As the future of 5G comes closer, we're working with Cradlepoint to help first responders and businesses prepare for this coming shift. Starting today, Cradlepoint's latest in-office and rugged in-vehicle 5G Evolution routers are available only on the FirstNet communications platform and AT&T network. The devices provide first responders and businesses with the fastest speeds possible today2 while also giving them a path to easily upgrade to 5G in the future.


These Cradlepoint 5G Evolution routers are available only to FirstNet subscribers and AT&T business customers until March 2019.

IBR900-1200M and IBR1700-1200M – Ruggedized, GPS-enabled mobile routers built to connect a wide range of in-vehicle applications that can be used in a variety of public safety and commercial settings: police cruisers, ambulances, fire apparatuses, mobile command centers, public utility vehicles, school buses, delivery trucks, taxi and limo fleets, and more.

AER2200-1200M – An all-in-one office router designed for small- to medium-sized businesses.

MC400-1200M – A modular modem that can be used with applicable Cradlepoint routers to provide primary or secondary LTE connectivity on the FirstNet communications platform or other AT&T networks.

“The new opportunities that 5G will bring have captured the interest and imagination of both the public safety and enterprise sectors,” said Brian Partridge, VP, 451 Research. “AT&T and Cradlepoint are helping lay the foundation for future 5G success by helping bring faster speeds to these groups today while collaborating to deliver a potential pathway to full 5G as it becomes available in the future.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
