Cradlepoint CBA850 Branch Cellular Router with NetCloud Management, Cat 4, 6, or 12 Modem

The CBA850 advanced LTE router from Cradlepoint, along with their NetCloud Branch Essentials plan, offers organizations reliable communications with up to Gigabit-Class LTE speed. The CBA850 serves as a primary connection to the Internet over the cellular network. Or, it provides a backup or secondary means of communication. If your primary or “wired” connection goes down, it will instantly failover to 4G LTE to keep your network running seamlessly.

With intuitive point-and-click cloud management, this solution is ideal for small and mid-sized businesses, branch offices, clinics, retailers, restaurants, and other operations requiring a reliable, secured Internet connection. By converting cellular to Ethernet, it’s also ideal for connecting remote systems like kiosks, point-of-sale, and digital signs to the cloud. The CBA850 incorporates an IP passthrough that monitors the WAN connection. Whenever a link failure is detected, the traffic automatically routes over the LTE connection.

The CBA850 is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual SIM slots with auto-carrier selection, Power over Ethernet (PoE), GPS, and out-of-band management. A choice of modem allows you to match your monthly cellular data usage to throughput. Of course, the CBA850 comes with full router functions, security, and network management.
