cradlepoint COR IBR1100 include:
• Cloud management to support remote device monitoring and configuration
• Certified 3G/4G/LTE enterprise-grade internal modems with secure dual SIM card access
• Active GPS support to monitor fleets and track assets
• High performance WiFi with dual-band, dual concurrent 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
• Ruggedised for shock, vibrations, splash, and extreme temperatures (-30°C to +70°C)
• Wide DC voltage input range (9-36V DC)
• Ignition-sensing for power control
• Built-in transient and reverse polarity voltage protection
• Advanced security
The Cradlepoint COR family also includes the COR IBR600 series, which is relied upon for broad connectivity within demanding applications, including kiosks and digital signage. Cradlepoint's introduction of the COR IBR1100 further extends Cradlepoint’s market leadership in the machine-to-machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT), digital signage, and the connected transportation market with a cloud-managed solution that provides unparalleled monitoring, management, and security for a distributed deployment.
Today’s announcement builds upon Cradlepoint’s growing presence within EMEA. Cradlepoint expanded operations with the opening of a European Headquarters outside of London and the hiring of Jim Lahey.
Cradlepoint will be showcasing the Cradlepoint COR IBR1100LP3-EU at the Euro Bus Expo 4-6 November 2014 at the NEC Birmingham, in Birmingham, United Kingdom (Stand #J15).
