NetMotion and Cradlepoint today announced a technology alliance relationship that will give customers in public safety, transportation, healthcare, utilities and other mobile workforce-oriented industries access to the companies’ complementary and interoperable range of best-in-class network solutions, allowing them to deploy quickly and with complete confidence. Combining Cradlepoint’s strengths in cloud-delivered wireless edge networks and NetMotion’s full suite of mobile connectivity, analytics and operational intelligence solutions, the world’s rapidly growing mobile workforce will have access to integrated, always on, always protected, always optimized connections that help improve everything from productivity and user experience to safety and security.
A majority of first responders in North America have already deployed solutions from Cradlepoint, NetMotion, or both, with a combined international footprint that is rapidly expanding. With 5G technology promising to be an enormous catalyst for the continued growth of mobility, Cradlepoint and NetMotion are ideally positioned to help first responders and other mobile workforces quickly and reliably establish a persistent network connection that is fast and secure while enabling an exceptional user experience.
“We can’t afford to compromise when it comes to public safety,” said Adrian Hutchinson, superintendent, Mobile Technology, London Metropolitan Police Service. “That’s why we’ve invested in solutions from Cradlepoint and NetMotion that ensure fast, efficient, reliable and secure communications with our officers at critical times, allowing them to spend more time on the streets helping and protecting the public. We’re changing the game in the way we fight crime and bring offenders to justice, making our community and our officers safer as a result.”
“Perhaps no other mobile workforce is more dependent on fast, resilient and secure wireless connectivity for their productivity and safety than first responders,” said Donna Johnson, vice president of Product and Solutions Marketing at Cradlepoint. “This is the catalyst behind our alliance with NetMotion, the recognized leader in software-based mobile performance and operational intelligence solutions for the public safety market. Together, we are providing integration and interoperability between our network services so that first responders have a mission-critical in-vehicle network they can rely on for fast and reliable application connectivity when they need it most.”
