MobileCorp leading adoption of 5G Wireless WAN

As 5G rolls out, the benefits of a wireless-first solution - scalability, swift deployment, and superior performance at the network edge - have become more apparent to Australian enterprises. 

Cradlepoint solutions are the pathway to 5G as they enable any combination of 4G, Gigabit-class LTE, and 5G in a single wireless WAN.

“Cradlepoint has proven time and again that it is the right solution for our customers. The wireless-first approach, along with the rollout of 5G, delivers what matters most to our customers - agile and secure, cloud-first, wireless connectivity. We believe it is just the beginning of the growth cycle for Cradlepoint, wireless WAN and 5G."

Stephen Aravopoulos, Managing Director MobileCorp

Australian enterprises are embracing Cradlepoint wireless 

MobileCorp has been working with several enterprise customers who are utilising Cradlepoint connectivity solutions, future-proofed for 5G. A couple of examples include:

  • Ticketek upgrades its network with Cradlepoint AER2200s providing a multi-path network environment for 70 branch locations with local internet breakout protected by a built-in firewall. In this case Cradlepoint's branch solution fits into a larger solution with additional main sites retaining private network connections, and with all sites then connected to an AWS environment. 
  • Schindler Lifts were unable to move into a new Adelaide-based branch office due to the complexity of their MPLS network build which required civil works. Looking for a temporary fix, the Cradlepoint AER2200 with Telstra 4GX has provided a reliable and secure branch connectivity solution. MobileCorp has supplied and configured the router and set-up the Cradlepoint NetCloud portal which provides proactive monitoring and OTA management.
  • Marine Rescue NSW with 40 coastal sites both remote and regional who were looking for reliable connectivity including the ability to scale bandwidth when crowds enter the area for beach carnivals and during school holidays. They also required reliable Telstra mobile signal and Telstra mobile fail-over connectivity to ensure continued internet access and communications during weather events and bushfire season. MobileCorp supplied solution architecture, Cradlepoint router configuration, NetCloud portal set-up, and an ongoing monitoring managed service. Read Case Study.

Other organisations in the industry verticals of equipment hire, healthcare, construction and event management have also undertaken Cradlepoint proof of concept trials or installed devices.
