American Apparel Ensures Uptime
American Apparel is one of the few companies that does all of its manufacturing in the United States. As respectable as this is, it means that the company must do everything in their power to remain competitive in a market that often outsources to other nations, meaning a much lower operating costs.
In order to remain competitive and keep manufacturing in the U.S., American Apparel can’t afford any downtime. Because of this, American Apparel uses Cradlepoint MBR1200B and MBR1400 series routers for wireless Internet backup. American Apparel is able to create private networks between their headquarters and all of their retail locations throughout the world by using IPsec protocol for VPN to securely connect with their Cisco devices, providing 3G/4G/LTE broadband backup support.
To manage their network of routers, American Apparel uses Cradlepoint’s cloud-enabled management solution, allowing them to centrally deploy, configure and manage all of their devices across all of their retail locations, improving reliability and enhancing network intelligence.
In one Cradlepoint router, American Apparel is able to get wireless backup support, VPN connectivity and WiFi capability at a competitive price with great customer services.
