Some networks involve heavy data, requiring the fastest speeds available. Others require fiber-optic connections for long transmission distances. In any situation, networking solutions must be reliable and secure. Cradlepoint addresses all of these needs with the 5G-ready CR4250 Branch Performance Router. This 10-port managed router forms a powerful hub to any business network.
When you need speed and power, having eight (8) separate Gigabit Power over Ethernet (PoE+) ports goes a long way. When that same router features two (2) massive 10G SFP slots, then you have access to maximum speed and distance, which will extend your network farther and more reliably than other options. The combination of extreme data and a PoE+ switch allows easy connections to security cameras, digital signage, POS systems, and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices critical to your business. For wireless connectivity, combine the CR4250 with a Cradlepoint AP22 WiFi access point or CBA850 LTE adapter to create an entire network for the branch site.
The NetCloud Service for Branch package improves productivity, reliability, and network security. It is a service-based platform that manages the CR4250 routing features from the cloud, making deployment effortless. Cloud management greatly simplifies branch networking, offering quick “zero-touch” deployment, and it optimizes your wired connections to provide reliable and efficient communication. Using a remote web browser, monitor, manage, and troubleshoot your network. NetCloud also allows you to set up your firewall and QoS, capture traffic analytics, and get real-time reports and alerts.
The Cradlepoint CR4520 is bundled with the NetCloud Solution Package for Branch Networks, an all-inclusive package comprised of services, hardware, and support. With each subscription plan (one-year, three-year, or five-year), you get the cloud platform, 24x7 support, and Limited Lifetime Warranty on the CR4520 router.
