Cradlepoint’s W1850 5G Wideband Adapter has been certified to provide C-band spectrum connectivity across Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband (UWB) Network — a significant milestone for Verizon’s 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) strategy.
For businesses, the need for fiber-fast and cellular-simple connectivity is expanding and driving the need for 5G solutions. To meet this demand, Verizon plans to have 5G UWB available to 175 million people by year-end 2022. With Cradlepoint’s newly certified mid-band capable adapter providing access to Verizon’s expanded 5G UWB, businesses can achieve fast, agile, and secure connectivity.
“Businesses are looking for partners that can provide fit-for-purpose solutions that unlock the full potential of 5G,” said Massimo Peselli, senior vice president of global enterprise, Verizon Business. The collaboration unlocks the potential of cellular for businesses and delivers Verizon’s 5G UWB to businesses of all sizes, enabling them to take advantage of the C-Band spectrum. “Our strategic relationship has allowed us to deliver enterprise-class solutions that, among other things, enable IT organizations to manage the entire Wireless WAN lifecycle,” added Peselli.
With over 1 million active users between them, Cradlepoint and Verizon have a long-standing and successful relationship delivering Wireless WAN solutions to some of the world’s largest enterprises. Cradlepoint’s new C-band-capable W1850 Wideband Adapter will provide Verizon customers with the speed, capacity, and coverage they need to support bandwidth-intensive and latency-sensitive use cases, such as video, immersive and collaborative applications.
“Cradlepoint 5G Wireless WAN solutions have been specifically designed to support the Verizon 5G mid-band networks and have gone through extensive testing and certification from Verizon,” said Justin Blair, vice president of carrier business development at Cradlepoint. “Cradlepoint has in-depth experience supporting enterprise adoption of 5G services—whether you need low, mid, or high band—we will have you covered regardless of your use case.”
