CradlePoint CBR400/CBR450
CradlePoint Compact Broadband Routers, CBR400 with WiFi,
and CBR450 with no WiFi radio, provide advanced support for
distributed operations and emerging industries that require
flexible, reliable and secure Internet access such as temporary
Internet installations, additional network bandwidth or for
kiosks, digital signage, and other machine-to-machine (M2M)
The CradlePoint CBR400/CBR450 is a feature-rich business
router in a small package. Built for business applications like
travel, mobile workgroups, or remote Internet access, you can
rely on CradlePoint’s advanced networking features like WiPipe
security, firewall, VPN termination, VLAN support, data usage
management and alerts, IP passthrough, and failover/failback
(persistent connectivity in case primary data service fails) keeping your business online. Standard on the CBR400 are
additional security features for WiFi such as multiple encryption
modes (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Personal and Enterprise) and
preconfigured security, which prevent unauthorized use of your
3G/4G mobile broadband routers are helping power the
future of business. Digital signage, kiosks, utility and sensor
monitoring, in-home health care, video surveillance, remote or
teleworker offices, mobile fleet vehicles, point of sale
systems, and corporate branch offices need reliable
connections to the Internet without a lot of associated
infrastructure costs. CradlePoint routers connect your
business to 3G/4G mobile broadband with simplicity and
ease, giving you multiple connection options and data
•  Increase network availability with WiPipe™-powered
automatic failover/failback connection reliability
•  Protect access and transactions with IPsec VPN
termination (tunnel, NAT-T, and transport)
•  Isolate, segment and secure your network with VLAN
•  Improve communication performance with wireless 2x2
MIMO “N” WiFi (802.11 b/g/n – CBR400 only)
•  Create a customized hotspot with our captive portal feature
(include TOS, Ads, etc. – CBR400 only)
CradlePoint routers provide plug-and-play connections for the
most popular 3G/4G modems from: AT&T, Verizon Wireless,
Sprint, T-Mobile, Bell Canada, Clearwire, Rogers, US Cellular
and Virgin Mobile. (Modem and mobile broadband data plans
