San Francisco, CA (Vocus) October 7, 2010
Today at the CTIA Enterprise & Applications Conference, CradlePoint Technology announced a new series of integrated modem enclosures that provide customers enhanced access to both 4G and 3G networks in a seamless solution.
The CradlePoint MC100W Integrated Modem Enclosure is powered by a business-grade WiMAX modem module. When combined with the CradlePoint CBA750 Mobile Broadband Adapter, the MC100W provides optimized speed, signal strength and throughput, ideal for applications like retail POS and branch offices with minimal IT staff. The MC100W provides downlink throughput of up to 10Mbps peak with and average of 6Mbps, and uplink throughput of 5Mbps peak with an average of 1.2Mbps on typical WiMAX networks.
“Our business customers are asking for a product that gives them the best signal, best possible performance and highest level of integration with our products. The MC100W delivers all of that.” said Ken Hosac, Director of Product Management for CradlePoint. “This solution makes it easier to use the 4G/WiMAX networks for applications like network failover to keep a business up and running.”
The MC100W is designed to securely attach to compatible CradlePoint products, creating a secure, embedded solution. Unlike standard USB or ExpressCard modem sticks, the internal WiMAX module cannot be used in laptops or personal computers. As a result, the modem is not a theft target for unauthorized uses.
The MC100W is the first in a series of integrated modem enclosures that will support EVDO, LTE, HSPA+ and the newly-released 4G/WiMAX version. Also announced is a line of accessories such as antennas, mounts, PoE injectors and weather/security enclosures to enhance and customize the MC100W. The MC100W is available for an MSRP of $249.99 at http://www.cradlepoint.com/MC100W.
