Australian telecommunications provider, Telstra has released its enterprise-grade 5G solutions.
Telstra enterprise customers will be able to purchase and deploy Cradlepoint 5G wireless network edge solutions – a series of adaptors and routers engineered to deliver the speed, security, reliability and manageability required by Enterprise 5G customers.
Combined with Telstra’s 5G network and Enterprise Wireless service, they complete one of the world’s most comprehensive Enterprise 5G solutions, providing a real alternative to fixed connections for organisations.
Michael Ebeid group executive at Telstra said customers within Telstra’s 5G network footprint would be able to take advantage of the game-changing benefits 5G can bring to their operations.
“5G’s faster speeds, lower latency and greater network capacity has the potential to unlock a host of innovations and market opportunities,” he said.
Ebeid said these past few months have proved that mobility and adaptability are vital for all businesses.
“The ability to quickly power up a fast, reliable and powerful connectivity solution, when and where you need it, can mean the difference of being up and running in hours, not weeks,” he said.
“A 5G network rollout means wireless connectivity is a viable opportunity for a range of industries from construction to financial services to government.”
Telstra will be launching Cradlepoint’s portfolio of 5G network edge solutions:
- W2000 Series 5G Wideband Adapters – A choice of indoor or rugged outdoor integrated modem and antenna systems for 5G mobile access.
- E3000 Series – All-in-one 5G-optimised edge routers for small to midsized branches requiring advanced routing, SD-WAN and advanced security functionality at full 5G speeds.
- E300 Series – All-in-one 5G-ready edge routers for pop-up and smaller branch sites (to be launched later this quarter)
These 5G wireless edge endpoints will be powered by Telstra’s network and Enterprise Wireless service, enabling Enterprise customers in 5G coverage areas with the power of 5G while providing a host of powerful management tools. In non-5G areas, customers will switch to 4G/4GX coverage where available.
Purpose-built for LTE and 5G branch networking and controlled via the Cradlepoint NetCloud service, Branch, Mobile and IoT use-cases, all edge routers include cloud-based network connection management, routing and security as well as Telstra’s Managed Service, which includes professional services, device installation and setup, lifecycle management and service assurance.
