Todd Krautkremer, CMO, Cradlepoint
Today Cradlepoint announced a new subscription-based solution pricing model, the next step in its Elastic Edge(SM) strategy for software-driven and cloud-delivered wireless wide-area networks (WANs). The new model is based around a series of NetCloud Solution Packages, which simplify the way customers buy, deploy, manage, and evolve their Cradlepoint network, facilitating rapid deployment, time-to-value, and customer success. Each subscription-based solution package is tailored to specific market needs and combines NetCloud software and services, fit-for-purpose endpoint hardware, and comprehensive 24x7 support. The first NetCloud Solution Package to be launched is aimed at branch networks and provides 4G LTE-optimized SD-WAN functionality with extended wireless LAN coverage.
With NetCloud Solution Packages, Cradlepoint becomes a first-mover in transitioning enterprise WANs from a hardware-first approach, which is inflexible and resource-intensive, to a software-first, cloud-delivered subscription-based solution; reflecting the shift that is underway within IT infrastructure overall. Now customers can buy a complete Cradlepoint network solution and gain the benefits of simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and a shared interest in customer success.
“IT infrastructure is evolving from the buy-it-and-build-it approach, to consume-as-a-service”, said George Mulhern, Cradlepoint CEO. “Cradlepoint NetCloud Solution Packages acknowledge this trend and represent the next step in our Elastic Edge strategy for bringing the simplicity, elasticity, and economic advantages of software and cloud services to wireless wide-area networking — creating customer value across the entire lifecycle.”
