Sun Pacific Energy Deploys New Network

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Sun Pacific Energy is deploying MegaPath Inc.’s fully managed security, VPN and broadband services at more than 30 locations throughout Washington, the company reported.

Supporting the corporate Shell CoolBand initiative, MegaPath is enabling Sun Pacific Energy to reduce infrastructure and phone costs, while also increasing employee productivity and customer satisfaction.

"The Shell CoolBand initiative was designed to help decrease infrastructure costs while increasing transaction speeds, but MegaPath provides much more than that," Craig Eerkes, president at Sun Pacific Energy, said in a statement. "MegaPath completely manages all of our connectivity and security requirements, which will allow us to focus on customer satisfaction and other revenue generating areas of the business."

MegaPath is providing Sun Pacific Energy with a complete infrastructure to securely support all application and data communications requirements throughout all of its sites, the company reported. The secure network infrastructure also gives Sun Pacific Energy fast, reliable and safe credit and debit card processing, which improves transaction times and customer satisfaction. In addition, MegaPath is enabling Sun Pacific Energy to eliminate multiple costly phone lines for each location by migrating key applications, including tank monitoring, back office systems and ATMs to the new broadband network.

"MegaPath is providing us with a freeway to the future," Eerkes said. "We are no longer locked into expensive satellite or dial-up systems, which limited our ability to rollout new systems. Now we can add new applications, such as video surveillance, and improve our customer service without worrying about the reliability of our network communications."

Powered by MegaPath, the Shell CoolBand Network provides broadband connectivity and integration services to support credit and debit card processing and all in-store applications through one secure and reliable high-speed network.

Operators can also connect all their stores to headquarters over this private network, eliminating costly phone lines for ATMs, cash transfers, tank monitoring systems and other analog devices.

Additionally, users can upgrade to the latest point-of-sale (POS) systems with Web-based reporting and inventory and labor management, as well as deploy applications such as video surveillance and digital signage all over a single broadband connection.
