Global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, Cradlepoint has released the industry’s first 5G-optimised, all-in-one wireless edge router for enterprise branch deployment, the Cradlepoint E3000 Series.

Ideal for branch-oriented industry sectors that require primary wireless connections with robust WAN and LAN networking and security capabilities, the E300 Series is suitable for retail stores, restaurants, healthcare clinics, financial services, construction sites, and field service offices.

With a design that optimises performance and investment protection, customers can deploy a wireless wide-area network (Wireless WAN) using the latest LTE and Wi-Fi technology and upgrade to 5G in the future.

The all-in-one design provides a mid-sized, enterprise-class solution with an embedded Gigabit-Class LTE modem, integrated Wi-Fi 6, gigabit Ethernet ports for WAN/LAN connectivity, and expansion slots accomodate a secondary LTE modem module today with 5G modem and Bluetooth 5.0 modules slated for later in 2020.

Packaged as part of the Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service, the E3000 Series utilises the latest multi-core, wireless system-on-chip technology.

Cradlepoint chief marketing officer, Todd Krautkremer said the company is committed to being the first and best choice for enterprise Wireless WAN and 5G solutions.

“We believe, as do many of our customers and partners, that Wireless WAN is the next big networking wave, driven by the emergence of 5G. The Cradlepoint E3000 Series, powered by NetCloud, is the latest addition to our next-generation of 5G-capable solutions, its design provides customers with no-compromise Gigabit-Class LTE performance and the most paths to a 5G future.”

The Cradlepoint NetCloud Service for Enterprise Branch with the new E3000 Series Router will be available in July 2020, and follows the launch of the W-Series 5G Wideband Adapter in February – the first 5G solution purpose-built for enterprise.
