Cradlepoint’s announcement

Today, Cradlepoint starts a new journey as part of Ericsson. Together, we become the unparalleled leader in 4G and 5G network solutions – from Carrier Core to Enterprise Edge – by uniting the global leaders in cellular technology for communications service providers and cellular WAN edge solutions for the enterprise and public sector.

Ericsson has made 5G a reality as the infrastructure of choice for more than 100 communications service providers around the world. Cradlepoint is doing the same for enterprise and public sector customers by launching the industry’s first portfolio of enterprise-class WAN edge solutions that provide a graceful pathway to 5G – starting in Australia and expanding worldwide in 2021.

With our early 5G customer deployments, we have seen firsthand how this revolutionary technology can transform a business. Now, as part of Ericsson, Cradlepoint is uniquely qualified to provide the Wireless WAN edge, end-to-end intelligence, and quality of experience you need to confidently put 5G at the center of your selling motions in 2021 and beyond.

While we now have greater strength and the deepest pool of 4G and 5G experience and technology in the industry at our disposal, we remain an independent, standalone business and continue to operate under the Cradlepoint brand. We are also the enterprise go-to-market organization for Ericsson. This represents the best of all worlds. It means your trust in Cradlepoint as your Wireless WAN partner is well placed, and the relationships you have built with our partner, sales, and support teams will continue uninterrupted. It also means any new Ericsson-inspired solutions for the enterprise market will flow through the Cradlepoint global network of partners.

Our future promises many exciting Wireless WAN and 5G innovations, and we look forward to sharing them with you in the coming months. In the interim, Cradlepoint will continue to deliver wireless edge solutions with unmatched capabilities, versatility and reliability, and the support you need to help you distance yourself from the competition and drive more margin. Stay tuned.
