Pathway to 5G

For organizations all over the world, 5G represents the promise of a wireless WAN future defined by the ability to provide 24x7 connectivity for people, places, and things everywhere.

Using cellular-based broadband as wireless WAN has been an essential part of enterprise networking for years. As 4G LTE   transforms into Gigabit-Class LTE   and eventually both fixed and mobile 5G  , wireless is poised to change the world with exceptional new levels of reliability, performance, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Businesses and agencies will use 5G to connect devices and applications that expand customer engagement, streamline operations, and enable agility in ways that have never been possible — until now.

The Pathway to 5G is built upon familiar technologies such as 4G LTE and new arrivals such as Gigabit-Class LTE and Private LTE. As this evolution unfolds, enterprises will rely on cohesion between the wireless network and the edge — part of Cradlepoint’s Elastic Edge™ vision.
