Cel-Fi QUATRA = Winner of the 2017 Commercial Integrator BEST Award

quatra.jpg
The Commercial Integrator magazine is “the first publication dedicated to address the business needs of professional integrators who serve the small and midsize business market. Each year, they hold their annual awards. This year, as of June 14, 2017, Nextivity’s new Cel-Fi QUATRA in-building enterprise cellular system won the 2017 Commercial Integrator BEST award. This was the top prize in its category. The Commercial Integrator annual awards recognize products and services that have a positive impact on commercial integrators’ businesses. A panel including industry experts, integrators, and editors of the Commercial Integrator magazine are the ones who select the award recipients.

The Cel-Fi QUATRA is an active DAS hybrid that is scalable, cost-efficient, and delivers high-quality, in-building cellular coverage in venues up to 200,000 sq. ft. As a hybrid solution, it combines the best of active DAS and widely adopted Cel-Fi technologies. Aside from being the only in-building solution of its kind, here are just some of the features it offers:

  • Single or multi-carrier solutions available
  • Operates in Off-Air mode with a MIMO Panel Antenna; or in Supercell™ mode (i.e., a large single cell versus multiple independent small cells), which integrates with and distributes the signal from a small cell
  • No mobile network interference
  • Highest gain solution available in the industry in Off-Air mode
  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of any in-building coverage solutions on the market today

“Cel-Fi QUATRA helps integrators and installers achieve uniform in-building cellular coverage in small to mid-size enterprise venues—a market that has been underserved until now,” said Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. He went on to say that is unlike any typical DAS system. Those make take between 1-2 years for deployment from start to finish. Whereas the Cel-Fi QUATRA can be ordered, delivered, installed, and operational in a matter of weeks. Not to mention that it’s at a much “lower installed cost per sq. ft.” There is no need for fiber or complex RF surveys and design, plus it has the ability to self-configure and self-optimize. Currently, the Cel-Fi QUATRA is much more efficient and more cost-effective to install than other solutions in the market, so check them out today and contact us for details!

Important Notices for Cradlepoint Enterprise Cloud Manager Users  June 20, 2017 
   
1st Notice

Service Name Changes 

 Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) Name Change to NetCloud Manager
On July 17, 2017, Cradlepoint will officially rename ECM to NetCloud Manager (NCM). This is a name change only, the Part Numbers, or "SKUs", will not change.

We will begin to implement the name change across our website, collateral and other systems on July 17 and will take several weeks to fully complete. There will be minimal changes in the NetCloud Manager UI. 

• Router Firmware Name Change
Beginning July 17, 2017, Cradlepoint will officially name our router firmware as Cradlepoint NetCloud Operating System (NCOS). This change will be rolled into the software UI with the release of NetCloud OS 6.4 in August.

NetCloud Email Messaging
On July 13, 2017, NetCloud Alerts currently generated from Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) will be updated with the name change to NetCloud Manager. Automated systems that consume this information may need to be updated accordingly.

For detail of exact changes click here

API endpoint calls, NCM .CSV file exports fields, and NCM reports will be unchanged. 

CP Secure Threat Management Terms of Service Update
CP Secure Threat Management Terms of Service will be updated to reflect the NetCloud Manager name change. Users will NOT need to re-accept the terms for the change.

Destination IP address used for NetCloud OS (firmware) upgrades is changing for routers not managed by NetCloud Manager (NCM)
Cradlepoint routers that are not managed by NCM (formerly ECM) check for:
- Router software updates (now called NetCloud OS
- Modem firmware updates
- New IPS signatures for CP Secure Threat Management
Through the local Router UI by connecting to a server FQDN, www.cradlepoint.com

In Q4 2017 this addressing is changing and firewall rule changes may be required.

The server’s static IP address, 54.191.205.204, will change to a dynamic IP address in Q4 2017. Customers who have configured a firewall rule to whitelist egress traffic to 54.191.205.204 will need to either change their rule to reference FQDN www.cradlepoint.com or configure their router to use a proxy server.

This change does not affect customers managing routers with NCM. The change will affect very few customers as the actual firmware downloads and IPS signatures will continue to be hosted at a CDN. 

For questions regarding these important notices, contact your Cradlepoint Support Representative: 

Phone: +1.855.813.3385 (8 am to 8 pm EST)

Introducing the SureCall Force5 2.0

 

force520kit.png

The SureCall Force5 is a self-contained five-band cellular signal booster. An alternative solution to a DAS system at a small fraction of the cost and modular in design, each Force5 provides enhanced cellular and data reception for areas of 20-25,000 square feet with up to 100 users. The Force5 combines PCS and Cellular dual-bands with LTE and AWS frequencies for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile for a complete 2G-4G voice and data reception solution. Now available, the Force5 2.0 builds on this impressive system!

 

The major upgrade the Force5 has received is built in remote monitoring via SureCall’s Sentry software. Previously the Sentry was an add on unit that was plugged into the Force5 allowing for remote monitoring, notifications, and automatic gain adjustment. The Force5 2.0 INCLUDES a built in Sentry which not only saves money upfront, installers and business owners will save money on truck rolls to adjust the booster down the line. With the new Sentry application for iPhone and Android, as well as the desktop software, management couldn’t be easier.

