Cradlepoint Cooks Up Cloud Connectivity

Mitch Wagner

Cradlepoint started out selling a cradle you could drop your mobile phone into to set up a WiFi hotspot. That was in 2006, and it's a good thing they got out of that racket; WiFi tethering is now a commodity feature in smartphones.

Also, Cradlepoint quickly saw that it didn't want to be in the consumer market, so it switched gears to the enterprise space. But it's still in the business of making wireless simple.

Now, Cradlepoint provides appliances and solutions that make it easy for enterprises to configure 4G LTE fixed wireless networks, such as fast-food chains with large numbers of remote offices that don't have any local IT staff. Its products also make it easy for customers to configure wireless networks for vehicular connectivity, such as in police cars, and for the Internet of Things. In fact, the appliances are so easy to configure that even a fry cook can do it, Cradlepoint says.

So simple even this guy could do it.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
