Product Overview: MBR1200B by Cradlepoint (Mobile Routers)


This device has been discontinued and we consider it obsolete. While current owners of this device may continue to find performance to be adequate for the foreseeable tech-future, we do not recommend upgrading to or purchasing this device.

Got Coverage?

Potential Current Option: Cradlepoint has officially discontinued this model, replacing it with the much more expensive AER1600 series.

However, as of July 2018 the MBR1200B is still being sold by 3G Store and can be found on Amazon and other places.

Do keep in mind though that this product is end-of-life, and long term support and bug fixes should not be counted upon.

Cradlepoint is focused on the mobile enterprise market, and though Cradlepoint used to have many options for "average" users most have been discontinued over the years as Cradlepoint has focused on the higher end of the market.

Got Coverage?

Individuals with specific needs though do often find value in going with Cradlepoint hardware.

The Cradlepoint MBR1200B ($249) stands out for having two USB ports, and support for load balancing across multiple connections. It is the most affordable "entry level" Cradlepoint router available.
