Celona Joins Cradlepoint's Technology Alliances Program

CELONA JOINS CRADLEPOINT’S TECHNOLOGY ALLIANCES PARTNER PROGRAM TO COLLABORATE ON CLOUD-NATIVE PRIVATE MOBILE NETWORKS

Joint solution ensures application-aware performance and service-level-agreements for critical enterprise infrastructure

CUPERTINO, Calif. and BOISE, Idaho – May 6th 2021 - Celona, the pioneer of private 5G solutions, and Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered network edge solutions, today announced they have teamed to expand the reach of enterprise connectivity for underserved locations that now demand the highest levels of predictable wireless network performance. As a Cradlepoint Technology Alliances Partner, Celona is collaborating with Cradlepoint to enable a new generation of digital business initiatives across enterprise and public sector segments.

“Rapid uptake of private LTE and 5G technology is transforming enterprise connectivity,” said Özer Dondurmacıoğlu, VP of Marketing for Celona. “As organizations invest in network-connected systems and applications on which their businesses rely, they need the assurance that these investments are paying off. As a Cradlepoint partner, we aim to give our joint customers predictable wireless connectivity by translating their existing connected device infrastructure to private cellular.”

Celona has integrated its patent-pending MicroSlicing™ technology with the Cradlepoint NetCloud service to provide app-aware performance guarantees for connecting vital enterprise systems such as video surveillance cameras, IoT sensor infrastructures, automated guided vehicles and more.

As a result, the combined solution provides a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by removing the need for expensive cabling requirements and delivers wire-like performance to essential business applications on enterprise wireless networks, with guaranteed SLA (service level agreement) for latency, throughput, and packet error rate metrics.

The joint solution combines Celona's critically acclaimed private mobile network architecture that leverages unlicensed cellular spectrum, with the flexibility of Cradlepoint NetCloud and their LTE/5G edge routers that seamlessly connect to both private and public carrier networks. When equipped with a Celona SIM card, Cradlepoint routers seamlessly connect Wi-Fi or Ethernet-enabled endpoint devices to the Celona private mobile network, acting as the onramp to translate critical application traffic to private cellular and then on to the corporate network.

“The rapid rise of private mobile networks – driven by the availability of CBRS and other shared spectrum options available around the world –  underscores the growing role that cellular wireless technology is playing in enterprise network strategies,” said John Nye, director of Technology Alliances and Partnerships at Cradlepoint. “Partnering with Celona means that we can now offer our customers solutions that meet their specific needs for enterprise-friendly support, manageability and interoperability.”

Cradlepoint is the market leader in cellular wireless connectivity solutions, offering a wide range of 4G LTE and 5G routers to support both public and private mobile networks. Celona has developed the industry’s first vertically integrated private LTE/5G solution that gives enterprises everything they need to deploy a private mobile network, with a cloud native software architecture that easily integrates with any existing enterprise IT infrastructure environment.

The joint solution will be available starting in June 2021. To see it all in action, visit https://celona.io/cradlepoint. Interested parties can also learn more at the Celona-sponsored Cradlepoint Global Partner Summit taking place May 5-6, 2021.
