I was poking around the wifi alliance web site and noticed there is a product called the MBR95. Looks like it has Wireless B/G/N. Not really sure much about the MBR95. I did some googling and found this info:

According to WiFi Alliance it looks like it uses 2.4 GHz (vs. 5.0 GHz), but it looks like it has 2 transmit and 2 receive antennas (got that from Certification ID: WFA11639). It claims the MBR95 is a "Access Point for Home or Small Office (Wireless Router)" and it was certified on April 29, 2011.

CradlePoint Announces New 4G/3G Router for Home Office & Small Business





Wireless 4G/3G MBR95 router offers numerous connectivity options for instant WiFi

Boise, ID (PRWEB) June 14, 2011

CradlePoint Technology announced today its newest product, the CradlePoint Wireless 4G/3G MBR95 router designed specifically for home office and small business. CradlePoint's industry-leading 4G/3G routers allow customers to expand the reach of the Internet where they need it, even if wired connections such as cable or DSL are unavailable.

By leveraging the massive deployment of high-speed mobile broadband networks provided by carriers such as Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, the MBR95 router can create secure WiFi connectivity wherever you receive a mobile broadband (cellular) signal.

Secure, powerful, and simple to use, CradlePoint's MBR95 Wireless 4G/3G router gives the home office and small business user more choices in how they connect to the Internet. Built for optimal performance and versatility, the MBR95 router creates a wide-range WiFi network that allows connectivity of up to 32 devices when combined with a cellular USB modem, cable, DSL, or even satellite data modem connection. Supported devices include PCs, laptops, Macs, iPads, DVRs, gaming systems, cameras, printers, VoIP phones – anything with WiFi connectivity. Additionally, the MBR95 accommodates up to four Ethernet devices so computers, VoIP desk phones, and multifunction printers can be connected directly to the router.

Another powerful feature of the MBR95 is its ability to use an outside WiFi signal as a data source. This feature, also known as WiFi as WAN, allows you to change the MBR95's internet source to an outside or even public WiFi without altering any of your WiFi-enabled device passwords or sharing options, ensuring access security in any location. "WiFi as WAN is a feature that continues to evolve as a significant differentiator,” said CTO, Gary Oliverio. “We've heard from our customers that they love the ability to take their established, password-protected networks with them on the road without compromising the security of their data. The MBR95 makes that possible."

The MBR95 quickly creates two Wi-Fi networks: a private one for keeping your network secure and a guest network that gives customers, co-workers and friends simple access to your Internet connection. Both networks provide password protection to ensure full control of the network connection.

Small businesses can also take advantage of the MBR95's highly customizable security settings and failover/failback option, providing secure and reliable “always on” Internet.

The MBR95 also provides a wide variety of encryption and security features to prevent unwanted network access. With CradlePoint's integrated WiPipe technology, the product features a NAT firewall, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), WEP/WPA/WPA2 (personal and enterprise) WiFi encryption, as well as VPN pass-through support to allow secure corporate connections from PCs and tablets. 802.11n technology also allows for up to 300Mbps data throughput rates.

CradlePoint routers are built to work with the most popular cellular USB data modems from leading carriers: AT&T, Bell Canada, Clearwire, Cricket, Rogers, Sprint, T-Mobile, Telus, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless, & Virgin Mobile, as well as most Cable and DSL providers (modem and service sold separately).

Available today at http://3gstore.com/mbr95

That's a pretty tempting router. I'm currently using an MBR-1000 as my primary router, and I'm left wondering if there's an advantage to moving to the MBR-95?

The front panel signal indicator would be really handy. And the new admin screens, Dual SSIDs, and WAW features all seem like potentially useful tools.

But what I'm most curious about are the 'Enhanced LTE Support' and 'Modem Health Management' features described in the review. Are these any better than what's available in the MBR-1000? Or does this just bring the MBR-900 line up to par with what the MBR-1000 has today?

Good review. Thanks!

Two questions:
1. How does this modem stack up against the CTR35 with regard to ultimate 4G bandwidth, i.e., being able to fully utilize the bandwidths that may ultimately be available with 4G? I probably don't need the additional functions of the MBR95 (other than perhaps additional wireless range) and like the CTR35 form factor.
2. I have read somewhere (evdo forum or elsewhere) that the new OS in the CTR35 can be troublesome. It is apparent that the CTR35, the MBR1400, and this MBR95 share this new OS (BSD?). How about a thorough assessment of the pros/cons of the new OS as compared to the old?

Thanks, DaveD

I read the review of the new Cradlepoint router with interest. However the compatibility chart does not list the Novatel USB551L modem. Is this correct? I understand the MBR-900 series was capable of using this modem. Why not the replacement?********************************M.S.**********

Anyone have any thoughts about this? I'm really curious.

Thanks!

Dave,

We are working on exactly that right now, the ultimate guide comparing the BSD (new 2011) platform with the older CradlePoint Platform. Should have it ready in the next week or so.

Also, the BSD platform was VERY troublesome, but CradlePoint has worked out those issues and it is VERY stable and recommended now.

That's correct - at this time, the USB551L isn't supported by the MBR95. However, Cradlepoint has mentioned in another thread here that a firmware update should be available in July that will add compatibility.

Any progress on the comparison? I'm putting off upgrading to a 4G modem until I have a bit more information, and this is an essential part.

PostPosted: Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:39 pm    Post subject: Upgraded from MBR 900 to MBR 95 with Pantech UML290 Reply with quote

I recently purchased the Cradlepoint MBR 95 to replace my MBR 900 because I was getting frequent disconnects. I have a Pantech UML290. I am in a 4G area and get downloads of 16-20mb. I had the 12 ft usb extension cable but still would get the frequent disconnects. I decided to try the MBR 95 since I read it had better hardware and software to handle the 4G speeds. I have noticed great improvement with disconnects. I occasionally get a cycle of disconnects but not very often. I usually reboot and everything is fine. The modem and router are showing connected when this happens, so I do not think it is a modem/network issue. Bottom line is I am having way fewer disconnects and can actually download large size updates and files without getting kicked out. Hope this information helps someone else if you have experienced the same problem.
