Spacenet® Showcases "Big Bandwidth Store" During National Retail Federation's BIG Show 2013 - Booth #1675
MCLEAN, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks (News - Alert)
Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of managed network services,
will be showcasing its full suite of communication network solutions for
retailers in its "Big Bandwidth Store" themed exhibit at National Retail
Federation's BIG Show at the Jacob H. Javits Convention Center in New
York, January 14-15, 2013.
Spacenet manages and optimizes communications networks for many of the
country's leading retailers. These clients typically have hundreds or
thousands of stores spread across a wide geographic area and include a
wide variety of broadband, wired and wireless technologies. Spacenet
helps retailers deploy the tools and technology needed to enhance Point
of Sale (POS), accelerate customer check-out and enable real-time
inventory control as well as gift card and loyalty programs,
self-checkout initiatives, video surveillance and more.
In booth #1675, Spacenet executives will discuss the need of
retailers with geographically dispersed locations for broad, fast,
secure and reliable connectivity, while simultaneously achieving a lower
total cost of network ownership. Spacenet's "Big Bandwidth Store" theme
at this year's show represents the one-stop bandwidth shopping that
Spacenet's comprehensive line of 24/7 managed network services brings
retailers. The exhibit will feature four unique solutions pods,
highlighting Spacenet solutions sets for some of the top challenges
facing today's retail network, including:
Access Strategy - Spacenet develops an access strategy for the
retailer's overall network using a technology-neutral (Cable, EoC,
Fiber, DSL, 4G and VSAT) approach that provides the greatest coverage
and lowest total cost of ownership.
Wi-Fi Communications - Spacenet provides centralized, full-scale
program management of in-store Wi-Fi deployment and operations for
consistency in management, maintenance and security throughout each
store and across the enterprise.
Unified Communications (News - Alert) - Spacenet helps optimize business processes
and communications by integrating real-time (instant messaging,
presence information, telephony, video conferencing) and non-real-time
(voicemail, email, SMS, fax) technologies across all devices and
media, leveraging its MPLS network to deliver an enhanced user
experience through Quality of Service (QoS).
Integrate IP Physical Security - in conjunction with Vector Security®,
Spacenet offers an integrated, single-source solution for managed
network services and interactive security products and services,
including integrated video, BA/FA, access, EAS, robbery and more.
"Today's retailers face an ever increasing demand for wide area access,
in-store Wi-Fi, unified communications, and vault-tight network
security," said Glenn Katz (News - Alert), Spacenet's CEO. "And affordable, accessible
and secure bandwidth is the key to all of the above. Spacenet's tiered
approach to managed services empowers retailers to strategically and
cost-effectively deploy the tools and technology needed to optimize one
of today's most vital corporate assets... the network."
Also in booth #1675, Vector Security, a loss prevention provider
offering a wide array of interactive security products and services,
will discuss how a combined Vector Security/Spacenet solution creates
one point of accountability for retailers and provides proactive
monitoring and support through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs),
compliance services and secured hosting.
