Clothing retailer leverages primary edge routers, LTE & cloud management to streamline network operations
Evereve is one of a growing number of retail enterprises that are turning to all-in-one routers for converged wired and wireless connectivity at their many distributed locations.
At Evereve, intermittent connectivity outages at stores and IT manpower limitations at the corporate office had become too cost-prohibitive. That’s a big problem for a company that needs connectivity for most of its applications, including VoIP, Point-of-Sale (POS), music system, customer WiFi, inventory management, staff hours tracking, internal communication, in-store e-commerce, and traffic counters.
Evereve deployed Cradlepoint’s AER1600 as its primary Edge routing platform — along with NetCloud Manager (NCM), the network management service available in the Cradlepoint NetCloud platform. The IT team deployed these solutions in every retail store, as well as at corporate headquarters, and in the company’s warehouse.
Evereve has experienced many benefits with the Cradlepoint solutions, including:
- Seamless failover
- Fast, simple deployment
- Ample scalability
- Instant, secure updates across the network
