Cradlepoint E300 (5G Capable) Router Unboxing Video

Welcome to another unboxing video sponsored by ConnectUs.

Today we will look at the Cradlepoint E300 Cellular Router. This device is a part of the Cradlepoint branch deployment series of fixed wireless routers and adapters, along with the W2005, E3000, and the W1850.

This particular device is the compact brother of the powerful E3000. Each of these branch-tailored routers has standardized C-band support, NetCloud management, and robust hardware inside.

Each of these branch-tailored routers support all major US carriers, has standardized C-band support, NetCloud management, and robust hardware inside.

The E300 unit is an indoor device, along with the E3000 and W1850, while the W2005 unit is outdoor, but all support the Cradlepoint Captive Modem feature, which allows an external, ethernet connected modem to be placed closer to the signal source.

This is perfect for scenarios where the router would live in a low signal strength area. The Cradlepoint NetCloud Enterprise Branch Service with E300 Series Router is ideally suited for providing 4G and 5G cellular connectivity, agile VPN security, and cellular optimized SD-WAN to pop-up temporary locations, branches, stores, and clinics.

Cradlepoint NetCloud Service for the E300 provides everything needed to unlock the power of LTE at the network edge and connect users and IoT devices to critical applications and services.

The cloud capabilities include group policy definition, reports, troubleshooting, and analytics dashboards. NetCloud Manager delivers true zero-touch deployment with the ability to define and deliver policy across entire groups of endpoints.

Users can create a cloud-orchestrated hub and spoke VPN network and gain insights and analytics required for rapid troubleshooting and diagnostic workflows. Using the Netcloud manager, you are able to set cutting edge security practices, complex routing and tunneling and robust failover redundancy with little difficulty.

This device boasts end to end device security through open VPN, access control, encrypted configuration, monitoring, threat alerts, hacker prevention, and password protection along with many more advanced security features.

The E300 is equipped with a variety of connections to handle nearly any networking scenario. Choose from a Cat 7 (2×2 MIMO) or Cat 18 (4×4 MIMO) modem. Meaning it will accept a future 5G compatible modem or a current MC400 module. It is further equipped with an internal 5-port Ethernet switch, one 10 Gigabit SFP slot for a fiber optic run, and 2×2 MIMO 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi 6.

The Cradlepoint E300 has a modem expansion slot that is 5G-optimized, being 5G upward compatible offers investment protection when the next generation of networks roll out.

The Cradlepoint NetCloud for Branch with E300 Series Enterprise Router is best suited for pop-up temporary locations, branches, stores, and clinics, as well as many others.

Ideally when combined with the need for security services at scale with performance. The all-in-one form factor includes full-featured routing, security, switching with PoE ports and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect branches to the Internet and critical applications without the need for extra hardware or complicated configurations.
