BOISE, Idaho and Indianapolis — April 19, 2018 — Cradlepoint, a leader in first responder network solutions, announced today that they will sponsor the AT&T IoT Civic Hackathon in Indianapolis on April 20. The third annual IoT Civic Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program, invites developers, designers, students and technologists from all over Indiana to build mobile applications and hardware solutions to help better their state or community.
Cradlepoint will introduce new technologies and hardware solutions to first responders and application developers, as well as encourage students to develop apps and allow them to test the security and functionality of the networks.
“Demand is exploding on our platform for first responders,” said Bill Soards, President AT&T Indiana. “With Cradlepoint’s Network Solutions Packages, our users can access mission-critical applications and the Internet from anywhere. They are proving themselves as a top choice for first responders and organizations that depend on field forces and mobile networks.”
The newly announced NetCloud Solution Packages for Mobile users will be on display. They bring the benefits of software-defined wide-area networking (WAN) to first responders, transit operators, and other field force and fleet-based organizations that rely on simple-to-manage, reliable, and secure in-vehicle and mobile networks with always-on 4G LTE connectivity.
“Cradlepoint is gaining ground as a trusted leader in providing mission-critical connectivity to the nation’s first responders,” said Jonathon Fischer, VP of Business Development, Cradlepoint. “A priority for Cradlepoint is working closely to meet or exceed the performance and security requirements of FirstNet and keeping first responders connected, safe and focused on the job at hand.”
