 Option Cloudgate 4G Ships September 10th!


M2M Flexability

Beginning Wednesday, September 10th, the new Option Cloudgate M2M Cellular Gateway 3G/4G version will be available to ship through This is a product that has been long desired by many of our customers because of it’s versatility and ability to adjust to different M2M situations.

Most embedded modems are “carrier specific,” meaning that if you have multiple carriers you either need two modems in your router, or two separate devices entirely. For some time we have carried the Option Cloudgate 3G, which has provided the single modem functionality, but lacking the speed of world’s 4G networks. 4G LTE is important for many consumers who need access to the fastest network available to keep business operations efficient. The Option Cloudgate 3G/4G will provide the best of both options, covering 4G LTE bands 4/13/17 which include Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Telus and Rogers. It also supports Global GSM providers using HSPA+ 800/850/900/1900/2100Mhz and even AWS 1700/2100Mhz.

The Option Cloudgate 3G/4G provides the function of being used as a rugged M2M solution. This may be perfect for those who make use of applications like Point-of-Sale, Kiosks, Digital Signage or ATMs. The device is sturdily built and compact, allowing for mounted or enclosed applications, while the GPS features make it an ideal choice for a mobile scenario.

The “expansion slots” and lengthy accessories page will allow you to customize your Cloudgate to perfectly fit your needs. The device includes two expansion ports so customers can select expansions based on their personal applications. These options include:

CTIA 2014

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today announced that the Sierra Wireless AirPrime EM7345 embedded wireless module is now certified to operate on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. This is part of the third generation of 4G LTE modules from Sierra Wireless, which first launched embedded modules on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network three years ago. The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is the largest in the U.S., available to more than 97 percent of the population.

“With the latest AirPrime embedded module from Sierra Wireless, OEMs have a high-quality, cost-efficient option to choose in integrating connectivity to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network,” said John Sullivan, Executive Director of the Connected Solutions group for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “Sierra Wireless has been working with OEMs to connect devices to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network since it was first deployed, and we are pleased to be able to expand the choices available to manufacturers looking to integrate connectivity to the Verizon Wireless network into their products.”

The AirPrime EM7345, based on an Intel chipset, is designed for integration into notebook computers and tablets, with a standardized M.2 form factor ideal for small, thin devices.

ATT 4G LTE network now reaches 300 Million People


DALLAS, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* announced today that its 4G LTE network – the nation's most reliable -- now reaches more than 300 million Americans.**

"The strong performance we saw in our mobility business in the second quarter is continuing, not only because of our new service and device plans, but because more customers can get it all on a fast, reliable 4G LTE network that now covers more than 300 million Americans," said Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman and CEO. "Great service and strong customer loyalty begin with having a great mobile network for customers where they live. That's our number one priority and that's why our mobile business is hitting on all cylinders."      

AT&T's 4G LTE build out reached 300 million people months ahead of the yearend 2014 objective the company announced as part of its Project VIP plan in November 2012. Since then, wireless data traffic on AT&T's nationwide network has increased 2.5 times. With its Project VIP plan, AT&T is supporting its customers' growing desire for mobile, ultra-fast and reliable access to everything on the Internet, particularly video.

Over the past six years (2008 to 2013), AT&T has invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks, including acquisitions of spectrum and wireless operations.  During that same period, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company.

Sprint Reaches 4G LTE Roaming Agreements with 15 Additional Rural Carriers

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), September 05, 2014 - Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced that it has reached 4G LTE agreements with 15 additional rural and regional network carriers as part of the Rural Roaming Preferred Provider program it announced with Competitive Carriers Association earlier this year. The program gives smaller carriers a clear path forward to high speed mobile broadband solutions by providing the carriers low-cost access to Sprint’s nationwide 4G LTE network and an opportunity to access an expanded range of mobile devices.

Including the new agreements, the program now includes 27 carriers, extending coverage in 27 states, over 565,000 square miles and a population of more than 38 million people. The 15 carriers joining the program are:

  • Bluegrass Cellular, serving Kentucky
  • Blue Wireless, serving New York and Pennsylvania
  • Pine Belt Wireless, serving Alabama
  • Pioneer Cellular, serving Oklahoma and Kansas
  • Public Service Wireless, serving Alabama and Georgia
  • Syringa Wireless, serving Idaho
  • Rural Independent Network Alliance (RINA) members and their partners:
    • STRATA Networks, serving Utah, Wyoming and Colorado
    • Silver Star Wireless, serving Wyoming and Idaho
    • All West Wireless Inc., serving Wyoming and Utah
    • NNTC, serving Colorado
    • Snake River Personal Communications Service, serving Oregon
    • CTC Telecom Inc., serving Idaho
    • South Central Communications Inc., serving Utah
    • Custer Telephone Wireless, serving Idaho
    • Breakaway Wireless, serving Utah

These agreements increase wireless competition by accelerating the deployment and utilization of 4G LTE across the U.S. where the cost of building such networks and the roaming costs are often prohibitively expensive. In addition to reducing roaming costs for carriers and improving competition, the Rural Roaming Preferred Provider program broadens Sprint’s coverage footprint by giving its customers the ability to roam on participating carriers’ networks.

“In just a few short months, Sprint has made significant progress by signing agreements covering 27 regional carriers that serve millions of people across the country,” said Michael C. Schwartz, Sprint senior vice president of Corporate and Business Development. “By working together, we will bring mobile broadband and better wireless devices to underserved communities while expanding 4G LTE coverage for Sprint customers.”

