BELLEVUE, WA, and BOISE, ID– May 4, 2022 — T-Mobile (Nasdaq: TMUS), home of America’s largest and fastest 5G network, and Cradlepoint, part of Ericsson (Nasdaq: ERIC), are joining forces to deliver an enterprise-grade custom-designed all-in-one 5G router for T-Mobile Business Internet customers. Together, these two industry leaders will deliver a compelling fixed wireless solution tailored to organizations that depend on fast, flexible, and secure internet with managed services for their business operations. Now, businesses with single or multiple retail, multi-tenant office, and remote work locations nationwide will be able to get T-Mobile Business Internet.
Businesses currently have limited internet options, with many internet providers offering glorified consumer internet. They need solutions that can be deployed quickly for all their locations nationwide, as well as enhanced security and management capabilities for peace of mind and control.
Enter T-Mobile Business Internet + Cradlepoint E320 all-in-one router
This new solution is the first to combine Cradlepoint’s custom-designed E320 5G router and NetCloud Service with T-Mobile's nationwide 5G footprint and managed services capabilities. The router takes minutes to install and run, bringing businesses the speed, flexibility, security, and managed services they require.
- Speed: An enterprise-grade router that is certified to take advantage of T-Mobile’s 5G spectrum to unlock the speed and reliability of 5G.
- Flexibility: With the benefits of an untethered high-speed connection, businesses will have the flexibility to quickly adapt to changes in demand — like standing up internet for pop-up locations during seasonal moments.
- Security: With the ability to leverage the E320 router and NetCloud security management features, including next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention — enterprises will have access to the most advanced security features available on the market.
- Managed Services: Cloud-delivered managed services for configuration, monitoring, and analytics. And all T-Mobile Business Internet plans are designed for business use only, not streaming movies or online gaming.
“5G offers incredible opportunities for businesses and governments to drive innovation, reinvent their operations, and transform how they serve their customers.

"5G is the essential transformational technology of our time,” said Pankaj Malhotra, Chief Product Officer at Cradlepoint.
