UK Connect celebrates Cradlepoint EMEA ‘Partner of the Year’ Award Win

UK Connect are celebrating another company milestone this month after winning Cradlepoint’s prestigious ‘EMEA Partner of the Year’ Award.

Cradlepoint, who are the global leaders in delivering LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions granted the prize in recognition of UK Connect’s ‘outstanding performance and significant achievements’ over the past twelve months. This comes off the back of further industry recognition, following Cradlepoint’s announcement that UK Connect would also be officially granted ‘5G for Enterprise Branch Specialisation’ status – making them the UK’s sole construction connectivity provider to achieve this title. 

Award announcement

The news was declared at Cradlepoint’s 2021 Virtual Global Partner Summit on the 5th and 6th May 2021. It’s been a busy year for the UK Connect, who had to prove year-on-year growth to be in with a shot of winning the award. Further criteria included a commitment to positioning and selling Cradlepoint’s Wireless WAN business solutions. As the appetite for 5G connectivity increases, both firms have been ramping up their efforts to deliver comprehensive 5G solutions for businesses nationwide. 

Eric Purcell, senior vice president of global partner sales at Cradlepoint, recognised the important role partners play in increasing sales, he said: “Cradlepoint brings best-in-class connectivity solutions to market by leveraging our global partner program and collaborating closely with our partners”.

He continues: “Our diverse set of resellers, service providers, distributors, and technology partners are creating an ecosystem that is accelerating LTE and 5G Wireless WAN adoption. We’re thrilled to be celebrating their incredible work.”

The recognition helps further position UK Connect as a major player in the rollout of 5G technology within the construction sector. As its specialism, it’s bringing clearer and faster on-site communication at a time when digital adoption is becoming instrumental in delivering a safer, smarter and more efficient construction journey.  

It’s down to the hard work of everyone involved in the business that we were able to win this award. Our long-standing partnership with Cradlepoint has allowed to us to deliver over and above their expectations – as well as help us position us as a frontrunner in the UK‘s 5G rollout. We look forward to building this relationship further and will continue to demonstrate our unrivalled expertise in construction connectivity provision.
