Understanding The Pros And Cons: Private Radio Vs. Cellular
Shared on March 06, 2014 written by USAT Corp. under CalAmp Industry News
Understanding the pros and cons that come with implementing both a private radio/narrowband solution versus utilizing a commercial carrier/cellular data network is integral in developing your strategy based on the needs of your organization. While a private radio/narrowband strategy offers the highest level of security, it fails to provide the data throughput available with the roll out of 3G/4G services offered through commercial networks. Building redundancy into your private network through back-up power or additional sites might ensure uptime, but could drive infrastructure costs to unsustainable levels while still not being able to meet growing bandwidth requirements. Forward thinking companies across industries are employing a strategy that uses both private and commercial networks. They are relying on private networks for mission critical operations, which are typically low-bandwidth applications, and off-loading the high-bandwidth non-critical applications to a commercial carr...

Shared on March 05, 2014 written by USAT Corp. under CradlePoint Wireless News
Release Notes for CradlePoint Rev 5.1.0 Firmware Products supported/tested: 2100 MBR1400 HW v2.0 MBR1400 MBR1200B IBR600 IBR650 CBA750B Note 1: Before upgrading to new firmware, it is always a good idea to save the configuration file from your current version. This firmware version will remove a configuration for version 3.2 or lower and will not try to keep your settings. Note 2: Revision 5.0.0 was a significant change from previous releases. Updating from prior versions to 5.0.0 through the router UI or ECM will keep all current settings. Factory resetting 5.1.0 and then re-applying a saved configuration from a pre-5.0.0 version may not reset all saved passwords correctly. Downgrading from 5.0.0 or later to an earlier version WILL force a factory reset on the router. Saving a 5.0.0 or later configuration and applying it to an earlier version will change any non-default passwords to an unknown string. Stay up-to-date with all firmware releases by visiting USAT's Fi...
