Overview:

The purpose-built adapter

Cradlepoint endpoints provide industry-leading, Gigabit-Class LTE connectivity as well as Ethernet and Wi-Fi. These purpose-built endpoints are sold with a subscription to NetCloud Service for Branch Continuity which provides streamlined configuration and continuous cloud, modem, and adapter software feature enhancements.


The Cradlepoint CBA850 Series LTE Adapter is a turnkey branch continuity solution for Gigabit-Class LTE failover that integrates seamlessly with existing network and SD-WAN infrastructure. Using secure wireless access, the CBA850 Adapter provides the ability to extend management capability to any primary router Out-of-Band without the need for a wired connection. Equipped with Power-over-Ethernet for flexible, unobtrusive placement anywhere to optimize cellular reception, this powerful solution reduces truck rolls, consolidates infrastructure, and maximizes uptime for businesses that require always-on connectivity.

Notable Features

  • Maximize network uptime using non-intrusive, easy to install overlay failover.
  • Elastic Wideband technology for exceptional cellular connectivity.
  • Power-over-Ethernet placement flexibility.
  • Utilize Day-1 connectivity while waiting for terrestrial links.
  • Manage the Cradlepoint router and LTE adapter as one entity for singular control and visibility.
  • Troubleshoot adapter and in-line devices with advanced Out-of-Band Management to reduce truck rolls.
  • Offload primary connections during traffic surges and network congestion.

High Performance LTE for Failover Link Diversity

LTE wireless WANs provide a powerful, flexible, and cost-effective failover option to minimize disruption in the event of an outage. Working in conjunction with an existing router or SD-WAN, the CBA850 Adapter establishes a cellular connection based on established failover policies. With this adapter, many remote location operations and applications continue functioning while in failover.

Day-1 Connectivity for Rapid Deployment

Establish secure network connections to get operations running while waiting for a wired connection. CBA850 Adapters uniquely connect through LTE independently of the primary link so they do not require prior connection through wired networks. Cradlepoint wireless broadband solutions can be set up in hours with zero-touch deployment without IT staff on location, so local personnel can set up the network. Once the wired link is established, the CBA850 Adapter falls into backup mode.

Features and Benefits:

Key Software Capabilities

The NetCloud Service provides everything needed to unlock the power of LTE at the network edge and connect devices to critical applications and services. It enables customers to build and manage wireless WANs with complete lifecycle management, true zero-touch deployment, robust security, and foundational SD-WAN traffic management for optimal application performance and reliability. The service includes a warranty for as long as an active subscription on the router, online training, live and online support, and all software and firmware updates.


Out-of-Band Management

To mitigate the effects of an unreachable router, the CBA850 Adapter offers efficient, advanced Out-of-Band Management. Network administrators can connect to the router and other in-line devices over the air, even if IP and Ethernet are unavailable on the router, improving uptime and reducing truck rolls.

* Cellular carriers and operators throughout the world may only require telecom industry certifications, like PTCRB or GCF, to operate on their network. Some carriers require additional testing and approval, beyond telecom certifications. A carrier listed in the approvals section means Cradlepoint completed additional testing and acquired technical approval for that given carrier. Any carrier not listed may not require additional testing or approval beyond telecom industry certifications to operate on their network.
