Designed for branches that require the higher performance of 5G and the flexibility of wireless, the Cradlepoint W1850 5GB Wideband Adapter ushers in the next generation of Wireless WAN networking. The W1850 is designed to accommodate the diverse spectrums, multiple generations, and breadth of new technologies introduced in 5G while delivering enterprise-class standards of scalability, comprehensive management, and security.
The W1850 5GB adapter is purpose-built for deployment in the new high-performance low - mid-band 5G spectrum. To address the tradeoff of lower propagation, Cradlepoint designed the W1850 adapter to be placed separately from the router for optimal signal reception. The stylized W1850 adapter is designated for optimal indoor placement.
While the performance of 5G is top of mind, the W1850 was also designed with enterprise-class standards for high scalability, comprehensive management, and security. Because 5G is a collection of new spectrum, new technologies, and new network infrastructure that is rolling out over several years, the Cradlepoint 5G edge networking service and endpoints accommodate the diverse deployments of an organization with hundreds or even tens of thousands of sites.
Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Branch plan unlocks the power of 5G/LTE and provides optimal performance and reliability. It is a service-based platform that spans from cloud to edge to make deploying and managing a wireless WAN easier than ever before. Centrally configure, monitor, visualize, control, and troubleshoot your network from a web console rather than at the device.
NetCloud is sold in a one, three, or five-year subscription plan and includes 24x7 support, online training, support, and a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the W1850. In addition, the NetCloud Advanced option adds features such as data traffic analytics, firewall, and URL content filtering.
5G Spectrum SolutionsThe W1850 portfolio supports all spectrum layers ensuring that
organizations have the right solution for every location. The W1850
adapter supports low and mid-band layers.
Support for Full Range of Cellular TechnologiesCradlepoint 5G solutions support all cellular generations, from 4G LTE to Gigabit-Class LTE to 5G - with the ability to gracefully transition tens of thousands of sites between generations as technology becomes available in individual locations.
