Wireless 4G for Branch Offices and Backup Redundancy
As cloud computing continues to grow so does the dependence on internet access. “Internet failures” will cripple productivity for an office full of workers or abruptly stop a retail store from processing customer credit cards.
Cellular 4G provides speeds faster than DSL and can provide primary support for branch offices, jobsite trailers, and retail locations requiring broadband access.
Cradlepoint 3G/4G routers support LTE, HSPA+, and EVDO Rev A. Theoretical downlink rates for LTE can be up to 100 Mbps but depends on signal strength and other things. They can be ordered for use with any of the major cellular carriers including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
Cradlepoint ARC MBR1400 and CBA750, CBA850 3G/4G Routers
The ARC MBR1400 includes 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz WiFi and supports advanced security features including VPN,VLAN, and WAN Affinity. There are 5 Ethernet ports and it supports up to 128 WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n) at the same time. Four SSID’s can be programmed to separate mission-critical traffic.
The ARC CBA750B provides an easy plug and play failover solution without WiFi for simplified PCI compliance. It includes antennas, uses Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and has one 10/100 LAN port to attach an Ethernet device. It can be also used for a primary 4G connection for kiosks.
The ARC CBA850 is a new model is a white housing. It provides 3G/4G/LTE failover that integrates seamlessly with existing network infrastructure. Using Enterprise Cloud Manager PRIME, it can extend management capability to any primary router Out-of-Band without a static IP.
Designed for PCI 3.0 compliant network architectures, it is perfect for retail customers using POS.
The included paddle antennas work surprisingly well. We have been able to access LTE speeds from locations with no smartphone 4G signal. There are also optional outside, magnetic and directional antennas that improve signal strength and throughput.
