High Performance Wideband

The W1850 5GB adapters are purpose-built for deployment in the new high-performance low-, mid-band 5G spectrum. To address the tradeoff of lower propagation, Cradlepoint designed the W-Series adapter to be placed separately from the router for optimal signal reception. The stylized W1850 5GB Adapter is designated for optimal indoor placement.

Designed for Enterprise-Class Business

While the performance of 5G is top of mind, the W-Series was also designed with enterprise-class standards for high scalability, comprehensive management, and security. Because 5G is a collection of new spectrum, new technologies, and new network infrastructure that is rolling out over several years, the Cradlepoint 5G edge networking service and endpoints accommodate the diverse deployments of an organization with hundreds or even tens of thousands of sites.

Performance


IP Passthrough Mode Throughput:

2.0 Gbps

Standard NAT Mode Throughput:

2.0 Gbps

Captive Modem Mode Throughput:

2.0 Gbps


Performance testing was conducted based on requirements as defined in RFC2544 using fixed-frame 1518 byte packets. Throughput results reflect uni-directional UDP traffic with less than 1% packet loss as tested with wired connections.

Results do not reflect performance of the cellular wireless operator networks.


Features/ Capabilities:

Carrier-Class Connectivity

Although each network operator conforms to 3GPP standards, they implement those standards differently to gain optimal efficiency and performance from their network. Additionally, software from modem manufacturers is designed to serve multiple operators within broad markets. The W-Series uses a customized software-defined modem, pre-programmed endpoints, and multilevel integrity testing to predict vulnerable connections and deliver carrier-class connectivity.


5G Spectrum Solutions

The W-series portfolio supports all spectrum layers ensuring that organizations have the right solution for every location. The W1850 5GB adapter supports low- and mid-band layers.
