How The Cloud Could Have Saved The Day

cloud.jpgHaving worked off-and-on as a network administrator for the past 15+ years, I am often reminded of just what a life-saver the cloud and managed services can be. This past weekend, I happened to step into a situation where ignoring these benefits led to a complete nightmare for one "unlucky" customer.

I was called-in as a favor on what basically turned out to be a disaster recovery operation. The disaster did not come in the way of a flood, fire or earthquake though. It came in the form of a rogue IT employee who basically took down his employer's entire telecommunications network upon his sudden, forced exit from the company. 

To protect the innocent, I will not get into too many details about the customer, other than state the fact that it was an (otherwise) fairly modern medical office that depended upon a single employee to handle it servers, network connectivity, hardware, software, back-ups and phone service. What could possibly go wrong?

Hardware, software and telecom services were spread out all over the place. No standardization of operating systems, no network redundancy, pretty much no firewall to speak of, no way to monitor or shape network utilization, a mix of analog phone lines from one company and a VoIP service used for other lines from a different company, a wi-fi network that had access to HIPAA sensitive files, unencrypted and incomplete data backups stored on servers overseas and sky-high expenses on everything including software, telecom hardware, broadband service and external hosting providers. To complicate matters, the IT director had been summarily dismissed before the employer managed to shut off his remote access or recover any of the numerous administrative passwords.

To put it mildly, this customer is in deep trouble. It will take many weeks and thousands of dollars to unravel the enormous problems that a single employee has been allowed to cause. That brings me to the actual point of this article, which is what could have been done to prevent such a nightmare. This is where the real benefits of the cloud and managed services begin to seep in. The below are a list of measures that could have been taken to avoid such an ugly and costly incident. The next time you are consulting a customer on the benefits of moving their business to the cloud and a managed service provider, you may want to keep this story and list in mind.
  1. A cloud-based phone system operated by a managed service provider could have assured the customer of continued communications without having to pull the plug on their entire network. A managed firewall and monitored network could easily allow access to vital services while blocking unauthorized access from the outside.
  2. Consolidating services with a single provider would have dramatically lessened the time needed to get in touch with a number of different providers to reset passwords, revoke account access and redirect phone calls.
  3. A managed broadband circuit with monitoring would have ensured that the customer was subscribed to an adequate amount of bandwidth and perhaps even saved them some money. It definitely would have improved the quality of their VoIP calls, which were previously said to be an issue. As it was, all traffic was basically treated the same and the customer had no idea if they were paying for too much or too little service.
  4. Integrated Software as a Service could have done away with a multitude of licensing and hardware issues that were found, provided superior customer support and protected the customer from security issues caused by obsolete operating systems and office software. It would also have lessened the impact of losing passwords known only to a single administrator.
  5. The cloud could have provided complete, encrypted backups of sensitive customer data with greater privacy and perhaps even at a lower cost.
  6. Outsourced IT management quite possibly would have prevented a single employee from obtaining such a stranglehold on this customer's operations by carefully screening prospective employees and implementing policies that would allow them to easily be replaced without downtime or concern of security breaches.
  7. Using a knowledgeable agent or cloud broker could have saved this customer thousands of dollars by consolidating lines, preparing competitive quotes from a number of different carriers and coordinating efforts between vendors. An experienced agent would have also recommended a suitable back-up plan in the event that the customer's primary carrier suffered a service disruption.
  8. Many carriers and vendors have divisions that specialize in helping customers comply with HIPAA regulations, thus protecting their patient's privacy, steering clear of legal problems and safeguarding their licenses. Using one of these providers may have saved them from many headaches that could still result from this incident.
  9. Physical security of the customer's building was also compromised as a direct result, as the employee evidently had a door key and passcode for the alarm system. Cloud providers and managed service providers neither want nor need this level of access. In addition to cost of addressing IT issues, the customer also had to employ an armed guard, locksmith, private investigator and paid for a field call from their alarm company. Again, none of this would have been necessary if the customer had relied upon the cloud, a broker and a managed service provider.
  10. Although the customer had a mix of both traditional analog lines and VoIP service (albeit from different providers), neither were integrated with the other to provide any sort of redundancy. Thus, they still had a working lines for faxes, a credit card terminal and alarm system, but they were otherwise unable to make or receive calls until a new firewall was installed and network connectivity was restored. Obviously, bundling of services with a single, integrated provider or adding vendor-recommended hardware to their system could have prevented their blackout of phone service to a large degree.
Unfortunately, this was an "accident" that never had to happen. While the human factor can never be 100% accounted for, using the appropriate technology for the job could have saved this customer an enormous amount of time, money, legal headaches and perhaps even loss of reputation.

