What is Cradlepoint and NetCloud Manager?
In South Africa’s fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and retail market, downtime can lead to frustrated customers and a loss of sales. Businesses that operate in this market require a reliable and secure solution to keep restaurants and stores online despite external factors like load shedding.
When restarting the router doesn’t work, calling a specialist in to re-establish the connection can be costly. With Cradlepoints NetCloud Manager, created by Cradlepoint and supported by Infoprotect, the process is remotely managed and does away with the need to call in a professional at a premium rate.
A device is aligned with any existing fixed line infrastructure with access to fibre, wireless or LTE. A SIM card is added to the Cradlepoint, data is enabled, and a failover is created between the fibre, wireless and LTE 4G network utilising Infoprotect’s own private APN.
The solution is cloud managed, offers advanced security and ensures business continuity, thanks to its unique failover capabilities.
