Black Box Introduces Network & Managed Services for Customers with Branch Locations

April 2, 2019

LAWRENCE, Pa., April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Box, a leading provider of intelligent digital edge solutions, today introduced SimplEdge, a digital-ready, self-contained network to serve customers with branches and remote locations.

SimplEdge is designed to enable state-of-the-art digital transformation at the edge. It brings a complete networking solution to retail, banking, insurance, hospitality, healthcare, and other organizations with hundreds of dispersed locations. SimplEdge includes structured cabling, switching, SD-WAN and carrier connectivity, Wi-Fi, security, and associated managed services to enable mobile-first, application-ready, cost-effective networking for customers, staff, guests, and patients.

The Black Box SimplEdge package features hardware from industry leaders, such as Cisco Meraki and CommScope, combined with design, deploy, and managed services from certified Black Box engineers and technicians.

SimplEdge is particularly well-suited for organizations that have little or no remote IT support or staff and want to standardize on the latest technologies for existing and new locations. Black Box’s SimplEdge includes reference designs, multi-site installation, and ongoing maintenance and management to ensure maximum uniformity and uptime. With Black Box’s global footprint and broad range of local expertise, SimplEdge can be installed at hundreds or thousands of locations with expediency providing a foundation for digital-transformation across an organization’s entire footprint.

“SimplEdge is going to enable digital transformation while simplifying networking for companies with branch locations,” said Doug Oathout, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at Black Box. “Organizations with multiple locations can struggle to quickly deploy technology across large geographies at scale and with the consistent end-user experience their customers expect. The solution is designed to give these organizations a high-performance network for today’s digital transformation that’s consistently managed across all branches.”
