5G routers are not new to Cradlepoint; in fact, the company has long been a market leader in 4G and 5G. Now the new series is coming to market with the Cradlepoint R2100, and with it the router for the roof of the car.
New Cradlepoint R 2100 router for the car roof
Digital signage as well as IoT installations become future-proof with 5G and the new Cradlepoint R2100. The new router from market leader Cradlepoint is made for mounting on the roof of vehicles and can radio in the midband range of 5G. This makes the new router perfect for applications that require a lot of data. The areas of public safety, mass transit and IoT are served by it.
It also makes it easier for firefighters and police to transmit video data. The R2100 router does not need any antennas in the outdoor area, so there are no cables. Power is supplied via Power-over-Ethernet and thus via LAN cable. This, in turn, means low costs for housing and vehicle construction, which is particularly noticeable for large quantities. The router can also be used as an adapter if 4G installations from Cradlepoint are already in place.
Possible applications of the Cradlepoint R2100
The R2100 router can be used more frequently as the network expands with 5G. More and more travelers want to use broadband WLAN on public transport – they will be well served by the Cradlepoint R2100. Fleet operators will also be among the customers if they want to retrieve and track their fleet data in real time. They can also use it to plan maintenance intervals, which significantly increases efficiency within their own companies.
Fire departments can call up real-time data in the database, and the police stream videos to their control centers. A LAN connection is thus no longer necessary, and thanks to 5G and the R2100, the data is sent on in high resolution.
