The unWired Approach - When Connectivity Is Critical
Redundancy is something that an increasing number of network administrators are building into their infrastructure.
The problem with building redundancy into a network is that it is only as strong as its weakest link, and in most cases that is an organizations Internet connection. By adding a Wireless Internet Connection to an existing Internet connection (T1, DSL, Cable) organizations can solve this problem without paying an arm and a leg.
Most redundancy solutions involve the use of two or more Leased Line connections. Even though there are multiple connections to the Internet, each connection is using the same medium, and thus the same path. When something happens to that path, both connections are affected.
Non-Redundant Lease Line Service
As seen in the illustration above, multiple connections that travel over the same path are not truly redundant, and thus are not effective in preventing external network outages.
T1, DSL or Cable +
The alternative to redundancy is the high cost of downtime. Typically, 60% of an organizationís downtime is caused by external network outages. Adding a Wireless Internet connection to a hardwired connection (T1, DSL, and Cable) creates diverse paths to the Internet and greatly reduces the chances of downtime.
Wireless Broadband Redundancy
Wireless broadband is unique in that it completely bypasses a customerís wired infrastructure and thus ensures a diverse path to the Internet.
As seen in the illustration above wireless broadband is able to provide three points of redundancy for Internet access connectivity. From building access to the final Internet hop, wireless broadband is one of the most reliable redundancy technologies available.
