Cradlepoint AER3100 Series

cradlepoint-logoAll-in-One Advanced Edge Routing

The all-in-one networking solution that can be deployed, managed, and optimized via the cloud.

The Cradlepoint AER3100 is an advanced edge routing solution that combines cloud-management, advanced security (UTM), WAN Diversity, industry leading 4G LTE failover, high performance WiFi, and dual modem capabilities for deployment versatility when wired lines are too costly or not available.

Administrators can extend best-in-breed management and security applications to remote branches with a solution that is customizable and lowers the total cost of ownership in a single deployment.
