Wireless solutions built to keep firefighters safe and efficient when the heat is on

For firefighters on the frontlines, wireless connectivity is a lifeline. They rely on fast and always-on access to critical applications and data to perform their mission, whether in a vehicle, station, or on-scene.

Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service and wireless routers unlock the power of LTE and 5G — including nationwide public safety networks — for reliable connections to MDTs, connected gear, sensors, and beyond. Cradlepoint helps firefighters safely and efficiently protect lives and property, especially when the heat is on.


One network for everything

Purpose-built wireless routers designed to network vehicles, apparatuses, station houses, command centers, and connected devices and gear — all from one platform using the most advanced LTE technology available.


Always connected, fully certified

Connect to multiple cellular networks at the same time, including nationwide public safety networks that provide first responders with priority and pre-emption when they need it most — all through a single, highly ruggedized router.


Built to take the heat (and cold)

Cradlepoint wireless routers are tough, tested, and trusted. They’re engineered for long life and built to take the extreme temperatures, humidity, shocks, vibrations, dust, and occasional water splash that comes with the territory.


Manage like a pro, minus the pro

Fire departments can’t always afford network pros. Easy-to-use cloud management lets network novices centrally manage a Cradlepoint network like a pro — reducing vehicle garage visits and downtime.


Lives depend on location data

Accurate location data is essential — lives often depend on it. Precision, vehicle-integrated GPS provides location-based data for computer-aided dispatch and fleet management applications and helps locate firefighters in need.


Protect and secure public data

To fully Protect & Serve the public, you need to protect and secure public data. Cradlepoint provides enterprise-grade network security capabilities to ensure data remains protected and HIPAA compliant.
