Customer Success: South Carolina Parks, Rec. & Tourism
Watch this short two minute video on the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism (SCPRT). They were currently in the process of reimagining the state’s welcome centers and expanding its WiFi offerings in South Carolina state parks. SCPRT is using Cradlepoint solutions in its welcome center counters and significantly expanded the availability of public WiFi in state parks across the state. They also use Enterprise Cloud Manager to configure, monitor, and manage its growing network.

Enterprises around the world are embracing cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to decrease complexity while increasing business agility, empowering their distributed workforces, and gaining operational insights. A growing amount of critical enterprise network traffic is moving off private IP networks and on to the public Internet via wired and wireless broadband. At the same time, workforces are becoming more and more geographically distributed.
The effect is that the LAN is being replaced by the WAN—people, places, and things require secure, fast and reliable connectivity no matter their location—and businesses face challenges meeting these increasingly complex demands using legacy solutions.
Cradlepoint’s NetCloud platform combines our Edge software and cloud services (Enterprise Cloud Manager) with SDN, NFV, SD-WAN and a host of other technologies to provide a converged, next-generation WAN with an embedded security perimeter that addresses this new era of “Interprise” broadband networks.
Join us for a webinar to learn more about Cradlepoint NetCloud and NetCloud Engine to improve productivity, reduce costs, and enhance the intelligence of your network and business operations.
Cradlepoint recently announced that first responders will now be able to seamlessly transition to the Band 14 National Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) developed by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) and meet the mandates of the federal government.
Cradlepoint’s new MC400L2 modem is the first solution with a full range of applications needed to coordinate emergency response efforts across public and private first responder networks. It is the first Band 14 solution that—when integrated with the AER product family—features full Unified Threat Management (UTM) security.
Benefits of the new release include: routers can be deployed now and upgraded later when FirstNet is available; maximum reliability when paired with commercial LTE service; Ethernet WAN, or WiFi as WAN; and faster speeds with the Category 4 modem for AER, ARC, and COR product families.
Additionally, Cradlepoint also announced new Category 4 modems for the AER, ARC, and compatible COR series products. This new modem will perform at higher speeds, support additional bands, and take advantage of carrier network improvements. The new modem will be embedded in the AER1600 and available as an accessory MC400 modem for the rest of the AER and ARC products, as well as a second-modem accessory for the COR products with a dock.
Join us for this webinar to learn more about Cradlepoint's new modem products for North America.
With more E-rate options and a wider variety of education technologies than ever before, K-12 schools and districts are innovatively leveraging cloud-based wired and wireless WAN solutions. As a result, they are reducing costs, man-hours, network complexity, and downtime associated with their networks.
Districts are discovering that their primary, failover, and mobile networking needs require flexible, purpose-built platforms and cloud management tools that are able to create, complement, augment, and extend connectivity quickly and securely.
Join our webinar at 11 a.m. PDT/2 p.m. EDT on October 13 to envision what’s possible for your K-12 network infrastructure through cloud-managed wired and wireless solutions.

Until recently there has been very little fundamental innovation in terms of how WANs are designed and implemented. Driven by the development of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), that is changing.
Introducing your next WAN — software-defined, LTE-based, and designed with security in mind for today’s connected enterprise. This new combination reduces complexity and enables IT and network teams to deploy cloud-based networks in minutes to connect distributed people, places, and things — anywhere.
Join us for a webinar to learn how you can make the public Internet your private network to augment, complement, extend, or replace legacy network infrastructure without giving up visibility, security, and control.
In state and local government, IT professionals are being asked to do more with less. More applications, security, management capabilities, users, locations, connected devices, and smart technology. Less money, time, man-hours, network complexity, and downtime.
In many instances, public sector agencies and organizations are discovering essential efficiency improvements through software-defined, cloud-managed solutions. With the convergence of wired and wireless WAN, connecting people, places, and things is easier than ever.
Join our webinar at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT on Sept. 15, 2016, for an intriguing look at government use cases for LTE, software-defined networks, and remote cloud management.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is deployed one of two ways: on-premises or cloud. Each deployment strategy has its pluses and minuses — with variables including features, upfront costs and total cost of ownership, existing infrastructure, and scalability.
VoIP services traverse the WAN and are subject to overall WAN bandwidth. If adequate WAN resources are not available, call quality degradation can result. That’s why more and more IT professionals are asking this question: “How would using an LTE WAN for failover or primary connectivity impact VoIP services in our network?”
Join our webinar at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT on Sept. 8, 2016, to learn the best practices and considerations for deploying VoIP on an LTE network.
We also will discuss:
— VoIP on an LTE network vs. VoLTE
— VoIP on LTE for failover or primary connectivity
— VoIP network conditions
— LTE vs. 3G/2G
— Best practices
— Quality of Service (QoS)
— Cradlepoint field testing
Cradlepoint announced it is delivering an innovative Router Software Development Kit (SDK) and extensibility platform to enable enterprises to customize Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to meet their specific business needs, applications, and network requirements.
With the new Router SDK and extensibility platform, enterprises can now build and customize more intelligent, application-specific solutions on top of Cradlepoint’s latest COR IBR routers. Developers and enterprise customers can now create tailored M2M and IoT applications on top of Cradlepoint Solution Platforms that can precisely address their specific business needs.
The extensibility platform launches in conjunction with new additions to Cradlepoint’s COR family of M2M-IoT and in-vehicle routers — the COR IBR600B and COR IBR650B. The new routers include embedded Cat4 modems that will perform at higher speeds and support additional bands. They also support auto-carrier selection that automatically connects to the U.S. wireless carrier associated with the SIM card installed.
The new routers support the COR Extensibility Dock that enables dual modems, extra Ethernet ports, and support for a third party expansion card, as well as, Cradlepoint’s SDK and extensibility platform that enable customers, partners, and third parties to write custom scripts and then securely push those scripts down to the router fleet for distributed computing at the Networks Edge.
This year on Black Friday and beyond, retailers will use more technology and applications — in a more mobile environment — than ever before. The biggest challenge is keeping all those applications — everything from gift card kiosks and customer WiFi, to Point-of-Sale and inventory devices — always connected and always protected.
