A recent “IDC Worldwide Channels and Alliances 2022 Predictions” webinar spoke to the increasing importance of alliances and partner ecosystems. As one presenter succinctly stated, “Alliances is one of the most undervalued areas, and yet it does so much.” Delivering new business value today requires expanding one’s ecosystem. It requires working together to reduce friction and customer frustrations, to deliver the best possible outcomes.
All of us take technology for granted. While things may seem easy and seamless — tapping your credit card on a POS machine or accessing data whenever and wherever we want — the reality is that behind every interaction and every connection is not one vendor but many. The speed of today’s digital transformation makes it impossible for any one vendor to “go it alone.” Success relies on focusing on one’s core competency and partnering with best-of-breed vendors to deliver superior solutions.
Technology Alliance Partner Program
Cradlepoint’s ecosystem of technology partnerships expands your networking options for fixed and temporary sites, vehicles, and IoT. It builds on our industry-leading LTE and 5G Wireless WAN with best of breed security, networking, IoT, cloud, and mobile solutions. Each solution is integrated and pretested with our NetCloud Service so you can deploy with ease and confidence.
Featured below are three partners who are showcasing their solutions at our 2022 Americas Partner Summit. While focused on different areas — enterprise IoT, industrial IoT, and networking — their commonality is how they can enhance your Cradlepoint Wireless WAN infrastructure and bring supplemental value to your business.
Rigado (Enterprise IoT)
Streamlining the operation of commercial spaces — whether in a restaurant, retail store, or office building — has become a key focus area for companies across all industries. By reducing or even eliminating the time their staff needs to spend monitoring and tracking operational data such as space utilization, food safety, or equipment use, companies can improve operating margins and free up teams to focus on serving customers and improving workplace productivity.
Rigado’s Edge Connect platform is connected by Cradlepoint and utilizes an open IoT architecture with plug-and-play cameras, applications, sensors, and devices to provide critical IoT solutions for smart buildings, workplaces, logistics, and retail environments. The joint solution dramatically reduces total cost of ownership, simplifies operation and management, and is affordable for companies of all sizes.
Telit (Industrial IoT)
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is revolutionizing manufacturing. Connecting assets throughout the industrial value chain provides complete operational visibility to allow for real-time decision making and improved levels of quality and efficiency as well as new service opportunities. Manufacturers require the ability to connect a wide range of PLCs, robots, CNCs, torque tools, sensors etc. from multiple manufacturers to a wide range of enterprise systems. As manufacturing environments increasingly become mobile, interworking with LTE and 5G WWAN solutions is required.
Cradlepoint and Telit enable integrated IoT systems management. Telit deviceWISE®, an industrial IoT integration and enablement solution, runs on a Docker container on Cradlepoint LTE/5G routers, allowing industrial IoT assets to be managed without custom code.
Extreme Networks (Networking)
Many businesses are looking to augment their enterprise LAN network with LTE and 5G Wireless WAN to enhance business resiliency and agility. Extreme and Cradlepoint deliver a full-stack LAN/WAN solution that encompasses the latest networking innovations, including 5G, Wi-Fi 6/6E, and fabric networking. The result is a more agile, resilient, and secure network that unlocks the power of LTE and 5G to provide boundless reach, nonstop reliability, and real-time agility.
