MegaPath Corporation announced the launch of its “any-to-any” Broadband Managed Failover services, complementing its Wireless Managed Failover service released in June of this year. MegaPath’s Managed Failover services provide customers with a high-availability, cost-effective business continuity solution for maintaining critical business operations in the event that their primary data connection is disrupted, says the company.
MegaPath’s Managed Failover services give organizations the flexibility to select the backup service best suited for their business, including Wireless (3G, 4G and LTE depending on availability), Ethernet, T1, DSL and Cable.
The fully-automated services use CPE to actively monitor primary and backup broadband connections. In the event of an outage, the CPE instantly detects the circuit disruption and initiates failover, explains the company. At the same time, MegaPath’s Proactive Monitoring service detects that the primary circuit is down and initiates the troubleshooting and repair process within MegaPath’s Network Operations Center (NOC). Once the primary service is restored, the customer’s service automatically reverts back to the primary circuit.
“In today’s data-driven business environment, businesses require resilient, redundant network solutions that allow them to remain operational in the event of a primary circuit outage,” said Dan Foster, President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “MegaPath’s any-to-any Managed Failover solutions provide businesses with cost-effective, flexible backup options that maximize network availability and reduce exposure to business risks such as lost revenue, lost productivity, and customer dissatisfaction.”
MegaPath’s Managed Failover services offer service level agreements that guarantee 100% service availability for a primary MegaPath T1 and Ethernet circuit when failover is present.
