Cradlepoint CBA850LPE CAT3 Router (Multi-Carrier Firmware)


The Cradlepoint CBA850LPE models include an integrated LTE Advanced CAT3 4G/ LTE modem. The LPE modem suppors Multi-Carrier firmware selection so there is only one model for all of North America.  Simply insert the SIM and wait for the router to automatically establish a connection.  The modem firmware to change to a different carrier is easily accomplished within the Cradlepoint software.

Please refer to this TUTORIAL for an introduction to the CBA850 router–remote|external antenna and enclosure installations, powering options and routing functions.

Defining the industry standard for reliability in cellular routing, the cloud-managed ARC CBA850 empowers administrators to maximize infrastructure investments with a high-speed, automatic secondary path to access and control the network at remote locations when connectivity is lost or even if the primary router goes down.


The Cradlepoint ARC CBA850 is a turnkey networking solution for best-in-class 3G/4G/LTE fail-over that integrates seamlessly with existing network infrastructure. Using Enterprise Cloud Manager PRIME, the ARC CBA850 provides the ability to extend management capability to any primary router Out-of-Band without a static IP.  Equipped with Power-over-Ethernet for flexible, unobtrusive placement anywhere to optimize cellular reception, this powerful solution reduces truck rolls, consolidates infrastructure, and maximizes up-time for businesses that require always-on connectivity.

Quick Facts About This Product:

  • This router is best for: This router may be located is the indoor or attic area where reception is optimal.  It can then connected to a switch, Access Point, or another WiFi router via a Cat5e/6/7 Ethernet cable.  It is also the perfect candidate to install  inside one of our external WiFiX antennas and/or an enclosure.  The CBA850 accommodates applications which need IP Pass-Through modem capabilities to connect (via Ethernet) to a new or preexisting network (i.e., router) as a simple drop-in solution.  This router does NOT have WiFi and functions best used as a modem to provide LTE high speed internet thru the WAN port on a WiFi router of choice.

  1. 4 out of 5


    Cradlepoint routers are boss. The LPE is slightly limited on its bands with no carrier aggregation. The CBA850 is a great router and has been rock solid. But, do yourself a favor and jump up to the LP6 model for the carrier aggregation which equals speed. LTE Fix does a professional job on their refurbishing.
