Overview:

The purpose-built adapter

Cradlepoint endpoints provide industry-leading, LTE Advanced connectivity as well as Ethernet and Wi-Fi. These purpose-built endpoints are sold with a subscription to NetCloud Service for Branch Continuity which provides streamlined configuration and continuous cloud, modem, and router software feature enhancements.


Designed for remote sites that require secure, reliable failover connectivity in the event of a primary link disruption, the L950 Series cellular broadband adapter is a simple addition at the branch which significantly improves uptime and business continuity. These sophisticated devices can be configured at scale with NetCloud to offer a full range of zero-touch deployment, troubleshooting, and management features and integrate into existing configurations with standards-based routing, traffic shaping, and VPN support.

Notable Features

  • Maximize network uptime using LTE WAN for failover and link diversity.
  • Deploy within any existing networking or SD-WAN environment.
  • Configure with greater simplicity and confidence with the wizard-based installation application.
  • Utilize Day-1 connectivity while waiting for terrestrial links.
  • Manage the Cradlepoint router and LTE adapter as one entity for singular control and visibility.
  • Troubleshoot adapter and in-line devices with advanced Out-of-Band Management to reduce truck rolls.
  • Offload primary connections during traffic surges and network congestion.

High Performance LTE for Failover Link Diversity

LTE wireless WANs provide a powerful, flexible, and cost-effective failover option to minimize disruption in the event of an outage. Working in conjunction with an existing router or SD-WAN, the L950 Series Adapter establishes a cellular connection based on established failover policies. The L950, despite its compact design, houses a Cat 7 modem, two Ethernet interfaces with a power over ethernet (PoE), a dual SIM capability to connect up to two carriers, and antenna. With this performance, many remote location operations and applications continue functioning while in failover.

Day-1 Connectivity for Rapid Deployment

Establish secure network connections to get operations running while waiting for a wired connection. L950 Series Adapters uniquely connect via LTE independently of the primary link so they don’t require prior connection via wired networks. Cradlepoint wireless broadband solutions can be set up in hours with zero-touch deployment without IT staff on location, so local personnel can set up the network. Once the wired link is established, the L950 Series Adapter falls into backup mode.

Features and Benefits:

Key Software Capabilities

The NetCloud Service provides everything needed to unlock the power of LTE at the network edge and connect devices to critical applications and services. It enables customers to build and manage wireless WANs with complete lifecycle management, true zero-touch deployment, robust security, and foundational SD-WAN traffic management for optimal application performance and reliability. The service includes a warranty for as long as an active subscription on the router, online training, live and online support, and all software and firmware updates.


Out-of-Band Management

To mitigate the effects of an unreachable router, the L950 offers efficient, advanced Out-of-Band Management. Network administrators can connect to the router and other in-line devices over the air, even if IP and Ethernet are unavailable on the router, improving uptime and reducing truck rolls.

Quantifiable Data and Insights on Failover Events

In the NetCloud Health dashboard, view data for avoided disruptions from failover events, and see quantified ROI in the NetCloud Insights failover report. Additionally, analyze the primary-links service level agreement (SLA) performance for potential to recoup costs, as well as understand the secondary network’s performance, including Interface Uptime, Cellular Health, and Quality of Experience.


Cradlepoint Verify™ Mobile Application

As an extension to NetCloud, Cradlepoint Verify helps installers quickly and accurately install the L950 for optimal LTE signal reception. Upon a verified installation, users receive a detailed report that includes installation pictures, speed test results, and modem health metrics.

* Cellular carriers and operators throughout the world may only require telecom industry certifications, like PTCRB or GCF, to operate on their network. Some carriers require additional testing and approval, beyond telecom certifications. A carrier listed in the approvals section means Cradlepoint completed additional testing and acquired technical approval for that given carrier. Any carrier not listed may not require additional testing or approval beyond telecom industry certifications to operate on their network.
