A collaboration between 5G and LTE wireless networking specialist Cradlepoint and networking specialist Extreme Networks is intended to help enterprises deliver 5G to campus networks and securely extend the network to remote locations over a wireless wide area network.

5G wireless wide area network (WWAN) connectivity helps keep remote locations secure and connected, so 5G is being increasingly integrated with existing Wi-Fi networks.

Cradlepoint and Extreme Networks say they can make it easy to deploy such wireless networks at scale, for instance for IoT device deployments.

The joint solution includes diverse path high-availability with both failover and day-one connectivity, and the ability to simply extend the Extreme's Fabric Connect to remote locations over the WWAN for improved automation and security, officials said.

"Businesses are looking to wireless WAN using 5G and cellular technologies to both increase operational efficiency and improve the customer experience," said Cradlepoint senior vice president of marketing Donna Johnson.

"At the same time, they are looking to expand the reliability and agility of their remote location leveraging their WiFi networks. Working with Extreme, we're able to bring these two wireless worlds together in a secure and automated way – improving site uptime and agility while reducing the stain on IT resources".

Extreme Networks senior director of business development Daren Dulac said "The future of networking lies in the convergence and complementary nature of Wi-Fi networks and 5G WANs.

"Customers want simple, secure solutions that are easy to manage across an infinite number of remote locations while maintaining the same quality of user experience everywhere. Through this partnership, we're able to offer a connectivity solution that will help enterprises thrive in an increasingly distributed world."
