KFP delivers 5G routers for Gail’s Bakery

Gail’s Bakery will be using a Cradlepoint high-speed, flexible 5G connectivity solution in stores to support IoT devices including smart ovens, fridges and cookers.

The craft bakery worked with KFP, its IT solution provider, to put a reliable solution in place that would provide a flexible deployment of primary and secondary 5G connectivity.

After looking at all options available, KFP and Gail’s Bakery chose Cradlepoint E3000-5GB routers to roll out a quick trial, with routers deployed at ten sites. Following the test period, Gail’s Bakery is set to install Cradlepoint’s routers at a further 80 sites over the coming year.

With Cradlepoint’s cloud-based NetCloud platform, Gail’s Bakery has been able to gain more insight into its network than ever before. Through a single cloud-based management platform, IT engineers can monitor data usage and address problems remotely, meaning they do not need to spend time travelling to stores to fix problems.

This remote access reduces downtime for the business, and helps make the routers quick and easy to deploy. Staff only needing to plug in routers to create a high-speed 5G network.

George Norman, regional sales manager, Cradlepoint, explained, “Through our E3000-5GB router, Cradlepoint has been able to completely transform how Gail’s Bakery operates, reducing costs and downtime for the bakery chain.

“As retailers everywhere struggle with economic pressures, it is vital that they build strong network foundations that can enable them to be more flexible and creative in the future. This is what we have achieved for Gail’s Bakery.

“They can now continue to innovate, safe in the knowledge that their high speed 5G network will continue to support new applications as well as existing ones.”
