PHILADELPHIA, May 1, 2022 (Newswire.com) - CNI Sales, Inc. (CNI), a premier reseller and integrator of networking solutions and services, today announced that it has achieved 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialization from Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions. The 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialization identifies and recognizes partner organizations that are leaders in positioning and selling Cradlepoint's 5G for business solutions by meeting a series of sales, technical, and business proficiency criteria.
By receiving the specialization, CNI will support Cradlepoint's efforts of selling the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of 5G solutions to meet the business imperatives of availability, interoperability, security, and manageability. CNI has provided wireless solutions to a variety of industries, like education, healthcare, government, and commercial. While in the past private LTE backup met many end users' needs, the private cellular CBRS allows CNI to expand its reach. CNI's dedicated efforts toward this specialization led to becoming one of the first thirty 5G Cradlepoint partners in the United States.
"CNI started our relationship with Cradlepoint two years ago to help our existing healthcare customers with temporary COVID testing facilities. Our next step in our evolution with Cradlepoint was in a traditional sense," stated Jim Decker, Account Manager at CNI Sales. "All of our customers can use LTE backup and/or LTE primary for quick network access at a new or branch location. Today, we not only focus on Cradlepoint's traditional value, but we have also added Private LTE CBRS Private WAN into our offerings. The opening of the new private cellular spectrum options, like CBRS in the U.S., has paved the way for a powerful new option for enterprise wireless: your own private LTE and 5G network."
By combining its NetCloud platform with a clean-sheet-of-paper design for its new 5G modems and antenna systems, Cradlepoint is the first to deliver comprehensive 5G solutions for business. Specific capabilities include combining LTE, Gigabit-Class LTE, and 5G in a single wireless WAN; supporting all 5G spectrums, interoperating with existing customer SD-WAN and router infrastructures; and simplifying the entire network management lifecycle.
"Cradlepoint is committed to leading the evolution of Wireless WAN and 5G and is both the first and best choice for customers in this space," said Eric Purcell, senior vice president of global partner sales at Cradlepoint. "Our reseller, service provider, and technology partners play a crucial role in this mission. The addition of CNI Sales to our 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialization program is another important step in leading the path to 5G for business."
