Cradlepoint’s new R1900 Ruggedised 5G Edge Router is the first product to utilise Cradlepoint’s second-generation 5G architecture, supports nationwide coverage (low-band) and capacity (mid-band) networks at speeds up to 1Gbps as well as gigabit LTE. Powered by the Cradlepoint NetCloud Service, the R1900 delivers full 5G performance, enterprise-class security and SASE support, IoT connectivity with Bluetooth, and edge computing for Microsoft Azure IoT Central or AWS Greengrass environments.
According to a recent IDC report, the market for enterprise LTE and 5G routers is exploding and forecast to reach close to $3B by 2024. As 5G proliferates, enterprise and public sector organisations will take advantage of secure and fibre-fast 5G mobile networks to enable immersive applications for field force productivity and enhanced customer experiences.
The R1900 is the first product to launch using its second-generation 5G architecture – most network vendors have not shipped their first 5G product. The company’s early 5G and long-standing mobile and IoT experience helped create a global mobile platform that supports the fibre-fast speeds and breadth of use cases enabled by 5G worldwide.
“While others view 5G as a simple add-on to existing products, Cradlepoint has taken a clean-sheet-of-paper approach with the R1900,” states James Bristow, SVP EMEA at Cradlepoint. “5G is more than just a faster pipe – it enables transformative applications that help mobile workforces be safer and more productive while delivering better customer experiences. However, achieving these benefits requires a 5G mobile router that is up to the task from a reliability, performance, connectivity, security, and edge computing standpoint, and the R1900 with NetCloud delivers on all of these attributes.”
