A seamless and exciting customer experience is vital for modern retailers
IT administrators, store managers, and marketers, who aim to secure the branch and build enjoyable in-store experiences for guests and employees can take advantage of the expansive Meraki IT platform and API ecosystem to ensure a unique and unforgettable customer journey.
Meraki wireless deployments
Today's modern retail world, wireless networking plays a key role - both for the retailer and the customer. Whether you need to manage a country wide wireless network across multiple stores, or offer a wireless service for visiting customers, Meraki can supply the robust service you need backed up with intuitive cloud based dashboard management systems, meaning initial install & ongoing management are easy.
What is cloud networking?
Cloud Networking provides centralized management, visibility, and control without the cost and complexity of controller appliances or overlay management software.
Cisco Meraki products are built from the ground up for cloud management, and come out of the box with centralized management, layer 7 device and application visibility, real time web-based diagnostics, monitoring, reporting, and much, much more. Cisco Meraki deploys quickly and easily, without training or proprietary command line interfaces.
Meraki’s founders invented Cloud Networking while working as graduate students at M.I.T. Cisco Meraki now has a complete line of cloud networking products that power over 20,000 customer networks, including massive global deployments with tens of thousands of devices.
How it works
Reliable, high-performance Cisco Meraki wireless APs, switches, and security appliances are deployed in your campus or remote branches.
Cisco Meraki devices automatically connect to the Cisco Meraki cloud over SSL, register with your network, and download their configuration.
You have complete visibility and control over your entire network over the web. Configure thousands of devices, run diagnostics, or view reports with a few clicks.
Tasks such as RF optimisation and VPN configuration are automated by the cloud, while firmware updates and application signatures are seamlessly deployed over the web.
Wireless Site Surveys
The wireless site survey is often a phase which is overlooked, but not at KFP, as we believe it's one of the most critical aspects to wireless installation. Only once a full wireless survey has been conducted in-store using market leading software tools, can a network be correctly designed & implemented.
To get the best performance out of your wireless network, our engineers ensure that your wireless access points (WAPS) are located in optimal positions around your store to achieve the best coverage and to reduce interference.
