Better Business Continuity and Parallel Networks

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 enterprises from connection loss and disruption when it does happen. When cable, fiber, or DSL Internet service experiences a service disruption (in some areas this happens several times a month) the enterprise is exposed to risks of lost revenue, productivity, and customer experience issues. Upgrading to a more robust wired connection such as T1 line is an option that comes with a higher monthly cost. T1 is still susceptible to outages and service disruptions such as construction related cable cuts, downed telephone lines, severe weather, etc.

Another problem is security. Implementing a parallel network for those endpoints that should not be on the primary network will reduce the possible attacks because of the isolation of the more valuable information assets.

Ken Hosac, VP, Business Development at Cradlepoint and Gary Audin discuss business continuity problems and solutions in this podcast recorded at the ITExpo show in Miami. Cradlepoint solves the problem of lost Internet connectivity, automatically, with quick and easy deployable, low-cost solutions. Organizations can maximize their Internet availability by bridging the inevitable gap with 3G/4G/LTE mobile broadband failover. Their solutions automatically detect access issues with wired line connections and provide 3G/4G/LTE network connectivity to avoid service interruptions.
