Helping employees work from home is as challenging as it is essential. Equipping mission-critical workers with their own laptop, printer, and other work from home technology isn’t enough — especially if they’re using a wired consumer router. They need a reliable, high-bandwidth, and easy-to-deploy work from home router that provides a dedicated Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) network solution and enables the IT team to centrally manage WAN and LAN connectivity, cybersecurity measures, and applications. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for SOHO and wireless edge routers unlock the power of LTE and 5G for efficiently managed remote work from anywhere.

For organizations that have critical employees working outside the office, providing high-performance connections to the Internet or crucial applications without compromising security is vital. Using advanced cellular wireless and cloud-based management, Cradlepoint’s Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) solutions deliver enterprise-class connectivity plus security to help mission-critical employees remain productive and protected outside the office. Instead of depending on solutions that rely on uneven levels of household networking equipment, Cradlepoint offers a secure, dedicated wireless connection that is fully isolated from the user’s uncontrollable home network.

Providing reliable bandwidth and security

A financial service firm needed to have mission-critical customer representatives work from homes and remote locations. Representatives needed to be able to have dedicated connectivity apart from home networks due to security and privacy regulations.

Additionally, these representatives needed their remote office to offer secure Wi-Fi, voice, and data with access to both corporate and cloud-based applications. These applications needed to run smoothly to offer the best experience when agents spoke with customers.

The firm recognized that the critical security requirements would surpass the capabilities offered by Mi-Fi, and that the dedicated network connection provided further segmentation benefits to isolate work assets. They chose Cradlepoint NetCloud for SOHO.

Isolate work devices

Segment and isolate work devices — computers, printers, and more — from household networks and devices. A separate, dedicated WWAN network ensures high performance for key applications and provides a natural layer of asset and information protection.
