Wireless Communications

The connectivity and data needs of shoppers and associates are growing

Today’s shoppers want easy connectivity, immediate access to information and associates who can quickly and accurately answer their questions. That’s why it’s critical for retailers to implement secure, robust and reliable communications systems that give shoppers the wireless experience they expect, and the secure access that associates depend upon.


Your shoppers and associates expect access to a secure, stable wireless network. Associates need to connect to business applications from anywhere in the store. Shoppers want to shop, surf and post to social media. You need to keep business-critical data separate and safe, and would like to extend the benefit of in-store Wi-Fi to send personalized information and promotions to shoppers’ smartphones.


Keep your store networks running and scale size, bandwidth and security as your business grows. Provide access for associates and the wireless connectivity that shoppers expect. And, take it a step further when you use our MPact Platform for Mobile Marketing to send targeted mobile messages, through a combination of Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® technology, to enhance the shopping experience

Wing 5 Distributed Firewall

WiNG 5.5 dramatically increases security by extending protection right to the edge of your network. Every access point becomes a part of your firewall, preventing threats from entering your network unlike centralized WLAN architectures that allow threats to travel through your access points until they reach a controller, where they are finally terminated by a centralized firewall. In addition, the ability to extend firewall policy enforcement beyond corporate-owned mobile devices to personal devices that are owned by your workers helps enterprises drive mobile device costs down with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, without sacrificing data security.
