Integration of Pertino technology enables Cradlepoint’s SMB, enterprise and carrier customers to rapidly deploy software-defined overlay network services to support 4G-driven mobility, M2M, IoT and security-related initiatives.
Cradlepoint, the global leader in software-defined 4G LTE network solutions for enterprises, announced today that it has acquired Pertino, a privately held Silicon Valley company that pioneered the use of software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver cloud-based networks as-a-service for enterprise and small-to-medium business (SMB) customers worldwide. The move enables Cradlepoint to leverage Pertino’s cloud platform and deep technical expertise to bring the benefits of SDN to 4G LTE, broadband and MPLS wide-area networks (WANs) for SMB, enterprise, government and carrier organizations. This acquisition will allow Cradlepoint to quickly address the emerging opportunity for software-defined enterprise network solutions and services. Financial details regarding the acquisition were not announced.
Cloud, mobile and IoT are driving the need for a new enterprise WAN, one that overlays the Internet and provides always-on connectivity for people, places and things—anywhere. 4G LTE has rapidly become the preferred means to keep everything and everyone connected because of the agility, speed and reliability it provides. While 4G has become the WAN access of choice for a wide variety of market segments and applications, it is quickly becoming a requisite component of the CIO’s enterprise expansion and service delivery plans. The addition of the Pertino technology and team strengthens Cradlepoint’s efforts to enable private, wireless virtual networks over the public Internet with virtualized services that run in the cloud and CPE to provide the end-to-end visibility, security and control enterprises need.
