The expectation of reliable connectivity is expanding, as is the requirement for network failover in the retail industry. This blog discusses the importance to prepare a cloud and Edge strategy that incorporates the flexibility and reliability of a network failover solution.
With Cradlepoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM), which recently experienced key upgrades, companies are saving significant time and money by managing their fleet networks remotely. They can configure, manage, monitor, and secure networks from a central location — and from a single pane of glass.
The benefits delivered by an in-vehicle network are diverse and numerous. These applications can lead to value-added passenger services, streamlined work processes, increased fleet security, and access to essential information on the road or rail.
The rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is shaping the way retailers serve customers and run their operations. It’s an exciting time, but it presents a unique challenge: The amount of data that will be generated by IoT devices in the retail sphere will grow exponentially faster than networks' ability to process it.
After what seems like years of hype about “omnichannel” or “connected commerce” in the retail industry, we are still constantly renaming and redefining the concept. Don’t expect it to go away quietly — as it’s necessary as technology advancements continue to drive changes in the experience demanded by customers. Perhaps the most significant change is the overwhelming expectation of constant connectivity.
In the year 2016, restaurants are much more complex than tables, chairs, and a cash register. From customer WiFi and digital signage to Point-of-Sale (POS) machines that require PCI Compliance, the food and beverage industry cannot function without reliable network connectivity.
While distributed enterprises differ in a variety of ways — including goals, needs, and budget limitations — they also share a distinct commonality: They all require network connectivity. The proliferation of digital devices and cloud-based applications drives the need for constant Internet uptime.
This time of year, Santa Clause needs all the help he can get. That’s why Cradlepoint is thrilled to provide connectivity again this Christmas in support of those who track Father Christmas during his worldwide gift-giving mission.

Is there a better way to handle Out-of-Band Management (OOBM)? The concept of OOBM is not new. For years network engineers and architects have been building separate management networks. Whether it is through a management VLAN or dial-up modems, the concept is the same. How do I access my equipment outside of the data path? Console servers, serial aggregators and POTS lines have all been used in the past, and they all have the same challenges: cost, management, maintenance, etc.
