TP-Link Business Solution for Shopping Mall Networks

Background

With the growing reliance on smartphones for everyday activities, Wi-Fi has the power to play an important role in the average customer’s shopping experience. When a brick-and-mortar retailer offers free Wi-Fi, this incentivizes customers to extend their visit, providing the opportunities to explore, discover and make a purchase. TP-Link Business Wi-Fi Solutions therefore empowers store owners to create a modern and compelling in-store experience for every customer.
