Cradlepoint Receives M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award for the Second Consecutive Year

Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Manager Fuels Rapid Growth and Adoption of the Machine-to-Machine Market

Boise, IDAHO – June 25, 2014 - Cradlepoint, the global leader in 4G LTE wireless networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced it has received the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award -- for the second consecutive year. Presented by M2M Evolution Magazine, the leading publication covering the M2M industry, Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Manager was recognized for its innovation and influence on the M2M market.

NetCloud Manager is the first platform of its kind to integrate cloud-based, secure management of enterprise network devices over wireless 3G/4G and LTE connections to improve business continuity, security, and enhance network intelligence at the edge. NetCloud Manager, when deployed within an IoT (Internet of Things) application, provides network administrators an easy-to-use interface on top of an application-based architecture and open API, both of which improves scalability and productivity.

“M2M has really evolved into the Internet of Things, and it continues to play an instrumental role in the growth of Cradlepoint here in the U.S. and abroad,” said George Mulhern, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Cradlepoint. “NetCloud Manager empowers network administrators with enhanced policy management to immediately access and monitor network devices using wireless connectivity with zero-touch deployments, seamless firmware updates and instant optimization. Today’s award recognizes the advancements that we have done to empower the IoT movement and streamline M2M networking.”

“Cradlepoint’s recognition for the second year in a row for two distinct and yet complementary products is representative of Cradlepoint’s understanding of the M2M market and commitment to leading its innovation,” said Rich Tehnrani, CEO at TMC. “It is my honor to congratulate Cradlepoint for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving M2M industry.” The winners of the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award will be published in the third quarter edition of M2M EVOLUTION MAGAZINE and on www.m2mevolution.com.
