Bilfinger SE uses Cradlepoint’s wireless edge solution for day-1 connectivity anywhere and failover between multiple carriers
Challenge — For industrial construction work with immovable deadlines, Bilfinger SE needed a connectivity solution to quickly connect construction trailers to internal networks. Also, the technical nature of projects meant that on-site engineers regularly used cloud-based design applications, generating hundreds of gigabytes of data each month and regularly exceeding SIM card data limits, resulting in network outages.
Solution — Bilfinger now leverages the flexibility of cellular broadband through Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for Branch and LTE routers — enabling day-1 connectivity, dual-modem and multi-carrier functionality, SD-WAN intelligence for high-bandwidth applications, and centralized network management.
Benefits — With always-on connectivity available in construction trailers, workers collaborate with off-site teams at will and make precision design adjustments, irrespective of SIM card data limits. Leveraging multiple carriers through Cradlepoint’s wireless LTE routers ensures seamless failover during power outages, and IT teams can push out critical updates while managing the network from a single pane of glass.
