COVINGTON, KY, March 28, 2023--STEP CG, Where Innovation Meets Execution, today announced that it has achieved NetCloud Private Networks Specialization from Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network solutions. The NetCloud Private Networks Specialization identifies and recognizes partner organizations have become experts in Private Cellular Network deployments by meeting a series of sales, technical, and business proficiency criteria. 

By receiving the specialization, STEP CG will support Cradlepoint’s efforts of selling the industry’s most comprehensive and seamless portfolio for private cellular deployments. As an award-winning IT engineering firm specializing in solutions powered by strategic experts and best-of-breed technologies, STEP CG absolutely believes in the explosive market opportunity they collectively have in front of them in helping their customers innovate every day by embracing the 5G revolution – because reducing complexity and driving real business outcomes is at the heart and soul of STEP CG’s mission for customers.

“We greatly appreciate the teamwork and strong partnership with Cradlepoint and are excited to be recognized as one of the first partners to achieve a NetCloud Private Networks Specialization designation,” said Ed Walton, CEO of STEP CG. “Receiving this specialization speaks to our extensive 5G experience and capabilities, helping customers embrace innovation and showing them how to integrate with existing networking technologies,” added Walton.

With NetCloud Private Networks, certified Cradlepoint channel partner can help enterprise customers quickly deploy a complete private cellular networks solution that includes: a proven Mobility Gateway (cellular core) that can be deployed on-site; plug-and-play indoor or outdoor LTE Cellular Access Points (CAPs) with future support for 5G; an integrated planning tool that helps map out the ideal location of CAPs; fixed site, mobile and IoT endpoints (User Equipment); and private SIMs with Cradlepoint’s SIM Management capability, allowing IT to deploy and manage private and public SIMs.

“The demand for private cellular networks has quickly increased, but due to the significant cost, planning, and complexity, deployments have lagged,” said Eric Purcell, senior vice president of global partner sales at Cradlepoint. “By creating another world-class certification program for identified partners, Cradlepoint and industry leading partners like STEP CG will be able to accelerate successful deployments and create a positive customer experience.”
