No wired connection can deliver 100% uptime so the question isn’t whether your business will lose connectivity to the Internet, the question is how to protect your business from loss and disruption when it does happen. Network failover solutions are imperative.
Your business is exposed to risks of lost revenue, productivity, and customer experience issues when your Cable or DSL Internet service experiences a service disruption (in some areas this happens several times a month) . Upgrading to a more robust wired connection such as T1 line is an option that comes with a significantly higher monthly cost, and it is still susceptible to outages and service disruptions such as construction-related cable cuts, downed telephone lines, severe weather, etc.
Questions to Think About:
- What is your reliance on cloud-based applications?
- What is the impact if applications are offline?
- What types of failover are you considering?
- what cellular networks will you be considering?
- What will your network provide?
- What security protocols are required?
- What network partition requirements do you have?
- What is your enterprise footprint?
- What IT resources are available for ongoing support of this project?
- What are you long term failover goals?
- What are you organizational financial concerns?
- What parameters have you tested to determine best placement of your device for a specific cellular network, or to help you determine which network will provide the best overall experience.
