Telstra selects Cradlepoint as 5G Solution for Enterprise Wireless service

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent announcement, Cradlepoint, a leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless edge solutions, made public its comprehensive portfolio of 5G solutions, powered by the company’s NetCloud Service and built to meet the business imperatives of availability, interoperability, security, and manageability. The new portfolio of “5G for Business” solutions is designed to enable customers to deploy fast and reliable wireless business internet and wide-area networks (WANs), the company said.

Telstra Selects Cradlepoint for Enterprise Wireless service
Telstra is the launch partner for the first Cradlepoint 5G solution to be delivered to the market — the W2000-Series 5G Wideband Adapter, which is the 5G wireless edge solution for Telstra’s Enterprise Wireless service. Customer trials reportedly are scheduled to begin in April 2020.

“Our pursuit of delivering the best 5G solution available to Australian businesses has led us to Cradlepoint’s NetCloud and the new W2000 Series 5G Wireless Adapters,” said Andrew Stormont, Mobility Executive, Telstra. “We know the networking needs of our business and enterprise customers are very different from consumers’, and this point was a determining factor in our decision to partner with Cradlepoint for our Enterprise Wireless 5G solution. Their comprehensive approach, combined with Telstra network leadership and expertise, makes it easy for business customers to get up and running on 5G while providing full powerful management tools.” 

By combining its NetCloud platform with a clean-sheet-of-paper design for its new 5G modems and antenna systems, Cradlepoint has made itself the first provider in the industry to address the business imperatives of network availability, security, and manageability and provide business customers with a pathway to 5G. The company outlined its specific capabilities, including: combining LTE, Gigabit-Class LTE and 5G in a single wireless WAN; support for all variants of 5G – low-band and mid-band (Sub-6Ghz) and high-band (millimeter wave) – across major wireless operators; interoperability with existing customer SD-WAN and router infrastructures; and delivering the entire network management lifecycle – from ease of deployment to simplified operations and troubleshooting.

“Our new NetCloud-powered portfolio of 5G wireless edge solutions represents another industry first for Cradlepoint,” said George Mulhern, chairman and CEO, Cradlepoint. “We are excited to have Telstra – Australia’s leading mobile operator – as our worldwide launch partner for our new W2000-Series 5G Wideband Adapter. They share our strong belief that business customers are looking to embrace 5G to enable new and disruptive business applications and capabilities, but not at the cost of impaired network availability, security, and manageability.”
