Large multi-location retailers rely on Wide-Area-Networks (WAN) to transfer store data to headquarters to manage inventory. While newer retailers are investing in the SD-WAN (Software defined Wide-Area-Network) technology for its centralized cloud-based benefits, older retailers are slow to overhaul their existing legacy infrastructure, spanning across cities and/or countries, as the costs involved are financially unsound.
Traditional Data WAN Retail
These older retailers collect inventory data typically over an MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) network collecting data from each store, from within their internal LAN (Local Area Network) and transfer it to headquarters over a T1 connection through a communication provider. This requires routing equipment that automatically translate the LAN and T1 disparate networks. In the past, several vendors have been providing such router equipment. Recently they have started discontinuing some of these products, leaving retailers in a difficult situation to find alternative vendors.
Fortunately, Sangoma provides a line of A-series T1 data telephony cards which are designed to perform this exact task. Whether you are looking for a plug-and-play solution for your existing legacy router or wish to create your own cost effective router to deploy at each location, Sangoma has the answer to help you extend your existing legacy data WAN network.
