Boise, ID — March 2, 2016 — Cradlepoint, the global leader in software-defined 4G LTE network solutions for enterprises, announced today it was awarded Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Innovation Award. The BIG Innovation Award represents the brightest and most innovative companies in the world. Cradlepoint was recognized for on-going excellence in empowering enterprises to augment, complement, and extend connectivity across their organizations through software-defined LTE overlay networks. Cradlepoint’s unique approach helps businesses reduce operational costs, enhance security, and drive revenue.
Enterprise adoption of cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) is driving the need for always-on connectivity. Additionally, IT departments are strained to improve network performance and maintain security, all while lowering costs. Cradlepoint helps enterprises in retail, transportation, public safety, financial services, insurance, healthcare, and education to quickly and cost-effectively manage high-speed, secure networks and services. Using cloud-based and software-defined LTE, Cradlepoint easily creates overlay networks to offload non-core applications, like WiFi and digital signage, onto physically separate and secure networks. Mobile and IoT networks extend to vehicles, kiosks, and other disperse locations. Failover complements primary networks by using additional network connections to increase reliability and availability. Regardless of which type of overlay network is used, Cradlepoint’s solutions can be deployed and managed in real-time from a central location, significantly reducing deployment costs and time.
“Enterprises today require LTE, as it tackles specific challenges that traditional wired networks simply cannot address. Cradlepoint enables businesses to harness the power of LTE and create parallel networks, network redundancy, and augmented bandwidth. As a result, our customers realize fast, robust, and pervasive connectivity that can meet the modern networking demands associated with cloud services and other data-rich applications,” said Ian Pennell, CMO at Cradlepoint. “It is an honor to receive this BIG Innovation Award. This win demonstrates the momentum Cradlepoint is gaining in its ability to enable enterprise LTE everywhere.”
“It was clear from our judges that Cradlepoint was clearly deserving of being recognized as a leader in innovation and we are proud to award them the 2016 BIG Innovation Award,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “Congratulations to the entire team. This is well-deserved recognition of your pursuit of excellence and creativity in solving problems.”
