What Happens When Your Network Goes Down?
Company Time Is Wasted
Without a network connection many employees are left without the capability to fulfill their work responsibilities. Paying all your affected employees while they aren’t able to work can amount to a high price that could be avoided with wireless failover.
Customers Are Negatively Affected
Customers are also affected by a network crash. In industries like healthcare and public transportation, the effect on customers or users can be drastic. In other scenarios, customers can grow frustrated if you aren’t able to meet their needs as you normally would with a functioning network. These negative effects are why so many businesses rely on wireless failover and internet failover solutions.
Revenue Is Lost

What to Look for in an LTE Failover Solution:
Here are three crucial factors to consider when choosing the right LTE failover solution for your business.
Not every business needs the same amount of connection to run at full capacity. It is important to determine precise needs based on the size of your business and its data, so that you can avoid paying too much for your failover solution plan (whether you chose a plan too large and are using much less than you’re paying for, or a plan too small resulting in overage fees).
Internet failover solutions require different hardware options, from routers to battery backup systems. Before choosing a solution, you’ll want to make sure that your operation’s physical layout fits the failover solution you choose. You’ll also need to be aware of gateway device options and management options. For instance, some solutions will need a power source or server to connect to. You want to choose a solution that your business can support.
One of the most important considerations is finding an affordable solution. You want to choose a solution that provides the connectivity you need with a price that fits your budget. Most internet backup solutions use similar price structures; a monthly fee to maintain service and to cover a certain amount of data, should you need it that month. Then, there’s an overage fee for if you use more than the set amount of data.
One thing to beware of is that many provider’s pricing options may seem reasonable at first glance, but will add up quickly if you ever do need to rely on them. The reason for this is that the amount of data covered in the plan is actually relatively small compared to how much data it would realistically take to run your business in the case of an outage. Make sure to assess how much data would be used per hour to keep your business running so that you can make a better informed decision when choosing a failover solution plan.
