Cradlepoint Cites Strong Public-Safety Growth
Thursday, August 08, 2019 | Comments

Cradlepoint said it achieved 200% year over year customer growth in the public-safety market for its NetCloud service and Long Term Evolution (LTE) edge routers. Cradlepoint has surpassed 3,000 federal, state and local public-safety customers worldwide.

Cradlepoint has public-safety deployments on three continents and in every U.S. state, as well as the 25 largest U.S. cities enabling secure, mission-critical communications for vehicles, stations, mobile command centers, incident response teams, surveillance cameras, and other sites and devices over both commercial and dedicated public-safety cellular networks.

“This milestone demonstrates our commitment to the public-safety market and first responders everywhere,” said Todd Krautkremer, chief marketing officer at Cradlepoint. “First responder and emergency services personnel who depend on mission-critical communications to stay safe and productive are at the center of everything we do and influence how we design, develop, deliver and support our public-safety solutions.”

The Nevada Highway Patrol equips its vehicle fleet and troopers with Cradlepoint service and in-vehicle routers, giving troopers reliable connections over multiple LTE networks.

“As a highway patrol division, our vehicles have to travel throughout the entire state. It’s important for us to have a solution that works whether we’re in Reno, Alamo or anywhere else,” said Lt. Chris LaPrairie, commander of Nevada Highway Patrol’s research and planning section. “Remote network management using the NetCloud service helps us tremendously. If we want to configure or update 50 modems, we just point and click from headquarters. With other solutions, we’d have to go to each vehicle and individually program each one, modem by modem.”

Following Hurricane Michael, the Gulf County (Florida) Emergency Operations Center (EOC) needed an internet connection to coordinate with outside agencies to begin the process of recovery. The EOC installed a Cradlepoint router to connect to the emergency deployable nationwide public-safety broadband network. Using this solution, the Gulf County EOC was able to communicate with numerous first responders, disaster recovery agencies and support partners to accelerate hurricane recovery operations.
