Keeping Retail Moving
Cradlepoint is the industry leader in cloud-delivered 4G LTE networking solutions, with many thousands of organisations relying on them to keep their networks always connected and protected globally.
Cradlepoint Netcloud solution
We are an authorised Cradlepoint reseller and we work alongside cradlepoint to deliver leading primary and failover 4G LTE solutions to our retail customers.
Leveraging the Cradlepoint NetCloud Solution into our overall networking services, we can deliver day-one connectivity to new retail locations which don’t yet have their fixed line installed – enabling our customers to get new stores up and running as quickly as possible. This same 4G LTE connection can also later be converted to a failover solution, keeping locations online and running even if issues arise with the primary connection.
Create, deploy & manage branch networks
Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Solution Packages for Branch Networks deliver pervasive broadband connectivity and the industry’s fastest LTE connections, cloud-like agility, and software extensibility for fixed and pop-up retail locations, restaurants, offices, and more. Cradlepoint’s Advanced Edge Routers are cloud-managed and can be deployed anywhere in days instead of months. Benefits include:
- Single-pane-of-glass cloud management
- Gigabit-Class LTE with pathway to 5G
- Branch Continuity & LTE failover
- Integrated WiFi
- Out-of-Band Management
- SD-WAN for optimized LTE path selection
- Unified edge security
- Comprehensive IoT support
Opening a new location is a competitive and deadline-driven experience. Waiting on an ISP to provision connectivity could hold up opening a new location or office (and revenue generation) by weeks, while the parent company continues incurring overhead. In enterprises with razor-thin profit margins, these delays can cripple a new location even before it officially launches.
Choosing pop-up network solutions
Given the fleeting nature of most pop-up scenarios, it isn’t realistic or practical to invest anywhere near the same amount of IT resources or energy in setting up a pop-up network as one would a primary network. Speed and simplicity are essential when it comes to deploying the necessary technology infrastructure for pop-up and temporary networks.
Cost of downtime
$5,600 in revenue is lost to downtime each minute. When network connections fail, there is a loss of productivity, brand credibility, and revenue — revenue that is likely lost to competitors.
What would happen if during peak business hours your store's wired Internet connection fails?