 

force520amp.png

The Force5 2.0 has a maximum downlink power of 17dBM, but will NOT reduce output power even if the network signal is too strong. This means you’ll always have great coverage regardless of carrier changes! The Force5 has also received LTE and VoLTE certification from V-COMM, a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) testing and certification lab for wireless carriers. This is the first VoLTE certified consumer cellular signal booster, and testing revealed excellent performance with a higher LTE data rate than any other booster on the market.

 

The Force5 2.0 comes in a variety of FCC certified kits with different antenna combinations to fit any installation. Supporting 100+ simultaneous users, this can improve signal coverage up to 25,000 sq. ft. in typical conditions, or up to 100,000 sq. ft. in ideal conditions (outside signal of -50dB and open inside areas). A standard 3 year warranty and available 5 year warranty provides peace of mind knowing your amplifier will work for years to come. Read the full SureCall press release here.

Critical Peplink & Pepwave Security Announcement - Update Now!

gal_bpl-2500.jpg

A third party research lab has informed Peplink and the CVE of several vulnerabilities found across Peplink hardware. These vulnerabilities affect devices running firmware 6.3.3 and 7.0, the most recent firmware builds available for Peplink equipment.

 

CVE-2017-8835 ~ 8840 cover the various vulnerabilities found which include SQL injection attacks, remote command execution, and more. Below are links to the CVE site with full details on each vulnerability found.

CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) maintains a collection of names and identifiers for publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities. CVE identifiers make it easy to share data across various databases and tools to provide information on vulnerabilities and to allow organizations to quickly identify potential threats as well as fixes.

 

Vulnerabilities were found in the Balance, MAX, MediaFast, and Surf SOHO product lines. Surf On The Go, AP series devices, and the Peplink Switch, are not affected. The current resolution is to upgrade the firmware of your router to the latest version (7.0.1 or 6.3.4 depending on your hardware version) as soon as possible. Below are the links for firmware downloads for various models.

 

It is critical to identify the hardware version of your device to determine which firmware version is compatible!

 

How To Find Your Hardware Version

Please note, firmware 7.0.1 RC4 and 6.3.4 are both early release firmware files as of this notice. You should weigh the risk of running non GA firmware against your need for security protection. If upgrading to one of these early builds, it is advisable to upgrade to a GA build as soon as it is available on the Peplink support site. If you are not upgrading to one of these versions, you should consider the below security steps.

 

Additional Security Steps

 

1. Switch Web Admin Access from LAN/WAN to LAN Only (System>Admin Security) - Most secure. Alternatively, limit the “Allowed Source IP Subnets” to known safe WAN IPs that you could administer the router from.

2. Because one of the vulnerabilities provides access to the devices serial number, is it recommended to create an InControl 2 account and add all of your devices to your account even if you do not intend to use InControl 2 management. This will prevent your devices from being added to an attacker's account where they could access your network.

 

Download the InControl 2 User Guide before setup!

 

Remote Device Upgrades

 

If you have Peplink equipment that is out in the field and you have access to InControl 2 (device must be in warranty OR have an active support package) you can push this file to your devices remotely. You’ll copy the URL of the applicable firmware file and log into your InControl 2 account. Click on the Group your devices are assigned to, select Settings, then Firmware Policy. Select the products you wish to upgrade and for the firmware version and select Custom, then paste in the URL.

 

3Gstore would also like to recognize Peplink and the sheer speed in which they had fixes available. Within just a few days of the CVE posting, beta firmware for current hardware as well as previous hardware versions is available. Many companies would have left the older hardware devices without a fix and simply suggested upgrading, but Peplink developed a firmware fix for EVERY device that needed it showing their commitment to their customers and doing what is right. 3Gstore has stood by Peplink year after year and this is one more reason why. Here is Peplinks forum post about the subject.

 

3Gstore has already sent out e-mail alerts to all of our customers who have purchased hardware in the affected product families, including those who purchased through 3Gstore directly as well as on 3rd party marketplaces such as Newegg, and E-Bay. We believe in going the extra mile for our customers on top of providing top notch technical support on every hardware purchase. We know a lot of other 'box pusher' companies out there will not be alerting their customers, which is why we are posting this publicly.

Sierra Wireless Wins May 2017 3Gstore Support Award for Returns & Support Stats

Going forward, 3Gstore will be publishing our winner for returns and call length by manufacturer we support. Included in this chart is Peplink / Pepwave, Cradlepoint, Sierra Wireless, NetComm Wireless, Nextivity / Cel-Fi, Wilson / WeBoost, SureCall, MobileMark Antennas, Panorama Antennas, and the IP Switch. The winner is based on RMA%, which is the total number of returns for the manufacturer in the month, as well as the average support call duration. It is important to note that the RMA column includes returns on products that we list on Amazon, which typically have a higher return rate, and not all manufacturers are sold on Amazon. Antennas typically have lower support calls and RMAs because they are as simple to install vs a router which requires configuration as well.

This month, the winner is Sierra Wireless! With ZERO RMAs this month, and an average support call duration of just 20 minutes, they are the winner along with MobileMark Antennas as they had virtually no support calls! Sierra routers like the GX450 and AirLink MP70 are feature rich while still being easy to setup and use for our customers, meaning they get out in the field and start working right away!
