Spacenet Selected by Cumberland Farms to Provide Managed Network Services Solution


25 October 2011


Spacenet Inc., has been selected by Cumberland Farms Inc. to upgrade and manage its communications infrastructure for over 600 stores across 11 states. The upgraded network solution will utilize DSL service to deliver higher network performance and a VSAT satellite overlay to maintain business continuity at each site. Spacenet will install the award winning Prysm Pro network management device at each location to monitor and manage this hybrid network.

"Cumberland Farms constantly assesses and revamps its strategies to improve each customer's experience and make it an enjoyable one" said Cumberland Farms' CIO, Dave Banks. "Specific enhancements this time around required an optimization of our network performance and improved support of our in-store applications. The enhancements also allow us to have a separate network at the stores for non-PCI compliant devices and partners, which is very important as we bring in new technologies. We knew that we would not achieve our goals without the right communications partner, one that understood our business and values when providing our customers with the tremendous service level that we always strive for. Spacenet's expertise in managed network services made it the ideal choice, giving us the flexibility we need while boosting network efficiency and reducing our overall costs. The upgraded network and services from Spacenet will help us keep our position as the premier convenience brand and fulfill our promise to make every day easier for the communities we serve."
