London, United Kingdom — Aug. 16, 2022 — Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network solutions, today announced NetCloud Exchange, an architectural extension of its NetCloud solution, to help lean IT organisations transform their business and amplify their 5G experience with advanced SD-WAN and Zero Trust capabilities. NetCloud Exchange is an intuitive, cloud-native solution built on policy-driven, zero-trust principles that delivers multiple SD-WAN and security services.
As business transformation continues to fuel increased cloud, mobility, and IoT adoption, WAN architectures have proven too limited and inflexible for securely connecting distributed enterprise sites, vehicles, remote employees, and devices. 5G is quickly emerging as an essential WAN infrastructure and will drive WAN expansion and evolution. However, these trends can produce a larger attack surface, unique, cloud-driven traffic patterns, and a greater number of connected endpoints.
Most network solutions today are designed for wired-only deployments. With the new NetCloud Exchange extension, NetCloud now offers new 5G and security-first services to support enterprise WAN transformation, including end-to-end secure connectivity, hybrid SD-WAN, and Zero Trust networking – all lifecycle-managed through a single-pane-of-glass.”
David Collins, product manager, Cradlepoint EMEA
The following new NetCloud Services will be delivered based on the NetCloud Exchange extension:
All services are delivered using the NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway — a scalable, resilient, software-based solution for private and cloud data centers that aggregates remote connections, provides flow-level visibility, and acts as the policy-enforcement point for the services it supports.
As organisations continue to undergo digital transformation, IT teams must evolve how they manage the network edge. Cradlepoint’s innovation in Wireless WAN is enabling enterprises to deploy 5G with the management and security functions needed to scale.”
Rohit Mehra, group vice president, network and telecom infrastructure, IDC
NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect and NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway are available immediately while other solutions will be available in the fourth quarter of 2022.
