Feb. 1, 2023, Toronto, Ont. – Cradlepoint has released the R2100 Series 5G Ruggedized Router, adding to Cradlepoint’s growing 5G Wireless WAN portfolio. Built for vehicle and IoT networks, the exterior-mounted solution is designed to provide public safety and other organizations that require a high-bandwidth IoT or mobile router with the latest cellular performance in a flexible and simplified form factor.

As in-vehicle applications have rapidly advanced, more use cases have emerged, along with diverse deployment requirements. Designed to be mounted on the rooftop of a vehicle or attached to IoT cabinet enclosures, the R2100 is said to integrate the modem, antennas and router into a single aerodynamic, IP67-rated casing that guards against weather, vibration and shock. The R2100 is sold with or without Wi-Fi 6 and can be deployed as a self-contained router or to supplement an existing router as a 5G adapter.

“Organizations are entering the next phase of their transformations, extending their reach through vehicles that need reliable connectivity to access cloud-based applications,” said Donna Johnson, senior vice president of marketing at Cradlepoint. “The R2100 Series underscores how Cradlepoint is expanding the capabilities of today’s police, fire, EMS, and transit organizations, helping these agencies and first responders alike take advantage of 5G connectedness in a streamlined, more efficient way.”

The R2100 Series 5G Ruggedized Router is powered by Cradlepoint NetCloud, providing a unified edge security solution for in-vehicle and IoT networks. For example, NetCloud gives vital public service agencies end-to-end encryption, industry-leading threat detection, and defence functionality to enable secure direct cloud and internet access for applications and IoT devices, with or without Wi-Fi. The R2100 can also support the NetCloud Exchange services which provide Zero Trust Network Access and 5G Optimized SD-WAN.
