Cradlepoint will make firmware available to all as of 5/5/15 - subscription no longer required

cradlepoint logo

In a surprising reversal of the policy that has been in effect since late last year, Cradlepoint has announced that as of May 5th customers will be able to download firmware releases any time without having to pay for one of Cradlepoint's support licenses. Since December of 2014 Cradlepoint had required customers to purchase a subscription to their Enterprise Cloud Manager service or CradleCare support to access firmware updates, a policy that was overwhelmingly unpopular. Customers were very vocal about their displeasure, and Cradlepoint took notice. 
In a letter to Cradlepoint partners, CEO George Mulhern explained:
"Over the past few months, we’ve spent a great deal of time listening. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback that has helped shape our best-in-class WWAN technology to meet and exceed your customers’ expectations. We have also heard you loud and clear about your customers’ concerns regarding firmware updates, and want to make sure you have everything you need to continue to win in the marketplace and keep your customers loyal and happy.

To that end, with the release of Firmware 5.4, Cradlepoint will no longer require customers to have Enterprise Cloud Manager or CradleCare Support to access firmware updates. Beginning on May 5, 2015, all of your customers will have access to firmware updates as part of their relationship with you, and your relationship with us."
Cradlepoint's next firmware release, version 5.4, will be available to all customers on May 5.

Sprint Offers Free Roaming Data with a Catch

As of two years ago, T-Mobile announced that their unlimited data plans would include International data and text messaging in over 120 countries at no extra charge. Now it seems that Sprint is following suit yet again in efforts to keep up with their competitor. However, there’s a bit of a catch with Sprint’s plans. If you want to use data in Latin America, Europe or Japan, you’ll be limited to slower 2G speeds.

Luckily, users can upgrade to 3G data capability, however, you’re going to have to pay for it (not to mention, T-Mobile’s offer includes LTE data). A one-day pass will get you 100MB data for $15. $25 gets you a seven-day pass for 200MB data, or you can pay $50 for a two-week pass with 500MB data.

According to Sprint’s chief executive Marcelo Claure, this is only the beginning and they will continuously be adding new countries. He also said in a recent announcement that unlimited text messaging is included at no extra cost, and voice calls cost 20 cents per minute. In comparison, T-Mobile is offering voice calls for the same amount.

New SimplyBonding Throughput Tiers


SimplyBonding is a hosting service that allows you to bond multiple 3G, 4G, cable, and/or DSL internet connections into one super fast, super reliable, unbreakable connection with minimal equipment. Unlike failover or load balancing, a bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them. The resulting connection is both faster and more reliable: if you have 3 internet connections that are bonded together and one goes down, your connected devices and apps will never know there was a failure - even apps that maintain persistent connections! 

simplybonding_graphic.jpg 
 
The concept of bonding (AKA aggregating) internet connections has been around for years, but it has historically been prohibitively expensive and very complicated to deploy and manage. SimplyBonding solves both of those problems. Unlike other bonding options that require two expensive bonding routers in two locations with access to high-speed internet (one at the location where you need the bonded connection, and another at a secondary location with a high-speed internet connection to bond the connections and send the data back to the primary location via VPN), SimplyBonding eliminates the need for this dual-router setup. SimplyBonding requires just ONE router, which will be configured to connect to our hosted service - WE handle the bonding and VPN for you, and 90% of the setup and configuration is eliminated.

With a low start up cost and new tiered monthly throughput caps that include UNLIMITED bandwidth and usage, SimplyBonding is the most affordable and hassle-free way to ensure that your business has the fastest and most reliable internet connection possible.

