Burgerville, a Pacific Northwest quick service restaurant company, has deployed Aerohive Networks wireless LAN networking solution.
The LAN networking solution will enable Burgerville, which has presence in 39 locations throughout Oregon and Washington, to offer secure wireless access across its store locations to a workforce of over 1,500 employees, and become fully PCI compliant in restaurant operations.
Established in 1961, Burgerville required an upgrade from its consumer-class wireless product at its headquarters and restaurant locations.
Dave Tallbut, director of IT services at PavelComm, said: “Aerohive offered a compelling retail solution for Burgerville, allowing the company to offer seamless WLAN to guests, be fully PCI compliant and take advantage of a host of enterprise features for greater productivity and enhanced customer experience.”
The new solution is from poor connectivity and complaints from guests. This apart, Burgerville is also benefiting from enterprise-grade security features for PCI compliance and centralized management capabilities for its VPN.
Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Aerohive offered active directory authentication, a key requirement for PCI compliance, which allows corporate employees at restaurant locations to authenticate back to corporate, a capability Burgerville did not have previously.
Burgerville is using HiveManager Online to manage all Aerohive branch routers and access points, allowing the company to update configurations simultaneously in the cloud, as well as exploit a variety of features available from Aerohive.
The restaurant also implemented Aerohive’s Branch on Demand solution, combining branch router platforms, HiveOS router capabilities, cloud-enabled VPN gateway, and the Aerohive Cloud Services Platform.
