Cradlepoint E3000 Router with 5G or 4G LTE, WiFi, and NetCloud Enterprise Branch Package

The Cradlepoint E3000 cellular router offers industry-leading Gigabit-Class, 5G optimized LTE connectivity. The E3000 combines a state of the art hardware, cloud services, and advanced network management for enterprise-class performance. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Enterprise Branch Package with the E3000 router is perfect for fixed branch offices, healthcare facilities, financial services, command centers, and retail locations that demand easy network management, security, reliability, and high data throughput. The Cradlepoint E3000 includes full routing, a stateful firewall, Ethernet switching, Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports, fiber-optic SFP slots, and Wi-Fi. The wide variety of wired and wireless interfaces makes it easy to connect a broad array of devices and local area networks without extra hardware or complicated configurations. The embedded Cat 18 LTE modem provides immediate cellular connectivity from day one. No waiting for a wired connection from an ISP. The E3000 may be used as the primary network connection or as a backup (failover) to a more extensive system.

NetCloud Enterprise Branch Package

The all-inclusive NetCloud Enterprise Branch Package enables safe connections to critical applications and the Internet from any remote location. NetCloud offers rapid deployment and dynamic management of wireless WAN networks at geographically distributed locations. It is designed for IT professionals and end-users who need substantial data throughput with flexibility, reliable performance, and simplified management in an all-in-one, compact solution. NetCloud defines and distributes global policies for advanced routing, traffic control, and security. It captures business intelligence on health and status, alerts, security posture, network conditions, and carrier usage.

Router Services
The E3000’s processing power simultaneously manages router-delivered services, dynamic routing protocols, and application-aware traffic steering.


Security Services
The NetCloud Essentials and Advanced package include a stateful zone-based firewall and threat protection. It optimizes the E3000 to meet the evolving security needs of distributed environments.


Connection Manager

Oversees all wireless and wired WAN connections from a single software-defined policy. The E3000 modem software ensures fast wireless WAN connectivity while maintaining the highest level of resiliency.


Cloud Services

NetCloud Manager, with zero-touch deployment, defines policies across groups of endpoints. Create a cloud-based VPN network with insights and analytics needed for troubleshooting and workflows.


Cradlepoint E3000 Connections

Regarding ports, the Cradlepoint E3000 has diverse connections that handle nearly any networking scenario. It is equipped with an internal Ethernet switch comprised of six standard Gigabit ports, three Power over Ethernet (PoE), a massive 2.5 Gigabit PoE port; one SFP slot for a fiber optic run; 4x4 MIMO LTE; and 4x4 MIMO 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi. The E3000 modem router is 5G-optimized, meaning it will accept a future, modular 5G modem. Being upward compatible with 5G offers investment protection when the next generation of networks roll out. The E3000 is sold with a NetCloud Package that includes a NetCloud Service subscription, LTE modem, software updates, 24x7 support, on-demand training, and limited lifetime warranty.
