Black Box, a global information technology solutions provider based in Lawrence, Pennsylvania, will be debuting its SimplEdge managed branch network-in-a-box offering at NRF 2020.
Uniting state-of-the-art technology with extensive managed services, SimplEdge makes it feasible for organizations with hundreds or even thousands of sites to undertake the enterprise-wide digital transformation essential to providing compelling customer-focused experiences.
“Enabling smart IT deployment and management at the edge, SimplEdge empowers retail organizations to roll out, maintain and scale technology with speed and consistency across all of their remote locations,” said Kevin Swank, product management and marketing director for Black Box. “Through partnerships with leading technology suppliers and our own global team of certified technicians, we ensure that SimplEdge users benefit from network standardization without the burden of multisite system design, deployment and management.”
A managed, digital-ready, self-contained network-in-a-box solution, SimplEdge offers the health care, retail, financial services and hospitality sectors the IT resources needed to implement high-performing networks while reducing overall operations costs. Working with stakeholders within the organization, Black Box engineers ensure that critical business needs and IT values are reflected in the SimplEdge design.
Powered by Cisco Meraki and deployed and managed as a service by Black Box engineers and technicians, the turnkey solution contains everything required to build a modern branch network: structured cabling, switching, SD-WAN with carrier connectivity, security, Wi-Fi and analytics. The solution is supported by 24/7 monitoring, SLA-driven Day 2 services and a cloud-based help desk. New features are delivered seamlessly from the cloud to guarantee future-ready performance.
SimplEdge will be showcased on the Black Box booth #859 at NRF 2020. Organized by the National Retail Federation (NRF), retail’s largest annual event will take place Jan. 12-14 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
