W2005 Series | Highlights

High-Performance Wideband

The W2005-5GB 5G Wideband Adapter is purpose-built for outdoor deployment in the coverage and capacity spectrum layers. To address the tradeoff of lower propagation in the capacity layer, Cradlepoint designed the W2005-5GB to be placed on the outside of buildings for optimal signal reception.

Designed for Enterprise-Class Business

While the performance of 5G is top of mind, the W-Series was also designed with enterprise-class standards for high scalability, comprehensive management, and security. Because 5G is a collection of new spectrum, new technologies, and new network infrastructure that is rolling out over several years, the Cradlepoint 5G edge networking service and endpoints accommodate the diverse deployments of an organization with hundreds or even tens of thousands of sites.

Carrier-Class Connectivity

Although each network operator conforms to 3GPP standards, they implement those standards differently to gain optimal efficiency and performance from their network. Additionally, software from modem manufacturers is designed to serve multiple operators within broad markets. The W-Series uses a customized software-defined modem, pre-programmed endpoints, and multilevel integrity testing to predict vulnerable connections and deliver carrier-class connectivity.

5G Spectrum Solutions

The W-series portfolio supports all spectrum layers ensuring that organizations have the right solution for every location. The W2000 and W2005 support low- and mid-band layers while the W4005 supports low-, mid-, and high-band layers.

Support for a Full Range of Cellular Technologies

Cradlepoint 5G solutions support all cellular generations, from 4G LTE to Gigabit-Class LTE to 5G — with the ability to gracefully transition tens of thousands of sites between generations as technology becomes available in individual locations.

Complete Lifecycle Management

Cradlepoint 5G solutions help enterprises minimize complexity from installation to troubleshooting with tools and features such as the mobile installation application, the captive modem feature, 5G tools demonstrate 5G service value, and Out-of-Band Management.

Intelligent Hybrid WAN Connectivity

Cradlepoint 5G solutions deliver effortless wireless endpoint management in a “wired-first SD-WAN” environment and provides all-in-one capabilities (routing, embedded wireless, and foundational SD-WAN) in a “wireless-first SD-WAN” deployment.
