It can happen anywhere: a pop-up store, an outdoor sporting event, a construction site, even a remote beach; but whatever the setting, there have always been places where people have just accepted that there is no Internet connection. That’s changing now, as access to Internet connectivity grows more ubiquitous and the lack of it becomes less acceptable. In a world where people expect to be able to be connected all the time, the absence of access can put a business at a terrible disadvantage.
Challenge: How to connect where there’s no connection
Suppose you’re a retailer who wants to set up a kiosk at a community event for the weekend and you want to accept credit cards. Or perhaps you’re opening a location and your wired connection is delayed. Maybe you need your business network at a construction site until the build job is complete. Or you have been asked to BYON (bring your own network) into a big-box store to run your tax filing operation for tax season. In any of these instances, Cradlepoint, coupled with 3G/4G/LTE enables you to quickly connect to the Internet and set up a network in places you never could before.
Cradlepoint Primary Connect solutions are perfect for your business when:
You need a temporary network: If you’re going to be setting up temporarily, whether for a day or several months, you need a solution that is easy to set up and take down without the delays or costs of installing wires.
There are no existing wired lines or you don’t own the infrastructure: Even if the place you’ll be operating has the potential for connectivity, you’re not in a position to explore that option if it’s not your space.
You need permanent connectivity where traditional wired connectivity isn’t readily available: Whether in a rural location or at an ATM, a digital sign or gas pump, the need for connectivity may be inhibited by the lack of wired Internet availability.