CCA Device Hub

As part of the program, Sprint is working with CCA, Brightstar Corp. and carriers to support a device ecosystem in which carriers may pursue access to a broad portfolio of 4G LTE devices. Leveraging Sprint’s scale can lower costs, improve time to market and expand the portfolio of devices available to regional carriers. Beginning in 2015, Sprint will make devices more compatible with regional carriers’ networks by adding support for additional spectrum bands including the AWS and lower 700MHz spectrum that are used by CCA member carriers. Sprint will also support device changes that allow regional carriers to provision, manage and brand devices independently through CCA’s Device Hub. Participating carriers will be able to work directly with Brightstar, which will be the exclusive distributor for device access and distribution.

CCA Roaming Hub

In addition, Sprint is collaborating with CCA on the Data Access Hub that serves as a clearinghouse for participating members to complete simple, commercially-sustainable and individually-negotiated reciprocal roaming agreements with CCA member operators. The CCA Data Access Hub expands collaboration opportunities among carriers, eases roaming implementation across carriers and makes it easier and less costly to expand 4G LTE coverage.

CCA’s President and CEO Steven K. Berry said, “I am very pleased Sprint has signed agreements with 15 additional carriers and is committed to working with smaller rural and regional carriers. Competitive carriers must have a pathway to 4G LTE technologies, and Sprint’s solution will help them achieve this critical goal. I encourage every CCA member to look at Sprint’s program, and I look forward to our continued work with Sprint on CCA’s Data Access Hub and Device Hub, which will bring numerous additional benefits to competitive carriers and their consumers. This innovative approach will allow small carriers to remain vibrant, independent competitors in the marketplace.”


NetAmerica Alliance and Sprint continue their aggressive march toward delivering SMART (Small Market Alliance for Rural Transformation) to rural carriers. This previously announced initiative is a shared network alliance which provides participating rural carriers the capabilities they need to build and run 4G LTE mobile networks and to compete in the delivery of 4G LTE mobile broadband services to their communities.

“SMART has been aggressively embraced by rural carriers looking to build networks, expand their reach and deliver on the promise of 4G LTE mobile broadband,” said Roger Hutton, NetAmerica CEO and Chairman. “Since announcing the initiative, we have signed preliminary agreements with approximately 20 carriers interested in building out over 300,000 square miles of network. In addition we continue to work with dozens of others carriers in multiple states to match their specific business expansion goals to the SMART program.”

Cradlepoint customers deploy parallel networking to gain advantage


Parallel networking is how many organizations are defining, creating and managing their corporate networks for distributed locations, said Woodruff. Organizations of all sizes are moving 3rd party, vendor, guest and generally less trusted networks off of their secure core where they control the client behavior, access and security posture. I am excited to share the benefits of parallel networking and the influence that it has on a company's bottom line with this years CAMP IT audience.

A leading research firm that is focused on enterprise technology and market trends recently published that by 2016 nearly a third of all advanced targeted threats will use the branch office as an entry point. Once a foothold is established within the branch office, hackers then pivot towards either corporate systems or the point of sale systems, which results in a compromised network and negative impact to the organizations bottom line and brand. Parallel networking isolates specific applications and their networks, creating physical air gaps between networks, which in turn prevents pivot attacks. The adoption of parallel networks allows organizations to tighten their security and improve business continuity to keep pace with the ever-increasing demands placed upon corporate networks.

An example of parallel networking within a modern retail outlet illustrates the immediate value that such a network provides to a distributed enterprise. A retail chains IT department is tasked with developing and deploying a cohesive and secure network infrastructure that supports the retail outlet at the networks edge. Specific applications that rely on wireless connectivity include point of sale systems, customer and employee WiFi, digital signage, HVAC systems, security, etc., all which help the business run more efficiently. CradlePoints ability to harness the speeds of 4G LTE with its suite of networking solutions and Enterprise Cloud Manager, CradlePoints cloud-based, network management solution, allows organizations to better manage and deploy a parallel networking architecture from a centralized location. CradlePoints customers have come to rely upon Enterprise Cloud Manager to allow administrators with enhanced policy management to immediately access and monitor network devices using wireless connectivity with zero-touch deployments, seamless firmware updates and instant optimization. This type of management within a parallel networking architecture results in improved business operations, secure networking and better control over the entire network.

InControl 2 Extended Support and New AP One Models



Last week we told you about the impressive new AP One AC Mini , the latest wirless access point from Pepwave. This device is compact and powerful, supports 2x2 802.11ac/a/b/g/n simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi, and can be powered by standard AC or 802.3af PoE. Today, we have more information on a second Pepwave AP, as well as information on InControl 2 support.



First, the access point. The new device is called the AP One In-Wall. While this does not have Wireless AC built in, it can run at 802.11b/g/n at 600Mbps. While not the 1200Mbps of the AP One AC Mini, 600Mbps is plenty of speed for the average office as long as there are no major file transfers of multiple GB at a time. Named the AP One In-Wall for a reason, this AP mounts in a standard US single gange wall jack. You can then power this by power over ethernet or a standard AC adapter. Built into the AP One In-Wall is a 4 port ethernet switch, giving you easy accessibility to the network wired or wireless from any room in a home or office. Imagine your Peplink Balance router powering the network, and an AP One In-Wall in remote offices in the building. Each office could have a powerful 600Mbps WiFi connection, as well as 4 ethernt ports for wired access!

Pepwaves InControl 2 cloud management suite now supports the new AP One models, as well as previous models that were only supported on the older InControl 1 platform. InControl 2 gives you the power to be your own IT department without any complex knowledge required. Rapidly customize multiple devices at once, located anywhere in the world, from a single login page. You can pull comprehensive bandwidth reports to monitor usage on the network, update WiFi SSID and passwords, push firmware upgrades, and customize captive portals with company logos, splash screens, and terms and conditions.

To get started with Peplinks InControl 2 support on the AP One family, you'll need to download firmware 3.4.1, then create a free InControl account.
