MobileCorp delivers Cradlepoint future-proofed wireless networks 

There is increasing demand in Australia for mobile and edge network solutions - from temporary or pop-up connectivity, to scalable branch networks, remote working connectivity, and edge IOT device networks, says MobileCorp CTO, Phill McSherry.

"Organisations are understanding they can now trust the reliability and capacity of wireless networks. We are seeing a growing willingness to embrace these solutions, even more so post-Covid with many organisations already having shifted far outside their usual comfort zone with connectivity solutions.

"Any network solution that utilises Cradlepoint routers will be future-proofed. This is the outcome we want for our customers - a wireless network solution that works brilliantly now and will integrate with 5G as it becomes mainstream."

Australian Cradlepoint Use Cases

MobileCorp has delivered a range of Cradlepoint connectivity solutions. A couple of examples include:

  • An enterprise event management company using Cradlepoint AER2200s for a multi-path network environment for 70 branch locations with local internet breakout protected by a built-in firewall. A further 70 sites which include stadiums and concert venues requiring temporary enterprise grade pop-up networks.

  • A NSW construction company rely on Cradlepoint routers to provide stable, secure and enterprise-grade wireless network access on sites which are under construction and have no fixed infrastructure.
  • A medical supplies company whose new warehouse on the outskirts of Sydney was looking at a wait time of several months to have NBN connected but was otherwise ready to open. They used a Cradlepoint AER1600 router to provide a primary link for internet access. When NBN comes onstream, the Cradlepoint router will provide a failover link to 4GX.  Read Case Study
  • A evacuation centre during last summer's bushfires was hastily established at Hastings outside Melbourne. The centre required instant connectivity to process 1900 refugees who had been rescued by the Australian Navy from the beaches at Mallacoota township. The Cradlepoint network also allowed people to reconnect with friends and family and to communicate the news that they had reached safety. Read Case Study

They also required reliable Telstra mobile signal and Telstra LTE fail-over connectivity to ensure continued internet access and communications during weather events and bushfire season.
