Cradlepoint Solutions for M2M & IoT

Delivering in-the-machine reliability for in-the-field devices.

Reliable remote networking has never been simpler with WWAN networks. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT) have revolutionized the way many companies operate, dramatically reducing costs and improving accuracy by automating communications between central systems and remote devices – thus eliminating the need for people to intervene. That makes ease of use and reliability absolutely critical. If the technology doesn't go in quickly and easily, and perform as promised, the results can be quite costly.

M2M & IoT

Challenge: Keeping costs down and reliability up.

From automated transactions at DVD kiosks to remote energy-meter reading, success with M2M depends on easy low-cost installation and reliable day-to-day operations. The need for a wireless alternative. Sure, you can get a wired network into some M2M-IoT environments, but it’ll cost you, and in some places, like most retail kiosks, a wired connection isn’t even possible.

The need for a reliable solution: Just one incident of unreliability can undermine the whole cost advantage of M2M. Consider the cost to a retail installation if it goes offline and can’t process credit card transactions in real time.

The need to scale: 3G has its limits, especially as demand for M2M grows. To ensure long-term reliable service, carriers must be able to support more connections than 3G can currently handle.
