Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, has announced the re-designed outdoor Cradlepoint W1855-5GC Wideband Adapter
Adding to Cradlepoint’s innovative 5G portfolio, the W1855 enables enterprises to future-proof connectivity investments as they adopt Standalone (SA) 5G networks and commit to stronger sustainability goals. Purpose-built to require less design materials and operational energy than its predecessor while adhering to the latest 5G standards, the outdoor Cradlepoint W1855-5GC Wideband Adapter ushers in the latest generation of Wireless WAN networking with a goal of supporting global sustainability objectives.
As the enterprise adopts innovative 5G connectivity solutions to transform business operations and prevent disruption, the increasing volatility stemming from climate change has highlighted the need to implement technology that mitigates further negative environmental and business impact. According to a Gartner press release, “86% of business leaders see sustainability as an investment that protects their organisation from disruption.”
“At Uplink, we are using the current generation of outdoor adapters to support critical communications as a part of our network service to radio stations. The re-design of the new W1855, with its smaller size and lighter weight make it easier to transport and deploy to those locations,” explained Thomas Rupp, head of IT at UPLINK. “NetCloud Manger for centralised management allows us roll-out and manage our network without onsite staff. As a company that values streamlining processes, we look for the same sustainability and efficiency that Cradlepoint brings to our IT team.”
“In addition to continuing to adhere to the latest 5G technology standards, Cradlepoint is also committed to exploring new avenues to help customers further additional business goals,” said Donna Johnson, CMO of Cradlepoint and Ericsson’s head of enterprise wireless solutions marketing. “Sustainability is top of mind for enterprise globally, including at Cradlepoint and Ericsson, and we’re thrilled to partner with companies to create a more collective effort toward reducing energy consumption and wasteful packaging and design.”
Cradlepoint’s commitment to a sustainable future
Cradlepoint and its parent company Ericsson, have set an ambition to be Net Zero across its value chain by 2040 and its most important contribution to climate change mitigation is delivering an energy efficient portfolio that will help break the energy curve of mobile networks, reducing customers’ energy use, energy cost and carbon emissions.
