5G/LTE Connectivity for Retail
Today's retail environments are more connected than ever with network access essential to run a wide range of Point-of-Sale (POS), inventory, customer, and business applications. The number of devices is growing, from laptops and tablets to digital signage and IP-based CCTV, making always on-connectivity essential.
However, retail outlets are difficult and expensive to connect with traditional wired lines. Firstly, many retail locations are not stand-alone addresses, but store-in-store setups, where indoor wiring usually adds cost, delay, and a range of approvals from building management. Secondly, retail is dynamic, with locations, setups, and concepts changing fast and even extending to outdoor locations, kiosks, and events — all not ideal for Telcos to deliver wired lines.
Blue Wireless 5G/LTE solutions offer flexible, low-cost and reliable connectivity for retail without the waiting time and hassles of wires. Retail locations are usually well covered with high-speed networks by mobile operators, with multiple networks and indoor access points available. This provides a good basis to utilize 5G/LTE for a range of scenarios, including as a primary, temporary or backup connection.
Blue Wireless offers a range of retail-specific solutions, which combine suitable equipment, mobile data plans, field service and management, making connectivity a breeze for any outlet. Our service includes next-day delivery and month-on-month plans, so your site is connected when and where you need it.
