In an effort to keep branch, mobile and IoT networks safer and uninterrupted, Tech Data (TECD) today announced a partnership with Cradlepoint — an industry leader in cloud-delivered, low-latency 4G LTE and 5G cellular networking solutions for business and government organizations — to distribute the company’s NetCloud Solution Packages to Cradlepoint-authorized resellers in the U.S. These new packages simplify how to buy, consume, evolve and support edge networks. Cradlepoint solutions will provide Tech Data partners enhanced wireless networking capabilities that easily support technologies like IoT and 5G.

“Cradlepoint delivers a state-of-the-art solution for agile, pervasive and software-driven wireless WANs that leverage 4G and 5G to connect people, places and things everywhere,” said Linda Rendleman, senior vice president, product marketing, endpoint solutions, at Tech Data. “With this partnership, our end-user customers can access mission-critical wireless technology that delivers visibility, security and control for enterprise and public safety applications.”
