Cradlepoint NetCloud Edge Connector for AWS IoT Greengrass

Accelerating Edge to Cloud IoT Deployments

Background

The explosion of mission critical and low latency applications is driving the convergence of IoT and Edge computing. To address business critical challenges, enterprises need a flexible solution that is easy to deploy, secure, and scalable.

Cradlepoint is a global leader in LTE and 5G wireless edge network solutions for branch, mobile, and IoT networks. Some key challenges Cradlepoint helps enterprise customers create mission critical, low latency, and compute intensive applications that need real time agility and decision making at the Edge. In many scenarios, privacy regulations restrict the flow of sensitive data to the public cloud so customers need the ability to run applications locally in the absence of cloud connectivity.
