CradlePoint Makes Rover Puck by CLEAR

clear rover puck

 

You see the Rover Puck by CLEAR (SKU: CDP-PCK2005, UPC: 094922011183)?  It is a pretty cool looking new device that provides a mobile hotspot for CLEAR’s 4G (WiMAX).  We decided to take a look at the Rover Puck and see how powerful this 4G only device is (No EVDO/3G on this device).

After looking at the Admin screen (http://192.168.0.1), we noticed something very very interesting.  See the WiPipe Logo in the bottom right of the screen?  WiPipe is built into every CradlePoint router (learn more about WiPipe).  So, this means that CradlePoint is the developer of the Rover Puck!

 



The interface of the Rover Puck is unlike any current CradlePoint Router (MBR1000, MBR1200, CTR350, CTR500, PHS300, CBA250, CBA750, etc.).  What is even more interesting, is that on one of the screens in the Rover Puck is a link to how CradlePoint is using Open Source code for development.  Clicking on Licenses shows the screen below and a link to:

So, there are a few questions that this brings.

Is CradlePoint Moving To Open Source?

All current versions of CradlePoint firmware are programmed in a closed/proprietary system.  
What does this mean for existing routers that CradlePoint is shipping?
