STRUCTURING THE FUTURE

The Critical Role of Cellular WAN Failover
in Business: Expand Your Service with
Fully Managed LTE Failover

By D'Andre Ladson

I

t comes as no surprise that the
Internet has revolutionized the
way companies conduct business.
Internet connectivity is such an integral
part of business operations today that
any amount of downtime is devastating,
impacting everything from revenues
to reputation and ultimately business
viability. As the reliance on Internet
connectivity grows, so does the cost
of downtime and the importance
of a business continuity solution for
unexpected network connection
outages.
According to industry surveys, the
average cost of downtime is $5,600
per minute, which extrapolates to well
over $300K per hour. These figures are
shocking, yet many businesses do not
have a business continuity solution in
place to protect their operations for loss
and disruption when it happens.
No business is safe from network
failure, whether it's POS transactions
and credit card processing, cloudbased SaaS, productivity applications or
branch-office connections, always-on
connectivity is crucial for business
operations. The goal of a business
continuity solution is to minimize

potential network disruptions and keep
the business running. Simply stated,
a business continuity solution should
sense when a primary WAN connection
has failed and seamlessly "failover" to
a backup Internet connection. When
the primary connection is restored,
the solution should "failback" to
the primary connection. Traditional
business continuity solutions were
using either a secondary wired
connection that matching the primary
or older wired technologies such as
analog, ISDN, T1/T3. Secondary wired
connections were never effective
because the wires were typically a part
of the same bundle from the central
office or point of presence (PoP) as the
primary connection.
No wired connection can deliver
100 percent uptime. Wireless WAN,
in particular 4G/LTE, has become the
technology of choice for business
continuity. It's convenient, costeffective and robust enough to be
used for the primary connection.
4G/LTE service is available virtually
everywhere and offers wireless
speeds faster than most home wired
broadband services, which is more
than adequate to keep a business
running when disruptions occur.
The advantages of 4G/LTE extend
to support mobile, pop-up stores,
temporary locations and other events
that need connectivity.
Managed Wireless WAN Failover
is a unique opportunity for carriers
to create value, differentiate service
offering and accelerate pro table
growth for their business. This, of
course, assumes that the carriers select
the right vendor's solution.
Successfully implementing a
Managed Wireless WAN Business
THE

Continuity solution requires a
purpose-built fully integrated
platform that's rapidly deployable,
cost-effective and remotely
manageable. The right solution will
not only address the clients' need
but also benefit the carriers' bottom
line and lower the total cost of
ownership (TCO).
Key Attributes of a Managed
WAN Failover Solution
* Multi-Carrier 4G/LTE support
Certified devices across all major
carriers
* Multi-WAN Interface Connectivity
EWAN, 4G/LTE or Dual Radio/
Carrier 4G/LTE; Select the best
platform for the application
* Flexible Network Configuration
Business continuity is not one
size fits all, the solution should
support various scenarios, such
as IP-Pass Through, VPN failover,
OOBM, VRRP
* Proactive Alerts with Notifications
Multi-level responses configurable
by function, type and thresholds
* Cloud-Managed Enabling rapid
deployment, remote provisioning,
real-time device monitoring,
troubleshooting and maintenance
from a single centralized
location
