Comm-Works announced today it has partnered with Cradlepoint, the global leader in 4G LTE networking solutions for distributed enterprises, to provide retail customers with a readily available private wireless network. Comm-Works will leverage this business continuity technology and rapidly deploy these cloud-managed devices, providing their customers with constant, reliable connectivity.

Internet connectivity can be compromised for a number of reasons, including lightning storms, nearby digging, operator error in the provider's central office, inclement weather around poorly built telecom facilities, etc. For retailers, if Internet connectivity is lost even for a short period of time, especially during high-traffic periods, it can be detrimental to the bottom line. Jacob Pomplun, VP of Marketing for Comm-Works, stated, "We established this partnership to fill a need for our customers. As they have been rapidly adapting cloud-managed devices we needed to identify a dependable failover solution, virtually eliminating their vulnerability to losing connectivity."

Comm-Works utilizes Cradlepoint when installing temporary retail locations for their customers and as an operational precaution. As a global technology integrator, Comm-Works has been noticing a heavy shift within the technologies customers are installing toward cloud-managed solutions.

"Cradlepoint evolves its solution portfolio to address the advancing connectivity needs of distributed enterprises. For retailers, that includes high-availability, security, failover and cloud-based management," said Ryan Adamson, chief revenue officer for Cradlepoint. "We value our relationships with partners, like Comm-Works, because they work closely with their customers and provide valuable insight on the latest networking challenges and how Cradlepoint can help overcome them. We look forward to working with Comm-Works and expanding the reach of advanced 4G LTE wireless solutions."
