Be Ready: Protect Against Weather or Man-made Related Network Outages

Business continuity is critical to any effective network strategy, providing communications integrity and peace of mind. The appropriate right-sized network can prepare your enterprise for network outages.  When your network design has redundancy built into it you can count on your keeping your customer experience intact and eliminating employee downtime.

Ventus Managed Network-as-a-Service delivers comprehensive, secure network redundancy via secondary cellular or broadband connectivity. In the event of a primary network outage, Ventus routers automatically detect the drop and seamlessly fail over to the secondary network until primary service returns. 

Including a failover network is an important part of any business continuity plan for any office, branch, and retail enterprises network.  Derek Alos, Operations Specialist at All Waste Inc. commented on the importance of an office network design that includes a failover network, "At 2 AM our primary internet went down and did not return until 6 AM. During that time, Ventus failover network took over, keeping phone lines, security cameras, and truck fleet communications online." For All Waste their business relies on its' fleet data sending GPS information, weights of the dumpsters, and pictures of any issues. He continued, "Without Ventus we would have lost all of that data."

The benefits of Ventus Managed Network-as-a-Service are infinite. Right-size your network and get more than self-monitoring, get assurance and maximum uptime.