When you consider that taking full advantage of the cloud and managed services would have most likely been less expensive for the customer to begin with, you have to wonder why agents and cloud brokers aren't in even higher demand than they are now.

Wireless Point Of Sale Systems Are The Untethered Future Of Retail Technology

There’s no such thing as a brick-and-mortar store anymore. Or, rather, no store can be only brick-and-mortar. Connected technology is now a key part of the retail experience, whether you’re a boutique gift store or a multinational consumer products manufacturer. Connectivity saves money, gives you better control of inventory, and—by arming employees with more data—improves and humanizes the customer experience. But stores implementing wireless solutions also need a guaranteed connection, as any outage can quickly spiral into financial disaster. 

When retail stores have network downtime, the cost can average $4700 a minute. And even occasional slowdowns can add up, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars of lost revenue per year. With 33% of retail businesses reporting monthly slowdowns and downtime, this is no small matter.

These retailers need more than great primary providers. They need strong backups to ensure that core-function systems like point of sale (POS) trackers continue to stay online. Especially for retail chains scaling up—spread over wide regions and dependent on seamless logistics between warehouse and store—powerful connectivity can be a life-saver. 

With a 99.9%-uptime guaranteed service level agreement (SLA), Sierra Wireless provides this connectivity to some of the United States’ largest retailers, helping transform companies that are trying to keep up with a quickly changing retail market. 

Point of Sale Systems and the Need for Connectivity

Companies with operations spread across many regions have complicated logistics in order to link manufacturing and distribution centers with retail storefronts. Inventory has to be shipped in a way that guarantees stores always have what they need but aren’t sitting on a surplus of goods. And when a customer orders a product that has to be shipped, any location must be able to follow through and deliver it in a timely manner.

Modern Point of Sales (POS) systems can manage sales, inventory, and delivery. The problem, of course, is that the system relies on connectivity and is vulnerable to downtime. When a company’s whole business model is based around data-driven customer service and connected logistics, loss of connectivity is more than an inconvenience. It undercuts the foundations of the business itself. And terrestrial data systems can be unreliable. If there is a cut fiber, a short, or any issue with the cables (even in a redundant ecosystem), the entire network can go down.

Wireless Backup and the Virtue of Redundancy in Retail

Retail stores need a data backup plan that maintains connectivity no matter what—and a service level agreement to guarantee it. Sierra Wireless is the only company to offer a 99.9% SLA, thanks to its patented Maestro smart antenna system . 

By adapting to each store’s unique RF environment, Sierra Wireless’ system is able to provide the fastest data rates, highest availability, and lowest latency across fixed 3G and 4G cellular broadband networks, in whatever area the store happens to be in. Whether a suburban strip mall or a standalone exurban big box, every location has transmission challenges. Sierra Wireless’ technology can seamlessly adjust to all of them. 

A wireless backup plan means that stores not only avoid downtime but—by using a metered rate—they pay only for usage. It’s peace of mind without breaking the bank. 

Wireless Data as a Primary System

Of course, there are a number of reasons to rely on a wireless, rate-based system for primary use. It can be a valuable tool for retail stores during initial construction—before all the cables are laid and while systems are being tested. And the system flexibility also makes it ideal for other aspects of a changing retail market. 

Take the pop-up store trend: even a temporary location will need connectivity. It still has to be plugged into the main warehousing and inventory network. But using the possibly unreliable network that comes with a temporary location means stores could be significantly less productive during their short lifespans. Having a flexible wireless system that is rate-based, easy to install, and available only for the days or weeks that you need it enables a much smoother operation.

