CHALLENGE

A leading retailer with more than 1,000 locations at over 100 different airports sought to standardize their network designs and capabilities across all of their sites. They turned to
Vector Security Networks, in part, because of our demonstrated experience in the airport space.

Engineering and Design

  •      Lack of design standardization between airport locations
  •      No network redundancy
  •      Expensive, low speed, T1 based network

Migration, Installation, and Support

  •      Poor circuit and device support experience
  •      Challenges with access and expertise in airport environments causing installation delays and revisits

Migration, Installation, and Support
