Shop ’til Your Wi-Fi Drops: Designing Retail Wi-Fi Networks

Shop ’til Your Wi-Fi Drops: Designing Retail Wi-Fi Networks

Designing and deploying Wi-Fi networks for brick-and-mortar retail can be challenging. POS systems, in-store coupon offers based on location services via network access, and inventory management devices are critical for business operations and all require high-performing Wi-Fi.   

In addition, in a world of fast and now, customers expect reliable Wi-Fi access in stores. To properly support your customers’ devices and deliver the type of Wi-Fi experience they are looking for, you need to perform health checks and proactively manage your network. Fluctuations in capacity and multiple types of devices are important considerations. 

A great network starts with a great design. So put on your virtual walking shoes, grab a coffee, and join us as we discuss designing Wi-Fi networks in “shop ‘til you drop” retail environments.
