In Part 2 of this series (Retail Connectivity: Asking the Right Questions), I offered a number of questions for retail enterprise IT managers to consider when looking for retail connectivity solutions. In this post, I’ll focus on one of those solutions: Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWAN). Historically, retailers have struggled with justifying the cost of their store network—even for their own use.

Part 2: Retail Connectivity: Asking the Right Questions

As we mentioned in the previous post (Part 1: Profitability & Technology Now Go Hand-in-Hand), retail enterprises are in a race to see who can deliver the best in-store WWAN for both staff and guests; who can leverage the cloud; and who can do all of this in a way that provides the highest levels of reliability, bandwidth, and security.

As I walked into Interop this year, it was hard to miss the presence of the two networking colossuses, HP and Cisco.

Part 1: Profitability & Technology now go Hand-in-Hand

Retailers this year face a challenge and an opportunity to grab more than their fair share of what the National Retail Federation predicts will be a $602 billion peak season.

As we discussed in our previous post about failover (The High Cost of Downtime Part 2), network outage can impact both revenue and reputation. In this post we will look at some of the connectivity options available, and provide some tips on 4G solutions that might be right for your organization.

High Cost of Downtime Part 1

A tree falls in high winds. A snowstorm sweeps into town. A backhoe digs a little too far to the left. Lightning strikes a telephone pole. Floodwaters inundate city streets. All of these acts of nature (or of humans) threaten business continuity. When a business loses its Internet connections, it loses revenue; and a whole lot more.
