Cradlepoint Solution Allows Retail Jewelry Store to Open, Saving $50,000
PANDORA, an international jewelry retailer, was almost delayed opening one of its unique concept stores in Lancaster, PA, USA, because of an ISP strike. However, its outsourced IT expert packaged a technology solution that allowed the store to open on time. Combining a Cradlepoint router, WatchGuard XTM21X Firewall, and an HP Pro Curve Switch, the solution temporarily replaced the need for hardwired Internet and, long-term, provided continuous failover protection should the ISP connection get interrupted for any reason. The store opened on time, was able to protect data and avoid landlord penalties that, all totaled, would have exceeded $50,000 USD.