By adapting to varying challenges in the RF environment, wireless systems can also be a good option for retailers in airport storefronts, carts at outdoor fests, kiosks in crowded malls, food trucks, or other traditionally difficult locations.

Wireless Connectivity Creates the Human Touch in a Changing Retail Market

Sixty malls across the US are on the brink of closing. Macy’s is shuttering forty stores. Meanwhile, online retail grossed nearly $400 billion in 2016. 

Connectivity is key to competition. Stores have to be more personal, friendlier, and offer a better experience than consumers can find online. Websites like Amazon algorithmically understand what people want to buy, but brick-and-mortar stores can do the same—and do it with a warm, human touch. 

Seamless backup allows retailers to embrace technology without worrying about what will happen if that technology fails, paving the way for innovations like:
  • Easy employee access to data. Imagine if every worker on the floor had a reliable tablet that allowed them to answer any customer question instantly. The only improvement would be a system that pulled up the customer’s existing preferences so that the employee could personalize the interaction. And that might soon be possible with…
  • App-based loyalty and location programs. When a customer walks into a store, their phone can use app-based push notifications to alert them to relevant sales based on purchase history. But the app can also be connected to the cloud, giving employees access to this data so that they can learn about a customer’s preferences and shopping habits before approaching them.
  • Analytics. What did the customer buy? What did they look at? Where did they stop? These same apps can generate customer data by using purchasing patterns and individual and aggregate heat maps. This data can then be used to improve your store’s layout—and your customers’ overall shopping experience. 

Whether a retailer is scaling up and building new locations across the world, necessitating POS logistics that maximize profit, or competing with online retailers in niche markets, they need consistent connectivity. The changing face of retail and the pressures of online competition demand speed and flexibility, and any downtime is a lost opportunity. 

At Sierra Wireless, our primary, backup, and temporary services are helping retail stores compete in this challenging new environment. To learn more about how our innovative solutions can help your business stay connected.

How Do You Know What The RIGHT Business Internet Solution Is....FOR YOU

It goes without saying that businesses today, small and large, need to have a reliable and rock-solid Internet connection to enable them to do business effectively. Choosing the wrong business Internet service provider will do your business more harm than good, and can cost you customers that you can never get back. Even a small business today cannnot afford to try to make DSL or cable suffice; while the price may be attractive, the service from DSL or cable is more often than not exactly what you pay for — cheap, and is that the message that you want to get across to your customers? Your customers are going to think that if you cheap-out on your business Internet service, that you will also cheap-out on the quality of the products and services that you are offering. You need to understand that with DSL and cable, the only way they can achieve the price points they quote is because those circuits are designed to be over-subscribed to the hilt, and if your DSL or cable is not over-subscribed today, you can bet that your provider is trying to over-subscribe it, because they offer NO guarantees for DSL or cable servivce. A smaller business can usually get by with the reliability offered by T1 or bonded T1, but if Ethernet services are offered in your area, it is definitely something that you should look at closely and consider, as it can be an extremely cost effective solution.

Keep in mind that the Ethernet services being offered here are Carrier Ethernet offerings. The term “ethernet” is tossed about by DSL and cable providers but that is not true Ethernet. The services offered here are Carrier Ethernet offerings, meaning that the service is a dedicated service offered by the actual carrier, not a shared service being resold on someone else’s network.

When it comes time to choose and make the tough choices for your business, there will undoubtedly be lots of different options available. This is especially true when talking about telecommunications, where the market is full of things that look good on the surface. You could go with T1, Ethernet, DSL, cable, or something else. With all of these things staring your business in the face, you have to consider the costs and the weigh the benefits of each choice. This choice is one that shouldn’t really be a contest, though. Business Ethernet offers many advantages over the other choices out on the market.

WHAT IS SD-WAN?

SD-WAN is one of the newest technologies to come out and the efficiency and cost efectiveness of it is becoming clear to companies worldwide. SD-WAN is a revolutionary process for improving operational efficiency when accessing mission critical applications that need to always be available.  SD-WAN connects the end-users at a site to cloud services and/or colo centers and data centers by employing the use of inexpensive broadband links. This reduces costs for redundancy, failover, and load balancing and still allows a great deal of flexibility in deployment.
