Broadsky’s Cradlepoint NetCloud – 4 Benefits

July 14, 2017
Insights from Access Tech

The Cradlepoint NetCloud model from Broadsky uses several different technologies and a NaaS, or Network-as-a-Service, and merges them with an Enterprise Cloud Manager platform. This means more simplified cloud-based software-defined networking (SDN) management and no-touch deployment of 4G LTE-enabled routers, wired, and wireless networks.
There are several benefits to this model that you’ll want to look at before making the change.
Here are 4 Benefits of Cradlepoint’s NetCloud:
Full Branch Office, Remote Worker, and M2M Support
Due to NetCloud’s virtual cloud network with LAN emulation, enterprises can support our increasingly mobile era with 4G LTE, SD-WAN and Cloud services, ideal for multi-WAN environments. This will allow for much more access to applications such as Office 365, GSuite, cameras, sensors, etc., connected via the virtual cloud.
Subscription-Based Services Lower Expenses
The NetCloud engine doesn’t require additional hardware or configuration so there are no extra costs for hardware-specific changes. Also, NetCloud’s automation capabilities reduce complexity.
Single-Pane-of-Glass Management
The Enterprise Cloud Manager by Cradlepoint enables the no-touch deployment for remote management and extremely fast deployment. This allows IT administrators to configure and scale networks across branches at a quick pace, as well as in vehicles and for virtual/remote users. The cloud-based management extends to any primary router.
Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) Model
Since the NetCloud Engine is delivered in the NaaS model, it has cloud infrastructure and network and service virtualization software. This allows virtual networks to work like a virtual LAN switch in the cloud.