Current SimplyBonding customers wanted more options, and new tiered pricing is available today! Using the simple setup tool, users can now select a SimplyBonding Throughput from 5Mbps to 40Mbps. The new tiers let customers decide just how much bandwidth is required. Users who will be video streaming from a Max On The Go with SpeedFusion can opt for the 5Mbps tier. 5Mbps is more than enough to stream an HD video to YouTube or uStream, and the unbreakable connectivity from running multiple bonded cellular connections means even if one carrier is overloaded or drops completely, your video will continue on without interruption! Larger offices can opt for the 40Mbps tier. This is plenty of bandwidth to run dozens of VoIP phones and critical systems like security systems, e-mail, and more.

simply_bonding_image.png 
 
With SimplyBonding, not all traffic is forced through that 5 to 40Mbps pipe either. With powerful Outbound Policies and easy to follow instructions, you can set just that critical traffic to run over the bonded connection. Less critical traffic (YouTube or Netflix) can be left to the existing internet connection, and mission critical devices like PoS terminals, select workstations, VoIP phones, and more, can be run on the bonded connection.
Watch our demonstration video below showing an unbreakable SimplyBonding connection! If this router was uploading, or streaming a video, though the quality of the stream would have reduced due to lower bandwidth with 1 less connection, the actual stream would have never failed! A typical single internet connection would have meant that video and stream would have completely stopped. Video streaming in remote locations, on multiple 3G/4G cellular connections, is now possible thanks to the improved bandwidth and unbreakable connectivity as long as just one carrier stays active at a time!


For more information, visit the SimplyBonding page at 3Gstore. Do you have a custom deployment or multiple location bonding need, or are you not sure if a bonded connection is right for you? Contact the experts at 3Gstore and we'll look at your unique situation and find a solution that works best for you. All existing SimplyBonding customers will be contacted, and given the option of moving to one of these lower speed tiers if it better fits their needs.

Very well built. Aesthetically nice. Took about 10 min to set up and connect my router to it. Interface easy enough if you have ever set up a router before. Nice features in the web-based interface. I am using it for city-wide wifi in Ponca City Oklahoma and it works like a champ. I am 400+ feet from the City's pole and get full signal, full expected speed. I dropped CableX company at $60/mo and went free, and glad I did. Might be a little slower than cable, however, it is not a deal breaker at free. I can still watch Netxxx movies and not have any issues.

Verizon Announces Opt Out Program for Tracking Cookie

Verizon Announces Opt Out Program for Tracking Cookie

 
verizon_main.jpg
 
"Unique Identifier Header." "Zombie Cookie." "SuperCookie." These are just a few of the names given to the anonymous data tracking that Verizon has had in place since the late half of 2014.

big-brother-1984-1024x674.jpg

EVDOinfo first reported on11/4/14 that Verizon, as well as AT&T, were attaching a Unique Identifier Header, or UID, to all traffic leaving the Verizon network. This UID allowed Verizon to track data usage, what type of sites were being accessed, where traffic leaving the Verizon network would go, and more. Verizon then would use this subscriber information to provide to advertising companies for targeted advertisements. There are a few websites where you can check this UID and see the data for yourself. Visiting THIS PAGE from your 3G/LTE connection will provide the information related to the UID tracking. Be sure you aren't on WiFi, as this only applies to traffic routed over Verizon/AT&Ts network, not your land line ISP. We've checked a few of our own devices here and we can verify this UID information is in fact present in all cases.

zombiecookie.jpg

EVDOinfo then reported the Verizon Zombie Cookie as of 1/16/15. This tracking cookie, which can not be deleted, is there for the sole purpose of tracking users habits on their smart phones and tablets. An online advertising company named Turn, which is a major player in this space hired by Google, Yahoo, Facebook, and more, have figured out a way to use this Verizon tracking data for their own purposes to track users. At this point AT&T had already announced that similar tracking methods were no loner in use, leaving Verizon the standout. Verizon caught a lot of flak for continuing to add information to their network traffic that was following users information and usage habits.

http://m.mediapost.com/publications/13/OptOut-c.jpg

Today, Verizon has finally stepped into the light and created an Opt Out program for their tracking. Many users aren't aware there is tracking to begin with though so an Opt Out at this point looks like a way to save face for the company vs offering a real solution, but its a step in the right direction nevertheless. In order to Opt Out, there are two methods. First, you can log into your Verizon account. Alternatively, you can call Verizon directly at 1-866-211-0874.

EVDOinfo will continue to follow this data tracking program and report any new information we find. Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
