The Compact Broadband Router from CradlePoint is a feature-rich business router that caters to industries who require flexible, reliable and secured Internet access such as temporary Internet applications, additional network bandwidth or for kiosks, digital signage, and other Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications.

Built for business applications like travel, mobile workgroups, or stationary remote Internet access, the CBR400 Compact Broadband Router provides up to 16 secure WiFi connections at a time. Its advanced networking features such as WiPipe Security, VPN Termination, and Failover/Failback (which protects your network in case the primary data service fails) help in keeping your business on track.

Standard on the CBR400 are additional security features like multiple WiFi encryption modes (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Personal and Enterprise) and a built-in firewall, which prevents unauthorized use of your connection. CradlePoint routers are built to work with most popular 4G/3G USB modems from: AT&T, Bell Canada, Clearwire, Cricket, Rogers, Sprint, T-Mobile, Telus, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless, and Virgin Mobile.

      Comments about CradlePoint Compact Broadband Router:

      I purchased this CradlePoint for use in disaster deployments when I might need a number of different configuations if the infrastructure is down. It can be as simple as one wants, or as complex as one needs. I'm still not done learning. This is not something you grab going "out the door". Better get confortable BEFORE deployment. But I'm sure it will do all that I need, and some! I intend to configure this with a 12vdc SLA battery to put in my packpack to provide comm to my strike team.
