Kenco uses Cradlepoint for centralized network management at warehouses, distribution centers, and transportation hubs
Challenge — To keep its high-quality third-party logistics (3PL) services running smoothly 24x7 for Fortune 500 customers, Kenco needed dependable and secure network access at warehouses to connect essential systems and equipment. At new locations, however, waiting months for a new fiber service wasn’t possible given rigid contractual terms. They needed network access on day 1, and it needed it to stay up and running without interruption.
Solution — Kenco chose highly reliable and flexible cellular broadband to connect facilities, delivered through Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for Branch and wireless 4G LTE routers and adapters. This solution supports cellular and wired broadband and includes robust Wi-Fi, fast setup through zero-touch deployment, in-band and Out-of- Band Management (OOBM) services, and extensive cloud-based network and security management features and integrations.
Benefits — Kenco warehouses attain day-1 connectivity for sites and network access for critical systems — including applications and connected devices such as scanners, printers, and sensors. In the event of an outage, the IT team can remotely troubleshoot systems using OOBM features that help them side-step costly in-person support.
