Kennesaw, GA (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
IIS Communications, a leading edge technology solution provider, has been selected by Floor & Decor Outlets of America to provide a reconfigurable data networking solution to all of their new retail locations. The decision was made after the successful deployment of the Telkonet iWire System™ in their Kennesaw, Georgia location.
Floor & Decor is the revolutionary concept in the home improvement category that provides affordable access to the largest inventory of hard flooring products at the lowest prices. The company has currently 18 stores located throughout the U.S., and looks forward to opening an additional 7 stores in 2007.
The Telkonet iWire System, which uses powerline communications (PLC) technology, enables broadband networking by using a building's internal existing electrical wiring, turning electrical outlets into high-speed data ports. The system provides the broadband backbone for Floor & Decor's point-of-sale (POS) terminals and Voice over IP phones, giving them the flexibility to locate and easily move devices throughout the store at any power outlet.
Greg Goforth, Floor & Decor's Vice President of HR/IT, commented, "We needed to find a secure, reliable, cost effective way to network our POS and Kiosk terminals, and didn't want the expense or disruption from installing CAT5 cabling throughout the store. Also, with CAT5, our POS and Kiosk terminal locations would be limited to only where CAT5 was installed. We need the ability to move our POS and Kiosk terminals around to different locations within the store to support service to the customer. PLC solved all of these problems, and overcame security issues that are common with wireless systems. We look forward to rolling out the Telkonet iWire System to our future store locations and where needed retrofitting the solution into existing locations."
Steve Feldberg, President of IIS Communications, added, "The Telkonet solution is ideal for retailers, such as Floor & Decor. It is quick to install, extremely cost-effective, and inherently scalable by simply plugging in another Telkonet iBridge when you need an additional access point. The system also provides a broadband backbone that can support many other applications, such as Telkonet SmartEnergy (TSE) initiative which will enable centralized management of the HVAC environments in the stores with the goal of reducing overall energy consumption by 30%"
