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 5G as a game-changing technology that can help streamline operations while driving new revenue streams.

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.

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.

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.
