CradlePoint, the global leader in 3G/4G wireless networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced the delivery and support of the CradlePoint COR and ARC networking solutions throughout Europe and Canada.
With the expansion of LTE networks, the appetite for high bandwidth solutions across vertical market segments has accelerated growth at an exponential rate. CradlePoint is capitalising on its market leadership and ability to deliver LTE connectivity as enterprises look to deploy customer facing and operational applications requiring flexible, high-bandwidth networks that can be managed centrally to maximize uptime and improve productivity.
“CradlePoint solutions are in demand across a variety of market segments that are looking at 4G LTE to change the way in which data is used,” said Sacha Kakad, managing director at Westbase Technology. “Today there is opportunity within energy, retail, finance, security, and transportation, as well as a number of other industries throughout the UK and Europe. CradlePoint has entered a market with a superior product that provides reliability and strong performance with centralised cloud-enabled network management.
CradlePoint’s solutions will be distributed directly into Europe through its earlier announced partnership with UK-based distributor, Westbase Technology. For Canada, CradlePoint will rely on three of its key distributors, including BlueStar, SYNNEX Corporation and the world’s largest wholesaler technology distributor, Ingram Micro Inc. Europe and Canada provide tremendous growth opportunities. The European market is predominately made up of mobile broadband networking solutions that are only compatible with 3G networks and do not offer the enterprise-grade performance, management, reliability, and LTE connectivity that CradlePoint’s solutions afford.
The CradlePoint COR and ARC networking solutions leverage 4G LTE for a variety of enterprise and M2M networking applications. U.S. customers include retail stores and restaurants, branch offices, kiosks, digital signage, and transportation providers including buses and taxis. Customers utilise the recently announced CradlePoint Enterprise Cloud Manager to easily configure, deploy, manage, and monitor on-premise network equipment in real-time from a central location, enabling significantly lower operating costs.
“With the expansion into Europe and Canada, we can better support our growing customer base that includes many multi-national brands,” said George Mulhern, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CradlePoint. “Our diverse customer base has found great success using LTE, and CradlePoint is changing the way these companies can connect, manage, and use wireless networks as their primary connection for everyday operations. CradlePoint’s early support of LTE has positioned it well as European and Canadian-based telecoms expand their support of LTE to keep pace with demand. We believe as more businesses look to the cloud to support their most critical applications and LTE availability continues to grow in Europe, the opportunity for CradlePoint is limitless.”
