The CradlePoint MBR1000 is a robust 802.11N router with 3G failover capability for small office/home office, temporary and remote enterprise environments for continuous, always-available connectivity. With its built-in failover capability, the MBR1000 automatically switches from wired to wireless networking when the primary ISP service is disrupted. Once service is restored, the MBR1000 will automatically failback to the primary ISP without interruption to users. Your business is always connected.

Enterprise Power, SOHO Simple
Powered by WiPipe technology, the MBR1000 includes many features found in expensive, enterprise-class routers, such as load balancing and SNMP, at a fraction of the cost with minimal set up and maintenance. No software to load means no IT interaction is necessary and you'll be up and running in minutes.

The MBR1000 supports multiple and Concurrent IPSEC, L2TP and PPTP VPN pass-through sessions. WPS Security allows quick configuration and addition of new network nodes.
Also tetherable to wide range of 3G cellular handsets via USB port for emergency backup

One other interesting feature is the ability to display GPS data from a compatible modem/headset, and export GPS data to the network.
