DENVER, CO, Big 5G Event — August 30, 2021 — Cradlepoint¸ the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, today has expanded its AT&T 5G for Enterprise solutions with the certification of its outdoor W4005 Wideband Adapter for millimeter wave (high-band) connections on the AT&T 5G+ network. The W4005 joins the portfolio of 5G for Enterprise solutions for branch and mobile use cases announced in May 2021. The AT&T 5G+ network is expected to cover parts of over 40 cities and 40 venues by the end of this year.

The new AT&T 5G+ certification cements the Cradlepoint and AT&T combined network offerings as one of the most comprehensive portfolio of 5G solutions in the U.S. that bring the benefits of 5G+ to the business-critical use cases — all while helping to meet I.T. organizations' stringent security and management requirements. The new solution combines Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service and renown Cellular Intelligence in a second-generation ruggedized outdoor unit that is specifically engineered to reliably receive super-fast, millimeter wave 5G signals.
