Starlink or 5G — why choose?

Starlink, 5G, and LTE for Enterprise Networking
As satellite and cellular technologies progress, so do their benefits and use cases. Each has its strengths, and when paired together, a 5G solution like Cradlepoint and a low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite solution like Starlink can form a powerful tool enabling exceptional network flexibility, reliability, and performance.

FAQs about Starlink + 5G

Starlink or 5G — why choose?

In the Wireless WAN debate, some think of it as “Starlink vs. 5G.” But why ask that question when you can use both? Whether you choose LEO satellite as the primary link or backup link, pairing Starlink and Cradlepoint solutions together maximizes the potential for high-performance, incredibly reliable, and exceptionally secure WAN access. 

How to use Starlink with cellular and SD-WAN

It really isn’t rocket science. The Starlink device connects via Ethernet and IP passthrough to the Cradlepoint primary router and, voila! Multi-WAN functionality for excellent network flexibility. Using Cradlepoint NetCloud Exchange SD-WAN allows organizations to intelligently steer traffic, on a per-application basis, across satellite, cellular, and wired links. It’s a new level of wireless-optimized SD-WAN.
