CradlePoint Announces Enterprise-grade Network Solutions Certified on Sprint 4G Network

CradlePoint, a provider of cloud-managed 3G and 4G solutions, has announced that is the first company to receive certification on Sprint’s 4G network.

The company announced the certification at the National Retail Federation (NRF) conference in New York City.

“Sprint’s networks are well recognized throughout the industry as fast and reliable,” said George Mulhern, CEO at CradlePoint. “CradlePoint is helping enterprises across a wide spectrum of markets to utilize the speeds afforded by Sprint’s 4G LTE network to improve operations, achieve a lower cost of ownership and become more agile through the use of wireless technology. Our customers represent the largest brands in the retail market and we are proud to incorporate Sprint’s 4G LTE network into our overall offering.”

“Sprint is recognized throughout the industry for its high-quality broadband capabilities,” Ben Vos, vice president and general manager for Sprint’s Emerging Solutions Group, said. “Sprint’s delivery of 4G LTE empowers enterprise customers with the ability to deploy and manage both operational and customer-facing applications to improve business operations. CradlePoint is a leading solution provider in the wireless networking market and we look forward to helping our shared customers capitalize on the unique features of our joint solution.”

CradlePoint announced the certification at the National Retail Federation (NRF) conference in New York City. The company also announced its new advanced edge networking solution, the AER 2100. New features include increased bandwidth, network analytics, network management, enhanced security and PCI compliance. Developers can also use an open API to interface with other solutions a company is using.

The expansion of 4G networking is creating new opportunities in business. The increasing power of smartphones and tablets allows workers to get more done in more places outside the traditional office, allowing for a truly mobile workforce.

The support for 4G not only extends to human workers, but also to the growing M2M market. Customers can connect their M2M devices as carriers phase out the older 2G standard that many M2M customers rely on in favor of 3G and 4G networks. Sprint’s certification could give enterprise customers the confidence to deploy more 4G networks.
