Upgrade to NetCloud Advanced - details

The E3000 Essentials Solutions package includes the E3000-5G router and support for 5 years:

  • NetCloud Software (NetCloud Manager Prime, NetCloud OS, NetCloud Perimeter)
  • 24x7 Cradlepoint Support
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service with E3000 Series Router is suited for fixed branch, healthcare, financial services and retail locations, ideally when combined with need for security services at scale with performance. The all-in-one form factor includes full- featured routing, security, switching with PoE ports and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect branches to the Internet and critical applications without the need for extra hardware or complicated configurations. And the embedded 5G/LTE modem means that connectivity is always available from day 1 without waiting for a wired connection.

For an all wireless WAN, the E3000 offers Gigabit-class 5G and LTE performance, which can support the throughput and service needs of an enterprise branch with the ability to add a second 5G or LTE connection for increased available bandwidth and reliability. For organizations moving to a Wireless WAN, the E3000 offers the ability to pair 5G/LTE with a wired link and use cellular as a failover connection or a primary connection.

The E3000 Enterprise Branch Router is 5G-optimized with the ability to act as a controller for a Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapter. The unique capability of Cradlepoint to operate the adapter in captive mode means that the two separate, Ethernet-connected appliances can be managed as a single entity. In addition, the E3000 Is designed to embed a future generation modular 5G modem. These two capabilities ensure not only upward compatibility for 5G, but the best investment protection available.

Router Features:
  • Internet Connections Supported: 2 embedded cellular modules (1 x 5G/Cat 20 LTE modem included; additional MC400s sold separately), 9 Wired WAN, 1 SFP+, WiFi as WAN* (more info)
  • Networks Supported for Embedded Modem: 5G NR bands n1, n2, n3, n5, n28, n41, n66, n71, n77, n78, n79; LTE bands B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B8, B12, B13, B14, B17, B18, B19, B20, B25, B26, B28, B29, B30, B32, B66, B71; WCDMA bands B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B8, B9, B19
  • WiFi Standard: 4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 with DFS
  • WiFi Range: 500-600' through walls, much greater unobstructed (variable depending on interference from other electronics and physical interference such as walls and ceilings)
  • Ethernet ports: 9 configurable GbE LAN/WAN, 1 configurable 10GbE SFP+, 1 x 2.5GbE RJ45
  • Size: 6.3" x 12.6" x 1.7"

*Compatibility with all WiFi networks cannot be guaranteed. Networks requiring authentication on a "splash page" (e.g. Starbucks WiFi) in particular can be hit or miss.

E3000 Key Features:

  • Take advantage of embedded 5G/Cat 20 LTE modem for fast day-1 or primary connectivity.
  • Terminate a primary wired broadband link with 5G or LTE as failover for highly resilient hybrid connectivity.
  • Enable larger branch locations especially when combined with comprehensive security and application analytic ability.
  • Integrate into your existing network with standards-based dynamic routing and VPN tunnel support.
  • Define policies through centralized,cloud-based management for easy deployment at scale.
  • Add a second cellular modem for dual cellular connectivity.
  • 5G Ready acting as Captive Modem controller for Cradlepoint 5G Wideband Adapters.
