Leading cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge provider, Cradlepoint has released the E100 5G Enterprise Router, specifically designed to support retail and small office applications.

The E100 5G combines 5G performance with modern security through Cradlepoint NetCloud Exchange. Integrated SD-WAN and zero trust deliver 5G SASE capabilities and enable IT teams to manage networks and security at scale with fewer staff.

The router enables reliable connectivity, while protecting the network and users from external threats. It gives IT teams confidence in deploying communications, IoT and point of sale (POS) devices in small and temporary sites.

With connect-and-go zero trust architecture, the E100 5G secures the WAN by enabling enterprises to replace VPNs with a more secure zero trust network with integrated and easy to configure failover for hybrid WAN or dual cellular locations.

“Historically, many of the connectivity capabilities that large enterprises, including retail and financial services organisations, need for their businesses have been unavailable or unaffordable for small footprint locations,” Cradlepoint chief marketing officer and Ericsson head of enterprise wireless solutions marketing, Donna Johnson said.

“With market-leading 5G connectivity, zero trust security, SD-WAN, and cloud management in a small form factor, IT managers can now scale to distributed locations with confidence—something that is increasingly necessary in the rapidly changing market we see today.”
