Press Release: EXCEL / CradlePoint Partnership


EXCEL Announces New Technology Partnership

COLUMBUS, OH, Jan 6, 2014 – EXCEL Management Systems, Inc., a leading provider of information technology and business consulting services, today announces a strategic partnership with CradlePoint. 

CradlePoint technology will permit EXCEL to extend its SMB and enterprise service offerings to include the deployment of 3G/4G wireless network connectivity for both fixed and mobile computing environments with virtually no additional infrastructure costs. Existing private networks can be cost-effectively augmented with CradlePoint as a backup network for use in the event of a primary network failure. The CradlePoint router detects the failure and reroutes network traffic automatically. For businesses without a primary network infrastructure, or for applications that cannot justify the expense of network build-out, CradlePoint solutions can be easily deployed for rapid, secure access using every major wireless carrier.

Ideal fixed applications for CradlePoint technology include digital signage, guest wi-fi access, kiosk networking, point of sale terminals, and short-term networking applications such as exhibit booth connectivity and on-demand business needs. Mobile applications include emergency network access for first responders or mobile fleet management applications.

“We are delighted to kick off 2014 in partnership with CradePoint,” says Seth Stearns, Chief Operations Officer of EXCEL Management Systems. “EXCEL brings emerging technologies to our clients to solve business problems. CradlePoint is a very exciting emerging technology that fills a particular niche that our clients have been asking for: the ability to provide robust data networking at very low cost. In addition, we specialize in helping our clients develop business continuity solutions, and CradlePoint will be instrumental in offering robust network redundancy without breaking the bank.”

Tony Puopolo, CradlePoint’s Vice President of Channel and International Sales, is similarly enthusiastic. “EXCEL is an ideal partner for CradlePoint. With networking expertise and well-established clients in retail, restaurants, and the public sector, EXCEL will be instrumental in partnering to deploy robust solutions to businesses that need high-availability networking infrastructure at a competitive cost.”
