CradlePoint ARC MBR1400 & ARC CBA750 First Look

CradlePoint has recently begun shipping a new 3G/4G integrated solution called the ARC MBR1400LE (PN MBR1400LE-VZ) and ARC CBA750LE (PN CBA750LE-VZ) . CradlePoint has taken their most powerful 3G/4G Router and added an integrated modem cap that supports 4G LTE (and 3G too).  The advantages of this type of solution are that CradePoint controls the whole internet connection, there are no modem drivers and/or firmware upgrades to deal with.  In fact, when you plug in the 3G/4G Modem cap, the MBR1400 automatically connects, you do not have to do anything.

The first step is to get an activated Verizon LTE 4G SIM.  When you purchase your CradlePoint ARC via, we give you the option to included an activated SIM with your order.  If you already have a UML290, USB551L, VL600 or MiFI 4510L, this is the same SIM, so you can easily upgrade to the ARC product and just insert your existing 4G SIM (different then a 3G SIM).


Once you have an activated SIM, next, you insert it into the 4G LTE Modem Cap:

Be sure that the 4G SIM clicks in place (spring mount and spring eject).

Next attach the LTE Modem Cap to the CradlePoint MBR1400 router, attach the antennas and plug the router into the wall.  Note, the flat/blade antennas (qty 2) are the ones that attach to the modem cap and the 3 other antennas are for WiFi and attach to the MBR1400.  Another added advantage, is that with the robust antenna connectors, it is very east to add external antennas to the ARC solution.

Once connected, you do not have to do anything, the MBR1400 will automatically sense that you have an activated SIM and just connect. You will see in the dashboard that you are automatically connected:

Here are speeds that we have been able to get consistently with the ARC MBR1400:

The CradlePoint ARC solution builds on the robust and popular MBR1400 router and adds an integrated Verizon LTE 4G modem cap.  While this may be more expensive then purchasing a USB modem, it does offer many advantages, which include:
  • More robust / potentially faster speeds
  • being able to secure the modem (nobody can walk away with USB Modem). Special screws included to make it very difficult to remove the modem
  • easy accessibility and more robust way to add external antennas
  • a very robust failover solution for any existing network (great for retail failover)

The MBR1400 adds a full featured router solution, while the CBA750 adds an IP Pass Through solution which is easier to install into existing networks.  If you are interested and would like more info, contact
