Black Box Enables Enterprises to Embrace the Intelligent Edge to Accelerate Digital Transformation

PITTSBURGH, Pa, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Box (NASDAQ:BBOX), The Trusted Digital Partner for enterprises across the globe, today announced an expansion of its services portfolio. The company's robust services portfolio of end-to-end solutions for IoT, digital retail and smart offices, enables enterprises of all sizes and across all industries to accelerate digital transformation to improve operational efficiency, revenue, customer experience, and product innovation.

The digital edge is a key component of digital transformation. It is where people and devices meet, where users interact, data is created, and where content and applications are shared.  Today, with almost 500,000 devices added each hour, the number and diversity of connections is driving complexity at the edge. This complexity is overwhelming networks, computing, and IT staff resources - creating challenges with user experience, connectivity, and security.

Leveraging communication, networking and intelligent end-point technologies, Black Box engineers the right IT architecture to support engagement and processing at the digital edge - and does it at scale. With extensive highly trained technicians in staging points across the world, Black Box ensures its clients remain competitive whether they are upgrading a single location or hundreds of locations overnight. Customers gain a highly personalized consistent user experience, mobile-first capacity, and built-in security - all with best-in-class service level agreements.

Sykes, President and CEO of Black Box. "Our expertise, global deployment capabilities and highly-rated managed services, allows our customers to scale their digital transformation in a way no other technology provider can.
