Expereo Achieves Cradlepoint 5G for Enterprise Branch SpecializationOctober 26, 2021
The world’s leading provider of Global Internet, Cloud Access Optimization, SASE and SD-WAN services, Expereo, is proud to announce today that it has achieved 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialization from Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions. The 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialization identifies and recognizes partner organizations that are leaders in positioning and selling Cradlepoint’s 5G for business solutions by meeting a series of sales, technical, and business proficiency criteria.
By receiving the specialization, Expereo will support Cradlepoint’s efforts of selling the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of 5G solutions to meet the business imperatives of availability, interoperability, security, and manageability.
By leveraging Cradlepoint’s Netcloud solution, Expereo delivers portable network connections that can be used as primary, failover or underlay links. Having no physical transmission medium makes deployment easy with just a 4G/5G-enabled router and ready to use data SIM card(s) from Mobile Operators. This allows backup facilities or temporary offices to instantly connect to the internet and guarantees corporate network connection for when operations are disrupted as a result of disasters or contingency planning. Mobile Broadband can also be used to improve redundancy on SD-WAN and optimize application performance by adding more choice to the underlay, further diversifying current MPLS and Internet components within the SD-WAN environment.
“Being recognized as a 5G Enterprise Branch specialization showcases Expereo’s commitment to using the best-of-breed technology as part of its service stack, as well as getting our customer path to 5G for business”, explains Catherine Lee, Director Service Development at Expereo . “Our customers get the most advanced mobile endpoint equipment there is, access to extra-mile support, and the assurance that the products and services we jointly provide with Cradlepoint will meet the needs enterprise network”, she continues.
By combining its NetCloud platform with a clean-sheet-of-paper design for its new 5G modems and antenna systems, Cradlepoint is the first to deliver comprehensive 5G solutions for business.
