Gracious Home is also relying on Cybera's SmartNetwork to provide a PCI certified broadband network solution for over 100 point of sale (POS) terminals. SmartNetwork is a PCI compliant managed, MPLS-based broadband network for multi-site enterprises that surpasses competitor offerings in breadth of access technologies, custom routing designs, and managed firewall options. Jim Linsalata, CIO of Gracious Home, said: "No retailer can afford for even a single store site to go down due to unplanned network downtime. When our network is offline, our business is offline. The Cybera network backing up our T1s has given us security and confidence that our network is resilient to outages and downtime-whatever their cause. Since this network supports all our point of sale, e-mail, voice, and data between locations, the Cybera network is a critical component of our business continuance strategy."
