Outsmarting an Outage — 6 Wireless Failover Strategies to Keeping the Lights On

February 02, 2021

11 a.m. PST | 45 mins

Event Description

Organizations can’t afford network downtime in buildings and fixed sites anywhere communication and vital operations take place. By running more of your mission-critical applications and company or agency workloads from the cloud, and with the average cost of IT downtime being $5,600 per minute, any loss of WAN bandwidth can inhibit operations and profits. Additionally, when a primary link goes down, IT remote management can’t see what is happening with the branch network unless they deploy a costly service “truck roll.”

This webinar will cover six WAN strategies for automatic failover, built on LTE and 5G technologies, that can help IT professionals build resiliency into their fixed-location connections and avoid costly network downtime.

What We’ll Cover:

  • How to improve network uptime and business continuity without impacting the existing WAN and data center infrastructure
  • Why increasing the diversity of network components and connections reduces single points of failure
  • When to use Wireless WAN links to cost-effectively accommodate traffic spikes
  • How to gain visibility into and troubleshoot devices once the primary WAN device is inaccessible
