ARC MBR1400

Wireless WAN Connectivity

The Cradlepoint ARC MBR1400 Series routers enable easy-to-install wireless connectivity in fixed-business locations. Ideal for distributed enterprises such as branch offices, retail POS locations, restaurants, and small businesses, the MBR1400 provides wired Ethernet and 3G/4G wireless WAN connectivity to keep your business up and running.

 

Description

Bussiness Continuity

As businesses increasingly depend on cloud computing and remote applications, reliable Internet connectivity becomes mission-critical for business success. Cradlepoint’s integrated business series routers combine power and flexibility with an embedded business-grade wireless WAN modem for a fully-integrated business continuity solution (non-integrated option available).

Enterprise Performance

The ARC MBR1400 Series routers offer the latest in high-speed 3G/4G wireless connectivity to deliver the continuous uptime and bandwidth needed to support growth in cloud computing and ensure against loss of productivity and business opportunity.

Flexible

  • Use the integrated 3G/4G wireless modem as the primary connection or as failover from a wired connection (non-integrated option available).
  • Create secondary networks to simplify PCI compliance, video surveillance, digital signs, kiosks, etc.
  • Load balance across multiple wired and wireless connections when additional bandwidth is required.
  • Prepare for the future with IPv6.

Secure & Reliable

  • LAN connections are protected with advanced WiFi encryption, LAN Segmentation, and VLAN capabilities.
  • Main office access and POS transactions are protected by VPN capability and other security features to ensure your network stays secure.
  • Designed for PCI compliant network architectures.
  • Engineered for day-in, day-out 24/7 Internet connectivity, Cradlepoint integrated business series routers ensure reliable connections when you need them.

Extended Enterprise License

The Extended Enterprise License enables advanced routing and security features designed to increase productivity and business continuity, including…

  • Advanced Enterprise Routing: Allows users to set up complex network routing architectures including router redundancy – internally and externally. This allows the device to participate in more advanced routing ecosystems at the edge.
  • More Advanced VPN & Tunneling Protocols: Expands an enterprise’s ability to adopt and use different types of secure VPN tunneling.
  • NEMO (NEtwork MObility) / DMNR (Dynamic Mobile Network Routing from Verizon): Gives companies the ability to directly communicate and manage LAN-connected devices attached via Cradlepoint routers. This separates customer data from public traffic and provides a direct connection back to their internal IP network. Access and traffic flow is completely controlled by customers and allows them to manage LAN devices from a central location without the need for individual VPN connections for each LAN-connected device.
