Unbreakable and Fast Pharmacy Connectivity

Unbreakable and Fast Pharmacy Connectivity

SUMMARY

In the USA alone, there are more than 88 000 pharmacy stores. Primarily, the purpose of a pharmacy store is to sell pharmaceuticals and work as a consultancy for the citizens. However, they are for-profit organizations, and their goal is to attract as many customers as possible and sell various products. The best way nowadays to attract and keep a customer is by offering a seamless experience.

CHALLENGE

Imagine that a customer comes into a pharmacy store and spends a significant amount of time to pick the right pharmaceutical product. When they attempt to pay with a credit card, the payment terminal is not working. That is a poor buying experience, and the customer likely will never come back to the same store.

In another example, a customer comes to the pharmacy store and has an electronic prescription. In case of lost internet connectivity, the pharmacist cannot reach the database. It is yet again a very unpleasant and inconvenient situation for the customer. All devices using the internet require a stable connection; therefore, having a backup option is a must.

SOLUTION

Recently Teltonika Networks released the first enterprise-grade cellular router – RUTXR1 with five Gigabit Ethernet ports and an SFP port for communication. For solutions including various components, such as Payment terminal, computer, tablet, CCTV camera, the RUTXR1 fits like a glove. This device is capable of functioning as a primary and a secondary router. It supports fiber optic connectivity and has two SIM card slots. Besides, it offers dual redundant power supplies for electricity backup.

Another great feature of RUTXR1 is dual-band wi-fi, meaning it supports 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies, enabling to provide two different networks for the staff and the customers. As seen in the topology below, RUTXR1 provides wi-fi to the wireless payment terminal and a tablet, while the computer and the camera use the Ethernet connectivity.
