Informed and Frictionless Shopping Experiences
Create exciting modern buying experiences including frictionless transactions while gathering and analyzing consumer behavior in real time.
Hedgehog Delivers a Network Infrastructure for AI:
- Biometric check-in
- Self-service checkout and no checkout
- Inventory tracking
- Loss prevention
- Consumer behavior analysis
- Automated payment processing
Retail increasingly requires technology services to improve customer experience while minimizing the need for sales staff. Examples include AR fitting visualization, dynamic digital signage, zero checkout, real time inventory and loss prevention. This creates the need for more local compute in each location, with a simple method for equipment replacement and hardware sparing.
Edge compute pods are comprised of dense servers, GPUs and local data storage, and are largely hands-off to minimize the need for local engineers. They can be dynamically reconfigured based on business need and use a common device sparing model to simplify hardware replacements.
Large data centers are the backbone of any organization that requires a large amount of compute. Operators seek the efficiency and economics enjoyed by the major hyperscalers, but they can't afford to hire a large team of engineers and developers.
Hedgehog Open Network Fabric creates physical networks that can be operated with your existing Cloud Native tools. Because Open Network Fabric uses SONiC as a network operating system, multiple vendors can be considered, opening up supply chain options.
How Hedgehog Helps
Hedgehog creates physical networks with a range of different deployment options to match each location’s technical requirements.
Hedgehog Modernizes Data Center Networking
Hedgehog Open Network Fabric eliminates the need for proprietary networking software and specialized network engineers. Cloud infrastructure teams can operate their own infrastructure with cloud native software and eliminate brittle proprietary operations tools.
