Major North American Retailer Increases IT Efficiency and Reduces Cost Through the Ciena Virtualized Edge Solution

For this large-scale retailer with more than 2,000 stores, keeping everyone connected to digital payment processing, inventory systems, logistics tracking, and other applications is critical to fulfilling the company’s mission. Achieving ‘always-on’ connectivity used to mean that each store had a telecom closet crammed with physical network devices.

To keep achieving exceptional business results, large retailer needed to:

  • Reduce network device space, power and cooling needs, and costs
  • Eliminate the need to dispatch IT staff to troubleshoot devices
  • Avoid operational disruptions
  • Minimize effort required of buying staff

The company’s IT department knew of the potential efficiencies to be gained by deploying Virtual Network Functions (VNF) at each store location. However, they needed to ensure a seamless transition to virtualization across their many locations—and Ciena provided the right solution.

How did Ciena make a complex virtual network deployment simple? Read the case study to find out.
