Richard Platt's curator insight, August 20, 1:05 PM

Sacha Kakad, Managing Director of Westbase Technology, said:

“The adoption of omnichannel strategy in retail stores necessitates the implementation of new technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cloud, which has created a tipping point for the demands on retailer networks and, in particular, their connectivity.”   “This demand means that a flexible connectivity solution is now paramount to networking success – as the reliance on connectivity increases, the cost of downtime escalates also.”   -  Regardless of the fact that PoS downtime alone is estimated to cost retailers an average of $4,700 per minute, many retailers still lack an easy-to-use failover solution for their stores, meaning downtime continues to pose a problem with common causes ranging from human error to construction incidents and bad weather. It is not a question of whether connectivity will go down, but instead a question of when and how well prepared the retailer is for it.   -  Securing their connection is the only sensible option for retailers if they are to avoid the escalating costs of connection downtime. With multiple failover options available to them though, it is even more important that they select the right retail failover solution.   Secondary fixed line options such as MPLS, while offering some benefits, cannot always meet the requirements of today’s shifting retail networks. LTE mobile networking solutions however offer a more flexible, scalable and rapid deployment option for failover.  The advent of LTE has brought with it a new age of mobile networking. Five times faster than 3G, and offering increased capacity, 4G failover can now support the connectivity demands of even the most advanced applications. This enables the solution to keep the entire store online when the primary connection fails, and not just the business critical applications – minimising downtime impact across all areas and therefore losses.
