Use Case

Protect your business from costly disruptions with Verizon Wireless Business Continuity solutions.

Businesses—especially those with multiple locations—thrive when they can efficiently manage the flow of information between offices, while keeping overhead costs low. Like most businesses today, a leading beauty franchise with over 10,000 locations worldwide looked for ways to reduce expenses in its North American chain. With each site accessing the network and Internet through separate DSL lines, this was costing the company more than $100 per store per month.

Wireless backup Business Continuity solutions give you fast, secure and seamless connections to the people, information and systems that matter most.

After assessing the situation, the Verizon sales representative proposed the franchise use wireless as a primary connection to uncover significant potential savings over what it was currently paying for DSL at many store locations. Working closely with Verizon to test a range of wireless routers, the client ultimately went with the recommendation that included Cisco® wireless routers and the reliability and extensive coverage of the Verizon 4G LTE network—and initially rolled out the solution to 100 storefronts.

Now, with wireless 4G LTE service as a primary connection, these stores have excellent coverage and are saving money each month. Increased flexibility allows the franchises to efficiently distribute and receive information—reports, sales summaries, marketing data—swiftly and securely across multiple locations. Wireless routers also help protect the stores against downtime due to downed phone lines. That means each location can continue to do business as usual, even when other stores around them have lost their network connections.

Wireless backup routers let you keep working without interruptions even when primary network connections aren’t available.

Business Continuity solutions help keep your business up and running with wireless backup.

And that can mean lost sales opportunities, missed deadlines, possible penalties and dissatisfied customers—all of which impact revenue flow.
