Cradlepoint Wireless Network Solutions for Retail

Never say “no” to a sale, put your customers’ data at risk, or miss out on your peak selling season with Cradlepoint solutions.

Connectivity is the glue that binds together the various aspects of today’s retail experience. Maintaining that connectivity is key to business success.

Retailers have a number of choices when it comes to connectivity solutions. Traditionally MPLS has been the option used, but as you go up in speed, the cost gets exponentially higher. Also the time it takes to get your wired line installed can be anywhere from 30 days to six months.

Cradlepoint provides Software-driven 4G LTE and 5G based Wireless WAN Solutions for 18,000+ organisations across the globe.

The combination of increasing network demands in the branch and the evolution of cellular-based broadband is driving businesses to move from traditional, wired networks to wireless connectivity across their organisations – especially with the new unlimited data plans available from Carrier operators now.

Today 52% of organisations use wireless connectivity for their primary network, with a further 29% planning to do so in the near future*.

As retailers adjust to a continuously evolving industry, driven by the development of new technologies they are finding the flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and reliability of LTE and 5G to be the best solution to support their branch transformation.

Pop up branches at large events, temporary seasonal storefronts, and branches inside large box stores allow businesses to extend their reach and to find new customers. IoT devices, digital signage, customer WIFI and cloud applications offer new services and experiences to customers.
