The wide area network (WAN) and branch networks architectures of the last 20 years have reached a tipping point of complexity, cost and ineffectiveness. The increased cost impacts the retail model for profitability and network complexity creates challenges for PCI compliance adherence. Beyond the business priority for compliance and profitability, the retail customer experience has evolved and is driving a transformation of the in-store experience – from wireless, streaming video and targeted digital signage. Servicing the business and customers requires providing more digital and media-rich services while also being diligent about increasing the security and integrity of sensitive customer data.
