The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service with E300 Series Router is ideally suited for pop-up temporary locations, branches, stores, and restaurants. The all-in-one form factor includes full-featured routing, security, and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect branches to the Internet and critical applications without the need for extra hardware or complicated configurations. And the embedded LTE modem means that connectivity is always available from day 1 without waiting for a wired connection.

Ideal for Wireless WAN

For organizations moving to a Wireless WAN, the E300 offers the ability to pair LTE with a wired link and use LTE as a failover connection or a primary connection. For an all wireless WAN, the E300 offers Gigabit-class LTE performance, which can support the throughput needs of a small or medium-sized branch with the ability to add a second LTE connection to increase available bandwidth and reliability.

 

5G Ready for Upward Compatibility

The E300 Enterprise Branch Router is 5G Ready and can act as a controller for a Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapter (with added hardware). This capability ensures upward compatibility for 5G, while still allowing optimal placement of the 5G adapter. The unique capability of Cradlepoint to operate the adapter in captive mode means that the two separate, Ethernet-connected, appliances can be managed as a single entity. WAN interfaces, CPU, and captive modem mode are capable of supporting Cradlepoint 5G adapters. 5G speeds subject to maximum WAN throughput.

Cellular carriers and operators throughout the world may only require telecom industry certifications, like PTCRB or GCF, to operate on their
network. Some carriers require additional testing and approval, beyond telecom certifications, to operate on their network. A carrier listed in
the approvals section means Cradlepoint completed additional testing and acquired technical approval for that given carrier. Any carrier not
listed may not require additional testing or approval beyond telecom industry certifications to operate on their network.
