The Cradlepoint E300 is said to be suitable for high-traffic pop-up sites, including quarantine centres, small clinics, and treatment facilities constructed in response to COVID-19; distributed voting sites; traditional enterprise branch sites where wireless WAN connectivity is required; and even individual work-from-home situations involving sensitive data or communications.
The E300 series is provisioned, controlled and managed by the Cradlepoint NetCloud Service.
It handles SD-WAN functionality over Gigabit-class wired and cellular broadband networks and supports dual Gigabit-class LTE modems.
The device can also act as a controller for the 5G wideband adapter that Cradlepoint announced recently.
Other features include unified edge security with VPN, firewall, IPS/IDS and internet content filtering.
"We are thankful that our wireless network solutions are playing a role in a wide range of COVID-19 emergency pop-up sites for healthcare, public safety, and other frontline responder use cases," said Cradlepoint chief marketing officer Todd Krautkremer.
"As the response moves from testing to treatment, more powerful pop-up and remote access networks will be required to support higher-traffic volumes, patient internet access, enterprise-class security, and non-stop availability. The new E300 Series, part of our NetCloud Service, is ideally suited to address these heightened requirements with the rapid, zero-touch deployment and centralised management that IT teams need today."
The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Service for Branch with the new E300 series router is available immediately.
