Cradlepoint expands vehicle solutions for ESN

Cradlepoint, a leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, has received ESN Connect Critical certification and approval for its Gigabit-Class MC400 Modular Modem. When added to the NetCloud Service with IBR900 mobile router, via an expansion dock, the modem provides a compact and rugged in-vehicle solution that supports the full capabilities of the Emergency Services Network (ESN).

Cradlepoint solutions turn blue light vehicles into mobile offices, with a Wi-Fi ‘bubble’ to connect laptops, Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs), dashboard and body-worn cameras, and sensors to the Internet and vital back-office systems. The IBR900 configured with the MC400 Modular Modem provides a compact and rugged option for police cars and other vehicles where installation space is limited and can collect vehicle information and track vehicle location. ESN Connect Critical delivers the highest priority connection over the cellular network in the event of congestion. At the same time, Cradlepoint’s Gigabit-Class LTE support ensures optimal connection speed.

James Bristow, Senior Vice President EMEA, Cradlepoint, said, “Cradlepoint has a long history of working with the emergency services in the UK and around the world, and we are committed to providing in-vehicle wireless network solutions that support the full breadth of ESN services. Our introduction of a new modular modem with Critical Data Bearer support is the latest example of our commitment. It allows emergency services to simply update their existing Cradlepoint infrastructure to be at the forefront of critical communication.”
