Instructions For Buying Cradlepoint NetCloud Licenses

Jesse Rothschild CradlePoint News, M2M World News

Cradlepoint will no longer be supplying NetCloud-related services on packages that have expired subscription licenses. On October 1st, many users of Cradlepoint packages that do not have a current subscription service will lose NetCloud Services and some NetCloud OS functionality.

Please note: once an endpoint is “Unlicensed” it will lose access to NetCloud Manager but will continue to have its last basic configuration and essential routing capabilities. In order to regain NetCloud functionality and the ability to make changes to an endpoint’s configuration settings, a current subscription service will need to be procured.

A summary statement about Cradlepoint’s license policy change can be read here:
