New Zealand owned and operated Snapper Network Distributors has announced a new distribution agreement and partnership with Idaho-based company Cradlepoint, to provide solutions across data, cloud, security and the evolving Internet of Things.
Richard Paul, Managing Director for SnapperNet Distributors, says Cradlepoint’s products will provide 3G/4G/LTE network solutions, and focus on Machine-to-Machine, transportation and the Internet-of-Things solutions.
“In the States, companies like American Apparel uses Cradlepoint's MBR series and NetCloud Manager for high-speed failover, cloud-based networking management and VPN support,” Paul says.
“Our partnership allows New Zealand customers for the first time to have access to Cradlepoint’s routers and other networking products.
“These products will help distributed enterprises improve operational efficiency and enhance customer experiences by delivering 4G LTE networking solutions engineered to perform exactly as needed.
“This teaming up with Cradlepoint helps us to complete our range in this space - it gives us tools that we can offer integrators for specific market segments like transport, retail (POS) and health.”
Cradlepoint plays in three key segments - networking, where its products and services compete with the likes of Cisco and Juniper; wireless, competing with Aruba, Ruckus, Motorola and Aerohive; and the Internet-of-Things/M2M market.
