Spotlighting Carlo's Bakery in response to their evolving technology, the company turned to Cradlepoint’s ARC Series and NetCloud Manager (NCM) SaaS management platform for necessary failover redundancy and cellular LTE required for day-to-day operations.

Cradlepoint enables Mannington Mills to efficiently support changing business needs with a scalable, easy-to-use solution that provides reliable backup connectivity for business locations across the U.S.
In part three of this series, Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWAN) will be of focus as historically, retailers have struggled with justifying the cost of their store network—even for their own use. Just a few years ago it was a struggle for retailers to spend the money to provide free Internet to their customers.
The Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region is now seeing a rapid migration to 3G/4G LTE networks as well as much more widespread network availability. For distributed enterprises and emerging industries, these network technologies are being used to meet the need for constant, flexible connectivity and failover backup solutions for business continuity.
As I walked into Interop this year, it was hard to miss the presence of the two networking colossuses, HP and Cisco. Both were here to strut their stuff to network administrators, IT engineers and directors, and maybe a CIO or two. Filled with beefy new products and features, they are the 600-pound gorillas in the tech industry.
As we discussed in our previous post about failover (The High Cost of Downtime Part 1), 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.
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.
Last fall, Cradlepoint CSO Kent Woodruff wrote a blog post about Adam Shostack’s theme for his opening address at 2014 BSidesLV. Shostack spoke at length about “information sharing as the ultimate act of self-preservation.” The exponential rise in criminal intrusions into public and private databases in the recent past has precipitated the creation of a number of information sharing organizations by both the private and public sectors.
As I said in my previous post, CIOs from leading retailers agreed at a recent conference that the new trend is to move business applications to the cloud. This move has put new strains on local retail locations as they scramble to acquire necessary increases in bandwidth and resiliency. But as the cloud evolves, so do the nation’s wireless 3G and 4G LTE networks. Even though the advantages of wireless access now outweigh wired connectivity, many companies are still reluctant to make the switch.
I've been in Las Vegas for the past few days at Interop 2013:
