Today’s IoT topology is a hodge-podge of standards, communication mechanisms, software, and hardware.
Look at a typical home IoT environment that requires a unique hub for every IoT device. This results in complexity and interoperability challenges for widespread adoption and support. Sensors will continue to reduce in size, power, and cost but will remain constrained as to how many features one can bind into a small compute device. Communication standards at the Edge range from WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Zwave, Thread, ANT, and the list is growing. What is needed are smarter Edge devices that provide the services of communication routing, security, aggregation, and resiliency.
Join this webcast with Perry Lea, Principal Architect and IoT Strategist, for insight into the “wild west” of IoT interoperability, recommendations and predictions on how smart gateways will evolve in the near future.

Digital transformation is driving the increased deployment of cloud-based applications, a mobile workforce, and IoT. A new WAN architecture is required to support this digital transformation and deliver reliable, secure connectivity to people, places, and things.
In a live webinar on May 24, 2017, Lee Doyle of Doyle Research and Todd Krautkremer of Cradlepoint will discuss the technologies enabling the next-generation WAN, including SD-WAN, Software-Defined Perimeter (SD-P), and LTE.

With 5G rapidly climbing the hype cycle toward the peak of inflated expectations, many organizations are asking the same question: “Where does 5G stand today, and how long before it can help my business?”
Carriers in the U.S. are not only talking about it, but claiming their trials are ongoing and deployments are coming soon — in many cases, years earlier than had been thought possible. In reality, 5G has a limited, powerful use case today, but can reach its exceptional potential within the next couple years.
At 11am PT / 2pm ET on April 26, 2017, join Cradlepoint’s David Rush and Ken Rehbehn of 451 Research to explore the 5G reality today and how 5G can help people and businesses in 2018 and beyond.
Cradlepoint is the global leader in cloud-based network solutions for connecting people, places, and things over wired and wireless broadband.
In healthcare, network administrators and IT teams face a unique array of ongoing challenges. Always-on connectivity is more than just mission-critical; it’s about saving lives. Care services must extend beyond fixed locations and far into the field. Also, healthcare practitioners need access to sensitive patient data anytime, anywhere — and security breaches are unacceptable.
From primary connections at fixed locations to temporary networks, in-vehicle applications and the Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT), healthcare organizations are looking for purpose-built, cloud-managed solutions that foster HIPAA Compliance and hardware, complexity, man-hours, and costs.
At 9am PT / 12pm ET on April 12, 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Roger Billings to explore the many ways healthcare organizations are joining data, cloud, security, and the evolving IoT with intelligent networking to stay always connected and secure.

The new features in Firmware 6.3:
— Smart WAN Selection (SWANS): Smart, automated failover when primary connection degrades
— Automatic Quality of Service (Auto-QoS): Optimizes real-time (voice and video) application experience when network traffic congestion occurs
— IKEv2 Support: Enhanced authentication with X.509 certificates, improved encryption policies and security, and mobility support
— Enhanced Supportability Features: Better IPsec status and logging, Firewall Hit Counter, Support Page
Enhancements to the Extensibility Platform offering with SDK-Extensible UI:
— Build in configuration or status for your SDK application
— Leverage existing web server functionality of the router
— Customize landing pages
Enhancements to Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) with Client Analytics:

As 2017 takes shape, network administrators and security specialists face an ever-expanding slate of hacker tricks and attempted breaches — tied in part to the rapid increase of workforce mobility, the Internet of Things, network on-ramps, and connected everything.
Join Cradlepoint Chief Security Officer Kent Woodruff to explore how organizations are using software-defined, cloud-based solutions to reduce complexity and protect their most critical data.
There’s no way around it: Setting up and maintaining traditional VPNs for remote access requires extensive time, energy and resources. Configuring, managing, and troubleshooting devices and applications located at the data center in headquarters and in each end device is one of the most complex and laborious aspects of network administration — especially with increased workforce mobility and IoT.
With a next-generation Virtual Cloud Network (VCN), configuration, management, and security policies are streamlined and handled in the cloud. This enables rapid deployment, reduces operational expenses and completely integrates with your existing infrastructure.
At 9am PT / 12pm ET on March 1 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Bryan Embrey to explore how resilient, redundant, secure, and scalable VCNs leverage software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization technologies to reduce complexity, hardware, and IT man-hours.
In retail, the rapid adoption of omnichannel services, automation, digitization, IoT and mobile devices, and cloud-based applications has rendered Internet and downtime unacceptable. From helping customers to handling back-office duties, retail staff need 24/7 connectivity to do their jobs effectively.
Retail IT professionals need flexibility and numerous options for providing Internet failover, router redundancy, and business continuity in a variety of locations and circumstances.
At 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on Feb. 15, 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Landon Reese to explore the best options for failover in retail, as enterprises look to improve the customer experience and save time, money, and man-hours.

Today the Internet is becoming the new corporate network — the Internet enterprise, or the “Interprise.” This new paradigm is gaining traction because of three major technology shifts: cloud, workforce mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
With so many organizations looking to partially or even fully put their network architecture in the cloud, the less complex you can make the move, the better. The “Interprise” is now an essential tool for network administrators, IT professionals, and corporate employees.
At 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on Jan. 25, 2017, join Cradlepoint’s Todd Krautkremer for a presentation and discussion about leveraging the Internet and virtual technologies to securely extend the traditional enterprise network — and how Cradlepoint NetCloud can help.
In the year 2017, it’s amazing what’s possible. With Network-as-a-Service, anyone — even your CFO — can create a secure Virtual Cloud Network in 10 minutes or less. When it comes to reducing man-hours, hardware and complexity, this is what they call a “game-changer.”
Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine provides a streamlined process to deploy cloud-based networks in minutes to connect people, places, and things anywhere. You can make the public Internet your private network without giving up visibility, security, and control.
At 9 a.m. PST / 12 p.m. EST on Jan. 12, 2017, join Cradlepoint Global Solutions Architect Roger Billings and CFO Val Heusinkveld to watch exactly how easy it is to set up a Virtual Cloud Network in 10 minutes or less.
With the rapid growth of mobile devices, cloud-based applications, credit card purchases, and the Internet of Things in the distributed enterprise, maintaining network security is more difficult, and more important, than ever before.
Data breaches come in all shapes and sizes, and with increasing prevalence. From passwords to phishing, educating a company’s staff early and often is one of the most effective ways to mitigate cyber security risks.
To help protect customers and companies, Join Cradlepoint’s Chief Security Officer for this webinar to review and discuss some of the best practices for mitigating network security risks.
Your next WAN is software-defined, delivered as a service, and designed with security in mind for today’s connected enterprise.
Through the Cradlepoint NetCloud platform, NetCloud Engine enables IT and network teams to deploy cloud-based networks in minutes to connect people, places, and things anywhere. You can make the public Internet your private network without giving up visibility, security, and control.
Join us for a live demo webinar at 9am PST / 12pm EST on November 17, 2016, to explore how to navigate and maximize NetCloud Engine for increased cost savings and reduced complexity across your organization’s rapidly expanding networks.
