Solution can work off the 4G LTE network or even a wired connection if there is interference in the area
ChargeItSpot has selected Cradlepoint’s 4G LTE technology to connect its phone charging stations which can be found in retailers, malls, arenas, hospitals and casinos.
The network solutions provider claims by leveraging its COR series, every ChargeItSpot kiosk has “trustworthy connectivity” to ensure customer phones remain safely charging, for instance, while they stay in the store to shop.
The solutions also provide secure, reliable VPN functionality to keep data safe as it travels to and from these dispersed kiosks on an entirely separate ChargeItSpot network, said Cradlepoint. This allows the store or venue’s network to be virtually untouched.
“Our biggest hurdle was providing the connectivity necessary to power the key applications running in our kiosks without connecting through our clients’ internal networks. Ultimately, we went with Cradlepoint because its solutions are durable, secure, and provide the connectivity we need at anytime, anywhere,” said Robert Kay, senior vice president of operations, ChargeItSpot.
“The flexibility of Cradlepoint is simply unmatched, as it can work off the 4G LTE network or even a wired connection if there is interference in the area. We never have to worry about a kiosk going offline because of a connectivity issue.”
“Cradlepoint is committed to providing secure, reliable, and scalable solutions that make connectivity simple. For businesses like ChargeItSpot, that means having remote connectivity that can reach the right location for a retailer while also eliminating security risks,” added Ian Pennell, chief marketing officer at Cradlepoint.
“We ensure that connections work when and where they are needed so our customers can worry less about their networks and can stay focused on meeting their business goals.”
Cradlepoint NetCloud is a software and services platform that extends the company’s 4G LTE-enabled multi-function routers and ruggedised M2M/IoT gateways with cloud-based management and software-defined network services.
