Major network upgrading at children's apparel brand

Feb '11
Leading children's apparel brand, Carter's, Inc, has agreed to a major network upgrade to deliver stronger security, better performance, and in-store wireless connectivity to be provided by Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, and a leading provider of managed network and application services.

The major upgrade to all of the nearly 500 retail sites provides significant new functionality. The upgrade delivers improved store productivity with Hughes Enterprise Wi-Fi services, enhanced segmentation and security provided by a managed LAN switch and rogue wireless intrusion protection, and improved application performance with increased bandwidth and optimization technology, all fully managed by Hughes.

"We have been a customer of Hughes for over three years and have been satisfied with the network solution and services they have provided us," said Janet Sherlock, Carter's CIO. "When looking to expand our network and applications, Hughes demonstrated that they understood our business and could respond to our needs, allowing us to focus on the bigger picture. We're gaining more bandwidth, and meeting tougher security and compliance requirements with the network applications and infrastructure which Hughes manages for us."

Carter's is committed to providing a superior shopping experience to their customers. To that end, Hughes Enterprise Wi-Fi services will enable Carter's employees to stay connected, productive, and more responsive within the store. Hughes provides a secure, private wireless connection which protects confidential corporate communications. Hughes' rogue scanning functionality is a managed wireless scanning and reporting service that will help Carter's protect against rogue devices from accessing sensitive corporate traffic.

Hughes is also increasing access bandwidth to all store locations which are securely networked via Hughes Optimized VPN services using a variety of technologies, including DSL, cable, 3G, and T1.

In addition, Carter's is leveraging Hughes optimization technology, integral to the Hughes access router, to increase the virtual bandwidth at each store. The additional bandwidth is needed to support inventory management, human resources and back-office applications, along with point-of-sale (POS) system functions for its Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh stores.

"Hughes prides itself on delivering tailored solutions that meet the needs of our customers now and in to the future," said Mike Cook, senior vice president at Hughes. "We are continuing to expand our service portfolio well beyond managed transport as evidenced by our recently announced Wi-Fi, voice over IP, and virtualized branch server offerings. Carter's is an example of a customer that has grown with us and we are thrilled to be delivering a more advanced infrastructure to such a marquee name in the retail industry."
