Oberto Brands Selects Aerohive For Enterprise Wi-Fi
Oberto was founded in Seattle in 1918 by Italian immigrants and is the second largest producer of beef jerky in the nation.

The Challenge: Deliver Better Performance and Facilitate Speedy New Store Openings This particular retailer, a mall-based national children’s apparel chain, faced a variety of challenges. Their national retail network consisted of two-thirds frame relay installations and one-third DSL. New Web-based applications, as well as growing point-of-sale (POS), credit/debit, store polling, inventory, and back-office applications were quickly outgrowing the capacity of their existing network.
Retail businesses are particularly vulnerable because of the volume of credit card information, the fact that this information is distributed among many locations, the lengthy amount of time it can take them to detect a breach, and the often inadequate staff and safeguards they have in place.
The little things are often an important part of what makes a brand successful. No one knows that better than Carter’s, Inc., a leading provider of apparel and related products exclusively for babies and young children. The company owns a number of apparel brands, including Carter’s and OshKosh B’gosh, two of the most recognized brands in the marketplace.
Today, when the average consumer walks into a grocery store to buy a pound of beef, there is little doubt that what he is buying is exactly one pound of beef. Yet, a century ago, the story was much different.
