"The entire retail sector is in a state of flux," says Christian Schallenberg, member of the Management Board at LANCOM Systems. "Networking and various new electronic online processes play a central role. As a partner of many large international retail companies, we at LANCOM Systems are leading the way in network infrastructure solutions for new applications and technologies such as indoor navigation, digital signage, electronic price tagging, and smartphone shopping apps."


Holistic solutions and secure operations

"Total solution management" is the motto behind the LANCOM Systems integrated operating solutions for the chain-store networks of the future. They provide the basis for electronic in-store applications and for integrating con sumer smartphones into networks. At the heart of the solutions are highly secure, highly integrated VPN routers that offer value added features such as high availability via LTE/4G, integrated WLAN controllers, and hotspot gateway functions. Networks can be further expanded with LAN switches featuring energy management, access protection and network separation, and which are the basis for extending networks to include WLAN capabilities.


The future is with wireless LAN

Wireless LAN is an essential part of many concepts for the "chain-store of the future". LANCOM Systems helps chain stores to establish wide-coverage WLAN infrastructures, be it for their own applications or to securely integrate end customers. WLAN enables the implementation of in-store applications such as wireless barcode scanners, mobile POS systems and WLAN-based electronic displays. Chain stores can also provide their customers with online access. This allows them to offer a variety of new applications on customer smartphones, such as electronic shopping lists, customer loyalty programs, and personalized services.


Customers can also benefit from WLAN hotspot access, which remains securely separated from your business infrastructure. Thanks to the "Hotspot 2.0 technology", customer smartphones can be integrated into retailers' information and business processes.
