Cradlepoint W1850 5G Wideband Adapter Unboxing

Cradlepoint W1850 5G Wideband Adapter Overview

Hello and welcome to the ConnectUs sponsored unboxing video for the Cradlepoint W1850 indoor adapter. This device is a part of the Cradlepoint fixed wireless routers along with the W2005, E300, and the E3000. Each of these routers have different specifications and would be used in different situations. Each of the group would be at home in a branch deployment, and each has the coveted C-band certification from Verizon. The C-band is considered by most as the sweet spot for 5G communications, blending the right amount of throughput and propagation. All of the family can support all of the major cellular carriers. The W1850 unit is an indoor device, while the W2005 units are outdoor, but both 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. Due to their fast 5g speeds, compact size, superior connectivity and security, it is the perfect LAN router for restaurants, retailers, homes, dorms, apartments, medical clinics, and branch offices.
