Always-on Connections for Store Networks and Powering Intelligent Systems In the fast-paced world of retail, network reliability is everything—but so are security, agility, and cost-effectiveness. Retailers want it all, and they depend on their IT administrators to balance these needs. Whether it’s ensuring an always-on connection for store networks, powering intelligent systems aimed at swaying buyer behavior, or transmitting real-time analytics to inform marketing and inventory decisions, the bedrock of successful retailing is a network that can support the growing list of mission-critical applications dependent on secure Internet connectivity. In the past, finding a solution to balance these demands has been difficult at best. Less expensive wired options like DSL mean hours of downtime each month. Alternatives like T1 connections deliver more uptime but carry a price tag that usually puts large-scale distributed deployments out of reach.

“Today’s shoppers expect more than a transactional relationship with retailers; they want a seamless and personalized journey that reflects the context of how they shop across devices and channels. The key to success lies in connecting in-store software with online systems so retailers can provide an uninterrupted experience wherever customers shop.” - Ross Mason, Founder of MuleSoft Driving digital transformation in retail requires connectivity across an ever-increasing number of applications, data and devices. Because of this, connectivity has emerged as a bottleneck that slows the development of new applications and the adoption of new technologies to meet customer demands. In response, leading retail and CPG companies have adopted API-led connectivity, which eliminates this connectivity bottleneck and enables a 2-5x faster IT project delivery across the value chain.

With its skilled nursing facilities located in remote areas of a state known for its unpredictable and sometimes violent weather, Texas-based Creative Solutions in Healthcare (CSNH) was suffering more than its share of network interruptions. According to CIO & CISO Shawn Wiora, the company was losing network connectivity multiple times each week. This downtime not only disrupted business continuity, but was bad for morale among both the company’s IT workers and its care-delivery staff. Creative Solutions in Healthcare wanted a network connectivity solution capable of delivering highly secure, uninterrupted, and centrally managed service.

Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between. Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.

Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers. Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.

The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.

To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain. IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations. Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.

The client had an extensive global multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network with over 30 Gbps of bandwidth. However, the client was experiencing bandwidth growth of >30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and foresaw increasing demands for multi-media applications, data center to data center traffic, and cloud solution usage to support its business units and global workforce. It became crucial for the client to re-architect their current network to support growth and provide a globally consistent user experience at lower cost. With 40% of their WAN traffic being http internet traffic, they needed regional internet service provider (ISP) breakouts. The client needed a lower cost/MB high capacity WAN backbone for better application performance and cloud optimization. Their network needed to be scalable to poise them for anticipated growth and offer improved site connectivity options.

Healthcare IT Enabled by 4G LTE It’s time for healthcare providers to change the way they think about their services. No longer is healthcare simply about healing sick patients in the confines of the office or hospital. Growing competition driven by changes in public policy and consumer expectations mean that healthcare organizations must find ways to meet patients where they want and need healthcare the most—which requires extending care, and connectivity, beyond the boundaries of traditional healthcare facilities.
