Cradlepoint Routers

It has worked great for our emergency vehicles and mobile remote dispatch stations. We did have them at other bases as secondary internet access in the event of failure of our fiber, but I have found that is not as useful as we thought it may have been. I have temporarily disabled cellular on those devices and just did not have the need for it.

I have been using some type of device like this for a very long time. We have and will maintain the need for this and have no immediate plan to make any change from Cradlepoint Routers. They have been very solid. These devices are a bit pricey, however worth the money as they always work and are reliable and save IT staff time.

Alternatives Considered

Cradlepoint Routers

I have not used a cellular router before this, so I can't compare.
I am however familiar with Cradlepoint as designing components for Emergency Responders to keep them connected and online while dispatched. That was a deciding factor for us. We wanted something heavy duty and reliable.

My journey in connecting with our product suppliers and reporting on daily sales relies on the great networking infrastructure created by this great tool. Integration of this platform with our applications was easy and it started operations immediately after configuration. Though I have not used similar networking for comparison, I have always gained suitable insights that have led to effective decision-making. It has the best data security features that have defined a secure working environment for all our staff.

  • For the price I don't think it effectively "wow'd" the client.
  • Throughput caused our network service to not be fully utilized.
