Connectivity equals productivity: The manufacturing industry has one the of the greatest opportunities to adopt new technologies that will help increase competitiveness, improve efficiencies and impact the bottom line. As manufacturers embark on their journey through digital transformation one priority remains at the top – Connectivity. The smart factory of the future needs consistent and reliable cloud access to various mission-critical applications and services that keep the production line optimized and performing 24/7. The remote nature of most manufacturing plants makes traditional MPLS services expensive and unreliable. SD-WAN offers reassurance and performance features to keep your smart factory running at all times. Here are 3 Key SD-WAN Benefits for manufacturers to consider.
Understanding the Broadband Risks
Businesses who rely on cloud-based solutions are recognizing that legacy WAN networks built with MPLS connections are ill suited for cloud access. Broadband connectivity is a faster and more affordable alternative that provides direct cloud access, but these links weren’t designed for business-critical applications. SD-WAN offers greater agility for cloud access but for cautious CIOs the central question is, “can I really trust broadband for business cloud applications?”
Cloud productivity requires more than just speed, so you can’t simply rely on raw broadband. That’s why we build intelligent networks that recognize broadband impurities and manage your connections to deliver the optimal cloud experience. The solutions is called “pure bandwidth aggregation” and it’s powered by VINO.
Competition in business can be fierce, but small and medium-sized businesses have one big advantage. They can react quickly to changing market opportunities. Cloud technology can make your business even more nimble. The cloud provides businesses productivity and collaboration tools that let SMBs challenge their largest competitors. With the latest software and apps, employees can work virtually and share information easily. All elements of the business benefit, from product development to customer service. To be competitive, you’ll need a fast, secure, and reliable network. It must accelerate cloud productivity. And it needs to do this without breaking your budget.
Perfecting Cloud Failover Through SD-WAN. Business leaders who demand high-productivity should make cloud availability a top priority. The last-mile connection is the weakest link in the cloud connectivity chain, but all failover solutions are not created equal. Here’s a look at five key features that will protect you against lost cloud productivity.
95% of shoppers pick tech-based help over in-store sales staff. Welcome to the age of the digital DIY shopper. The survey, recently unveiled by the folks at HRC Retail Advisory, suggests more shoppers are seeking help from technology – namely smartphones and social media – instead of salespeople when hunting for the perfect product in a store. Read the full blog for more insights on the impact of Retail Store Network outages and SD-WAN failover solutions to avoid them.
IT personnel and network engineers have a palpable feeling of uncertainty as a new set of challenges confront them. Digital transformation is turning business models on their heads. While enterprises take measures to bolster IT departments and gear up to adapt to the latest technologies, they face fundamental resistance from within. Hardware-centric enterprise networks are based on static deployments, which makes configuration changes too slow and too costly. These legacy networks were never designed to evolve at the pace which business requirements are changing today.
Why Retailers Need Unbreakable Store Connections… The retail industry has passed through multiple evolutionary phases since the dawn of the internet. Innovative technologies continue to boost retail efficiency – particularly in areas like POS, CRM, inventory management and online sales. While business processes have improved, these technologies make retailers totally dependent on internet access. The result of this digital transformation is an urgent need for unbreakable store connectivity to ensure non-stop retail operations.
