After a few sluggish post-recession years, online sales continue to dominate and drive the U.K. retail sector and consequently, consumers expect a smooth omni-channel experience. This is especially true ahead of Black Friday and the busy holiday period, when consumers will search online for the best deals and then come in store to purchase big ticket items. In order to the make the most of modern technologies and the festive period, retailers need to ensure their technology strategies are in order by utilising modern cloud technologies and aligning digital and physical strategies.


Recent U.K. research, commissioned by Juniper Networks, asked 100 business decision-makers in the retail industry with more than 250 employees how they are currently using technology in their business, where they plan to in the future and any barriers to entry they see.


In what looks like the boxing mismatch of the year of almost heavyweight vs lightweight proportions, in the red corner stands the lightweight incumbent; UK Network PLC whilst in the red corner stand the 3 Heavyweight challengers of Netflix, The Queens Diamond Jubilee and the Mobile Olympics.


2012 will witness the biggest traffic assault on UK network PLC in living memory from 3 major events


  • The launch of Netflix to UK audiences in early 2012
  • The Queens Diamond Jubilee in June
  • The Mobile Olympics in July / August

The big question: Will UK Network PLC cope with this assault?
