5G For Business

We’ve witnessed 4G LTE transform business models, companies, and entire industries. By comparison, 5G is in a league of its own. Consumers see 5G as a faster smartphone or internet broadband experience. However, businesses view it as a game changer, making any 5G for business network mission-critical.

Rev up existing and enable new applications

Fiber Fast, Wireless Flexible

Historically, networks require tradeoffs between flexibility and performance. Wireless connections offer tremendous flexibility but can't match the performance of fiber links. 5G eliminates this tradeoff, providing fiber-fast connections with wireless flexibility to rev up existing applications while enabling new innovative and immersive ones.

Coming Soon: 5G for Business

Cradlepoint announced the industry’s first and most comprehensive “5G for Business” product portfolio in Q1 2020 with availability starting mid-year. It supports all 5G bands and the complete management lifecycle.


Deep Carrier Collaboration

Today’s 5G standard has a few implementation options, some wet paint, and several gaps. To ensure a superior enterprise experience, Cradlepoint works closely with major carriers to test and tune its solutions to their 5G networks.


No 5G Signal, No Problem

Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapters utilize the latest 5G chipset technology with LTE/Gigabit-Class LTE fallback built-in. Since both modems are always connected, loss of the 5G signal doesn’t mean loss of the connection.


Strike Up All The Bands

The first Cradlepoint 5G solution to ship will be the W2000 Wideband Adapter, which supports low-to-mid-band 5G (Sub-6). We announced a future W4000 model designed to support high-band 5G (mmWave).


Two Forms Follow Function

Our new 5G Wideband Adapters will come in two forms: an indoor unit (IDU) and outdoor unit (ODU). With these two forms, we can functionally support everything from LTE-like low-band to line-of-sight millimeter wave.


Better Together, Works Apart

The 5G Wideband Adapter is designed to work with any third-party router. When paired with a Cradlepoint 5G-capable router, customers get a fully integrated lifecycle management experience and optimized performance.

Introducing Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapters

In February 2020, Cradlepoint announced the world’s first comprehensive portfolio of 5G wireless edge solutions for business, with availability starting in mid-year.

Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapters combine NetCloud Service capabilities with a clean-sheet-of-paper design to address critical network imperatives and provide customers with a graceful pathway to 5G.
