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.
