CradlePoint Technology, a provider of 3G/4G networking solutions, has announced a new mobile broadband adapter that gives companies better options and flexibility for broadband access.
According to a release, the CBA750, part of CradlePoint’s “All-Connected” business series of routers, gives businesses the ability to add a secure wireless 3G/4G broadband connection anywhere. It brings the strongest 3G/4G wireless broadband signal back to the server room. It is needed to fix CBA750 anywhere in the building for best signal, and the CBA750 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) feature takes advantage of existing CAT5 cabling to bring the connection back to the equipment room.
“Trying to get a good wireless broadband signal in the server room is always difficult. This solution opens a whole new way to provide wireless broadband to companies,” stated Ken Hosac, CradlePoint’s director of product marketing.
The CradlePoint CBA750 3G/4G Mobile Broadband Adapter provides IP Pass-Through capabilities for any device that requires wireless broadband access. For most applications, simply connect the CBA750, turn the unit on, and it’s ready to go. Quick to install, the CBA750 handles the connection without configuration and provides enhanced network connectivity with support for USB and ExpressCard modems running on 3G/4G Networks. Adding a wireless backup or even primary connection has never been easier.
As a high-performance adapter, the CBA750 supports multiple and concurrent application streams for the attached device, converting Ethernet to mobile broadband and mobile broadband to Ethernet. This flexible connectivity solution is platform independent, features two operating modes (configuration and IP Pass-Through), and has an “always-on” signal strength meter to determine the best mobile broadband reception for optimum placement. The CBA750 is truly a “drop-in” 3G/4G solution for adding mobile broadband capability effortlessly.
Also, CradlePoint’s WiPipe technology provides access and traffic management to improve the security and quality of the online mobile experience.
