Plug-n-play internet connectivity solution enables digital signage for even the most remote locations
LOS ANGELES & SAN FRANCISCO – March 5, 2020 – Digital signage solutions provider, Raydiant, and advanced connectivity provider, Simplifi® are joining forces in an exciting new partnership that makes Raydiant’s digital signage solution the most affordable, secure, and easiest to deploy signage on the market.
One of the greatest challenges of deploying and managing digital signage is getting the signage on-line. Often, locations will not want digital signage to use the existing on-premise network. When they do allow it, the signs quality of service is negatively impacted and there is no remote control of the network. Adding additional networks typically can be painful and costly. And, with some outdoor, rural or portable signage deployment, traditional networks simply don’t work.
Thanks to Simplifi’s plug and play form factor, it’s high-end routing stack, remote management and broadband and LTE technology, deploying a second network with LTE primary or failover has never been easier. Even clients with unreliable internet connections, remote and/or portable locations can experience a top of the line digital signage experience with enterprise-level connectivity.
When using Simplifi + Raydiant customers have reported over 80% reduction in networking costs and 30% increase in sales on a month to month basis. This is due to the simplicity of the solution, the remote management capability for content and connectivity and the increase in engagement through Raydiant enabled screens.
Commenting on the partnership, Raydiant CEO, Bobby Marhamat, said: “After working together late last year on some projects, both companies recognized how well the Simplifi Connect solution supports Raydiant’s mission to bring locations to life with digital signage. We can now help even more clients – especially those in rural locations or with unreliable internet connections – present dynamic digital displays to customers and employees.”
The 2019 Global Digital Signage Market report states that the size of the global digital market is expected to reach $29.8 billion by 2024. Raydiant intends to be the industry’s leading provider by demonstrating to new and existing digital signage users that implementing and managing digital signs can be both simple and affordable. With a solution that takes less than 5 minutes to set up, doesn’t require a professional designer and can be controlled from anywhere, digital signage has never been so easy.
The Simplifi Connect plug-n-play router device provides enterprise-grade, advanced connectivity features. Besides its suitability as a primary router with back-up, the device can also serve as a back-up for other router/extender solutions or as an enterprise failover. With this process, digital signage will not be disturbed when the primary network fails and if and when things do fail, Simplifi automatically picks up the slack by working as a backup network. In many cases, clients prefer to run their digital signage on an entirely separate network, which is also made simple and easy with Simplifi.
While 58% of the world population uses the internet, billions more have yet to become connected. Due to challenges that range from remote locations to lack of IT support, many organizations struggle to maintain dependable internet connections. Simplifi’s hardware and software for internet connectivity is simple and easy-to-manage.
“The Simplifi Connect router is great for ease of deployment for a single location, yet robust enough to support tens of thousands of locations,” says Nick Shevillo, CEO at Simplifi. “We’re really excited about all of the opportunities we are seeing collectively with Raydiant’s digital signage implementations and the future integrations.”
