The Advantages of Auto-Failover Internet Redundancy
The Dangers of Outages
Many businesses and institutions simply can’t afford ANY downtime, such as hospitals, doctor’s offices, utilities, etc. These institutions serve a vital service to our society and without 24/7 reliable internet access these institutions can suffer serious consequences. So how do we avoid outages to ensure businesses and institutions keep moving? Through a process called internet redundancy.
What is Internet Redundancy?
One Ring Networks fixed wireless internet service is the perfect solution for these temporary internet needs. Fixed wireless is a microwave internet technology that can be set up in as little as two weeks and requires no permanent infrastructure or trenching. Fixed wireless can be set up anywhere with line of sight to
Internet redundancy occurs with an organization has two fully separated internet services installed at their location. One of these acts as a primary circuit, frequently Fixed Wireless or Fiber when available, and the second acts as a redundant backup in case of a primary failure, this is often fixed wireless or 4G LTE depending on your primary service method.
Having two separate circuits that are redundant backups can be a lifesaver for your business and give you important peace of mind that no matter what, your business is going to be connected. By joining two circuits together with one as a primary and the other serving as a backup in case of a primary outage you can save money and possible business opportunities. In the case of a socially critical institution, having a reliable high-speed backup connection can ensure these important institutions continue their work no matter what.
An auto-failover is a redundant backup internet solution that switches on automatically without needing to contact a service provider. This is typically possible you have two fully redundant solutions provided through the same provider. An auto-failover is especially advantageous because in the event of a primary outage the downtime is nearly non-existent.
When an organization uses two providers for their failover solution you frequently run into unexpected costs that make the solution prohibitively expensive. To have a failover from a different provider than your primary you often need to pay for additional equipment, an SD-WAN device, and a more expensive firewall. This means you pay for a lot more up front, and your monthly bill sees an extreme increase. This can be avoided by using one provider for both your primary and your auto-failover.
