CradlePoint NetCloud OS

Digital transformation demands a Network Edge that is always available, flexible, and agile. Cradlepoint’s NetCloud OS (NCOS) offers advanced routing and security features for branch, mobile, and M2M/IoT—and seamlessly connects to NetCloud Manager for zero-touch and Day-1 deployments.

NCOS’s advanced VPN and encryption provides better security for local and remote connections from IKEv2 with mobile to Suite B Compliance, NCOS has the features to keep the network secure. NCOS also supports optional services such as IDS/IPS and content filtering that deliver basic Unified Threat Management (UTM) for today’s business-critical networks.

Connection Manager, Smart WAN Selection, and Auto-QoS deliver SD-WAN functionality optimized for multi-WAN deployments—combining wired and LTE to enable automated management and reduce costs.

NCOS is consistently updated so your business-critical enterprise networks are always secure. This creates a flexible, always available infrastructure for branch offices, vehicles, or M2M/IoT devices—or a combination of all three.
